Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron has issued a statement regarding Megan Thee Stallion‘s recent performance on Saturday Night Live.
While delivering a performance of “Savage” in New York, the Houston native took aim at the figure overseeing the Breonna Taylor case. During the performance, the words, “Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout negros that sold our people into slavery,” were projected on to the screen behind her.
As expected, Cameron has responded to the best-selling artist’s statement. In a short release, Cameron painted himself as the victim and said that he is targeted because of his political views.
“The fact that someone would get on national television and make disparaging comments about me because I’m simply trying to do my job, is disgusting,” Cameron said during an appearance on Fox & Friends.
“At the end of the day, my responsibility is to provide facts and truth and represent and stand up for justice,” he added.
Cameron has come under fire because many have felt that justice was not served in regards to Taylor. Taylor was killed on March 13 during a raid on her house. Despite being shot seven times and killed by police, no officers were charged in her death.
In the days since the grand jury delivered its findings, jurors have seemingly been unhappy with the way Cameron’s office handled the process. He also claimed that Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, shot one of the officers during the raid. However, recent ballistics reports have not proven that claim to be true. Not to mention, the person that officers were looking for during the raid hadn’t made contact with Taylor in some time. Despite having this information, officers still moved forward with serving the search warrant. All of that and more have been driving forces behind the criticism of Cameron.
