Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron Blasts Megan Thee Stallion For Calling Him Out In ‘Disgusting’ SNL Performance
Daniel Cameron, the Kentucky Attorney General, has responded to Megan Thee Stallion’s “Saturday Night Live” performance where she slammed him amid his decision in Breonna Taylor’s case.
During her performance, she used audio from activist Tamika Mallory who said:
“Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout Negroes that sold our people into slavery.”
He has received lots of criticism for failing to charge the three officers involved in Breonna Taylor’s death with the crime. The only charges were against Former Det. Brett Hankison, who was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for shots that went into Breonna Taylor’s neighbor’s wall during gunfire. The police executed a no-knock warrant at Breonna Taylor’s apartment, leading to her death in March.
During an appearance on Fox & Friends Tuesday (Oct. 6th), Daniel Cameron responded to Megan Thee Stallion’s performance and said:
“Let me just say I agree that we need to love and protect our Black women. There’s no question about that. But the fact that someone would get on national television and make disparaging comments about me because I’m simply trying to do my job is disgusting.”
“But it’s not the first [time] we see this, and it certainly won’t be the last time we see this. At the end of the day, my responsibility is to provide facts and truth and represent and stand up for justice. I think what you saw there in that display, [is] someone who instead wants to fashion facts to a narrative. That narrative is simply not true in this particular case with Ms. Taylor.”
“Again, it is a tragedy what happened to her. But what you saw on the screen there and what your viewers saw is something that I’ve had to experience because I’m a black Republican, because I stand for truth and justice as opposed to giving in to a mob mentality. And those are the sorts of things that will be hurled at me in this job.”
He went on to say:
“The fact that a celebrity who I’ve never met before wants to make those sorts of statements, they don’t hurt me. But what it does, it exposes the type of intolerance… and the hypocrisy… What you saw there is inconsistent with tolerance. It’s her espousing intolerance because I’ve decided to stand up for truth and justice.”
He ended with:
“There are lot of folks who look like me that aren’t scared anymore – that are tired of the comments and the derogatory remarks because of our political philosophy. Enough is enough, we’re gonna continue to stand up for truth and justice in this job and everything else we do in this country.”
