An episode of the British rap competition show The Jump Off was disrupted on Monday when one contestant’s rape threat led to an impromptu face-off with one of the judges.
The Independent reported that the incident began when MC Lighte The Boombox Genie rapped at his female opponent, MC D’Klastro, “No sexercise, b*tch. After this, in the alley you gonna get raped.”
The lights surrounding the stage immediately came on and the crowd began to jeer Lighte, who responded, “It’s a battle.” He then challenged the audience, “Suck my d*ck. You do better, come on stage.”
At that point, one of the judges, Radio 1 presenter DJ Nihal, accepted Lighte’s dare and responded with insults of his own.
“Misogynistic prick, talking you think you’re sick,” Nihal said. “You fat fuc*ing idiot rapping on this chick. This is The Jump Off, this is the big stage, this is Nihal, feel this fuc*ing rage, you fat f*ck. What happens when you shave? You cut yourself out comes gravy and lard, you’re not brave.”
Though Nihal appeared to win the support of the crowd, D’Klastro never got a chance to respond to either man’s comments, as she left the stage before the segment ended.
Watch the impromptu confrontation, as posted by The Jump-Off on Tuesday, below.
Dem lawmaker serves notice to Hope Hicks that Trump won’t be able to save her when he grills her during Wednesday’s hearing
On Saturday, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) gave MSNBC's Alex Witt a brief rundown of what he wants to learn from former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks at her closed-door testimony next week — and warned that if Hicks tries to use executive privilege as a shield, Democrats will not stand for it.
"Let's talk about Hope Hicks," said Witt. "What do you expect to hear from her that she has not already offered in testimony?"
"Here's what's important about Hope Hicks," said Deutch. "She was a key part of the Trump campaign, which is a large part of the report is focused on. She was a key part of the Trump Administration in the early days, and that's the reason that she's a prominent figure in the Mueller report."
Furious Dem lawmaker blows up on Trump over his Iran war escalation: ‘What the hell did he think was going to happen?’
On Saturday, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), a 2020 candidate for president, told MSNBC's Alex Witt that the rapidly escalating tensions between the United States and Iran are President Donald Trump's fault — and explained how he would do things differently if he is elected.
"Before we get to the debate, I just want to ask you, if you were the president right now, how would you be addressing the situation with Iran?" asked Witt. "Do you think you would try to de-escalate the tensions and move forward in some fashion? Have you given some thought to that?"
"Of course you want to de-escalate it," said Ryan. "The war in the Middle East at this point, in addition to what's going on in Iraq and Syria and all of the other activity there, would be a disaster."
Trump’s ‘devastating’ internal polls are a red flag that he’s doomed in 2020: political analyst
On Saturday, The Nation writer John Nichols told MSNBC that President Donald Trump's new internal polls showing him losing key states are "devastating" — and show why his path to re-election may be slipping out of his grasp.
"I would just emphasize these polls are more than a wake-up call. They're pretty devastating numbers," said Nichols. "We can get excited about a close race in Texas or even some good numbers out of Florida. But remember that for Donald Trump, the key is the Great Lakes states."
"What these internal polls tell us parallels what we're seeing from publicly done polling in those regions," said Nichols. "Two things very significant. Number one, there is an energized Democratic base, more energized, it appears, than 2016. And additionally one subset of this that's a really big deal, major issue for Trump, and that is that in the rural areas where Democrats severely underperformed in 2016, it's what we are seeing in the public polls and I suspect top line numbers from what we're seeing in other places suggest we're seeing rural areas begin to tick back up for Democrats going to that 40 percent number."
