After showing a section of "FDT", the giggling Fox News host said the song had "a very creative refrain".

His memorial at the Staples Center drew more than 21,000 people and many more who spilled outside the stadium and lined the streets that led up to his clothing store to say goodbye on Thursday.

"So ... the chorus it goes on and on. Is that related to the lowest unemployment ever basically for African Americans?"

Although we've come to expect ignorance and lack of respect from Fox News outlets, this time there's a call to action: Fire Laura Ingraham, once and for all.

Rapper "The Game" called Ingraham a "disrespectful c***" and called on his 10.3 million followers on Instagram to demand she be fired by putting pressure on her advertisers. "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!"

Duke forward Zion Williamson declares for 2019 NBA Draft
The projected No. 1 overall pick called his freshman year, "the best year of (his) life". The NBA draft lottery will take place May 14.

California rapper Snoop Dogg signed onto The Game's effort to have Ingraham fired, replying to the post by saying, "I'm in".

"This is Disgusting! You both are vile despicable, poor excuses for people".

"My expectations have already decreased so much for mankind in the past couple weeks that this hardly surprised me", he said.

You know, there's some things that you just don't do. The Game has previously expressed opposing views with the hosts of the "Right-Wing" news channel - Tomi Lauren and now, Laura Ingraham. "EVEN IN DEATH! So let that sizzle in ya lil hateful, demonic spirits", Tip wrote before logging off.

Disrespecting the deceased is not news!

Several rappers tore into Ingraham and called for her immediate dismissal for mocking a murder victim, USA Today reports. It's just disrespect! If this is not what @foxnews is all about we shall see!

The Friday segment also featured Ingraham and Arroyo laughing at how Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, flubbed the rapper's name at his memorial, calling him Nipsey Russell, the comedian whose name Hussle adapted growing up.

A petition with more than 40,000 signatures is being circulated for the objective of terminating Ingraham from Fox News over the comments she made.

Ingraham has also sparred with David Hogg, the Parkland survivor turned anti-gun activist.
