DJ Khaled slammed for his reaction to son winning student of the month at school assembly

DJ Khaled slammed for his reaction to son winning student of the month at school assembly

People criticised the DJ for taking the spotlight away in a moment about his son

People have slammed DJ Khaled's reaction to his son winning an award at school.

The DJ's son was announced as the 'Student of the Month' at his school, and the proud dad got up from his seat and walked to the front where he gave his son a congratulatory hug.

But many people on the internet were left unimpressed with the move, accusing DJ Khaled of stealing the spotlight from his son.

People took to social media to share their views on the incident, with one joking: "This man gonna give a speech at his own funeral."

Another implied that the DJ should have stayed in his seat, writing: "Proceeds to steal the entire moment from his son by getting up and walking to the stage."

A third posted: "Bro is so desperate for attention he can't sit back and let his kid have a little."

But other people disagreed with this, suggesting that maybe he just wanted to run up and congratulate his son.

DJ Khaled went up to congratulate his son.

One person wrote: "Are you telling a father how to congratulate his son. Some parents don’t even show up for events like this."

Another suggested that perspective can make things very different, writing: "That’s your perspective. You see him as 'DJ Khaled'.

"All he sees is 'My dad is so excited by my achievement he came up and hugged me in front of everyone'. "

A third wrote: "He didn't make anything about himself, he went to go congratulate his son."

This comes after DJ Khaled opened up about how he changed his DJ name in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in New York.

His son won student of the month.

The DJ has previously used the name 'Arab Attack' for his music, but made the switch as a mark of respect.

Explaining the decision, he said: “I dropped it because, after the whole 9/11 thing, you know I’m not one of those ignorant people. I’m a positive person.

"‘Arab Attack’ was mainly used for music, like we attack you with music, but when 9/11 happened, I said, you know what, I’m not gonna use that name no more. It wasn’t respectful to the people that went through some stuff.”

He added: "I’m not about no violence and I’m not about beef, but in our music, sometimes we have to tell stories, real-life stories.

"But personally, as a person, I like to keep love and peace as much as you can in this world, you know?"
