Al Sharpton Botches Spelling Of Famous Aretha Franklin Song R-E-S-P-E-C-T. The Song's Lyrics Literally Spell It Out.
It's pretty clear that all the Queen of Soul, the late Aretha Franklin, was asking for was a little respect. And misspelling her iconic lyrics is probably not exactly what kids these day mean when they say "put some rucpseck on her name."
According to The Daily Mail, Reverend Al Sharpton, host of MSNBC’s "PoliticsNation," was trying to make a point about an anamilistic slur recently used against a person of color by tying his zinger into the recent death of Aretha Franklin. Sharpton's clap back should have been excellently on point, had he managed to spell the lyrics to the famous 1967 song correctly.
"So in the words of my late friend Aretha Franklin, show some R-E-S-P-I-C-T, and the next time you get a black woman and a beagle confused, remember this: I got you," Sharpton sAaid.
Well, hopefully he was able to brush past it with #NoRagerts.
