Atlanta rapper 21 Savage‘s lawyer is big mad and has reason to be. New reports claim Sav’s legal representation believes ICE is trying to pressure his client into leaving the United States.
According to Sav’s attorney Charles H. Kuck, ICE has a series of flaws in its investigation and ultimate takedown of the hip-hop superstar.
Attorney Charles H. Kuck just delivered a blistering attack on the federal agency that arrested 21 Savage Sunday and is holding him for deportation proceedings. Kuck says his client actually applied for a U-Visa back in 2017 and the application is pending, and ICE has known about it yet took no action until this weekend. The attorney also takes aim at ICE for putting it out there that 21 Savage has prior criminal charges, suggesting he does not. Point of fact — Savage pled guilty to felony drug possession back in 2014, but that conviction was expunged last September. (TMZ)
Kuck also mentioned the fact Sav is not a threat and has built a family here.
And, the attorney goes on … “As a minor, his family overstayed their work visas, and he, like almost two million other children, was left without legal status through no fault of his own.” Kuck says his client has “U.S. citizen children” whom he supports and is eligible for relief from deportation. The attorney accuses ICE of trying to “unnecessarily punish him,” claiming the agency is trying “to intimidate him into giving up his right to fight to remain in the United States.” (TMZ)
On Monday, Louisiana rapper Boosie BadAzz ripped pop star Demi Lovato for co-signing Savage memes amid his crisis.
Lovato deleted her Twitter page last night (February 3) after catching massive backlash for appearing to laugh at Sav’s life-changing predicament.
News of 21 Savage’s arrest quickly spread over social media and subsequently became a meme. Lovato wrote on Twitter Sunday afternoon, “So far 21 savage memes have been my favorite part of the Super Bowl.” (E! Online)
