9064

The hip-hop community is calling for the firing of Fox News host Laura Ingraham following disrespectful comments made in the wake of Nipsey Hussle’s death.

During Friday’s “The Ingraham Angle,” the conservative commentator aired a segment about the slain rapper following his memorial service. She referred to YG’s song “FDT,” which was released three years ago, on which Nipsey was a featured guest.

“This dear artist recently released a song called ‘FDT,’ F Donald Trump,” said Ingraham before playing a clip of YG from the music video.

She then laughed while discussing the lyrics. “That’s a very catchy refrain,” she said to the other on-air personality, Raymond Arroyo, who also laughed and responded: “Very catchy.”

“So…the chorus it goes on and on… Is that related to the lowest unemployment ever basically for African Americans?” asked Ingraham.

The clip was posted online, prompting Nipsey’s friends including The Game to react and call for the firing of the conservative commentator.

“So lemme tell you what’s going to happen here…. @foxnews fires this disrespectful cunt by tomorrow, Monday morning or you will lose millions of viewers one person at a time until it drastically effects your ratings, views etc,” said Game. “If our demographic doesn’t effect that we will STOP support of ALL SPONSORS immediately !!! We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole. I will use my platform & call on my peers to do the same.”

Snoop Dogg responded to Game’s post, adding, “I’m in.”

T.I. also weighed in by reposting the clip and adding his own thoughts. “This is Disgusting! You both are vile despicable, poor excuses for people,” he said. “My expectations have already decreased so much for mankind in the past couple weeks that this hardly surprised me… especially from @foxnews But rest assured that sooner than later you’ll BOTH see… WE ALL GET OUR TURN TO LIVE THROUGH OUR OWN PERSONAL TRAGEDY… and watch how many people dance in the streets,laugh and crack distasteful inappropriate jokes when it’s YOUR TURN!!!!”
