The Game Brutally Slams News Reporter Over Her 'Disrespectful' Nipsey Hussle Comments

Frederick M. Brown

Hussle, whose real name Ermias Asghedom, was shot and killed outside his South Los Angeles Marathon Clothing store on March 31.

During Friday's episode of "The Ingraham Angle", after saying that "thousands lined the streets to say goodbye to rapper Nipsey Hussle", she and her co-host giggled and mocked "FDT", Hussle's song that condemned Donald Trump in no uncertain terms. She then made a quip defending President Donald Trump for "the lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African Americans".

Aside from mentioning the turnout for the services, Ingraham ignored the rest of the information about Hussle and his death.

California rapper The Game had a similar reaction, warning Fox News to fire "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".

"We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole", The Game wrote on Instagram. "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".

Snoop Dogg added simply, "I'm in".

Over the past few hours, various musicians from Game to T.I. have ripped Ingraham for laughing during a Nipsey Hussle funeral service segment.

"This is Disgusting! You both are vile despicable, poor excuses for people". Laura Ingraham should be ashamed or her self for allowing her opinions, corrupt her position.

Several rappers tore into Ingraham and called for her immediate dismissal for mocking a murder victim, USA Today reports.

Tank even shared a petition link, which garnered more than 11,000 signatures, calling for Ingraham's firing.

The hook of the song says repeatedly "f-k Donald Trump".

Some prominent music figures were not cool with Ingraham's commentary on Hussle's memorial and took to social media to express their frustration and desire to get Ingraham axed from Fox or TV, period. The next month, she said that Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg "whines" about his college applications being rejected, which started a swift boycott from advertisers.
