T.I. Bashes Steve Harvey For Supporting Trump

The battles between Donald Trump and various celebrities continue.

On Monday, TV personality Steve Harvey addressed the recent spats that rappers like Snoop Dogg, Bow Wow, and T.I. have had with Trump, saying “I love Snoop. Bow Wow, always respectful and cordial with one another, me and T.I. I don’t have no problem with T.I. I love the dude. I’m just saying brothers be smart. You gotta be smart man. All y’all talking got money. You got money, man. You got money and they know how to go after that money. Just be smart, let me tell ya man, leave the first lady out of this. Y’all going down another path with these cats now. You start messing with they wives. I’ll tell y’all you going down another path.”

The statement caused an enormous wave of backlash of Harvey’s end, as social media criticized him for not being in a place to make judgement calls on people’s freedom of speech. T.I. was one of these people, and the Atlanta rapper took to Instagram to respond to Harvey. “We respect those who respect US,” he writes, “We respect those who respect themselves. Emergency message to you my brother…#GetOut.”

The hashtag is a reference to the recent horror film Get Out, which has a theme of black people who are put in a “sunken place” after being hypnotized. Clearly, T.I. believes that Harvey is one such example of a celebrity who is “sunken.”

Question to Steve Harvey: Despite the withdrawal on November 4th, 2016 of a CHILD RAPE allegation– by way of the alleged victim!… due to fears for her safety– stated her counsel!… do YOU HONESTLY BELIEVE that America’s new POTUS should be speaking to issues such as CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING? And given that a judge found the allegations were substantive enough, that this same judge directed that the matter proceed to a court by December 28, 2016, for adjudication!… wouldn’t you say that there is some cause for concern? The Huffington Post and the The Guardian appeared concerned!… and, in addition, to several other Media outlets!
Either this woman is charged with mischief for making such an allegation– at least!– and, for spreading “FAKE NEWS”!… as should be the case with members of the “FAUX MEDIA”!… or, the FBI should be compelled to do their job!… and proceed with the necessary investigation into this SUBSTANTIVE ALLEGATION! And, inasmuch, as there can be NO MORATORIUM for such an allegation!… for such a charge! And!… given your present “hosting duties”!… don’t you feel your “charges” are worth protecting?
Please!… no emails!
