Killer Mike's NRA Video Misused Against Marchers, He Says in Apology

Watch Killer Mike Voice His Support for Gun Ownership in New NRA Video Run The Jewels' Killer Mike Criticised For Defending Gun Ownership In NRA Video

Concluded Killer Mike, "I do support the march and I support black people owning guns".

Rapper Killer Mike has apologized after an interview he did with NRATV was published online, saying the video was misused against the March for Our Lives.

Mike quote retweeted the statement writing, "I am so humbled to be your friend, brother & group member".

He also talked about Dana Loesch, the spokesperson of the NRA, who recently said that the tears of white mothers are like ratings for television.

The figures follow on from the March for Our Lives protest in the U.S., in which hundreds of thousands of people gathered in Washington DC to call for tighter gun laws. "To the young people that worked tirelessly to organize, I'm sorry adults chose to do this".


For example, he says, "We are raising a generation of kids where everyone gets a trophy". "You're a lackey of the progressive movement, because you've never disagreed with the people who tell you what to do". "When the Black Panthers were defending themselves against police brutality...the very thing that 2A (Second Amendment) was meant for, the NRA supported gun control in the form of the Mulford Act".

Since Killer Mike's comments, the likes of his bandmate El-P and rapper Vic Mensa have shared their views.

- Jamil Smith (@JamilSmith) March 25, 2018Dear @KillerMike, it's possible to support the right to bear arms without appearing as or becoming a proxy for the NRA.

"I wish a hero like Blaine Gaskill had been at Marjory Douglas High School last month because your classmates would still be alive and no one would know your names", said Mr. "That interview was used a week later to disparage a very noble campaign that I actually support ..."

- Killer Mike (@KillerMike) March 26, 2018 On Sunday, the rapper posted two videos saying the interview was done a week prior to the March for Our Lives and that he did an interview with the NRA to discuss topics with people he doesn't always agree with. "No matter what you believe we all have to listen in a real way". Mike has self-identified, politically, simply as "a capitalist", but he liked Sanders, he said, because of his promise to restore the Voting Rights Act, prioritize education, and "end this illegal war on drugs that disproportionately targets minorities and the poor". Its owed to them and many others. We are a gun-owning family.
