Cam’ron has no sympathy for dead pro-Trump rioter Ashli Babbit

Cam’ron’s sympathy is for Breonna Taylor alone. Not the U.S. Capitol rioters.

It’s been almost a week since the storming of the United States Capitol by supporters of Donald Trump and people from all backgrounds — from all over the world — are continuing to react to the moment that will officially go down as one of the most shocking in American history. One of them being Dipset’s own Cam’ron.

As REVOLT previously reported, a total of six people have passed away as a result of the attack on the government building. Four of them were pro-Trump rioters and two of them were Capitol Police. As a refresher, Roseanne Boyland was trampled to death by her fellow rioters after she was photographed holding a flag that read, “Don’t tread on me;” Kevin Greeson had a fatal heart attack while with the mob, Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick’s death is now being investigated as a homicide, and another cop Howard Liebengood committed suicide days after the ordeal. We’ve still yet to learn more details about Benjamin Phillips death. And then, we have Ashli Babbit...

Babbit was the first person confirmed to die from the Capitol attack. She was actually shot by a policeman at the scene as she tried to enter the House chamber, and would later succumb to her injuries.

When she passed away, Trump supporters quickly took to social media with the hashtag #SayHerName to call for people to honor her and show her respect. However, they were quickly shut down by users who affirmed that this hashtag was only for Black women who’ve died at the hands of social injustice and police brutality.

“#SayHerName is for Sandra Bland,” one person tweeted. “It’s for Tanisha Anderson. #SayHerName is for Atatiana Jefferson. It’s for Breonna Taylor.”

Cam’ron definitely agrees with this because today (Jan. 12), the rapper posted a message on his Instagram that read, “Don’t ask me to have any sympathy for a wom[a]n who was shot invading the Capitol when you have no sympathy for a woman who was shot sleeping in her bed!” Peep that below.
