Bill O’Reilly Calls Lupe Fiasco “Pinhead,” Rapper Responds
Fox News pundit Bill O’Reilly has once again targeted the hip-hop community, this time calling controversial MC Lupe Fiasco, a “pinhead,” according to statements made on his show, The O’Reilly Factor on Tuesday, June 14.
O’Reilly responded to comments made by Lupe Fiasco last week during an interview with CBS, where the Chicago rapper called President Barack Obama “the biggest terrorist.”
Speaking of Fiasco, O’Reilly said “Mr. Fiasco has been invited on The Factor but has declined, possibly because he could not possibly defend that remark, which makes him a pinhead.”
In turn, Lupe Fiasco took to Twitter this afternoon, saying “Whoa! I got invited to the O’reilly factor and turned it down??? Thats news to me…would NEVER turn down the opp to push billys buttons!”
As of press time reps for Fox News and The O’Reilly Factor have yet to respond to XXL for comment.
“I’ve got nothing to clarify,” Lupe told Billboard last week, when asked to explain his comments. “It’s Obama and the U.S. government. [It's] every president that came before him and every president that comes after him.”—Martin Spasov
