Sean Hannity suggested on Wednesday that if stores are going to stop selling Confederate flags, then perhaps they should also stop selling rap music containing the N-word.
“I have a question: can you still buy a Jay-Z CD at Walmart? Does the music department at Sears have any Ludacris albums? Can I download 50 Cent on Amazon? Can I do that? Can I get some Snoop Dogg albums on eBay?” he asked on his radio show after discussing stores that will no longer sell Confederate flags.
“Why do I say that?” Hannity continued. “Because a lot of the music by those artists are chock-full of the ‘N word,’ and the ‘B-word,’ and the ‘H-word,’ and racist, misogynist, sexist, anti-woman slurs none of those retail executives would be caught dead using.”
Hannity said that he is fine with Confederate flag bans, but suggested that perhaps certain music should be banned as well. He also mentioned that President Obama has invited artists like Jay-Z and Beyonce to the White House.
“So, if it’s okay for Obama’s teenage daughters and people to go into these stores and buy music chock-full of the N-word, the B-word, well maybe we should consider banning that too. We’re in the process of banning everything. Just a thought,” he said.
