Notorious conspiracy theorist and President Donald Trump’s vicious supporter, Alex Jones, really wasn't happy with Jennifer Lopez’s remarkable speech at the 2017 Grammy Awards.
In her moving speech, the singer emphasized on how music inspires lives and how the Americans should voice their opinions about everything that matters to them.
“It is about the music, the words and the voices. How they move us, inspire us, and touch all our lives. At this particular moment in history, our voices are needed more than ever,” she said.
Quoting author Toni Morrison, Lopez added, “This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self pity, no need for silence, and no room for fear. We do language. That is how civilizations heal.”
Her statement touched everyone — well, everyone except Jones, who hated it so much he called the superstar a “tart” from the “failing music industry.”
“Stop, stop, stop. Back it up, back it up. Who is this? Who is this tart? I forget who she is. J-Lo.,” Jones said during his “Info Wars” segment. “So again, giant corporate people making hundreds of millions of dollars, up there with their perfect manicured everything. All the leftists from these big foundations, where 1 or 2 percent of the money goes to the Africans.”
He accused the big foundations, namely the Bill and Hillary Clinton's and Oprah Winfrey’s, of robbing money in the name of poor people.
“And they hoard the money for themselves, like you know, the Clintons and Oprah, and all the rest of it. And she’s up there,” he continued his incoherent rant. “‘Oh and we just gotta do something, it’s we’re so oppressed, it’s all so horrible, what will’ — yes, let’s critique this — ‘it’s so terrible, what are we, it’s so [unintelligible] and Trump wants to build factories for poor people.’”
In his hate spree, Jones completely lost his mind.
“He doesn’t want to bring people in from Somalia where women are sold on slave box,” he said. “Why don’t you go to Somalia for five minutes, lady, you’ll be gang raped so fast it’ll make your head spin.”
The social media reaction to Jones’ horrid comment was enormous.

And I don't feel bad at all- especially after he wished Jennifer Lopez to get gang-raped
