Ice-T Slams Journalist For Saying Idris Elba Can't Play James Bond Because He's Black

The talk of the town is that Idris Elba should be the next James Bond in the upcoming action film. Although he suggested it should be a woman, most fans are down to have him. “Are we interested in having a Bond character other than being a male? It could be a woman—could be a black woman, could be a white woman,” he said. “Do something different with it. Why not?”

But according to English journalist Katie Hopkins, it shouldn't be Idris because he's black, and Ice-T isn't here for her opinion. “No Idris Elba, you cannot be James Bond. You will not be 007, no matter how many tweets you put out saying ‘I’m Elba, Idris Elba.’ It’s not because you’re a gentleman of color. It’s because James Bond isn’t. He’s written as an upper-class, arrogant white,” she said. “Must we perpetually crowbar-in gender and color in where it doesn’t fit?” 

The "I'm Your Pusher" rapper re-tweeted her interview saying, "This bitch sounds stupid..." Katie got word of the tweets, seeing as it's been re-tweeted over 14,000 times, and responded saying "Ice T my ass."

Bye, Katie.
