Fox’s Juan Williams Rips Straight Outta Compton: Isn’t It Celebrating ‘Thuggish’ Behavior?

juan williamsDuring a segment on #BlackLivesMatter today, Fox News’ Juan Williams took some shots at the movie Straight Outta Compton for glorifying “thuggish” behavior.

The new film, released just this past weekend, tells the story of the hip hop group N.W.A. and it took the top spot at the box office. Ben Carson took the movie to task in an op-ed yesterday for being emblematic of how Hollywood “lines its pockets by glamorizing a life where black men are thugs and our women are trash.”

Williams agreed today, saying on The Five that many people are pointing to how it’s glorifying “thuggish violent behavior” and even “misogynistic” behavior.

And he even said, “It plays to white people who think, ‘Oh, that’s the way they all are.”
