Rapper Killer Mike, also known as Michael Render, was arrested at the Grammy Awards after winning three awards for his song “Scientists and Engineers.” His arrest was reportedly due to a physical altercation with a security guard. A Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson confirmed that Render was detained and handcuffed for the altercation. He was booked on charges of misdemeanor battery and has since been released.
Critics on social media noted that Render’s arrest came after he declined to endorse President Joe Biden’s re-election over Trump during an interview on Real Time With Bill Maher. However, suggestions that Render was arrested for political purposes have not been supported by any evidence. Some conservative influencers on social media questioned whether Render could apologise for the crime bill or pick a coalition of people affected by drug laws, street gangs, recidivism, and crime to advise him on how to fix federal prisons.
Several conservative commentators have speculated that Render’s arrest could be related to his sharp criticisms of Joe Biden and outspoken support of President Trump. However, Render has not stated that he is “pro-Trump” and has supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential runs in 2016 and 2020.
In conclusion, the arrest of rapper Killer Mike has sparked a conspiracy theory among supporters of former President Donald Trump, who has previously supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ presidential runs in 2016 and 2020.
