‘I Know It’s Killing You That Obama Is In Office!’ Damon Dash Goes Off On Daily News Reporters Outside Of Courthouse
While heading to court for testimonies regarding the $1 million lawsuit filed against him by his son’s mother, Linda Williams, hip hop mogul Damon Dash lashed at out a group of New York Daily News reporters. His interesting rant was captured on film.
“How come you never talk about the positive stuff? ‘Cause I’m black?” Damon questioned the reporters.
Damon went on to point out that instead of simply covering his current court case, the Daily News insists on bringing up skeletons from his past, including his highly publicized financial troubles.
“You’re a racist, republican paper! I know it’s killing you that Obama is in office. It’s killing you that you went to school to write for a paper that’s not credible.”
Clearly frustrated with the media’s fixation on driving negative news to the bone, he then pointed out some of his major business accomplishments that frequently go unnoticed.
“Why don’t you say: ‘He has art galleries around the world,’ ‘He has independently owned companies that do well over $50 million,’ ‘He employs at least 10 people at any given time.’ You never say that! Why?”
“I can pay everybody else’s bills but y’all just want to talk about the ones y’all think I haven’t paid. The same exact tax bullsh*t for five years…get a new story!”
