The firestorm surrounding Soulja Boy’s song “Let’s Be Real” continues. The 21-year old rapper angered many military veterans with the line “f**k the army troops” and now an online petition has been started to ban the artist’s music and memorabilia from military bases.
Reports This is 50:
“I am writing in reference to the rap artist Soulja Boy and his recent single “Let’s Be Real.” He has caused a great uproar in the military community with his lyrics from this song, which are listed above. Many Americans, civilians and military personnel, have requested that you please discontinue any and all of Soulja Boy’s memorabilia,” the petition reads. “In doing so, you would not only earn the respect of the American audience but you would also create a peace among all Americans today. Military personnel have become greatly offended with the previously mentioned song and removing said artist would ease a lot of the tension and violence that has been created. Please take careful consideration in the request of the American people as it can effect the future of the American people and generations to come. I send my greatest appreciation for your time in reading this letter and hope that our request could be fulfilled. Thank You and God Bless”
Former infantry sergeant Leo Dunson, told TMZ that Soulja’s song is “the most ignorant thing I’ve heard in so long.” Dunson released a diss track aimed at Soulja under the name Sgt. Dunson called “Change Your Name.”
