Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron told Fox News that he found Megan Thee Stallion’s SNL performance to be offensive due to her backdrop of activist Tamika Mallory’s words, “Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout Negros that sold our people into slavery.”
The Tamika Mallory quote was placed on the backdrop near the end of Megan’s performance and audio of Tamika Mallory’s voice synced with the quote as if she was reading it herself.
Shouts out to the audio/video crew!
Daniel Cameron told Fox News:
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. But it’s not the first time we’ve seen this and it certainly won’t be the last time we see this. At the end of the day, my responsibility is to provide facts and truth and represent and stand up for justice.
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 in this particular case with Ms. Taylor. Again, it is a tragedy what happened to her, but what you saw on the screen there and what your viewers saw is something that I’ve had to experience because I’m a Black Republican, because I stand up for truth and justice as opposed to giving in to a mob mentality.
Those are types of things that will be hurled at me in this job. The fact that a celebrity that I’ve never met before wants to make those sorts of statements, they don’t hurt me but what it does is, it exposes the type of intolerance that people and the hypocrisy. Because obviously people preach about being tolerant, you see a lot of that from the left about being tolerant, but what you saw there is inconsistent with tolerant.
The irony in Daniel’s response is how it correlates to most African Americans’ response to the lack of charges brought against the officers in the Breonna Taylor case.
It is disgusting that you can charge an officer for shooting into a wall, but you can’t charge him for shooting an African American woman 5 times.
It is intolerable to keep witnessing the loss of African American lives due to police brutality and systemic racism. At the hands of officers that react off of preconceived notions instead of facts.
In my opinion, Tamika Mallory hit the nail on the head with her analysis of Daniel Cameron and Megan Thee Stallion used the perfect platform to share Tamika’s words.
