JME Boy Better Know

Grime fans are not impressed with the newspaper.

JME has officially responded to The Daily Mail, after the newspaper published a scathing article criticising several tweets dating back to 2010. 

The article, which has sparked debate on social media, follows-up the Grime MC’s recent support of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, which involved the pair meeting up to discuss the urban community’s relationship with politics. 

The Daily Mail appeared to ‘respond’ by highlighting posts from JME’s Twitter account, which included controversial phrases like ‘bomb The White House’ and ‘f*ck the Queen’. 

The newspaper also dug up tweets that included a jokes about rape and Jewish people, suggesting that Corbyn would face huge embarrassment. 

However JME was quick to defend himself and praise those who had already defended him, adding some context to the tweets in question.

Sharing a screenshot of his timeline involving the tweets, the Boy Better Know MC revealed the wider context of his comments about The White House, The Queen and the rape joke – which was actually a quote from a Jimmy Carr sketch.
