Watch Cousin Angela Rye teach conservative commentator that what you won’t do is come for her boyfriend Common
What you won’t do is come for Angela Rye’s man and think she won’t clap back and put you in your place.
On Monday CNN political commentator, Angela Rye, shot down contributor Alice Stewart in epic fashion.
Stewart made comments supporting the NRA and criticized Rye’s boyfriend Common who sang “Stand Up for Something” with Audra Day at the 90th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, according to the Atlanta Black Star.
The National Rifle Association released a PSA touting its support of the military, fallen soldiers and their families after Common called for the organization to stand down and get out of the way of the people fighting for legislative changes to gun policies.
Stewart applauded the NRA’s move but that didn’t sit well with Angela Rye.
“These folks are wrong as two left shoes!” Rye exclaimed on CNN Tonight. “They are wrong. This isn’t about the NRA standing up to protect people who are in Hollywood. This isn’t about people who are out of touch.
“Kids have died!” she Angela Rye challenged. “The NRA is out of touch. They are in God’s way. Common had it right. We didn’t need anybody to tell us that. We don’t need you on here telling us how amazing the NRA is—they are not! They’re terrible, they are terrible. … It’s high time that there is an organization that competes with them to say, ‘We are not going to allow you to buy public service. That is not for sale.’ … I just can’t do the NRA PSA tonight.”
Unfortunately Stewart didn’t catch that clue to stand down and tried to claim that Hollywood is hypocritical.
And that, ladies and gentlemen when Rye went all in.

“Do you know where these people are from?” she exclaims. “[Common] is from Chicago! “Like, stop! Just stop! Like, Alice, I like you as a person, but this is crazy! Stop!”
On Instagram, Rye’s legion of supporters backed her blow up.
“GO INNNNNNN,” someone wrote.
“Alice’s comment or the blow about Common was uncalled for @angelaryekeep speaking out my sister!” another said. “She has drunk the cool aide of double mindedness, unstable in all her ways. Tossed to and fro no foundation no anchor!!!!! Shameful! Shameful!”
“Speak Sister Angela!!!! @angelarye,” said another follower.
Common calls out the NRA
On Sunday, Common performed “Stand Up for Something,” from Marshall, an original song that he and Andra Day created with Diane Warren. And during the performance, Common called out the NRA and took jabs at the ongoing immigration debate.
“On Oscar night, this is the dream. We tell a land where dreamers live and freedom dwells, immigrants get the benefits. We put up monuments for the feminists, tell the NRA they in God’s way,” Common rapped.
Common was joined on stage by these activists, according to the New York Daily News: Alice Brown Otter (Standing Rock Youth Council), Bana Alabed (author and Syrian refugee), Bryan Stevenson (Equal Justice Initiative), Cecile Richards (Planned Parenthood Action Fund), Dolores Huerta (Dolores Huerta Foundation, United Farm Workers of America), Janet Mock (#GirlsLikeUs), José Andrés (ThinkFoodGroup), Nicole Hockley (Sandy Hook Promise), Patrisse Cullors (Black Lives Matter) and Tarana Burke (Me Too).
“Much love to all the heroes that joined Andra Day + I on stage,” Common tweeted after the performance.
While Common didn’t win the Oscar that night for best original song, he won millions of supporters who believe the NRA are on the wrong side of the gun violence conversation.
“I feel like I have a lot more work to do… I feel like I have to be more intelligent with the work and strategize more,” the rapper said while attending the Root 100 gala where Rye was being honored on Thursday.
“I have to listen more and go out and do more work. It is no time for sitting back, now. This is the time to stand up, more than anything.”
When it comes to the issue closest to his heart Common says, “I am from Chicago… there is so much violence going on.”
The couple let the world know they were dating to Page Six TV’s Bevy Smith in October.
