A majority of the U.S. has finally had enough of Donald Trump and his band of supporters. The hip-hop community in particular, is tired of the daily headlines concerning racism and white supremacy, and is now starting to take action. Bun B’s name has recently gone viral after the rapper was captured on video confronting a white Trump supporter, who allegedly gave him the middle finger.
In a short video clip that was published on Instagram, Bun B is seen walking straight up to a white man wearing a “Trump 2016” shirt with the president’s infamous slogan, “Make America Great Again,” on it. He begins the encounter by yelling, “f**k you,” in the man’s ear. His reasoning for the swearing was because the man allegedly flicked him off as a symbol of racial discrimination. His gesture wasn’t recorded however.
Before you know it, things begin to escalate, with the protester seemingly responding to Bun’s comments by getting in his face as well. Although a number of bystanders attempt to break up the situation, the two continue to exchange profanities. Bun B also manages to slide in some points about his education background. “I’m a college motherf**ker,” he yells. Before the situation grew violent, police officers stepped in, demanding both sides walk away from each other.
Bun B is just one of many celebs and influencers who is lashing out, whether that be in real life or on social media. Solange recently shared a lengthy rant on Instagram, condemning Nazis and “racist ugly a** f**k bois.” John Legend, Questlove and others have also spoken out on social media. Bun’s confrontation comes shortly after a change.org petition launched, calling for the artist to be banned from all Houston sports games because he is believed to be a jinx. So alleged discrimination, on top of an already terrible week, may have been just the thing to truly set him over the edge.
