Hip-Hop Icons Join Kamala Harris in Milestone Anniversary Party
Hip-hop stars Common, Jeezy, MC Lyte, and Roxanne Shante were among those invited to the party with Harris and second gentleman Doug Emhoff. Trolls and Kamala Harris’ political rivals were quick to criticise the leader for taking time off after seeing the video of her dancing to a song made by Q-Tip of the well-known alternative hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest went viral.
Critics Launch Harsh Remarks on Social Media Over Kamala Harris’ Hip-Hop Celebration
Podcaster and political strategist Joey Mannarino also took to X, formerly Twitter, to say that the timing was not right, while lacing it with indecent, sexual remarks. “It’s mid-September and our country is burning down: inflation rages, an economic depression looms, illegal immigration tears us apart at the seams. Joe Biden is somewhere sleeping and Kamala Harris is dancing to Q-Tip at a backyard party. Hopefully she doesn’t get too drunk and go OG Throat Goat on someone!”
