Rap star Xzibit acuses Rove Live audience of racism

In what looks like an honest misunderstanding, rap artist Xzibit cancelled a performance on the popular Australian comedy show, Rove Live, claiming the audience to be racist.

Xzibit was originally mean to give a longer performance, but was eventually cut down to just 43 seconds. According to the rapper's , a floor lackey told him:

"we only have 42 seconds for the entire thing, our demographics on our show wont allow 1 minute of rapping"

It's a bit of a stretch in this author's humble opinion. I would hazard a guess there are plenty of other music genres Rove's audience would also tire of quickly. Heavy Metal for example. Does that make them Heavy Metal racists?

Rove IS an ignorant racist. Also FAAAR from funny. Im far from an xibit fan either. Rove, Daryl Summers or John Blackman would do real well finding themselfs in a rural aboriginal area. Good luck sitting pretty smartasses..

Oh please Rove is far from racist he's very good friends with chef Geoff Ainsley who happens to be black he's also good mates with Ryan Shelton a Pakistani (i think) comedian that writes bit segments for him. He also quite regularly has stephen K amos on who is a well known black gay comedian.

Maybe you should do a little homework onesixty before making dumbass comments about people you know nothing about.

Maybe you should do some homework. Like checking out the "White Australia " Boardgame in the Australian national archives. Or how this moron mcmannus acted at high school.

Somebody may be friends or more likely aquiatances with somebody and still hold crital negetive opionions about thier race. What are you on about? I wont even bother explaining to a moron how people appear on a tv show, or why. Ill hint to the fact that part of the reason why ANYONE is on Rove is because its one of the only shows that exists on tv in that format here unfortunatly.

Watching rove is like reading a cheap magazine, bullshit media liason, repetitive boring guests, bad jokes bad skits, low quality all over. Peter hellier needs to get as far away before he stops being funny. Prob too late.

I could have a tombstone that reads "Here lies onesixty killed by rove and that other ditsy moron whos on the radio too .. and smoking"
