Fat Joe slams Daddy Yankee for McCain endorsement

Fat Joe slams Daddy Yankee for McCain endorsement

When Daddy Yankee appeared at a meet and greet with John McCain earlier this week, it was super awkward, and above all, really bizarre. When news leaked that he had approached Barack Obama's campaign first, and had been turned down (which Daddy Yankee denies) it started to make a little more sense. Fat Joe with the surprisingly lucid explanation:

 

"The reason why I called him a sellout is because I feel he did that for a [publicity] look, rather than the issues that are affecting his people that look up to him. How could you want John McCain in office when George Bush and the Republicans already have half a million people losing their homes in foreclosure? We’re fighting an unjust war. It’s the Latinos and black kids up in the frontlines, fighting that war. …   I feel real disgusted that Daddy Yankee would do that. Either he did that for a look, or he’s just not educated on politics.”

 

[Nah Right]

I was waiting for some Daddy Yankee backlash, aside from what I doing with my friends.I'm sure there will be more from both camps!

Latinos and black kids? Somebody should tell this retard that Vietnam is over. That kind of thinking doesn't mean much to white mothers losing their sons in Iraq. Always the race card that gets played when a reasonable argument can't be made. But whatever it takes to get phony respect from kids who don't know better, right?

Dont hate me for speaking the truth. My world dictates that people be held responsible for being stupid comments and this FAt Joe guy is seriously in need of enlightenment. He's offended because a black man dared to support a white candidate. If Hillary had won the nomination this wouldn't be news.

The comment make Fat Joe look like he doesn't know politics. Only black and latins at frontline WTF? And McCain does not equal George Bush. And he brings up foreclosures, which is probably the only thing he knows about, since he is in that situation.

I guess that Jungle Cowboy didn't know that Daddy Yankee is a Puerto Rican. Anyways, Fat Joe does have the right to question the reason(s) why Daddy Yankee supports McCain. Moreover, for HipHop fans it is a little awkward to see a HipHop/Reggaeton artist supporting McCain. Lord knows county music fans were about to lose their minds when the Dixie Chicks stated that they were against Bush's war.

How can you sit there and talk about Fat Joe does not know what he is talking about? but the only argument you have is that he is to fat and the reason why he's fat..... Comment on the situation and not on looks, every body can do that. If you think Fat Joe is wrong debate it with a valid point. But on a realistic note John McCain probably would not make Daddy Yankee his friend if it would not be election time.

Ummmm so don't all these people have like a crazy amount of money?? Like they really know what its like to be broke and be losing there homes. I think they should all keep there opinions to themselves. Thank ya very much!

The beautiful thing about democracy is that everyone gets an opinion. You are free to disagree, but no one has to shut up. Not even brown-skinned rappers.

As to your first contention, John McCain is wealthy and will NEVER know what it's like to go through a foreclosure. Should he shut up too? Not that I'd mind if he did, I'm just saying.
