Laura Ingraham, host of the Fox News show The Ingraham Angle, used a portion of Friday’s program to acknowledge Nipsey Hussle’s memorial service in L.A., and talk about how great of a person he was, and applaud him for the impact he made on his community. Oh, who are we kidding?!
This is the same woman who once told LeBron James and Kevin Durant to “shut up and dribble” over their remarks criticizing Donald Trump on a network that recently labeled three South American countries on their chyron as “3 Mexican countries.” Fox News and their hosts have pretty much perfected the art of being inconsiderate assholes, whether their actions are always intentional or not.
During their coverage of Nipsey’s memorial service, Ingraham tapped into that mindset again by trying to degrade the late rapper by showing her viewers the music video from one of the songs off his catalog. “Yesterday in L.A., thousands lined the streets to say goodbye to rapper Nipsey Hussle,” she said. “Now this dear artist recently released a song called ‘FDT’ – F Donald Trump.”
While Nipsey is featured on “FDT,” the short clip that was aired showed zero visuals of the late rapper.
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

The clip was followed by nonsensical commentary between Ingraham and that other guy, but let’s not give it any more attention than it deserves. Ingraham came off even more insensitive than she intended with bad information. What more do you expect from Fox News?
