Daniel Cameron has taken offense to Megan Thee Stallion’s Saturday Night Live performance after she blasted the Kentucky Attorney General for his handling of the Breonna Taylor case.

Megan, 25, took exception to Cameron’s conduct after a grand jury he convened decided last month not to press any charges against the officers involved in her death. Cameron defended them, claiming their actions that night were justified.

As theGrio reported, the rap star made her SNL debut over the weekend where she performed the remix of her smash hit “Savage” featuring Beyoncé. Megan and her dancers wore black and white zebra print outfits, dancing in front of a backdrop that read “Protect Black Women.”

A voiceover of Malcolm X making his famous statement that “Black women are the most disrespected, unprotected, neglected person in America,” played, then segued into the voice of activist Tamika Mallory, a co-founder of the Women’s March who had strong words for Cameron in a fiery speech after the grand jury decision came down.

“Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout Negroes that sold our people into slavery,” Mallory’s voiceover said as the words appeared on the screen behind Megan and she and her dancers raised their fists in the air to punctuate the moment.

Cameron responded to the insinuation during an appearance on Tuesday’s Fox & Friends.

“I agree that we need to love and protect our Black women… but the fact that someone would get on national television and make disparaging comments about me because I’m trying to do my job is disgusting. But it’s not the first time we see this, and it certainly won’t be the last time we see this,” Cameron said.  

Cameron also claimed that he was being targeted because he’s a Black Republican.

“Because I stand up for truth and justice as opposed to giving in to a mob mentality, and those are the sorts of things that will be hurled at me in this job.”

He went on to accuse Megan Thee Stallion and other celebrities of not being tolerant as they preach.

“The fact that a celebrity that I never met before wants to make those sorts of statements, they don’t hurt me but what it does is it expose the type of intolerance, and the hypocrisy because obviously, people preach about being intolerant,” he continued. “You hear a lot of that from the left about being tolerant. But what you saw there is inconsistent with tolerance. In fact, it’s her espousing intolerance because I’ve decided to stand up for truth and justice.”

The attorney general also addressed an open letter from the lawyer’s representing Taylor’s family. They are requesting a new special prosecutor because Cameron was not “unbiased” in his behavior.

“This is the Ben Crump model. He goes into a city, created a narrative, cherry-picks facts to prove that narrative, creates chaos in a community, misrepresents the facts and then he leaves with his money and asks the community to pick up the pieces,” Cameron said. “It is terribly irresponsible on his part to push such narratives, such falsehoods. As the attorney general, I don’t have the luxury of falsehoods – I have the responsibility to the truth, the law and justice.”
