This Friday New York City Mayor Eric Adams made the headlines as he talked about banning drill rap music off social media.
While addressing the media Eric said “I had no idea what drill rapping was, but I called my son and he sent me some videos and it is alarming” said the Mayor. He continued explaining his plans to ban Drill Rap from social media “We will sit down with social media companies and state that you have a civic and corporate responsibility. You know we pulled Trump off Twitter because of what he was spewing. Yet we are allowing the music and displaying of guns, the violence we are allowing it to stay on these sites. We are alarmed by the use of social media to over proliferate this violence in communities”
According to a report by NY Post, Mayor plans on meeting with civil rights activists and NAACP president among others about his crime-fighting agenda.
“We pulled Trump off Twitter … yet we are allowing music displaying of guns, violence.”
