Kentucky AG says Megan Thee Stallion’s “SNL” performance was “disgusting”
“But the fact that someone would get on national television and make disparaging comments about me because I’m simply trying to do my job is disgusting,” he said.
On Tuesday (Oct. 6), Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron defended himself against criticism he’s received from celebrities — specifically, Megan Thee Stallion. During an interview on “Fox and Friends,” Cameron slammed Megan’s performance on “SNL” where she called him out for how he handled the Breonna Taylor investigation.
“Let me just say that I agree that we need to love and protect our Black women,” Cameron said. “There’s no question about that. But the fact that someone would get on national television and make disparaging comments about me because I’m simply trying to do my job is disgusting.”
Cameron said her performance showed “something that I’ve had to experience because I’m a Black Republican, because I stand up for truth and justice as opposed to giving in to a mob mentality, and those are the sorts of things that will be hurled at me in this job.”
“The fact that a celebrity that I never met before wants to make those sorts of statements, they don’t hurt me but what it does is it exposed the type of intolerance, and the hypocrisy because obviously, people preach about being intolerant,” he continued. “You hear a lot of that from the left about being tolerant. But what you saw there is inconsistent with tolerance. In fact, it’s her disposing intolerance because I’ve decided to stand up for truth and justice.”
On Saturday (Oct. 3), the Suga emcee took the stage as a guest performer on “Saturday Night Live’s” season 46 premiere show. During a performance of “Savage,” she called out the attorney general.
During one part of the performance, gunshots rang out as Malcolm X’s infamous speech about Black women played. “The most disrespected, unprotected, neglected person in America is the Black woman,” he said. Meg also included a sound bite of activist Tamika Mallory, who said, “Daniel Cameron is no different than the sell-out negroes that sold our people into slavery.”
The Houston native then took the mic and gave a powerful speech about protecting Black women. “We need to protect our Black women and love our Black women because at the end of the day we need our Black women,” she said. “We need to protect our Black men and stand up for our Black men because at the end of the day, we’re tired of seeing hashtags of our Black men.”
