Rappers Demand Fox News Presenter Is Fired For Mocking Nipsey Hussle

Calls have mounted from rappers demanding Fox News fire host Laura Ingraham for her insensitive coverage of Nipsey Hussle’s funeral. On Friday, just after Hussle’s funeral, Ingraham joked about a 2016 song by artist YG called “FDT,” or “Fuck Donald Trump,” in which Hussle was featured. Ingraham misleadingly stated that Hussle had released the song, making no reference to YG before airing part of the music video in which Hussle is nowhere to be seen. “That’s a very creative refrain, very catchy,” she remarked, asking if the line was “related to the lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African Americans.” Ingraham and network contributor Raymond Arroyo then laughed over Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan calling Hussle “Nipsey Russell” in a eulogy, seemingly by mistake.
