Game Calls For Boycott Of FOX News Correspondent Over "Jesus Piece" Criticism

Game took to Twitter to denounce Michelle Malkin for calling his cover art blasphemous.

Game is no stranger to controversy and isn't afraid to hold back when it comes to criticism of his work. Chuck Taylor has lashed out at FOX News correspondent Michelle Malkin after she called the cover art for his Jesus Piece album blasphemous, speaking with DJ Skee about how he wants to boycott the network.

"It's basically there's a reporter on FOX News 11 named Michelle Malkin who voiced hate for the album cover and racist remarks because of what is our art form, what is something as simple as just art in the album cover," he explained. "We artists, and everything we do is artistic from the music to fashion to covers."

He went on to say that he's calling for a boycott of the network and that he will relentlessly see to it that it gets "shut down." "She has no place to make racial remarks or call the album blasphemous. This is the same lady who said President Obama is not American. I don't know the rationale, it doesn't make sense at all," he continued. "I was a big supporter of FOX News. I grew up on The Simpsons. they come on FOX 11, and now I'm going to do everything I can to shut them down because we can't allow that, especially going into a new year."

Malkin was met with threats and expletives on her Twitter account, to which she responded, "Note that @thegame and his fans use his salary to justify bad behavior. He makes more than me, so it's ok to call me a [insert expletive]."

    just so all you morons know its the fucking deluxe album cover the normal cover album has his dead brother fucking ignorant fucks

    R.E.D. album is 18 months old and is gold in sales worldwide. Jesus Piece will do similar numbers, so the label looking at about a million albums sound scan (retail profit) and 1.4 million shipped (label and artist profit). So, in the long run, Game will profit about $300,000.00 off of both albums combined and the label (Jimmy and whomever else) will split about $5,700,000.00 in profit. Game also makes a profit of $20,000 per show, so he should at least make least $1,500,000.00 from performance fees for both albums combined, when it's all said and done. How many how us could make $1,800,000.00 (after tax) in only 36 months? An income of $600,000 per year, is more than what doctor's make annually and most of them, go to school for 10 years or more.

    I bet he wouldn't do this with anything from Islam. He knows better & knows what he can get away with.

    • Anonymous

      Because Islam has followed the rule of no images, Christians didn't follow the rule. But the programming is deep when people allow "Family Guy" to show Jesus as a golf cheater or a Hollywood playboy AND god trying to have sex with no condom but are outraged when he's shown as a "thug n*gga" on a rapper's CD. It's ok so long as he's white and in charge ("American Dad" where god is the CEO in a suit and tie) and this thought even comes from some Blacks.

    whats blasphemy the picture of jesus because if you read the bible thats not what jesus is described as so i look at it as a deep cover to show the cover up and how we cover ourselves up with jewelry it makes us feel godly i would call it art and a good piece of art to show how we been decieved to call a false picture jesus

    • @ anonymous #2

      "what Game did was offensive to millions of people who may not know what he looks like, but who have faith just the same" ^ this makes no sense at all Faith and spirituality in the hopes of a righteous life have nothing to do with a PICTURE so it's impossible to be the same. The PROGRAMMING is so deep, people are SUBLIMINALLY lashing out because Game didn't conform with a PICTURE they are used to seeing, the Michelangelo, King James version of Jesus. "Obviously nobody knows what Jesus looks like" ^ bible gives a description dude And let me know when a cop will hear a description of a male with woolly hair and feet colored like brass and pick up a white guy with shoulder length hair.

    everyone here is ridiculous. jesus and god are made up characters in a story called the bible that was written by a man. i bet in a thousand or so years someone will find harry potter and try to make a serious religion out of that too. pathetic. live a good life and be good people. because it's the right thing to do, not to be a sheep and get into the vip area of death.

    game is wrong on this one. point blank period will not elaborate any further.

  • Ny-Harlem

    Yo this Album and Album cover is a great example to what Game is talking about. At first i thought game was wilding with the Album Cover. But after i got his message its perfect. Everything we learn from our religion is blasphemist. From jesus picture to how we contradict so many things in religion. I think the Album cover is great but thats after i understood the concept. Its a shame Game isn't getting more respect for this album. Tho he did get alot of respect. I think he deserves more. I never would have thought Game would have put together an Album with a thoughtful concept like Jesus Piece.

  • the truth

    About Michelle Malkin according to Wikipedia: "Malkin was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Philippine citizens Rafaela (ne Perez) a homemaker and teacher and Apolo DeCastro Maglalang, who was then a physician-in-training.[1] Several months prior to Malkin's birth, her parents had immigrated to the United States on an employer-sponsored visa." With that in mind, check this out: "Malkin believes that the custom of granting automatic U.S. citizenship at birth to children of foreign tourists, to temporary, foreign workers and to anchor babies delivered by illegal aliens on American soil undermines the integrity of citizenship & national security. She argues that the citizenship clause, "originally intended to ensure the citizenship rights of newly freed slaves and their families after the Civil War, has evolved into a magnet for alien lawbreakers and a shield for terrorist infiltrators and enemy combatants". This should sum up the kind of brainwashing Fox news has over their people, and the kind of mentality a hypocrite would have, especially attacking Obama's heritage and background, when they too have similar backgrounds. FUCK YOU Malkin! AND FUCK YOU FOX NEWS

    Game shouldn't be racist. Why make Jesus black? Why? Its like he has a problem with him being white. I doubt Jesus would want you to focus on the color of his skin in the first place or depict him as a gang banger. The albums decent though but Game needs to drop the racist act.

      Jesus is a black from north africa, The racist white italian michaelangelo painted jesus white 1400 years after jesus died and you idiots take that image and think thats jesus. That is the white devils trick. The bible tells you jesus feet is the color of burned brass and his hair is the texture of wool. Whick white man you know with burned color and wooly hair dummy.

      hes not racist hes right.. everyone n there moms know jesus is white that dont mean bec u support him ur wrong.. and if u are to depict him as a blackmale which is false then u settin him in rags and lookin like he bangin is fucked up.. that said the album covers creative for hiphop i like it

      What's blasphemous is Christians being so appalled over an IMAGE when THEIR RELIGION has COMMANDMENTS, and the FIRST ONE SAYS "NO GRAVEN IMAGES OF ME". No PICTURES or STATUES. Walk into a church and you see MANY GRAVEN IMAGES, on stained glass, crucifixes with Jesus on it, statues of Jesus, mosaic murals on the roof, elaborate marble pillars. You've BEEN co-signing blasphemy.

    If every hip hop fan boycotted Fox News, Fox News would have the exact same amount of supporters. People who watch Fox News don't give a shit about hip hop, so his boycott efforts are a pointless waste of time and energy. Also, The Simpsons wasn't ever on Fox News, it was on Fox. That's like saying you're a supporter of CNN because you grew up watching TNT (both Time Warner companies).

    Calling these cats an artist is wrong on so many levels. Especially Game, who 5 albums deep in the game, yet still failed to put significant artistic value any of his albums. His first two LP for me was excellent, since then he somehow lost everything he ever was. I'm not saying that Documentary and Doctor's Advocate was dope because Game's overwhelming personality, advanced rhyme patterns or incredible creatity. Regardless if he's doing dope- or wackness, it's hard to see the value that Game himself adds to his materials, when it comes to classical artistic viewpoints he is nothing special. To give a little example for the opposite, one of the greatest in the game in that regard is Big Boi. Check out his projects, you can feel his footsteps every product he ever made. What he's doing could be easily identifed, filled with energy, varicoloured and has a specific flavour. Or maybe a bit different example, but look at Preemo. If you bumping a song or instrumental for the first time, you can tell if its made by DJ Premier. And while its true that he has the same style over 20 years without further evolvement, but at least he has one, unlike Game or 90+% of these other hip-hop cats.

      @Anonymous, @Confsued Reader: Oh, really? Then, can you point where I stated that it was excellent _because_ Game? Clearly not. The keyword is creative control in both cases. While I'm not denying Game's skills as a sufficient rapper, when it comes to literally "producing" any form of art, he cannot deliver. Just listen again the aforementioned two LPs, you can't feel that nobody but Game could've made those tracks that special. Then do the same with any remarkable hip-hop album, not necessary a classic, but of course the contrast will be the highest with those. And while you can't imagine Illmatic without Nas, every Game album should've been done by somebody else who can show up decent skills, and probably wouldn't be worse.
