Mussolini granddaughter in spat with black rapper
Rome, Dec 2 (IANS/AKI) World War II fascist dictator Benito Mussolini’s granddaughter told a Ghanaian rapper to “clear off” from Italy on a live TV show after he defended the right of refugees to receive shelter in the country.
“Clear off, you’re here while there are Italians who don’t have a roof over their heads,” said Alessandra Mussolini.
She and 24-year-old rapper ‘Bel Figo’ (‘Trendy Guy’) were guests on the “From Your Viewpoint” chat show aired on former premier Silvio Berlusconi’s Rete 4 TV channel late Thursday.
“Though my songs, I try to defend myself,” said the rapper, responding to Mussolini’s outburst.
“The songs are provocations to people who don’t share my views,” added ‘Bel Figo’.
The 24-year-old web star has posted over 100 songs to his Youtube channel parodying Italy from an immigrant perspective.
“Those who don’t share your views? No one agrees your views,” fumed Mussolini.
“Someone who does what you deserves a good kicking,” she added.
The 53-year-old former actress and model is a member of the European Parliament for the conservative Forza Italia party founded by Berlusconi.
