The British rapper refuses to be called ‘aggressive’ after vehemently dodging questions about Black Lives Matter during an appearance on ‘Good Morning Britain’.
AceShowbiz –Dizzee Rascal refused to be goaded into speaking on the Black Lives Matter movement by British journalist Piers Morgan during a U.K. TV interview on Tuesday, June 23, 2020.
The “Bonkers” star appeared on the breakfast TV show, Good Morning Britain“, to discuss the introduction of “drive-in raves” to replace live concert spaces during the coronavirus pandemic.
However, when Piers asked Dizzee, real name Dylan Kwabena Mills, to explain why those who believe All Lives Matter are missing the point in the debate on equality, the grime star declined to do so.
“It’s really nice and sunny out today, and I can’t really be bothered to go into all of this morning,” Dizzee said. “I’ve brought my afro out, I’m looking a bit natural and that, so maybe that’s why you’re asking the question, but not today.”
Piers insisted, “Dizzee, come on, that’s not why I’m asking you the question. You’re a high-profile black man in this country and it’s a huge issue, and has been for the past four weeks.”
The “Dance Wiv Me” hitmaker continued to dismiss the topic, however, saying, “You know what, I watch you on telly and you never let no one speak, I’m not the one, you’re not going to do this to me mate.”
The former “America’s Got Talent” judge said that this was an “aggressive answer to a simple question,” which Dizzee did not take kindly to, firing, “This is what happens, I become the aggressive black man!”
“I told you! I just wanted to be nice, and look how he’s behaving!”
