The Confederate flag has long been seen as a symbol of racism … and Sean Hannity is saying rap music is, too!
The conservative talk show host said on his radio show Thursday that if the Confederate flag is getting taken down, rap and hip-hop should get taken off the airwaves.
His reasoning: artists like Jay Z and 50 Cent use the n-word in their lyrics, and that is a racist term.

Hannity calls out Jay Z's wife Beyonce, too, saying that her use of the word "bitch" is misogynistic. Listen to his rationale:
Um … okay!
Last time we checked, Hov's words didn't incite a civil war.
Hannity went so far to even take a dig at President Obama and his daughters:
"If it's OK 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."
We think the free speech amendment that protects Hannity from expressing his views should apply to music artists too, right?!
