Rapper Killer Mike gets shut down by TV show host Joy-Ann Reid after he tried to school her on Instagram about 'H&M'
Killer Mike tried to school Joy-Ann Reid but tables turn as she teaches him a lesson which he will never forget.
Killer Mike seems to be landing himself in trouble time and again because of his words and it looks like he hasn't learnt his lessons yet. Recently, the rapper called out MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid over a misunderstanding in one of her posts. On Saturday (April 7), Joy posted a picture with a caption "And not to be outdone… @glamluxxe and Cynthia, who rocked the H&M for our Elgin Baylor shoot! #AMJoy #GlamSquad."
Looking at this, Mike thought that Joy was referring to clothing company when she wrote 'H&M'. The company had landed itself in controversy because of a racist ad. Taking this into consideration, Mike had a comment prepared for Joy and did not hesitate to post it. “So, me doing an interview about black gun ownership with the NRA is ‘bad,’ but you promoting a company that tagged a black child a monkey is ‘good,’ cool,’ and ‘acceptable,’” he wrote.
Little did he know that Joy had a completely different take on the caption that she had posted and made sure that Mike understood the same. "“H&M” stands for “hair and makeup,” Mike. The two women beside me in this pic did my hair (H) and makeup (M) for a shoot. The blouse I’m wearing is by @norisolferrari and I doubt you can buy it at the retail chain you’re thinking of," Joy wrote.
"(I got it from the designer via a stylist.) And here I was thinking you were an intellectual and not just the guy who hangs out in the sunken place talking guns with the NRA’s “official black guy” who literally changed his last name to “black," she continued. Even though both the comments have since been deleted, Mike did take this into consideration and understood how he should not jump to conclusions.
He took to Twitter to apologize in a series of tweets for what had happened. "Yup I got educated and I appreciated. I’m making sure I’m staying with the people tho no more outta line with me," he wrote. "To Be Unclear is to be u kind taught that by publicist @Farmer8J . My apologies for my misunderstanding @JoyAnnReid and I hope we get that Black Gun owner Minus the NRA interview. Love and Respect thanks for the correct."
"So egg on my face and all I’m happy that the convo on #BlackGunOwnerShip will happen. Thank u @JoyAnnReid for “getting me together” on H&M and making sure this important convo can be had on an acceptable platform." This is not the first time that the rapper has landed himself in trouble. Previously, a video surfaced in which Mike was seen complaining about the Parkland shooting survivors walking out of school. He later apologized for the video.
