“You know the root cause of terrorists is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists,” he said at the time.
Earlier this week, conservative Fox News host Bill O’Reilly issued a challenge to Fiasco to defend his criticism of the president.
“Mr. Fiasco has been invited on The Factor but has declined, possibly because he could not possibly defend that remark, which makes him a pinhead,” O’Reilly told viewers.
But apparently Fiasco didn’t know that.
“Whoa! I got invited to the O’reilly facter and turned it down???” Fiasco tweeted. “Thats news to me…would NEVER turn down the opp to push billys buttons.”
According to his blog, he has already taped the episode and it is scheduled air next week. It could be one of O’Reilly’s biggest nights, especially if the rapper’s 663,921 Twitter followers tune for what’s definitely going to be a heated and very interesting debate.
