Jay Z played the role of a victim Saturday in his first words on the Barneys controversy -- releasing a whiny, self-serving statement that doesn't once criticize the department store or mention the black customers it's accused of racially profiling.
Instead, the Brooklyn-born rapper cries about the attention he's received in the press.
"Why am I being demonized, denounced and thrown on the cover of a newspaper for not speaking immediately?" Jay Z complains in the statement.
The hip-hop mogul has been under fire -- and deafeningly silent -- since the first allegation of racial profiling was splashed across the Daily News Wednesday.
