Nipsey Hussle’s tragic death broke hearts across the hip-hop community and beyond. His untimely passing inspired a truce between Los Angeles gangs. He had a grand home going service at the Staples Center where fans packed the venue to pay respects the the late rapper and his family. Whether you are a fan of not, this terrible loss was felt. While many outlets covered his funeral with respect, FOX News laughed and joked while covering Hussle’s farewell.

“Yesterday in  thousands lined the streets to say goodbye to rapper Nipsey Hussle,” FOX News reporter Laura Ingraham said during The Laura Ingraham Show Friday (Apr. 12). “This dear artist recently released a song called FDT ― F Donald Trump.”

“FDT” is actually rapper YG’s  2016 track that features Hussle and after she played a clip of the chorus she then mocked the rapper saying “That’s a very creative refrain, very catchy. “The chorus, it goes on and on. Is that related to the lowest unemployment ever basically for African Americans.”

Ingraham and her guest Raymond Arroyo also made fun of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan for mistakenly calling Hussle Nipsey Russell during his service.

“It’s always a good idea before you give a eulogy to know the name of the deceased,” Arroyo said sarcastically.

As a journalist it is very disrespectful, tactless and insensitive to discuss Hussle’s murder and funeral like it had no meaning or impact. Plus, the comment about the black people having the  lowest unemployment rate ever is false. Our unemployment rates were lowest while Barack Obama was in office.

Take a look at a brief clip of Ingraham below.

Due to rapper Nipsey Hussle’s influence on hip-hop, it’s only right that his home going service be magnificent. It has been announced that the L.A rapper’s funeral will be held next week at the Staples Center, TMZ reports.

The venue, which holds 21,000 people, will host Hussle’s funeral on Thursday, April 11th, 2019. LAPD officers will be present to secure the event. In order to attend the funeral, you will have to purchase tickets. This isn’t the first time the Staples Center hosted a funeral for a major celebrity. Michael Jackson’s funeral was also held there back in 2009.

Nipsey Hussle, born Ermias Asghedom, was shot and killed on March 31st in front of his Marathon Clothing store in his hometown. The alleged shooter is Eric Holder, who recently plead not guilty to murder charges. Hussle was only 33-years-old and left behind his two children, his son Kross and his daughter Emani.

His tragic killing sparked a gang truce that led to a peace march through the Crenshaw district in Los Angeles. Gang members from Watts, Compton and Inglewood all came together to discuss ceasing fire and creating more unity to prevent more killings in the South Central L.A community.

Of Course Stephen Colbert Has Plenty of Jokes About Trump at Bush’s Funeral

President Donald Trump attended the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush on Wednesday, and of course, Stephen Colbert, found the humor. “They even assured him that the choir would drown out the sound of other ex-presidents rolling in their graves,” Colbert joked in his monologue on Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Show.

The late-night host pointed out that not insulting Trump was nearly impossible by virtue of comparison, like when Bush’s biographer Jon Meacham said in his eulogy that Bush “life code was: tell the truth; don’t blame people.” Colbert wondered if that was already bending the rules. “As soon as you start praising someone’s honesty, you’re automatically throwing shade at Donald Trump. I mean, Obama made Trump seem like a bad president just by sitting next to him.”

Speaking of former President Barack Obama, Colbert said, “It was quite a moving sight to see the presidents and the first ladies in the front row, waiting to honor President Bush, chatting comfortably with one another,” Colbert said. “Until Trump showed up, and then it became silent-staring time. Donald Trump is the only person in the world who can bring down a funeral.”

Family of Baby Girl, Who Was Stabbed and Put in Heated Oven, Hold Funeral for the 20-Month-Old

Royalty Floyd, the 20-month-old Mississippi toddler who was allegedly stabbed and then placed in a heated oven by her own grandmother, was laid to rest on Saturday in Clarksdale.

The family of the slain baby girl came together to say their final goodbyes dressed in pink, per request of Royalty’s mother Veronica Jones, who said it was her daughter’s “favorite color” on Facebook.

“You are gone from this earth but you will forever be here in my heart. You were really truly one of the most beautiful creations that God had ever made and I would like to thank God for bringing you into my life,” Veronica wrote ahead of Royalty’s service.

At the funeral, Royalty’s grandfather delivered a tearful eulogy about his late granddaughter.

“She was ‘Big Girl.’ But from the day she was born, she was granddaddy’s baby girl. And she knew it,” Royalty’s grandfather James Harris said, WREG-TV reported.

“I miss her,” Harris continued. “But she’ll always be with me. Always.”

Royalty’s father John Floyd, who is still in shock over his daughter’s gruesome death, also managed to say a few words at the funeral.

“I still find it unbelievable to tell you the truth,” John said, WREG-TV reported.

“And to try and make heads or tails of what happened, it’s still something I can’t comprehend right now. It ain’t soaking in for some reason. I’m thinking one day this is all something that isn’t real,” John added.

On Oct. 15, authorities were called to a residence in the small city of Shaw after a family member discovered Royalty’s lifeless body burnt and stabbed inside a heated oven.

Royalty was alive when her grandmother, 48-year-old Carolyn Jones allegedly placed her inside the oven.

A deputy coroner at the Bolivar County Coroner’s office in Mississippi told The Bolivar Commercial that the young child died “from sharp stab wounds and inhaling the heated air in the oven.”

On the night of the little girl’s death, Carolyn was immediately taken into custody and has been charged with first-degree murder, the Bolivar County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to PEOPLE.

Carolyn is currently being represented by a public defender.  PEOPLE could not immediately reach the public defender.

When contacted by the Associated Press, a public defender declined to comment, saying he’s still learning about the case.

The Bolivar County Sheriff’s Department also told PEOPLE, the child “was living at the residence with Jones at the time of the murder.”

“I’ve been in law enforcement a long time, 26 years almost. Some of the most horrific scenes I’ve seen in law enforcement involve children. Those are some of the— they have an effect on us. We don’t want it to happen, but unfortunately, things like this happen,” Bolivar County Sheriff Kevin Williams said in a press conference on Oct. 16, WREG reported.

When asked for a motive, Williams said, “We are trying to figure that out ourselves. We have no idea at this point.”

Royalty’s mother also created a GoFundMe and raised over $ 6,000 to cover Royalty’s funeral costs.
