DJ Envy Argues Stop-And-Frisk Took Guns Off The Streets
Following Monday night’s opening presidential debate between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump, Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee and DJ Envy of The Breakfast Club cracked the mic on the evening’s most heated discussion, ‘stop-and-frisk.’
While DJ Envy, who is reportedly African American with Puerto Rican ancestry, did not explicitly express his support of the controversial program designed to target young black and Latino men, he did argue that it “got guns off the streets and that’s all that matters” early Tuesday morning (Sept. 27).
Many listeners, including fans of the celebrated disk jockey, took to Twitter to air their frustrations over his problematic sentiment toward ‘stop-and-frisk,’ which was ruled unconstitutional in New York City, as it directed police officers to disproportionately stop and search black and Latino male pedestrians for weapons and contraband.
Yee seems to be at odds with her coworker, while Charlamagne implies Envy said nothing to cause the viral hysteria:
I would love if they stop and frisk him constantly https://t.co/oEKQpzQRTG
