Nipsey Hussle – Fox News Host Laura Ingraham Accused of Mocking Rapper, Petition Calls For Her Termination
Fox news correspondent Laura Ingraham is facing lots of heat for making comments about Nipsey Hussle.
She is accused of laughing and mocking the late rapper while reporting on the thousands of people who celebrated his life last week. She also identified the incorrect rapper while reporting.
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

A petition on Change.org is demanding that she be removed from FOX News and all news networks. It reads,
“The anchor/host of FOX News Laura Ingraham has a history of racial, disrespectful comments towards minorities and has yet to receive any disciplinary actions. Her comments following the late great Hip-Hop artist Nipsey Hussle passing and African Americans. Were disrespectful and falsely reported. With this being a legend that did so much for the community, in which has been recognized by the City of Los Angels and many others. Laura Ingraham should be ashamed or her self for allowing her opinions, corrupt her position. Also, If the shoe were on the other foot and this were a African or Hispanic person reporting about a white person who died. Their jobs would be taken from them with a slew of harsh comments following it! This is unacceptable and she needs to be disciplined like any other professional would for her actions like.. (ie; CEO of Papa John’s, H&M CEO, Louis Vuitton etc..)”
As of now, it’s received 181 signatures, and the number continues to grow.
Rappers and celebrities also called out Ingraham for the what they consider an insensitive comment.
Ingraham and FOX have yet to respond.
