Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has repeatedly gone after rapper Snoop Dogg, saying that he “likes to carry around guns that can kill people” and should be in jail. On a recent interview with Dutch television, Snoop hit back, saying, “F*ck Bill O’Reilly.” Last night, O’Reilly responded: “Yes, like Calvin lives in the ghetto. Is a pool boy going to beat me up there, Snoopy? And of course, he’s welcome to come in here to the No Spin Zone, but we do have drug testing.” Watch it:

Digg It!

Transcript:

O’REILLY: Time now for “The Most Ridiculous Item of the Day”. Our pal Snoop Dogg, a.k.a. Calvin Broadus, is apparently angry with me because I pointed out that he’s been arrested 11 times.

In fact, the British government recently denied Calvin entry to that country. But the Netherlands welcomed him. And somehow, the conversation on Dutch TV got around to me.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Guys like Bill O’Reilly, who are…

CALVIN “SNOOP DOGG” BROADUS, RAP ARTIST: (expletive deleted) Bill O’Reilly. They don’t understand me. You know, they don’t understand how kids and his family just love Snoop Dogg. And he don’t really get it.

Instead of trying to hold an interview with him to better understand me, he’d rather try to bash me in the media. You know, saying when he can just basically have a conversation with me and get a one-on-one with me.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Would you go on his show? Would you go on his show?

BROADUS: Yes. But we got to do it in my neighborhood, though.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It has to be in the ghetto, though?

BROADUS: Yes. So I could kick his mother (expletive deleted) ass myself.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

O’REILLY: Yes, like Calvin lives in the ghetto. Is a pool boy going to beat me up there, Snoopy?

And of course, he’s welcome to come in here to the No Spin Zone, but we do have drug testing. To not have it would be ridiculous.

The ghetto.
