Attacks on Fox News host Laura Ingraham haven’t stopped, despite the weekend break. Twitter users of color, known as #BlackTwitter, were relentless in holding Ingraham accountable for her racism during her show last week.
“Yesterday in L.A., thousands lined the streets to say goodbye to rapper Nipsey Hussle,” a sarcastic Ingraham said with a broad grin. “Now this dear artist recently released a song called ‘FDT’ – F Donald Trump.”
The lower third of the screen proclaimed: “Nipsey Hussle’s Wholesome Song Featuring Donald Trump.”
Y’all got on television and made an attempt to make *Nipsey Hussle* look bad, but ended up making yourself look dumb as fuck @IngrahamAngle
Guess we all look alike huh♂️ The rapper *YG* is the person who made that song.

“So is that line referring to the lowest unemployment ever?” Ingraham said, referring to the low rates of unemployment for Black Americans. The rate of unemployment began to trend down with policies put in place by the previous administration, but President Donald Trump continues to take credit.
As a fact-check, Nipsey Hussle was merely featured in the video “FDT,” it was YG who was behind the song. Ingraham appears not to know the difference between the two black men.
Ingraham quoted the chorus of “FDT,” which encourages young voters to cast ballots based on the racism within the Trump campaign.
“God Bless,” she closed.
The internet let her have it:
@IngrahamAngle what a trashy bitch you are!!! Ya I said it

@IngrahamAngle how dare you disrespect a person that died to the perpetuated systematic failure that is designed for people of color to fail. The way your mind is set is clouded with ignorance. I can only imagine what you say behind closed doors. The degenerate DNA strikes again

@IngrahamAngle That report about @NipseyHussle was tasteless. To talk down/mock somebody who isn’t here to defend themselves is as low as it gets regardless of political views. Don’t apologize, just realize the toxicity of it and learn from the situation. #TheMarathonContinues

I wouldn't presume to judge her. I've been a believer for 48 yrs now. speak in tongues, had dreams & visions, had the Holy Spirit direct & speak to my heart, etc. Believers are cleansed& ready for heaven, by the blood of Jesus. this poor girl needs the Holy Spirit to change her.

But you laugh at the death of a black man who was a leader for his community and create a false narrative for your viewers to belittle his legacy. You’re a reporter with no knowledge on what you’re talking about, isn’t that ironic?

@IngrahamAngle you racist wide headed bitch. You would think w/ all that head, there’d be something in it other than air. The irony of your president calling every other outlet fake news, meanwhile you mock a dead man falsely report his art to fit your bigoted narrative.

@IngrahamAngle soooooo do you plan on issuing a retraction about confusing @NipseyHussle with @YG …. and possibly maybe just an apology or maybe promising to research things better as a journalist ♀️
— Yanet (@_Yanetliza_) April 14, 2019
@IngrahamAngle you should be embarrassed and ashamed of yourself and I hope you’re ready to lose your job, you disgusting ignorant trash ass bitch

What we gotta do to get @IngrahamAngle fired. I’m tired of this shit.

FOX cannot keep black celebrities straight. RE: Aretha and Patti LaBelle.
