Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron has no problem with the smoke coming his way from Megan Thee Stallion. The controversial government official has come forward to address getting dragged by the Houston native over his handling of the Breonna Taylor case during a “Saturday Night Live” performance.
Daniel Cameron Responds Meg
During a Fox News appearance, Cameron directly spoke on getting ripped by Stallion. Daniel played the race card in his own favor and said his views as a Black Republican are what ultimately sparked Meg’s issues with him.
“What you saw on the screen there – is something I’ve had to experience because I’m a Black Republican, because I stand up for truth and justice as a opposed to giving into a mob mentality and those are the sorts of things that will be hurled at me in this job. Those are the sorts of things that I’ve heard when I was in college. Again, because I identity with a different political philosophy – the fact that a celebrity I’ve never met before would make those sorts of statements, they don’t hurt me. But what it does is it exposes the type of intolerance and hypocrisy because obviously people preach about being tolerant and you see a lot of that from the left about being tolerant but what you saw there was inconsistent with tolerance.” (Fox News)
New York rapper Mysonne has since addressed Cameron’s remarks and explained why Black people – specifically – have zip-zero respect for Daniel.
Megan Thee Stallion Disses Daniel Cameron
During her “Savage” performance, Meg made it no secret she had beef with Cameron. Stallion used the televised “Saturday Night Live” broadcast to get political during her set.
“We need to protect our black Women and love our Black women. Because at the end of the day we need our Black women. We need to protect our Black Men and stand up for our Black men because at the end of the day, we’re tired of seeing hashtags of our Black men,” she said. This followed quotes from Malcolm X and activist Tamika Mallory, who said, “Daniel Cameron is no different than the sell-out negroes that sold our people into slavery” (Deadline)
Breonna Taylor’s Grand Jury Audio Emerges
According to reports, there’s conflicting testimony over the seconds before police fatally shot Taylor in her own apartment in March. Taylor’s boyfriend Kenneth Walker – in newly released closed session grand jury recordings – is heard saying they had no idea who was at the door and said the cops didn’t announce themselves before breaking into the apartment.
The officers involved in the raid, though, insisted in interviews with investigators that they had loudly identified themselves as the police before they burst through the door. It was only after one officer was shot by Mr. Walker, they said, that they opened fire at the couple, killing Ms. Taylor. The dueling accounts of a chaotic and tragic night are captured in 15 hours of recordings from the grand jury’s examination of the fatal raid, which was part of a drug investigation targeting a man who was arrested elsewhere. For the first time, some of those directly involved in the police shooting — including neighbors, officers and Mr. Walker — are heard describing the fateful night. (MSN)
The Grand Jury Tapes
Recently, Attorney General Daniel Cameron addressed being pressured to release the recordings publicly.
Cameron added that he was concerned that the release planned for Wednesday could hamper the ongoing federal investigation and lead to a “poisoning of the jury pool.” “The grand jury is meant to be a secretive body,” Cameron said in a statement released Monday night. “It’s apparent that the public interest in this case isn’t going to allow that to happen.” The move follows the filing of a motion in Louisville, Kentucky, by a grand jury member to have the sealed transcripts and records released “so that the truth may prevail.” (NBC News)
