Via Instapundit I came across some sort of Twitter beef between Michelle Malkin and the rapper The Game. We’ll see how the snarkerati (h/t Heartiste) respond to this story since they’re oh so concerned with online and Twitter-based misogyny. I expect a nominal post on the topic but nothing as “OMG worst thing ever” as they’d save for regular old blog commenter misogyny.
Here was the post at Malkin’s website. She criticized the cover of The Game’s latest album which depicts Jesus with a Blood’s bandana over his face. Here are some screen caps of the conversation between The Game, his fans, and Malkin. From Michelle Fields:
I noted a couple of incidents earlier this year involving the rapper and some fans in Australia. In once incident, The Game spit on a few female fans who were dancing near stage. There is video of the incident which make The Game’s excuse that he was provoked seem like a lie. When confronted with these accusations The Game placed the blame on the “cracker” media.
Another incident involved the rapper bringing a female fan on stage. After being accosted by The Game’s entourage, the rapper emceed a sort of freaknick dance off and tried to get her to show her “titties”. One of The Game’s entourage, Kid Red, pushed the woman off stage.
What I wrote then about The Game applies to the taunts and threats aimed at Malkin – though the feminist snarkerati will likely ignore the exchange on that grounds that, hey, Michelle Malkin is a racist and employed by the racist Fox News. Makes it all OK.
