KOCO-TV, Prince Williams

Rapper Tip "T.I." Harris sparked fury on social media after he appeared to defend a white Oklahoma anchorwoman who compared her Black co-host to a gorilla in the city zoo.

Oklahoma City's KOCO-TV morning anchor Alex Housden tearfully apologized to her co-anchor Jason Hackett after comparing him to a gorilla during a live news broadcast on Thursday, Aug. 22.

The incident occurred near the end of a segment about a gorilla at the Oklahoma City Zoo. Housden, who is white, turned to Hackett and said the animal, "Kind of looks like you."

Amazingly, Hackett agreed with his co-anchor, saying, "He kind of does, actually, yeah."

The next day, Housden tearfully apologized to Hackett and to viewers after a video clip of the segment went viral and sparked outrage on Facebook.

In a since deleted post on Instagram.com, rapper T.I. appeared to defend Housden by claiming Hackett does look like a gorilla.

In the post, which was screenshot by blogger ATLien of Straightfromthea.com, T.I. said he accepted her apology and he believed she was sincere "both times" because Hackett "kinda favored that [gorilla]."

ATLien noted that Tip's commentary is "especially shocking considering his stance on Gucci’s red lipped monkey shirt." T.I. called for a 3-month boycott of Gucci that never got off the ground.

This isn't the first time T.I. has shown a bias toward light skin being superior to dark skin. He often joked about preferring light skinned women to dark skinned women in the past. They say there's a kernel of truth in every joke.

    T.I. is a selective activist, perhaps he should focus more on his on/off again marriage than racial/social issues, that he only boycotts briefly and moves on. Let us not forget Ferguson, MO.

    TI is always trying to be some kind of social commentator. He needs to just stick to music and leave that other stuff alone.

    If that man was a woman and light skin he’d marry her cause TI biracial build a body wife looka like a pig ?
    Unfortunately a lot of black men have shown their inferiority by excusing the blatant racist/colorist behavior of white and other women they openly lust after while putting black women down. They embolden these mayo mindys to try that shit with us. TI been a clown so...

  • Dr. P

    Exactly. I'm to the point with protesting the opposite of everything he stands for.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Man, I can remember when TI was a friend of the blog. I mean way back when I was just lurking and people would get banned left and right for saying anything remotely negative about him or Tiny.

    IMO, TI is not nearly as deep as he and others seem to think he is. I don't expect much from him.

  • KarmaBackAround

    But claim they against oppression n be the main oppressor smh

  • KarmaBackAround

    He speaks for the light skin black community..

    He don’t even need to stick to music, he just needs to have a seat somewhere. Actually, go to bed preferably.

    Slightly off topic, may God forgive me if I'm wrong, but is one of his sons going through the "change". (Trans) I know kids are off limits but the other day I saw an interview off his son and it appeared to me as though king is turning into a queen, did I miss the memo? He looked as though he had rose pink lipstick and his general demeanor

  • Monique Love

    When it comes to speaking on other peoples looks T.I should keep his mouth shut with a wife who favors a piglet no style of dress hair color makeup or business ventures shes created can change her appearance of Ms Piggy.

    Sushi shame on u. U know good n well the term buck breaking originated from. It was the practice of white slave owners to rape black men to keep them in line. Shame on u for using a term for raping another human being in a situation like this.

    He was going hard way before Kodak said anything about his son...he said he was defending Nipsy honor..because Kodak likes Lauren London. TI didn't think Kodak would come back at him.

  • Ni Ni

    Yawl done started in on poor Tiny and she aint even said nothing.

  • Sushi

    I'm sure you are smarter than the average bear to also understand that the term also refers to psychologically breaking of an individual. We as a race have been and still is being psychologically raped by our counterparts, which shows when we use terms such as Good Hair, Nappy Hair, Light Skin Dark Skin or the use of the N words....And they are still keeping us in line, well some of us, just turn on the T.V or Radio it's all around you......You can't miss it....

White folks call each other trailer trash n rednecks who is keeping them in line. Jeff foxworthy made milions off his u know u a redneck jokes n there is a show called redneck games but if u called a white person a redneck to their face guess whether or not they will like it.

    Now when will black Twitter cancel TI's azz. No matter what that man looked like, it was unprofessional, rude, insensitive and racist to say he looked like a gorilla especially coming from a non black.

  • Meme

    ?No no wasn't that, he is pale with naturally pink lips yes, but this time they look like they had an extra pink topcoat of lipstain (I don't know) maybe I'm over reading signs!

    T. I. cancelled himself. Don't no one give AF about that midget. https://media1.giphy.com/media/DtAgliGUBV8k0/giphy.gif

  • CookieMobster

    Instead of gorilla I'm surprised he didn't say the actual scientific name for a gorilla since he tries to sound smart with all Dem big words...
    Ti: " In actuality the homosapien did appear to resemble the likeness of a Gorilla-beringei graueri"

  • Renee26

    Lemme go look for the clip... It's not far fetched

  • Elevated Soul

    What did he say about skin tone though?

    Why would anyone equate a gorilla to Blacks with a darker skin tone?

    Newsflash: The colorism within the Black race is not skin tone specific. There are Blacks within the race who can't stand lighter skin Blacks,so it goes both ways.....

    TI is a fraud and like many frauds on the left,he often call Blacks who are not Democrats,"all kinds of coons" but in reality he is the coon and real sellout.I don' know why Black people with a certain mentality insist of making fools like him YOUR LEADER....

  • Sushi

    You have been riding my D*** for the last couple of days......So here we go, 1st you are deflecting from the statement I made, and I don't have time to waste pulling your head out your ass... 2nd Stay DUMB if you must that is your choice.... MAKE IT MAKE SENSE

So now, T.I. is Disrespecting the man's rights to be respected. Stop hating T.I. because You Think this man is less. You Don't Know him. Are You Jealous? You seem to be the Lesser one here.

    Yes. Its some ignorant people and parents that teach their kids to favor people because of the color of their skin. Its sad. Or dont have babies with darker skin people because they dont want their offspring to be dark, not just in black culture but india culture as well. When is the hate against darker skin going to stop. Unfortunately its our own people that say and do the most ignorant things in regards to complexion differences. Glad my parents weren't ignorant like that.

    See?
    I told y’all at the OG thread about this topic that most black males want pink titties but the mammies came for me yapping about they hate pink penis. You rarely hear a black male say they hate pink titties. On the contrary they jump to defend pink titties as often as possible.

  • gellie

    Black men NEVER get cancelled. They will most certainly never cancel each other. This is why Black women need not concern ourselves with them or their plights. You see how quick even the so-called woke ones are to defend Becky??

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    TI reminds me of these Politically PR celebrities. They simply jump onto whatever topic that generates a reaction or outrage, then they are in the news as well as bloggers and news outlets will tag, "Rapper TI said," etc. I've seen it alot. Meanwhile, ppl at home start with the whole, "he is woke, she is woke," nonsense, when really they are just trying to stay relevant and revamp their image into something more positive. They really don't know, nor care about what's going on, they just want to be attached to it.

  • Cara

    I'm so disappointed he would jump in and he knows better. He needs to go back to music and stick to his reality show. I only support the show because Tiny keeps it real but if he doesn't shut his trap he's about to be cancel no doubt.

    I can and I do. Black women need to wake up to reality. Black women been brainwashed like a motherfucker to resent non-black males. So quick to diss them all either their penis is pink and ugly or the penis is small etc.

    You will never or rarely hear a black male talk about he hates pink white or yellow titties!! Most black males will leap to defend a non-black female before they defend a black woman.

    I understand most of the commenters here are single mothers from down south. They are very protective of black males and obviously the favor isn’t returned.

    This story is just another lesson for black women some will hear and some will remain deaf dumb and blind.

    Here come the mammies. You’re so stupid and ignorant you don’t see the big picture.

    Now, I am about to share something that may not be popular, but back in the day my sister & I after smoking a joint decided to go to the zoo. When we got to the Gorilla/Monkey display we saw a Gorilla that was just sitting next to the glass ( it was like an underground view of the living space) we both immediately turned to each other & busted out laughing! We laughed so hard for like 10 minutes because man that gorilla looked JUST LIKE OUR DADDY! OMG...I am laughing now!! It was sooo damn funny & yes the joint may have influenced about 5 minutes of that good belly laugh, but I say this to say TI is right...It was just an observation & I don't think the lady meant it as a diss, but public figures definitely have to be careful how they word & say things...in this day people should know better than to reference a black person as a gorilla or monkey. BTW my DAD is my hero! RIP Herbert Lee! But man, that gorilla did look like you!! LMAO!

    I don't see it either, but the problem comes in when he did not professionally correct her. I saw the clip the other day, and they hang out when not at work his family and her family. He just sat there and agreed to her statment, maybe he was shocked, I don't know, nothing anyone says or does shocks me. But she would have felt really small after I would have snap back..

    I did a search when I got home and he is in a series since 2012 called “Family Time” on Bounce tv. Never heard of it and it has a season 6!!

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    His wife is Miss Piggy so he needs to hush

  • Reenaface

    Oh nice.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    See this here makes him lose whatever credibility he had, really down to zero, in my book! He was pandering to WP as a civil rights or hood activist!

    Especially, given how people have dragged his wife, or the insensitivity a person would feel, even if they do resemble an animal or mammal or reptile!

  • sliquehead

    Can we please stop acting like these "pseudo-WOKE" people are really gonna save us. Save yourselves my people. And don't forget to keep some extra cornbread with you in case the dogs are on your trail! "Harriet Tubman Tees"

  • dontgetblocked

    He took up for that one hit wonder Iggy Azalea. I never forgot that!

  • sliquehead

    Exactly! I knew he didn't mean us no good when I heard her sounding like Gangsta Boo on track, and The Queen of England in her interviews. I knew then he didn't have not ONE real person around him.

  • butterscotch

    I thought he abandoned her although she was his artist and signed to him

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Like someone mentioned earlier , buddy did favor , which is why he agreed in the first place . Certain People get compared to animals all the time , the same way snoop actually looks like a Doberman. The same way she favors a pale Great Dane , no cap. The problem is that rather it slipped or not, it was a bad joke , which is different from racist , both situations are wrong , but two separate things.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    There’s no lie, he favored , but it was still a bad joke , that doesn’t make it racist, both were inappropriate for different reasons. It was still inappropriate.

    Google hey pics and she legit favors an albino Great Dane. So just as it ain’t appropriate to say she favors a dog , her reference was out of place also.

  • Carrington

    He do kinda look like that monkey though...

  • lovelygamour

    if it wasnt for sandra I wouldnt no anything about t.i except rubberband man. he is the same man who basically put iggy azalea on a pedestal. I stopping supporting him eons ago.

  • lovelygamour

    he trying to do what jay-z is doing. he want people to give him money to smooth things over. but that aint going to happen. t.i needs to speak for himself only.

  • lovelygamour

    only after it got too too hot. but he let it get that way. had her talking tough and everything.

  • lovelygamour

    this made him look cheap. so he just comments on anything trending.

  • lovelygamour

    if its wasnt for sandra i wouldnt know what t.i, chris brown, draya, and a few other people are doing. they should thank her.

  • lovelygamour

    professionally husdan but hackett in such a bad spot. he has a nice job and the news is tough. he doesnt know if the show will last so he played along. she just put everybodys job at risk. some people will not tune in.

  • gellie

    They're conquered. That's what's wrong. They are a conquered species.

  • Floriduhh Evans

    Exactly, but always trying to play the pro-black role to stay relevant cause his music career is pretty much done

  • pure_rachet
