Skip to comments.Guess Which Famous Singer Just Called Louis Farrakhan a ‘Super Hero’
Posted on 04/18/2013 8:08:25 AM PDT by Impala64ssa
Singer Erykah Badu took to her Twitter account early in the morning on Wednesday to share her very-candid views on the Minister Louis Farrakhan. Rather than taking aim at some of the divisive comments that the faith leader continues to utter, she labeled him a Super Hero and a beautiful, brave being.
Louis Farakahn is a SuperHero. Thats A beautiful brave being, she wrote (note: the ministers name is Farrakhan not Farakahn as noted in her tweet; spelling and grammar kept in tact).
Clearly confounded by the message, Twitchy asked, Since when are racism and anti-Semitism beautiful or brave?, referring to the Nation of Islam leaders seemingly contentious and fiery commentary about whites and Jews, among others.
In an effort to further highlight the curious nature of Badus pro-Farrakhan tweet, Twitchy also noted that, last year, the singer tweeted a message that the outlet believes the faith leader would patently reject.
In Aug. 2012, Badu tweeted, Race should be taken off of EVERY form. We are all Americans. To this, Twitchy responded, Criticism of the race card is just the sort of thing that would send superhero Farrakhan into uncontrollable fits of rage.
Later, following push-back on Twitter, Badu seemingly defended her praise of Farrakhan.
So, it seems Farrakhan has the support of a Grammy-Award winning singer, despite his intensely divisive and troubling language, which TheBlaze has extensively documented.
Who the hell is that?
Is it any wonder why I never heard of her.
My thoughts exactly. Scary dang hair too.
Yes, she’s famous for being unknown...
That threw me for a minute. The headline said 'famous'.
What is this Badu of which you speak? Does it fertilize plants?
famous = mildly popular 15 years ago
Have no idea who she is....
Famous, yet overrated.
I see she finally took that dish towel off her head.
In this instance I believe a burqa is necessary.
Never heard of her.
Her hair makes it look like her head exploded. Maybe it did.
Wow... am I ever out of the loop. Never heard of this singer.
i have no idea who she is.
Badu is an excellent singer/songwriter. That doesn’t mean she knows what she’s talking about on political/social issue. I don’t hold the stupidity of artists/musicians/actors against them, I just ignore them.
Well, at least she's right about that, 100% right.
