Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 14, 2017

Rapper XXXTentacion is under fire after releasing a disturbing music video featuring a Caucasian boy being lynched on a stage as an African-American boy looks on.

The video "Look At Me!" debuted on Tuesday and features imagery depicting police brutality, violent protests, and the 19-year-old Florida-based rapper placing a white child's head in a noose on stage in front of a crowded theater and then hoisting him up into the air.

The child's feet are shown dangling and twitching and then they suddenly stop.

The casting director of the video LaShawnna Stanley told that finding parents who would allow their child to be hanged on stage was a challenge.

I've read, and it seems plausible, that the entire song is about rappers being hypocrites and inciting black youth to violence.

XxxTentacion has a similar record to Mayweather when it comes to boxing female opponents in a domestic arena.

#2 TMZ, Daily Mail, The Sun, etc all carried this story. Google should be your BFF before making stupid comments.

First thing I thought of when reading this was the Nirvana music video where the little kid was dressed up in a Klan outfit. Many people jumped to conclusions and made assumptions about the artist's intent.

I only know of xxxtentacion from shutting down part of downtown Tampa when he cancelled a recent concert, then looked him up to see he was another woman beating rapper.

Great art requires great sacrifice!

Bullcrap story.

Free promo for a third rate rap act.

Good find, Gracie.

Reminds me of the Florida DA who propelled 3rd rate rap act 'Luke Skywalker and 2Live Crew' to national fame and success by trying prosecute them for their lewd (and crappy) act.

If XXXTentacion was a well-known rapper his name would have been in the Fox News headline.

Is there not a REAL similar case that is currently in the news.

I think an ACTUAL lynching.

For some reason, it has not gotten this level of scrutiny.

It's a day later and has been covered in the media. So I'm asking again, has Facebook blocked it and has YouTube demonetized it???
