50 Cent Denounces Congressman Doug Lamborn For Calling President Obama A "Tar Baby"

Fif takes his Twitter podium to put Republican Lamborn on blast for making a racially charged statement about Obama.

Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn recently made controversial comments regarding President Barack Obama, branding him a “tar baby” while discussing the debt ceiling debate. Though he later apologized for using the racial epithet, rapper 50 Cent has taken his Twitter podium to denounce Lamborn, ranting that the Colorado representative should be removed from office.

“Republican congressman Doug Lamborn should be re leaved of his duties after calling president Obama a tar baby,” he wrote. “Tar baby is a synonym for nigger, except it is only used in bigoted manners, were as nigga can be a sign of respect. The term comes from a children's story in witch they explain that slaves were"dark and dumb"due to the fact they were" baptized in TAR" #SK. I can't find a more disrespectful or ignorant way to describe the race or depiction of our president.”

Lamborn first made the comments during an interview with a Denver radio show, saying, "I don't even want to have to be associated with him. It's like touching a 'tar baby.'" Since then, he sent an apology letter to the president and released a statement of apology to the public.
