The hip-hop community has been in an uproar since beloved rapper 21 Savage was detained by Immigration officials, to be deported from the U.S. One of many rappers to step up and defend him is Nicki Minaj. Nicki called out controversial conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren, after she made jokes about 21’s possible deportation. She switched the lyrics to 21 Savage’s “Bank Account” to “I got one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight ICE agents ready to report ya.”

Nicki swiftly fired back at Lahren. “Your obsession w/our culture is scary to say the least. I hate giving you the attention you so desperately crave. Laughing @ ppl getting deported as if your ancestors discovered America. Are you Native American? You fkn clown.”

Tomi of course, felt the need to reply. “When you’re in the country illegally, you get deported. I didn’t write the law and neither did ICE. They enforce it. I hope @21savage is able to get an entertainment visa or become a citizen one day. P.S. My ancestors did discover America.”
