Piers Morgan Slams Black Lives Matter Movement — And Talib Kweli Responds F-U-riously!

What are you thinking, Piers Morgan?!

On the very same day that he owned up to an apology for Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, Morgan decides to go right back to being a nincompoop, fresh with a truly terrible take on Black Lives Matter!

The British blowhard kicked things off with a weird teaser tweet (below):

Uh… thanks for the heads up?

Sure enough, exactly one hour later, we got… this column:

“When the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag first sprang up on social media, I responded by tweeting #AllLivesMatter and got roundly abused for exercising my supposed ├óΓé¼╦£racist white privilege’. But my issue with the movement was not born from any notion that blacks don’t get an unfair deal from American society, because they absolutely do.

Centuries of institutional racism have left African-Americans with higher poverty rates, worse education due to poorly funded schools, appallingly higher rates of incarceration and a far greater statistical likelihood of being targeted by police.

No, my issue was born from a serious concern that this particular movement, named as it is, would lead to more, not less division in an already race-charged country.”

The bumbling buffoon took on the case of Montrell Williams — one of the police officers tragically murdered in Baton Rouge over the weekend — and in the process, wildly accused Beyonc├â┬⌐ of egging on the movement. (No, seriously! It’s CRAZY, but seriously!)

Here’s what Morgan wrote:

“After the police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, Beyonc├â┬⌐ demanded justice. ├óΓé¼╦£We are sick and tired of the killings of young men and women in our communities,’ she said. ├óΓé¼╦£It’s up to us to take a stand and demand they stop killing us. We’re going to stand up as a community and fight against anyone who believes that murder or any violent action by those who are sworn to protect us should consistently go unpunished.’ I knew what she meant, but did Eugene Long? Or did he think this gave him licence to go kill a cop?

Last night, during another concert, Beyonc├â┬⌐ dedicated her song Halo to the victims of the Turkey uprising. She said nothing about Montrell Williams. Black Lives Matter was a well-intentioned idea that’s gone bad very quickly and now represents a real and present danger to all police officers, of all colours.

The bottom line is this: if black lives matter so much, why are black Americans executing black Americans? It makes no sense. It’s time we come together to agree that ├óΓé¼╦£All Lives Matter’ equally, and strive to achieve that goal.”

But don’t think for a second that Morgan wrote that inane garbage and didn’t get any reactions.

And Kweli came right back over the top again:


Good for Talib for standing up to it — Piers Morgan can just be the worst, can’t he?!
