*Ice-T took his ire against Rush Limbaugh to Twitter after the conservative radio host on Tuesday expressed shock that he knew the meaning of the word “tyranny.”
As previously reported, the rapper-turned-actor recently defended gun ownership in an interview on London news, calling the right to bear arms “the last form of defense against tyranny.” Limbaugh praised his stance on the issue, but found his use of the word “tyranny” with a British “sophisticate” especially impressive.
“He knew the word ‘tyranny,’” Limbaugh said. “And he knows that tyranny comes from government representatives. Double impressive.”
Ice-T took offence. “Rush Limbaugh said he was impressed I knew the word ‘tyranny’… He’s a racist piece of sh–,” he tweeted.
Later, he responded to some of the replies, saying “Hahah some of y’all are saying Limbaugh is not racist?? Check this” and linked to an article called “Top 10 Racist Limbaugh Quotes.” He also directed fans of Limbaugh and Bill O’Reilly to “UNFOLLOW now.”
