‘Shut the Hell Up!’: Roland Martin Calls Out O’Reilly for Slamming #BlackLivesMatter

roland billTVOne’s Roland Martin called out Bill O’Reilly on NewsOne Now today for his attacks this week on #BlackLivesMatter.

This week O’Reilly called the movement a “hate group” after the death of a Texas deputy that led the county sheriff to issue a warning about “dangerous” anti-cop rhetoric. He said he wants to put them out of business.

Martin devoted some time on his show today to discussing O’Reilly’s attacks, and ended by looking into the camera and calling him out.

He told O’Reilly maybe he should start talking about the issues that the group is trying to pay attention to, pointing to multiple examples of police brutality, including the shooting of John Crawford.

Martin said O’Reilly he should be talking about police brutality and police corruption and encouraging good cops to start speaking out against the bad ones, and “until you do that, shut the hell up!”

He challenged O’Reilly to have him on his show to debate the issue “any time, any day.”
