The rapper Stormzy was attacked by UK MP Philip Davies who called Stormzy’s recent political comments on Grenfell as “boring”. The Tory MP assaulted the rapper while he was being interviewed on RT’s ‘Sam Delaney’s News Thing’.
“I have no interest in what Stormzy has to say at the Brit Awards about anything political. It’s all these sort of left-wing artists playing to the gallery and all the rest of it. It’s boring,” claimed the MP.
The interviewer asked him to make it clear if he thought a “young black guy from a working class community who sympathizes” with the people died in Grenfell Tower tragedy from “local government negligence” was “boring,” Davies didn’t retreated. Stormzy was, for Davies, “playing to the gallery to try and look cool,” adding “it’s all part of trying to be trendy and pro-Corbyn.”
Last month the Grime star Stormzy assailed Theresa May over her response the Grenfell Tower tragedy. He said that the PM should be burnt down to “see if you can manage this.” He has also blamed her for failing to manage the hundreds of residents left homeless after the 24-story tower block turned to inferno.
“Like yo Theresa May where’s the money for Grenfell…What, you thought we just forgot about Grenfell?” He went on: “You criminals, and you got the cheek to call us savages,” said the rapper. “You should do some jail time/ you should pay some damages… we should burn your house down and see if you can manage this,” he continued.
