Dipset leader Cam’ron recently gave his take on controversial Fox News host Bill O’Reilly and compared him to ousted ex-NBA owner Donald Sterling.
Not brief with his words, Killa suggested Bill has made a name for himself by being too one-sided.
“I don’t think he’s really mad at me, I think he’s mad in general,” Cam said in an interview. “And he’s like a Donald Sterling type, just mad at anything that has to do, anything that’s not what he sees as fit. Like you’re on the ‘Bill O’Reilly Show’ and he’s telling you, you know, rappers don’t dress properly because I don’t wear a suit everyday or I don’t wear shoes. When the government goes over there to get that oil from those people in Iran, Iraq, and uh, everywhere else, they don’t care that they got turbans on — y’all gonna go get that oil, you breaking bread with them, they got a billion dollars and you ain’t saying they dress inappropriately. You go over there with suits on, kiss they feet – it’s all about the money. Bill O’Reilly don’t say sh*t about that.” (Montreality)
Back in April, O’Reilly took ample shots at Time’s for making R&B diva Beyoncé its cover feature.
The pundit slammed the notion that Beyonce was empowering young girls, calling it a “load of nonsense.” “Children unsupervised are doing things that are harmful to them,” O’Reilly said. “Beyoncé is part of that problem.” “She knows, this woman knows that young girls getting pregnant in the African-American community now is about 70 percent out of wedlock,” O’Reilly said. “She knows and doesn’t seem to care.” (New York Daily News)
In the past, Bill sent tensions across the Internet after saying rap mogul Diddy’s son should not accept a sports scholarship due to his family’s wealth.
O’Reilly: “I applaud Justin Combs, number one. I mean, the kid is smart, the kid is a good athlete, the kid’s stayed out of trouble — he could be a crazy guy like so many celebrity daughters and sons are. He’s not. So we gotta give him all the credit in the world. However, his father, Diddy — all right, once the scholarship is granted, once it was granted, and it goes in the records that the kid earned it — should’ve said, you know what, we’re not gonna take it. We’re gonna give it to another kid, because there only are a certain amount of scholarships, even though they’re corporate paid, they are limited, so they should’ve stepped back, paid their own way and let another kid have the scholarship.” (Orlando Sentinel)
Atlanta rap star Ludacris previously revealed a face-to-face run-in with O’Reilly years after getting Pepsi to drop him as a sponsor.
“Long story short, there’s nothing he could do. I think he talks about certain people but he never thinks he’s going to meet these people in person, let alone the type of events and the circles that he’s in, that these rappers are sometimes going to be in those same circles,” Luda said in an interview, revealing he saw O’Reilly at a White House event. “He started talking to me about he heard about a lot of the charity work I’ve done with the Ludacris Foundation. This is how he eased into it. He was like, ‘Yeah man, I hear you’ve done good work and I think that maybe I should make a donation to your foundation.’ This is how he got me to calm down. I’m like, ‘You want to make a donation?’ I was like, ‘Well what do I need to do to make that happen immediately, like ASAP?’ … I can’t let everybody know how much the donation was, but at the end of the day, after all of this craziness, Bill O’Reilly ended up writing a check to me to my foundation after approaching him in person.” (“Sway In The Morning”)
