Boosie Badazz isn’t the type of rapper to hold his tongue.
From sharing his thoughts on Dwyane Wade’s transgender child to fantasizing about one-on-one time with Rihanna, the Baton Rouge native refuses to be canceled.
On Tuesday (April 20), as the world processed the news of George Floyd-killing officer Derek Chauvin receiving guilty verdicts, Boosie Badazz felt like the pending sentence should include the type of treatment that makes it hard to sit down.
“[Derek Chauvin] lucky he ain’t going to jail n LOUISIANA … #bosscallwouldabeenmade,” Boosie Badazz tweeted while adding a pair of eggplant emojis to symbolize his idea of justice: prison rape.
After serving five years in the Louisiana prison system for drug possession and famously beating a permanent Death Row stay, there’s no question as to who Boosie Badazz knows capable of such acts.
However, the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution prevents “cruel or unusual punishment” so … Boosie Badazz may be out of luck.
President Joe Biden addressed the nation on Tuesday, specifying “No one should be above the law” in reaction to the Derek Chauvin verdict.
He echoed similar thoughts on Twitter writing, “Today’s verdict sends that message, but it is not enough. We can’t stop here.
“In order to deliver real change and reform, we can and we must do more to reduce the likelihood that tragedies like this ever occur.”
Chauvin was found guilty on the counts of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter months after George Floyd’s death was officially ruled a homicide. Second-degree murder can carry a sentence up to 40 years in prison, while the third-degree murder max is 25 years.
The manslaughter charge can impose a maximum sentence of 10 years. Judge Peter A. Cahill will decide if the prison time will run concurrently in the ensuing weeks.
Reactions to Boosie’s type of verdict went much differently, though. Check some of them below.
