Republicans have Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock criticized the selection of a hip-hop artist who was the head of a campaign on Monday after a disturbing screenshot emerged from the rapper’s Twitter account.
BRS Kash, a 27-year-old rapper, urged the crowd at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia City to vote according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The rally was called a drive-in rally aimed at giving the youngest voters support for Ossoff and Warnock at the drop of a hat, and the two Democrats wanted to oust the state’s two Republican senators in the January 5 emergency.
The screenshot in question has an explicit language and appears to be a woman telling a man to stop his sexual progress.
Nathan Brand, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, tweeted again the screenshot and wrote: “This is who the Democrats in Georgia, Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, had their headline today. Will they expose this disgusting individual?”
Tia Mitchell, the reporter who wrote the article for the AJC, said she updated her story to reflect the Republican scream and that she did not know about the tweet.
Ossoff and Warnock did not immediately respond to the paper, nor did they respond to an email from Fox News for comment. BRS Kash did not respond to a request for comment from Fox News.

The rally included performances by FKA DRAM, JID, Tokoyo Jetz and was hosted by Reginae Carter. The newspaper reported that Carter is the daughter of rapper Lil Wayne, who made headlines when he posed for a photo with President Trump before the November election.

Warnock stands out for Senator Kelly Loeffler and Ossoff leads against David Perdue. The turnout is likely to play an important role, which is why candidates are working to excite voters as time goes on.

Nearly 2.1 million voters cast ballots, roughly in line with the November 3 general election. It is unclear how the Christmas holidays will affect the pace of the mood. Personal early voting can take place until December 31 in some provinces.
On Sunday night, President Trump tweeted that he would visit Georgia on January 4, before the expiration, for a rally in support of Perdue and Loeffler.
