One reporter might just be reprimanded for a careless statement, following Nipsey Hussle’s death.
Los Angeles hero Nipsey Hussle was laid to rest last week. And only days after his death, FOX News reporter Laura Ingraham is already making laughable statements about the iconic rapper. On the Ingraham Angle Show which airs on American news network FOX News, Laura Ingraham made some insensitive statements only days after Hussle’s untimely death. She went on to mock Nipsey’s collaboration with YG on the track ‘FDT F*ck Donald Trump.’ Speaking in bad taste and insensitive to the loss of his family, she went on to ask if the track was related to the high unemployment rates in the African American community.
The 55-year-old news anchor will now contend with the Hip Hop community as California-born rapper. The Game has led a revolt against the station and the conversative show. According to the Shaderoom, Ingraham laughed as she reported on the sad memorial ceremony that was held at the Staples Center, with 21,000 people in attendance.
Aside from scoffing at the memorium of the Grammy-nominated rapper, Ingraham went on to lash out at Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan Sr. for mispronouncing Nipsey Hussle’s name as ‘Nipsey Russell’ as he gave his tribute during the 4-hour long ceremony. However, what Laura did not know is that Nipsey born Ermias Joseph Asghedom got his stage name from the comedian Nipsey Russell.
Since calling for support on the boycott of FOX News, The Game has received support from renown producer Yung Berg. Christian Ward also known as Yung Berg, wrote, “she gotta go ASAP Pressure Must Be Applied. Blatant Racism On Tv @foxnews ”
Power 105 ‘The Breakfast Club’ show host Angela Yee also took to Twitter to shame the reporter for her mean-spirited comments.
American rapper, songwriter The Game has made it clear that he demands change for the sake of Nipsey’s legacy. He wrote, “this is not a game & my brother’s 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 !!!!! ”
A friend to Nip, The Game went on to demand, ” @foxnews fires this disrespectful cunt by tomorrow, Monday morning or you will lose millions of viewers one person at a time until it drastically affects your ratings, views, etc… if our demographic doesn’t affect 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. “

Meanwhile, as investigations into Nipsey Hussle’s death continue, a man connected to the ‘Ocean Views’ rapper has been taken into custody. Essence Magazine confirmed, “the Los Angeles Police Department has taken Kerry Lathan into custody at a downtown L.A. jail. Lathan had just been released last month after serving 20 years on murder charges when he went to meet Hussle outside his Marathon Clothing store. Hussle had apparently invited Lathan to the store to give him fresh clothes before meeting with friends and family.”
