2Pac's Brother Criticizes Trump Campaign for 'Disrespectful' Dig at Kamala Harris
Ahead of last week's US Vice-President debate between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris, the Trump campaign took a trolling move against the Democratic candidate by reserving a seat for 2Pac.
The late legendary West Coast rapper apparently did not appear up for debate because he died in 1996, but the intent behind the ticket was a blow to Harris, who recently dubbed him "the best rapper in the world". "I'll keep doing this," she laughed when CNN commentator Angela Rye pointed out that Tupac is not yet alive. Mopreme Shakur, the late rapper's stepbrother, has criticized the Trump campaign for the "clearly disrespectful" ticket gesture, reports TMZ.
"We should know Trump's lack of respect for the black and brown community," said Shakur, who made his feelings about Trump and Pence clear. Although he knows Trump won't apologize for the incident, he said he could make it up to him by getting his father, Tupac's stepfather Mutulu, out of jail. While it's a big question on his part, Trump has helped get certain people out of jail early on during his tenure. Mutulu was sentenced to 60 years in prison in 1988 on a number of charges, including armed bank robbery and bank robbery murders. He has been denied parole eight times so far.
As for Kamala, who calls Pac the "best rapper alive," Shakur said he's glad the vice president hopefully has good taste in music. He also said that since Kamala Harris is from Oakland, it's not surprising that she is a fan.
