Fox News anchor Laura Ingraham is being called out for a controversial segment about slain rapper Nipsey Hussle.
On Ingraham's show last week -- broadcast one day after Hussle's memorial -- she introduced a segment about his legacy and sarcastically referred to Hussle as "this dear artist."
Ingraham played a portion of the 2016 song "FDT," recorded by rapper YG and featuring Hussle, which includes the chorus, "F---, Donald Trump."
"OK, that's a very creative refrain," Ingraham said. "The chorus that goes on and on, is that related to lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African-Americans?"
In response, some critics, including The Game, Snoop Dogg and T.I., are calling for a boycott.
The Game said Fox News should fire the host or "lose millions of viewers."
"We are NO LONGER laying quiet while you continuously disrespect our brother, culture African Americans as a whole," The Game wrote on Instagram. "I will use my platform & call on my peers to do the same. Nips passing nor his legacy is to be taken lightly as there will be consequences for any disrespect now or in the future as long as I have a voice!!!"
Snoop Dogg, who spoke at Nipsey's public memorial service last week, commented "I'm in," on the Game's post.
T.I. posted the same clip, calling it "disgusting."
"My expectations have already decreased so much for mankind in the past couple weeks that this hardly surprised me," he said.
Ingraham faced an ad boycott in 2018 for mocking a Parkland shooting survivor. She later apologized.
Fox News did not respond to CNN's request for comment on the controversy.
