On Saturday, rapper Megan Thee Stallion slammed Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron, calling him a “sellout negro” because of how he handled the case for Breonna Taylor.
Meg’s remarks came during her SNL performance of ‘Savage.’
During the set, Meg stopped the music to play audio from Women’s March co-founder, Tamika Mallory, which said, “Daniel Cameron is no different than the sell-out negroes that sold our people into slavery’’ as the quote displayed on the screen behind her. “We need to protect our black women and love our black women,” she added.
On Tuesday, during an interview with Fox & Friends, Cameron said the attack was “disgusting,” adding that he has always faced verbal attacks like this, and it just shows another example of the bias he has endured while being a Black Republican.
“The fact that a celebrity that I never met before wants to make those sorts of statements … they don’t hurt me, but what it does is it exposed the type of intolerance and the hypocrisy because obviously, people preach about being intolerant,” he said. “You hear a lot of that from the left about being tolerant. But what you saw there is inconsistent with tolerance. In fact, it’s her disposing intolerance because I’ve decided to stand up for truth and justice.”
Just two weeks after the grand jury brought no charges against the Louisville police for Taylor’s killing,
“Let me just say that I agree that we need to love and protect our black women. There’s no question about that,” Cameron said during the interview. “But the fact that someone would get on national television and make disparaging comments about me because I’m simply trying to do my job is disgusting,” he added, as he attributed the words to Meg, instead of Mallory.
“It’s a tragedy what happened to Taylor,” he said, but “at the end of the day, my responsibility is to provide facts and truth and represent and stand up for justice.’’
After seeing Meg’s SNL performance, he said, “I think what you saw there in that display is someone who instead wants to fashion facts to a narrative. That narrative is simply not true.”
