Laura Ingraham Under Fire After Laughing And Demeaning Nipsey Hussle
Since Nipsey Hussle passed away two weeks ago there has been a great outpouring of love and positivity surrounding him and the legacy he left behind as a man of the people who sought to empower his hood. Unfortunately Fox News’ cornflake crusted host Laura Ingraham failed to show even a modicum of respect toward the late rapper and philanthropist in her coverage of his memorial.
In fact, Ingraham and her co-host could only laugh and make jokes while inaccurately crediting Nipsey, who is featured on the song, as the creator of YG’s “F*** Donald Trump.”
We went searching on Ingraham’s Twitter for signs of an apology but instead found… more jokes. She actually retweeted this ignorance from her co-host Raymond Arroyo.
Her callous actions did not go unnoticed. The Game was one of the first to call for an immediate firing of Ingraham, while others rallied behind him, pledging to boycott “Ingraham Angle” sponsors.
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… 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. Nips passing nor his legacy is to be taken lightly as there will be consequences for any disrespect now or in the future as long as I have a voice !!! I’m asking all of my followers, fans, friends & family to spread this video with demands of #LauraIngrahams termination immediately !!!!! This is not a game & my brothers untimely demise has noticeably shifted the world & brought people from all ethnicity’s together in mourning. There is a power in that, that will be used & action will be taken from now going forward. We will not be accepting any apology from her… we want her fired, PERIOD !!!!! #TheMarathonContinues 🏁🏁🏁 DO NOT LET THIS SLIDE MY PEOPLE. I know you can feel the energy NIP left all of us.. I know you feel it !!!!! 🙏🏾
