Actor and activist D.L. Hughley is furious about the recent shooting of Terence Crutcher in Tulsa, Oklahoma. But he’s also using it as an opportunity to slam former NFL players Jerry Rice, Ray Lewis and others who attacked Colin Kaepernick for his silent protest.
“I wish Americans were as upset at #TerenceCrutcher getting shot DOWN as they are at #ColinKaepernick not standing UP!#ItsTooMuch #TeamDl” he tweeted with a video.
“All the people from Jerry Rice to Jason Whitlock, to Ray Lewis….. who were so upset about Colin Kaepernick… not standing up.. I wish all of them were just as upset about Terence Crutcher getting shot down…”
When the news broke of the shooting, Hughley immediately took to social media to question America’s priorities. “Another unarmed black man gunned down by police on video, but Zika is an Epidemic? I’ll worry about a Mosquito when it can carry a badge!” he tweeted early Monday.

Trump appointee has a Twitter meltdown after public reporting on her far-right beliefs
A bigoted Trump appointee at the famed U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has just quit but not before announcing she is teaming up with infamous conspiracy theorists Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman at a Thursday press conference, where she will discuss her "Christian beliefs."
Merritt Corrigan, who once complained the U.S. is in the clutches of a “homo-empire” that pushes a “tyrannical LGBT agenda,” according to Pro-Publica, made several announcements via her now unlocked but mostly-all deleted Twitter account.
MSNBC’s ‘demotion’ of ‘feckless’ Chuck Todd celebrated: ‘Hurray! More Nicolle, less Chuck’
MSNBC host Chuck Todd was moved to an earlier timeslot where his show, "Meet the Press Daily," will likely earn lower ratings. Meanwhile, Nicolle Wallace seems to have been promoted to a two-hour timeslot leading into primetime.
Wallace, who has extensive experience in Washington, previously served in George W. Bush's White House until abandoning the GOP as the era of Trump came to power.
Todd has made several missteps where he's been unwilling to press GOP leaders who lie openly and obviously on camera.
George Conway blasts ‘blundering cheat’ Trump in new op-ed: ‘His name should live in infamy’
Prominent conservative attorney George T. Conway III has written yet another Washington Post op-ed blasting President Donald Trump.
"If there’s one thing we know about President Trump, it’s that he lies and he cheats. Endlessly," Conway wrote. "And shamelessly. But still, mostly, incompetently."
"So it should have come as no surprise that Trump finally went where no U.S. president had ever gone before. In a tweet last week, he actually suggested that the country 'Delay the Election.' That trial balloon was a brazen effort to see if he can defraud his way into four more years in the White House," he explained. "And why not try? After all, Trump has managed to swindle his way through life, on matters large and small, essential and trivial."
