Disrespectful: Fox News Anchor Mocks Late Rapper Nipsey Hussle By Laughing At Him Hours After His Funeral
Laura, You In Danger Girl
Here's Laura Ingraham mocking a murder victim, just hours after he was laid to rest, because he opposed Trump 3 years ago. (Also, the man rapping in that video is YG, a person who is not Nipsey Hussle.) For shame.pic.twitter.com/02iBYdr5wo

First up, XXL reports that Nipsey’s close friend The Game caught wind of the segment and went off on Instagram with a lengthy post calling for Laura’s immediate termination; where he also said in part;
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 !!!
Game wasn’t the only person to call out Laura for her behavior. Twitter instantly let their feelings be known as well.
I’ve been forced to download twitter and retweet this. I don’t think this is reaching out far enough. All I’ve been hearing for the last week is about @NipseyHussle death but I’m not hearing anything about his grave being spat on. A disrespectful message from @IngrahamAngle to.. https://t.co/6n2fEywtNh

In the immortal words of Ice Cube "Here's what they think of you" Now that they have Trump in office backing them up they don't even hide their racism anymore. Front and center on your TV, social media and radio everyday https://t.co/Qur49pXpQ5

This is probably one of those times when the rule “If you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all” comes into play because mocking a man murdered by gun violence on the day of his funeral AND trying to support Donald Trump at the same time was just tacky.
