T.I. Rips Rudy Giuliani for Dissing Beyonce
On Monday's episode of Fox & Friends, Rudy G criticized Queen Bey's set and called it "anti-police." He continued by saying, “I ran the largest and best police department in the world, the New York City Police Department. I saved more Black lives than any of those people you saw on stage by reducing crime, and particularly homicide, by 75 percent — of which maybe 4,000 or 5,000 were African-American young people, who are all alive today because of the policies I put in effect that weren’t in effect for 35 years."
Hey, Mr. Giuliani, here's the thing: even if that's true, what does it have to do with a Beyoncé performance? The Houston-born singer is simply expressing her art – in no way, shape or form is she trying to attack Giuliani personally. Rudy G actually had the nerve to say he "saved more black lives than any of those people you saw on stage." Whether or not that's true, just by stating that, it's showing a lack of respect for the mothers who lost their sons due to police brutality.
T.I. had some words for Giuliani in a brief conversation with TMZ. He says, "Who gives a fuck what Rudy Giuliani says about music? Like who cares? He's not an aficionado of music. This isn't politics. He needs to worry about Trump's campaign."
T.I.P. makes another good point, saying that Giuliani also imprisoned a lot of black men unnecessarily. "You have to count against the Black lives he saved for the Black lives he destroyed by imprisoning people for too long and taking them away from his families and breaking up homes."
