Ice-T Fires Back After Making Insensitive Comment on Russell Armstrong's Death


The rapper was amazed that his tweet even made the headlines, saying that media should focus on real issues instead of his opinion about the man who committed suicide on Monday.

Rapper Ice-T made insensitive comment on Twitter about Russell Armstrong, the estranged husband of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Taylor Armstrong. On the same day the news that Russell had committed suicide, Ice-T wrote, "Bad joke.. but alotta those wives would make me consider it."

Russell was found dead on Monday, August 15, hanging in a bedroom at his home on Mulholland Drive, Los Angeles. Reports said that the businessman took his own life because of depression stemming from his impending divorce from Taylor and the decline in his business.

Soon after his tweet made the headlines, Ice-T slammed media for blowing it out of proportion. He tweeted, "The lack of people caring about REAL issues has caused the media to focus on dumb shit like TWITTER comments.@THR attempting to create drama." He linked THR's story which asks people's opinion about the rapper's first tweet about Russell.

At relatively the same time, Ice-T also slammed "Jersey Shore". He wrote, "A guy asked me my key to success & whats the difference between us. I said 'Did you see the last 3 episodes of Jersey Shore?' Yes 'I didn't'."

    This man knows what he is talking about. The media defends stupid people and attacks "issues", those being stupid shit like Ice says. But hey, we are trillions more in the hole and they don't jump on Obama's back or anything.

    are you kidding? the media is always criticizing Obama.... rightfully so. Who cares if you think the media should focus on "real issues"...The point is that Ice-T is revolting for writing that tweet. And if he thinks the media should stay out of it....why would he give it the time of day? Everyone should pray for Taylor and Kennedy during this horrible time in their lives. Think about THEM.
