The mainstream media loves to rehabilitate the image of losers. They may not be familiar with a rapper’s catalog of songs, but they know exactly how many times he’s been locked up and why.
Rappers who have been busted on drug and gun charges are particularly favored. The media repackages these gangsta rappers as misunderstood victims of society whose images can be tamed and rendered less threatening.
Take rapper Chief Keef for instance. Before the 17-year-old Chicago rapper was busted for drug possession and driving recklessly, The Observer editors probably couldn’t name his latest hit record.
Lately it seems troubled pop singer Justin Bieber’s name has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Bieber, 19, caused a commotion when he showed up 2 hours late for a concert at London’s 02 Arena in March. Then he feigned breathing problems to gain sympathy from his fans and the press.
He followed those antics up by leaving an insulting message in the visitor’s log at Holocaust victim Anne Frank’s memorial center. Now comes word that Swedish police found pot and a stun gun on Bieber’s tour bus on Wednesday. His 15 minutes aren’t up yet?
After Ghanian promoters complained loudly that American singer Chris Brown took $1 million and skipped out on them, the singer showed up after all — with a bag full of weed on stage!
I would support President Obama for reelection if he would impose mandatory birth control on hoodrats like this woman who gave her infant weed to smoke. In the cell phone video, which first appeared on Worldstar Hip Hop, the woman offers the child a hit off of her marijuana cigarette. The little boy appears to be glassy eyed and behaving as if he is under the influence from the addictive substance. The woman is apparently a resident of South Carolina. If you know who she is, please contact police or your local child welfare services.
Watch the shocking video after the break.
