Justin Bieber wants Fox News to fire its conservative host Laura Ingraham.

The singer's message came Thursday after Ingraham made comments about the rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was murdered earlier this month. During a segment about Nipsey's funeral on April 12, Ingraham started to laugh while talking about his life and Bieber wasn't having it.

"Laura Ingraham absolutely disgusting what you did on national television. How dare you laugh in the face of a person who has passed on. Doesn't matter who it is," Bieber wrote on Instagram. "But disrespecting someone's who was a pillar in the community and did right by people? Did you not think about the family who just lost a loved one and now have to see you mock him on national television It's absurd and you should be fired period."

As The Cut notes, Ingraham also confused Nipsey for rapper YG. After playing a clip of YG's song "FDT," which features Nipsey and takes aim at President Trump, the Fox News host says: "So ... the chorus it goes on and on. Is that related to the lowest unemployment ever basically for African-Americans?"

The Grammy-nominated rapper was shot and killed outside a clothing store he owned in Los Angeles on April 2. Bieber isn't the only celeb to call out Ingraham over her reactions. Rapper T.I. also took issue with the segment, calling it "disgusting" in an Instagram post. Jamie Foxx, The Game, Snoop Dogg and Meek Mill all said they'd like to see Ingraham off TV.
