#7. FOX News & Sarah Palin Denounce Common’s Appearance At The White House
Date: May 10
After first lady Michelle Obama extended an invitation for a poetry reading at The White House to Common, FOX News took their usual stand against hip-hop and called Common a "vile rapper." A day later, Sarah Palin followed suit and sarcastically tweeted in disapproval of Michelle Obama's decision. The conservative hate prompted the normally mild-mannered Com to respond with some tweets of his own, but in the end the ethering was left to John Stewart. Smarten up, FOX.
