In case you live under a rock, Rep. Doug Lamborn, (R-Colo.), has come under fire for using the term “tar baby” to describe President Obama during a radio interview. 50 Cent is part of that fire.
And now…50 Cent weighs in on the situation via Twitter:
“Republican congressman Doug Lamborn should be relieved of his duties after calling president Obama a tar baby,” 50 tweeted to his nearly 5 million followers. “Tar baby is a synonym for n*gger, except it is only used in bigoted manners, whereas n*gga can be a sign of respect.
The term comes from a children’s story in witch they explain that slaves were ‘dark and dumb’due to the fact they were ‘baptized in TAR’ #SK.”
Sherri Shepard of The View had something to say too.
