Method Man Apologizes To Destiny's Child Over 2001 Incident During Janet Jackson’s "MTV Icon" Special

Method Man apologized to the members of Destiny’s Child for an incident that took place at Janet Jackson’s MTV Icon special in 2001. The Wu-Tang Clan rapper recalled the disrespectful moment during a recent interview with Math Hoffa.

He explained that the incident came at a time in his life when he had “low self-esteem” and it affected the way that he treated others.

“I didn’t like myself so I didn’t like anybody fucking else,” he began. “So that meant anything that would have come in my circumference at that point in time was gonna get it. My family went through a lot with my ass during that era, man. And I can admit that I did take a lot of my fucking misery out on them, and they did not deserve it. And I took some of my misery out on people at Def Jam that did not fucking deserve it.”

Method Man then revealed that he “had an episode with Beyoncé.”

He says that he met the singer as well as the rest of Destiny’s Child through Jay-Z at the MOBO Awards in 1999, describing them all as “very nice, very cordial and all that.”
