Rapper Trina has come under fire for urging Miami's Mayor to extend the curfew in an effort to keep looting "animals" off the streets.

Speaking to former rapper Trick Daddy on Miami's 99 Jamz Radio, Trina was asked for her opinion on the ongoing violent protests sweeping the U.S.

Trina, ran name Katrina Laverne Taylor, took aim at the lawless looters, who are using a tragic murder as a distraction to vandalize and steal from hard working business owners -- many of whom are Black.

The "Pull Over" rapper called on Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez to extend the city's curfew from 9 p.m. to 5 p.m. to help Miami police clear the streets.

"Keep everybody off the street, these animals off the streets, that are running around in Miami-Dade County acting like they have escaped from a zoo," she said.

"Lock them up at 5pm so the streets can be nice and clean, that's how I feel."

Trina, 45, voiced the frustration felt by many in the Black community who believe the protests have been hijacked by criminals who don't care about George Floyd, the Black Minnesota man who was killed in police custody on May 25.

She went on to explain a friend's business had been destroyed by looters and vandals and she also insisted that many of them were "fake" activists.

"Half of y'all marching are not even caring about this man," she raged, adding, "We can't bring back nobody lives that has been taken away, whether it's from the police or the hands of another civilian... You cannot pump life back into them at all. I can't bring back my little brother's life; his life was taken by the hands of a man, a black man."

The rap star's brother, Wilbrent Bain, Jr., was shot and killed in Northwest Miami-Dade in 2013.

Trina's comments upset a lot of fans and followers, who took to social media to "cancel" her.

One critic was actress and singer Masika Kalysha, who tweeted:

"U OWE ME & EVERYONE ELSE AN APPOLOGY FOR THAT S**T U DEFECATED OUT THEM BLACK A** LIPS. How u wrong but prideful? I used to look up to u! U inspired my 1st single! I am ashamed that I thought u were someone to aspire to be like [sic]."

The tweet prompted Trina to respond:

"@masikakalysha I will address the people. But u dumb a** b**ch I don't owe u s**t. U can eat a duck diet bag. [The f*ck] is wrong with u."

The former Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood star fired back:

"This old a** crumb tryna race me barefoot ill-equipped outta shape & unfit. No match. Yo poor thumbs justa shakin tryin thinka some whitty to say [sic]. THE WHOLE WORLD IS DRAGGIN U... U NEED ATTENTION...! ADDRESS THE MILLIONS OF PPL U LET DOWN."
