Ludacris and Bill O’Reilly Kiss and Make Up
Way back in 2002, Bill O’Reilly — talking head and general Fox News rabble-rouser — started a feud with rapper/actor Ludacris when he took aim at his lyrics and hip-hop in general. ‘The O’Reilly Factor‘ host was relentless (and pretty much ignorant) in his criticism of Luda’s contribution to culture. It wasn’t just talk, either. O’Reilly’s attacks resulted in the rapper getting canned as a spokesperson for Pepsi, after the host called for a boycott of the soft drink. Well, it’s been eight years, but not much had changed until the other night when both parties ended up at the same event.
“The first thing I said to him was, ‘I want to meet the guy who has had so much to say about me, but knows absolutely nothing about me’,” explained Ludacris to RadarOnline. “I wanted to speak to him when I saw his name on the guest list. I looked at what table he was on and I walked my a– straight to that table.”
Luda dished on the grave look that washed over O’Reilly’s face as he approached. We’re guessing if there were some video footage of this moment, you’d have an instant YouTube classic on your hands. The rapper continued, “The conversation we had was confidential, however, let’s just say it was a good conversation and good came out of it.”
So, the O’Reilly beef is finally squashed. Maybe Cam’ron is next? Somehow we doubt that one.
