Lil Dicky Takes Down “White Dude” Video from Youtube

Lil Dicky removed “White Dude” From Youtube, claiming he was not proud of the satirical song.

Dave Burd, who goes by the stage name Lil Dicky, sat down for an interview with GQ, where he spoke briefly about his past music and decisions. On the topic of satirical songs that boosted him to fame, Burd did not feel as proud of them as others may. “White Dude” is a song where Burd talks about the privilege he has for being a white male. He expressed how happy and lucky he felt that to be a “white dude” instead of another race or gender in the song.

“I don’t like making jokes I’m not proud of.”

Burd didn’t seem embarrassed or regretful for the song or the video, but simply just not a fan of it. “It just didn’t feel like a joke I was proud of,” he said in the interview. He attributed his growing maturity to the friends he met while filming his FXX show Dave. He understood struggles, specifically black struggles, after having real conversations with his close friends of other races. Because of this, Burd was less fond of the satire he brought to the issues in the past.

“I’m very confident that if I had 10 hours to spend with somebody, that they would like me.”

Burd admitted that he wanted to be a comedian because he wanted people to like him and constantly sought that. This reflects on his feelings about the “White Dude” song and why he has done a lot to change his image in recent years. Hopefully, this will come out more in season two of his hit show Dave, which will release on FXX on June 16 and Hulu the next day.
