Justin Bieber slams Fox News' Laura Ingraham over Nipsey Hussle's funeral reporting, calls for host to be fired
Justin Bieber joins The Game, T.I and many other artists in calling out fans to ensure Laura Ingraham is fired by the network
Justin Bieber is one of the many artists slamming Fox News host Laura Ingraham over her recent comments about the late rapper, Nipsey Hussle. The 25-year-old singer took to Instagram, noting a hashtag to spread awareness on Ingraham's reporting of Hussle's funeral.
The conservative TV personality angered many fans and celebrities alike when in a segment the day after his memorial, she sarcastically referred to him as "this dear artist." Narrating that he had recently released a song called "FDT (F**k Donald Trump)," Fox News played a portion of the song, and she sarcastically called it a "very creative refrain."
"Laura Ingraham absolutely disgusting what you did on national television," Justin Bieber wrote on Instagram Thursday. "How dare you laugh in the face of a person who has passed on. Doesn’t matter who it is. But disrespecting someone’s who was a pillar in the community and did right by people?"
He further wrote; "Did you not think about the family who just lost a love[d] one and now have to see you mock him on national television. It’s absurd and you should be fired period. #repost #spreadawareness complain to Fox Network whatever we can do."
In less than 2 hours, over 430,000 fans liked the post and several artists commented "facts" and "fired." Bieber is not the only one to call for Ingraham's dismissal. Rappers including The Game and T.I. were quick to call on Fox News when the segment aired. "We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole. I will use my platform & call on my peers to do the same," The Game wrote, even threatening the network of losing millions of viewers.
T.I. added, "Neither of you WILL EVER know or experience the level of love, appreciation and respect that Nip has… EVEN IN DEATH!!! So let that sizzle in ya lil hateful,demonic spirits."
During Wednesday’s episode of 'The Ingraham Angle,' the host took aim at Chrissy Teigen and described her as being "known for her vicious attacks on President Trump." She even made fun of the cookbook author’s qualifications and her being on the Time 100 list, saying liking to eat was "innovative."
The queen of Twitter as Teigen is, responded by calling Ingraham a "corny monster," and referenced the host’s past controversies over race, and called her a white supremacist. "When time comes out with their 100 most influential white supremacists list, I promise I won’t question your worthiness," the model tweeted.
