*CNN host Jake Tapper was put on blast by rapper Ice Cube after he called Louis Farrakhan “a vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist.”
After the streaming channel Fox Soul announced the upcoming airing of Farrakhan’s Message to America, Tapper tweeted: “Farrakhan is a vile anti-LGBTQ anti-Semitic misogynist. Why is a Fox channel airing his propaganda?”
This moved the rapper to tell Tapper to “watch [his] mouth.”
Cube was criticized this month for sharing a number of Twitter posts that folks deemed anti-Semitic.
“It is hard to give Ice Cube the benefit of the doubt given the fact that his anti-Semitic activities have extended beyond the realm of the internet,’ wrote Marlow Stern of the The Daily Beast, per Complex.
“He’s an ardent supporter of Louis Farrakhan, one of the world’s most prominent anti-Semites, and, most troubling of all, the rapper and actor was accused in May 2015 of ordering his entourage to beat up a rabbi.”
