Rapper Game has never really been afraid of speaking his mind or engaging in any beefs. The West Coast rapper may be somewhat over his long-standing beef with 50 Cent over the demise of G-Unit, however, he doesn’t seem to have a problem dragging people outside of Hip Hop. Game dropped his fifth studio album “Jesus Piece” this week, and the album has caused a lot of controversy due to the many references to religion; and that’s something many people oppose considering that there are people who honestly feel gangster rap and Jesus just don’t mix. Fox News reporter Michelle Malkin who is undoubtedly a Conservative made it clear that she is amongst the people who find the rapper’s album cover to be nothing short of Blasphemy. Game’s album sports what looks like a black Jesus in Gangster attire (although he recently suggested it’s actually Rick James in Jesus attire), and this just doesn’t sit well with some people.
Apparently Michelle Malkin criticized the album cover in one of her blog posts. She claims that she finds the cover art work to be blasphemous and she also claims that Game’s continuous use of the word b*tch is sexist and disrespectful to women.
When Game caught wind of Michelle’s comments, he went after the reporter immediately and therefore launching a Twitter war between fans of Game and the Fox News correspondent.
Game called Malkin out for making what he felt was racist comments, while Malkin stood her ground and took on the rapper and his fans who mostly tweeted profanity laced insults and even threatened to harm her.
Here’s the back and forth between Game and Malkin:
Game: #BOYCOTT @michellemalkin NOW ! She’s racist, & makin racial & blasphemist comments about my album. Same b!$&% said Obama isnt AMERICAN RT
