T.I. responds to Steve Harvey after he called for rappers to respect Trump
Steve Harvey continues to catch flack due to President Donald Trump. A few months following his controversial visit to Trump at the Trump Towers, Harvey decided to give advice to Snoop Dogg, Bow Wow, and T.I.
Harvey shared his comments during his radio show after Snoop Dogg shot a toy gun at Trump’s doppelgänger in a music video. Trump eventually responded on Twitter and called for Snoop to be jailed for his art. Bow Wow and T.I. blasted Trump for going after Snoop.
Harvey warned the rappers by saying, “I love Snoop. Bow Wow, always respectful and cordial with one another, me and T.I. I don’t have no problem with T.I. I love the dude. I’m just saying brothers be smart. You gotta be smart man. All y’all talking got money. You got money, man. You got money and they know how to go after that money. Just be smart, let me tell ya man, leave the first lady out of this. Y’all going down another path with these cats now. You start messing with they wives. I’ll tell y’all you going down another path.”
T.I. responded to Harvey on Instagram by saying, “We respect those who respect US. We respect those who respect themselves. Emergency message to you my brother…#GetOut.” T.I. alluded to the movie Get Out which has a theme of Blacks who are put in the “sunken place” after being hypnotized.
Steve Harvey continues to be ridiculed on social media.

Steve Harvey needs to stop being a coon. Trump ain’t worried about you for real, my friend.

I appreciate Steve Harvey trying to speak for us African Americans saying we should give Donald Trump a chance. But its not going to happen.
