After rapper Killer Mike appeared on NRA TV to discuss black gun ownership, MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid was one of many who criticized the choice. In an apparent attempt to fire back, Killer Mike commented on one of Reid's Instagram posts, calling her a hypocrite because of her apparent association with clothing retailer H&M. However, H&M did not stand for what Mike thought it stood for, and Reid responded with a clapback for the ages. On Monday's Desus & Mero, the hosts talked about Killer Mike's misguided comment and Joy-Ann Reid's award-worthy response.
