Kentucky’s attorney general — who was ripped by Megan Thee Stallion as a “sellout negro’’ over his handling of the Breonna Taylor case — called the rapper’s attack “disgusting’’ Tuesday.
AG Daniel Cameron — who has taken intense heat for not trying to bring murder charges against the cops involved in the killing of the innocent EMT in Louisville in March — said Megan’s verbal assault on “Saturday Night Live’’ over the weekend was just another example of the bias he has withstood since college as a black Republican.
“But 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,’’ Cameron told TV’s “Fox & Friends.”
Megan targeted Cameron during her “SNL’’ debut, playing audio of Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory saying, “Daniel Cameron is no different than the sell-out negroes that sold our people into slavery’’ while also posting the quote on the screen behind her.
Megan then added, “We need to protect our black women and love our black women.”
Cameron told Fox, “Let me just say that I agree that we need to love and protect our black women. There’s no question about that.
“It’s a tragedy what happened to [Taylor],” added the AG — two weeks after the officers involved in Taylor’s shooting dodged charges for her death.
But “at the end of the day, my responsibility is to provide facts and truth and represent and stand up for justice,’’ Cameron said.
Referring to Megan’s performance, he said, “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.’’
He said he has experienced such “intolerance’’ for years “because I’m a black Republican, because I stand up for truth and justice as opposed to giving in to a mob mentality.’’
