Both The Game and T.I. are no stranger to speaking out about things that upset the Los Angeles and Atlanta rappers.
The Game and Tip both recently spoke out on Instagram about a Fox News reporter who laughed while reporting on the late Nipsey Hussle’s funeral.
“So lemme tell you what’s going to happen here…. @foxnews fires this disrespectful c*** 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 !!!,” The Game wrote.
“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!”
T.I. shared the video of the reporter to his Instagram page too, and wrote, “This is Disgusting! You both are vile despicable, poor excuses for people. 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!!!!”
“Karma is constant & the laws of reciprocity ARE IN ORDER!!!! Neither of you WILL EVER know or experience the level of love, appreciation and respect that Nip has… EVEN IN DEATH!!! So let that sizzle in ya lil hateful,demonic spirits. And with that… I’m logging off IG at least a month or so…”
The Fox News reporter also erroneously reported that Nipsey Hussle created the song “FDT.”
Nipsey Hussle is featured on the track, but the song was created by YG.
