The NRA Exposes Rapper for Comments He Made About Veterans

Hip-hop artist Common let the National Rifle Association (NRA) have it from the stage of the Academy Awards, and the NRA fired back on Twitter by stressing their commitment to veterans.

“.@common @TheAcademy: This is what the #NRA and its members stand for. #Oscars,” NRATV wrote on Twitter. They also included a video of a veteran talking about standing for the national anthem.


Common performed an anthem on Sunday he re-worked from the movie “Marshall.” He connected the song to recent events like the school shooting in Parkland, Florida last month. Common also referenced the NFL controversy over kneeling for the National Anthem. The hip-hop artist rapped “a knee we take for our soul’s sake.”

Common also rapped: “On Oscar night, this is the dream we tell. A land where Dreamers live and freedom dwells. Immigrants get the benefits, we put up monuments to the feminists,” Common said.

“Tell the NRA [National Rifle Association] they ain’t God’s way. And to the people of Parkland, we say Ase,” he added. This line was in reference to last month’s high school massacre and a West African philosophy.

NRATV slammed Common for reacting to its original tweet with laughing emojis.

“Here’s @common laughing at a message about honoring our fallen heroes minutes after he went on @TheAcademy stage and said #NRA members are ‘in God’s way.’ #Oscars,” NRATV said.
