Killer Mike tried to slam Joy Reid, but got shut down hard

TV personality Joy Reid lowered the hammer on Killer Mike on Sunday, chastising him like he was an adolescent delinquent by telling the rapper not to come for her unless she calls on him first.

The Twitter beef popped off when Reid posted a photo featuring herself and two women. Reid captioned the photo, “And not to be outdone… @glamluxxe and @savvychicz, who rocked the H&M for our Elgin Baylor shoot! #AMJoy #GlamSquad.”

The rapper, whom Reid destroyed last month for appearing in a National Rifle Association video, was obviously trying to get some “get back” by wrongfully criticizing her for allegedly promoting H&M, a clothing company that came under fire in January for posing a Black child model in a sweatshirt emblazoned with the words, “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle.”

So when Killer Mike came back at Reid, thinking that she was promoting a racist company, Reid verbally body-slammed Mike — again.

“So Me doing an interview about black Gun Ownership with the NRA is ‘bad’ but u promoting a company that tagged a Black Child a Monkey is ‘good, cool, acceptable,’” Killer Mike wrote on Twitter.

The problem with Killer Mike’s tirade is that Reid’s use of “H&M” wasn’t a reference to the clothing company at all.

” ‘H&M’ stands for ‘hair and makeup,’ ” Reid responded with righteous indignation on Instagram. “The two women beside me in this pic did my hair (H) and makeup (M) for a shoot. … And here I was thinking you were an intellectual, and not just the guy who hangs out in the sunken place talking guns with the NRA’s ‘official black guy.’”

Reid was just starting to peel Killer Mike like an onion.

“Also … who starts a feud in Instagram comments? Is your Twitter account locked?” Reid added as a parting shot.

Killer Mike had no choice but to own up to his mistake on Twitter, saying that he had “egg on my face” after the beat-down. He also told his followers that he would agree to appear on Reid’s show at a later date to discuss Black gun ownership.

Black Twitter was hardly ready to let Killer Mike die a slow death even after Reid successfully nailed the coffin shut. Take a look at some of the funniest of Mike’s mauling on Twitter:
