Rapper Lupe Fiasco might have just created a fiasco for himself.
The singer, a political activist, told CBS News that he thinks President Obama is a terrorist. Said Fiasco:
- "In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama, and the United States of America ... I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists."
Fiasco, whose song "The Show Goes On" is currently No. 10 on Billboard's Top 100, doesn't believe in using vulgarity and degrading women in his lyrics. He doesn't drink alcohol or use drugs, and he's active in charity work.
What do you think? Is Lupe's comment disrespectful?
Fiasco is also known for his hit song "Superstar."
