Fox News Host Laura Ingraham Not Only Laughs During Segment On Nipsey Hussle’s Memorial, But Shows A Video Of A Completely Different Rapper

Classless Fox News Host Laura Ingraham of The Ingraham Angle devoted a portion of her Friday program to mocking the death of a renowned rapper and providing false information.

It was just all in a day’s work over at Fox News.

Rap Artist Nipsey Hussle, whose real name is Ermias Asghedom, was fatally shot on March 31 outside of his Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles along with two other people, both of whom survived.

The memorial service took place at the Staples Center with thousands in attendance to pay their respects. Mourners included Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder, as well as R&B singers Marsha Ambrosius, Anthony Hamilton and Jhené Aiko, according to Deadline.

Aside from mentioning the turnout for the services, Ingraham ignored the rest of the information about Hussle and his death.

Instead, Ingraham focused on mocking a song in which Hussle disparaged Donald Trump.

She also patronizingly referred to Hussle as a “dear artist” and showed her viewers one of the rapper’s music videos.

But the person featured on the screen was the wrong rapper.

“Yesterday in L.A., thousands lined the streets to say goodbye to rapper Nipsey Hussle,” she said with a smirk.

“Now this dear artist recently released a song called ‘FDT’ – F Donald Trump.”

While Hussle is featured on the track, the song belongs to Compton rapper YG and appears on his 2016 album Still Brazy.

The segment Ingraham played featured YG for the entire duration, not Hussle.

Ingraham and journalist Raymond Arroyo giggled and mocked the song’s phrase, “f–k Donald Trump.”

Ingraham sarcastically remarked:

“Now that’s a very creative refrain.”

She went to make a racist remark while continuing to chuckle:

“So … the chorus it goes on and on. Is that related to the lowest unemployment ever basically for African Americans?”

Not only was she unsympathetic over the loss of a life, her report embodied irresponsible journalism, which is par for the course for Fox News.

Ingraham’s tactless coverage of the late rapper enraged Twitter.

Most other news channels would be remiss in overlooking the inspirational aspects of Hussle’s life and what he has done for his community.

But then again, this kind of positive information isn’t on brand for the conservative network.

Are we surprised? This is the same host who made fun of Marjory Stoneman High School survivor David Hogg for getting rejected from colleges and “whin[ing] about it,” and also told LeBron James and Kevin Durant to “shut up and dribble” after they criticized Trump.

Hussle’s close friend and rapper, The Game, launched a campaign by asking followers to have Ingraham fired.

“So lemme tell you what’s going to happen here…. @foxnews fires this disrespectful cunt by tomorrow, Monday morning or you will lose millions of viewers one person at a time until it drastically effects your ratings, views etc… if our demographic doesn’t effect that we will STOP support of ALL SPONSORS immediately !!!”

“We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole…Nips passing nor his legacy is to be taken lightly as there will be consequences for any disrespect now or in the future as long as I have a voice !!!”

“I’m asking all of my followers, fans, friends & family to spread this video with demands of #LauraIngrahams termination immediately !!!!!”

“This is not a game & my brothers untimely demise has noticeably shifted the world & brought people from all ethnicity’s together in mourning.”
