"Is that related to the lowest unemployment ever basically for African Americans?"

Hussle, whose real name is Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was shot and killed outside of his store in South Los Angeles in March. People are literally grieving over a husband, father, brother, uncle, friend and someone who meant so much too so many people.

During Friday's episode of "The Ingraham Angle", after saying that "thousands lined the streets to say goodbye to rapper Nipsey Hussle", she and her co-host giggled and mocked "FDT", Hussle's song that condemned Donald Trump in no uncertain terms.

On April 12, Ingraham covered Hussle's public memorial service which was held the day before. "@foxnews fires this disrespectful c- by tomorrow, Monday morning or you will lose millions of viewers one person at a time until it drastically effects your ratings, views etc.", the Game wrote on Instagram. "I will use my platform & call on my peers to do the same".

"I'm in, " Snoop Dogg replied.

Snoop Dogg, who gave a moving speech at Hussle's funeral added, "I'm in".

Rapper T.I. also hit out at Laura Ingraham's comments and branded the segment as "disgusting".

Instead, Ingraham focused on mocking a song in which Hussle disparaged Donald Trump.

He wrote: "Neither of you WILL EVER know or experience the level of love, appreciation and respect that Nip has". "EVEN IN DEATH! So let that sizzle in ya lil hateful, demonic spirits", Tip wrote before logging off.

Ingraham pointed out that Hussle recorded an expletive-ridden protest song against President Donald Trump, and went on to ridicule at the lyrics of the song.

Tank also posted a petition calling for Ingraham's firing which has garnered 14,000 signatures so far.

Some prominent music figures were not cool with Ingraham's commentary on Hussle's memorial and took to social media to express their frustration and desire to get Ingraham axed from Fox or TV, period. As a result, he issued a call to action to his followers and supporters that resulted in at least 10 of Ingraham's sponsors pulling their advertisements from the show. In March of a year ago, Ingraham said Parkland survivor David Hogg was whining about his lack of college acceptances.
