Wiz Khalifa was a dapper rapper at the 2016 Golden Globes Awards on Sunday night (Jan. 10). But it wasn’t his wardrobe that had everyone talking on social media. It was his tender kiss that he gave to his mother on the red carpet.
The Taylor Gang leader was in attendance to celebrate his (and singer Charlie Puth) Golden Globe nomination for best original song for “See You Again from Furious 7. For his date, he brought his mother, Peachie Wimbush, to the star-studded ceremony.
The mother and son looked great in their matching black-and-white outfits. Wizzy wore a straight-forward black suit with a printed tie, while his mom donned a white long-sleeved poplin shirt and a black high-waisted gown.
The dynamic duo sealed their moment on the red carpet with a kiss, which sparked a huge reaction on social media. Some fans thought that it was inappropriate for Wiz to kiss his mom on the lips, even suggesting that it was incest.
“I think wiz khalifa is a little too old to be kissing his mom on the lips,” wrote one follower. Another commenter tweeted, “I can see kissing your mom but on the lips wiz khalifa that’s too far.
However, others thought it was a beautiful moment between son and mom. “My aesthetic is Wiz Khalifa adorably bringing his mom as his date to the Golden Globes,” tweeted one fan.
Ms. Winbush couldn’t be more proud of her son. On her Instagram account, she posted a collage of herself and her dapper son on the red carpet.
“Dreams do come true,” she wrote. “Wishing you and charlieputh luck tonight.”
Meanwhile, Wiz is ecstatic over his first-ever Golden Globe nomination. “[It’s] crazy as heck!” he told E! News. “But I’m dealing with it.”
