Justin Bieber doesn't typically weigh in when it comes to political commentary, but he chose to speak up Thursday (April 18) and add to the growing list of artists who have blasted Fox News host Laura Ingraham for her disgusting comments mocking Nipsey Hussle after his fatal shooting.

In a widely circulated clip from The Ingraham Angle on Friday, Ingraham discusses Hussle's memorial service and plays a portion of YG's years-old anti-Trump single "FDT", on which Hussle features.

The clip featured Teigen commenting that "women should say f**k you more often", which resulted in Teigen following her own advice and cursing Ingraham.

"No wonder they were so angry today", Ingraham added, before concluding that most of all it's "the American people" who are owed an apology. 'How dare you laugh in the face of a person who has passed on. "Is that related to the lowest unemployment ever, basically, for African Americans?" said Ingraham before laughing about the lyrics with another on-air personality. Doesn't matter who it is.

He also called for Laura Ingraham to be sacked.

Her coverage has led to outcry for her firing from the network.

The Game, a close friend of the late rapper, was one of several prominent music figures to took to social media and demand Ingraham be held accountable for her behavior.

"If our demographic doesn't effect that we will STOP support of ALL SPONSORS immediately!" "Nips passing nor his legacy is to be taken lightly as there will be consequences for any disrespect now or in the future as long as I have a voice!".

Laura Ingraham is known for being a strong supporter of Donald Trump.

In March 2018 Ingraham also faced backlash, and lost advertisers, after she taunted Parkland mass shooting survivor David Hogg over his college rejections.
