Notorious Rapper and reality star ‘Flavor Flav’ slammed socialist Democrat Presidential primary front-runner Bernie Sanders for falsey claiming that his group ‘Public Enemy’ would be performing as the act of one of his campaign events.
The rapper has been on record in the past making several pro-Trump statements.
As The Daily Wire reports:
A lawyer for the rapper, whose real name is William Drayton Jr., sent a “cease-and-desist” letter to the Sanders campaign on Friday, stating that Flav and Public Enemy have in no way endorsed the Democratic socialist who is currently the frontrunner for the 2020 presidential nomination.
“To be clear Flav and, by extension, the Hall of Fame hip hop act Public Enemy with which his likeness and name have become synonymous has not endorsed any political candidate in this election cycle and any suggestion to the contrary is plainly untrue,” said the statement from attorney Matthew H. Friedman.
The letter, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, says that although the group’s other founder, Chuck D, will perform at the Sanders event, that doesn’t count as a band endorsement…
The rapper claimed the move by Sanders was ‘grossly irresponsible’ and continued to blast Sanders stating:
“Sanders claims to represent everyman not the man yet his grossly irresponsible handling of Chuck’s endorsement threatens to divide Public Enemy and, in so doing, forever silence one of our nation’s loudest and most enduring voices for social change,” the letter says.
