Washington D.C. – The Democrats have proposed a new tax policy that aims to increase the taxes on Canadian rapper and singer Tory Lanez. The policy comes in light of the rapper’s insensitive and disrespectful remarks towards the stock market.
During the stock market crash last year, Lanez tweeted, “Stock market today: Live updates: On Wednesday, the Fed skipped a rate hike, as expected, but indicated two more increases may be in store later this year? Ha! I don’t even know what half of those words mean, but I do know that I’ll be sipping champagne while y’all struggle.”
The tweet was met with significant criticism, with people calling out the rapper’s ignorance and lack of empathy towards those who were negatively impacted by the financial crisis.
In response to this, Democrats have proposed a tax hike on the rapper, with the aim of making him more accountable and responsible. “Tory Lanez’s disdain towards the stock market is unacceptable and shows a blatant disregard for the hardships that people go through during a market crash. We need to hold him accountable, and this tax policy is a step in the right direction,” said Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Tory Lanez responded to the news of the proposed tax hike in his typical style, tweeting, “Damn, why they gotta do me like that? Can’t a brother make a joke anymore? Y’all need to chill and lighten up. I’m still gonna sip champagne, though.”
Although the tax policy is yet to be passed, the proposal has already proved to be controversial, with several people criticizing it as a move towards silencing free speech. Regardless of the outcome, it’s clear that the impact of Tory Lanez’s tweet on the stock market will not be forgotten any time soon.
