Praising Evil is Evil

Headlined at Drudge, NBC:

Known for being more of a brainy poet type than a thug or a gangster, Common seemed to be amused by the dust-up Tuesday, tweeting and retweeting the various news items, such as FOX News' description of him as a "vile rapper."

He also tweeted, "So apparently Sarah Palin and Fox News doesn't like me."

Two things: first, vile doesn't have to be about bustin' caps in asses and bitch slapping; vile can also be praising murderers and encouraging hatred of the police.

And second, a single person doesn't like him, people and organizations, plural, don't like him. Poets and actors are supposed to knows that.
