A Fox News personality recently raised a few eyebrows when she said rappers Snoop Dogg and Bow Wow should be killed for their criticism of President Donald Trump.
The comments were made by Kimberly Guilfoyle, a legal analyst for the channel, reports Inquisitr.
The criticism in question involves a music video by Snoop Dogg, and a response by Bow Wow -- whose real name is Shad Moss -- to Trump's tweet regarding the video.
In the video for Snoop's song "Lavender," Trump is depicted as a clown named "Ronald Klump," and Snoop shoots him with a toy gun that emits a "bang" flag, notes TMZ.
Snoop explained his motivation to Billboard:
The ban that this motherf***er tried to put up; him winning the presidency; police being able to kill motherf***ers and get away with it; people being in jail for weed for 20, 30 years and motherf***ers that’s not Black on the streets making money off of it -- but if you got color or ethnicity connected to your name, you’ve been wrongfully accused or locked up for it, and then you watching people not of color position themselves to get millions and billions off of it.
It’s a lot of clown s*** going on that we could just sit and talk on the phone all day about, but it’s a few issues that we really wanted to lock into [for the video] like police, the president and just life in general…. Nobody’s dealing with the real issue with this f***ing clown as president and the s*** we are dealing with out here. So I wanted to take time out to push pause on a party record and make one of these records for the time being.
As noted by NPR, Trump responded by firing off a tweet on March 15: "Can you imagine what the outcry would be if [Snoop Dogg], failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!"
That led to a March 15 tweet from Bow Wow, in which he made a reference to first lady Melania Trump: "Ayo [Donald Trump] shut your punk a** up talking s*** about my uncle [Snoop Dogg] before we pimp your wife and make her work for us."
As a Fox legal analyst, Guilfoyle opinion was requested on a segment of "The Five," a program hosted by Greg Gutfeld, reports Esquire. "What should the Secret Service do, Kimberly?" he asked. "It was an actual threat."
"Kill them!" Guilfoyle curtly replied. "Kill them. I think it would be fantastic if Snoop and wannabe-Snoop got a visit from, like, the federal marshals, and let's see how tough and gangster they are then."
Before becoming a Fox News star, Guilfoyle was assistant district attorney at the San Francisco and Los Angeles District Attorney’s Offices, according to her official website.
