Sean Hannity, an American political commentator and television personality, has said that rap music should be banned after the Confederate Flag was banned in the wake of the shootings in Charleston recently.
The presenter is known for his controversial and outspoken comments, having recently called singer Ryan Adams a “gutless coward” after he refused to make an appearance on Hannity’s talk show.
Hip-hop and R&B superstars Snoop Dogg, Beyoncé, 50 Cent and Jay Z were the subject of his latest rant however.
Hannity condemned stores such as Amazon, Sears and Wal-Mart for pulling the Confederate Flag from sale when they continue to sell music to consumers that he says can be as equally as offensive. His argument was that if you ban one, you have to ban the other.
He went on to describe the lyrics and themes of the music to contain misogynistic, racist and sexist content, on top of the use of “the n-word, the b-word and the h-word” so frequently. Hannity said, “We’re in the process of banning everything – just a thought,” claiming he wants to see all music associated with the genre removed from the shelves.
