Katie Hopkins took some good time out of her day to record and upload a whole video dedicated to Idris Elba and why he cannot play James Bond. Sources aren’t quite sure why she felt her opinion mattered, but Ice-T let her know for us all and he spared no feelings.
There has been speculation for quite some time that #IdrisElba is the next to portray the iconic character, #JamesBond. Even the director of the film, Barbara Broccolli, was recently reported stating its time to bring diversity to this iconic franchise. Now that the rumors are back in full swing, #KatieHopkins decided to make a one minute and 22-second video explaining why Idris cannot and “will not” be James Bond.
“No, Idris Elba. You cannot be James Bond. You will not be 007 no matter how many tweets you put out,” she boldly stated in a recent video upload. “It’s not because you’re a gentleman of color, it’s because Bond isn’t…must we perpetually crowbar gender and color where it doesn’t fit?”
Unfortunately for her, hip-hop legend Ice-T, caught her tweet and immediately went for the jugular. He retweeted her post with the caption, “This b*tch sounds stupid”. Hopkins replies, “Thank you for listening, Tracy Lauren Marrow. Ice T my ass.” Sis, used the man’s whole government name!
What followed was more of Ice-T being Ice-T and Twitter was loving the entertainment. Check out the tweets to get a laugh!
