Desiigner — Race Not An Issue In Arrest … Says NYPD

Posted September 12, 2016 under Celebrity Justice


The NYPD is calling B.S. on Desiigner‘s legal team claiming he was targeted for being black … saying they arrested him because he committed a crime.

An NYPD official suggests to TMZ … it’s wrong to play the race card in a case like this because the man in the road rage incident who called 911 — claiming Desiigner pointed a gun at him — is Hispanic.

The official says, “There was a male Hispanic complainant who said he was menaced with a black firearm from individuals in the car. There was no targeting of him because he was black, NYPD arrested him because he committed a crime.”

The intimation is clear  … this is not cops favoring white over black … both parties in the alleged road rage incident were minorities, so the arrest was not racial.

Desiigner’s rep claims it’s a case of trying to keep a successful young black man down.
