Snoop Dogg, The Game and other rappers are calling for Fox News to dismiss one of it’s more popular hosts, Laura Ingraham, over what they considered to be insensitive comments made by her about deceased rapper Nipsey Hussle.
The rapper’s problem was with Ingram bringing up Hussle’s disagreement with President Donald Trump, on the day of the rapper’s funeral.
Hussle was shot and killed outside his clothing store in Los Angeles just weeks ago.
The Game said in his Instagram post that the network fire the “disrespectful c*** by tomorrow, Monday morning,” saying that if they didn’t they would lose “millions of viewers” and if that didn’t work, they would “STOP support of ALL SPONSORS immediately.”
“We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole,” The Game wrote. “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!!!”
Snoop Dogg, who was close with the recently departed Hussle, commented, “I’m in.”

Additionally, R&B artist Tank shared a link on his Instagram with a petition that called for the immediate firing of Ingraham.
The segment that landed the longtime Fox host in trouble was one in which she appears to have poked fun at one of Hussle’s hits, rapper YG’s hits songs “FDT,” which was released with Hussle in 2016. The song includes the chorus, “F— Donald Trump.”
“Now, this dear artist recently released a song called FDT, ‘F Donald Trump,'” Ingraham said, before playing a clip from the music video.
“OK, that’s a very creative refrain,” Ingraham added. “The chorus that goes on and on, is that related to lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African-Americans?”
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
