Throwback Video: Cam’ron and Dame Dash Debate Bill O’Reilly [WATCH]
Bill O’Reilly is unemployed. On Wednesday (April 19), Fox News fired the conservative firebrand after allegations of him sexually harassing female colleagues at the network prompted activists to call for his dismissal and advertisers leaving his show. O’Reilly has worked at Fox News since 1996 and is known for making racist and inflammatory remarks on his popular show, The O’Reilly Factor.
In the wake of O’Reilly’s firing, we decided to take a look back at one of his many worst moments on his show. It’s no secret that O’Reilly is not a fan of rappers and hip-hop music. In the past, he has gone after Ludacris, Jay Z and his wife Beyonce for supposedly promoting immoral behavior with their music.
But back in 2003, O’Reilly invited then-Roc-A-Fella artist Cam’ron and label honcho Damon Dash on The O’Reilly Factor to discuss how rap music is harming young people.
During the segment, the Dipset leader got into a heated argument with Philadelphia school principal Salome Thomas-El who urged him to take responsibility with his lyrics in his songs.
O’Reilly, who was moderating the segment, jumped in and asked Cam if he believes that his music influences young kids. When the Harlem rapper responded, “No,” O'Reilly became flustered over his answer. When Dame interjected to offer his thoughts on the subject, O’Reilly grew even more frustrated. That’s when Cam gleefully taunted him with "You mad? You maaad."
Overall, Dame and Cam’ron wasn’t going to let Bill O’Reilly bully them on the show like his other guests. Watch the spectacle above.
