O’Reilly Vs Stewart Over Common
Damn boo you got everyone fighting over you right now, I’m getting jeolous. LMAO!!! Bill O’Reilly wants to face off with John Stewart because of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Common[/lastfm]‘s appearance at the White House!
According to AHH.com
Fox, O’Reilly and various media outlets have been at odds over Common’s appearance, due to the subject matters of his poems and one song in particular, “A Song for Assata” from his fourth studio album, 2000’s Like Water for Chocolate.
Apparently, O’Reilly is fed up with Jon Stewarts attacks, because he’s ready to talk to “The Daily Show” host face-to-face.
“I would like to debate you about the Common situation,” Bill O’Reilly said on his show The O’Reilly Factor on May 12th.
“It’s important. This is far beyond dopey lyrics and dopey presentations,” O’Reilly said in response to Stewart’s rap. “What we do care about is the President of the United States understanding that there are elements in this country who are subversive. Imagine the mothers of the slain police officer’s thinking, when they see a guy like Common in the White House.”
The coverage of Common’s journey to the White House has generated the most press the well respected, veteran rapper/actor has seen in his 19-year-career.
Despite the controversy, Common remained humble. “Whew! What a week! Peace y’all, be safe and enjoy yourself!” Common tweeted. (Thank You babe)
Take a listen to the song that has everyone beefing over Common “A Song for Assata”
