Kendrick Lamar‘s performance has been one of the highlights during last weekend’s BET Awards. It found him performing his new single “Alright” atop a vandalized police car with a giant American flag waving in the background. While the attending audience and the majority of the net applauded K. Dot’s energy, Fox News wasn’t feeling it. The Compton rapper was accused of calling out of police brutality on the panel show The Five last night, as host Geraldo Rivera claimed:

This is exactly the wrong message. And then to conflate what happened in the church in Charleston, South Carolina with these tragic incidents involving excessive use of force by cops is to equate that racist killer with these cops, it is so wrong, it is so counterproductive, it gives exactly the wrong the message.[...]
It doesn’t recognize that a city like Baltimore, where — remember Freddie Gray — they’ve had a homicide a day since Freddie Gray, no one’s protesting that. Baltimore, a tiny city, 7% the size of New York, has just as many murders as New York. You know, we’ve got to wake up at a certain point and understand what’s going on here.
