Folks are still on a mission to get JAY-Z out of here, and this might be the third strike. A clip from a social justice panel with Van Jones and massage parlor connoisseur, Bob Kraft, along with others has folks on the internet in an uproar once again.
In the clip from the January panel, Hov explained that growing up in a single-parent could have an “adverse feeling toward authority” leading to people to tell the police “f*ck you.”He added that those reactions could “cause people to lose lives.”
Now, to be the fair, it’s just a clip of an entire panel and could be taken totally out of context. But it is totally understandable why some people are rolling their eyes at Jigga’s comments. This is the latest reason that people seem to be “ova Hova.” The 4:44 crafter has been under intense scrutiny since the announcement of his Roc Nation deal with the NFL that had Colin Kaepernick supporters sucking their teeth at JAY-Z.
Just recently we learned exactly what the fruit of the NFL x Roc Nation deal would be. It was revealed that fans could look forward to an Inspire Change apparel line and an NFL kickoff concert featuring artists represented by Hov’s company. Again, this could just be part of Jigga man’s plans, and we are willing to give JAY-Z the benefit of the doubt. Anyway, you can see the reactions to the clip in the gallery below. You can also share your thoughts with us in the comment section.

Jay-Z Gets Dragged For Comments He Made About Single Parent Households & Police was originally published on hiphopwired.com
“Y’all respect the one who got shot, i respect the shooter” -Jay Z on police brutality— (B)lack(H)istory(M)aine (@ThaMaineEvent) September 1, 2019
Jay Z really blamed the murders of Black people by police on the anger Black youth have for growing up in a house without their fathers.— Candice Marie Benbow (@CandiceBenbow) August 31, 2019
I honestly can’t believe I just watched him say that. I’m speechless.
Chess is a really stupid game.
Jay Z going out sad, man. That whole thing his wife does when she speaks like twice a year.....she gets it.— America is musty 2021 (@DragonflyJonez) September 1, 2019
That snotty nose JAY Z needs to remember where he came from, a single parent house has little to do with how people interact with the police....— Karen Propst (@nottaconformist) September 1, 2019
Jay Z to the NFL after victim blaming Black men for Police brutality and solving racism with merch pic.twitter.com/BzZLRGs8e6— #CERB Anunoby (@AbuNahhhh) September 2, 2019
What also boggles my mind about what Jay Z said is the blatant decision to ignore the fact that police killed Black people who followed their instructions. People who had their hands up. People who weren’t aggressive in any way. He’s just mizing the truth for his interests. pic.twitter.com/UNwKSx70bs— Sihle Bolani (@SihleBolani_) September 1, 2019
When you pick having dinner with Jay Z and then he tells you police brutality is because of absent fathers pic.twitter.com/rvNOB7zQxi— The LBJ+Bey Ship (@mamma_earth) September 1, 2019
Jay-Z’s mama is lesbian and this man is out here making these queer-antagonistic/racist statements about the importance of a “traditional” nuclear family.....it’s actually just.— mumbi. (@miss_mumbz) September 1, 2019
Jay-Z tried to explain Black people having an “adverse feeling toward authority” because we live in single parent homes and not because the police are an illegitimate authority with a monopoly of violence and repression that goes unchecked. https://t.co/8VIZ7gvKik— zellie (@zellieimani) August 31, 2019
Fun fact: you can love and admire Jay-Z AND disagree with him on an issue. The world will keep spinning. I promise.— Marc Lamont Hill (@marclamonthill) September 1, 2019

Those of us who criticized the Jay-Z and NFL partnership predicted this. Honestly, this is disgraceful.— mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) August 30, 2019
And if you think profits won’t go in the pockets of Jay Z and the NFL you’re a fool.
How do you with a straight face ban Kaepernick then make money off of him? https://t.co/XBHBIC7TsM
Jay-z and his clownery is gonna cause us to revisit Beyoncé’s complicity and I don’t want it pic.twitter.com/uEjmz573aK— whomst said that? (@WhomstSaidThat) August 31, 2019
In a way JAY-Z is today’s James Brown.JB did everything 50 years ago in scale. Mr JB used to say he was 75% businessman 25% talent. He too was criticized for making a critical alliance but Mr Soul Brother Number One got through it. Hopefully Jay will too. The Time is changing— Chuck D (@MrChuckD) September 2, 2019
