A man unloaded on a CNN reporter on live air on Monday night during a riot in Minneapolis, saying that the stuff that the media is doing is making the situation worse.

“Now you can see y’all be twisting up the story,” the man said to the CNN reporter.

“Alright, so tell me what you think about what’s going on,” the reporter responded.

“What I think about this, it’s all the press and all the extra s*** y’all do, makes this worse,” the man responded. “When people want to protest, they shouldn’t do it in front of a f***in’ police sta–, yeah, court house, s*** like that. You get what the f*** I’m saying? Y’all need to get up out of here with all that twisting that the media and s***.”

The man later dismissed the reporter’s comments that they were on live air, saying, “I don’t care if you’re live or not, get away from here with all that media s*** that y’all doing.”

Last year, Rapper Killer Mike slammed CNN for essentially the same reason, saying that the network fomented division and added the problem at hand as riots broke out across the country.

“I love CNN, I love Cartoon Network,” Killer Mike said. “But, I’d like to say to CNN right now, karma’s a mother, stop feeding fear and anger every day. Stop making people feel so fearful. Give them hope.”

“I’m glad they only took down a sign and defaced a building, and they’re not killing human beings like that policeman did,” Killer Mike continued. “I’m glad they only destroyed some brick and mortar and they didn’t rip a father from a son. They didn’t rip a son from a mother, like the policeman did.”

“After it burns, will we be left with char or will we rise like the phoenix out of the ashes like Atlanta has always done?” Killer Mike continued. “Will we use this as a moment to say that we will not do what other cities have done and, in fact, we will get better than we’ve been?”
