The Game Calls for Boycott of Fox News Over 'Jesus Piece' Criticism
The Game can’t seem to escape controversy. Just days after his fifth album Jesus Piece hit stores, the Compton MC is embroiled in another battle, this time with a Fox News reporter.
Political correspondent Michelle Malkin, who describes herself as a “conservative, mom, wife, and blogger,” lashed out at the rapper for his portrayal of Jesus on the cover of his album, calling it blasphemous.
Game is not taking the criticism lightly. “#BOYCOTT @michellemalkin NOW ! She’s racist, & makin racial & blasphemist comments about my album. Same b!$&% said Obama isnt AMERICAN,” he tweeted. “We cannot allow racism to carry itself into the NEW YEAR !!!!! We cant !!!!!”
He also called for a boycott of Fox News. “I was a big supporter of Fox News,” he told DJ Skee. “I grew up on ‘The Simpsons,’ they come on Fox 11, and now I’ma do everything that I can to try to shut them down because we can’t allow that.”
Following Game’s tweets, Malkin received angry responses and even death threats from his fans. “Aw, what’s wrong — is your trashy album not selling?” she told Game. “Not afraid of you or your race-baiting misogynist gangstas.”
