Officer Responds to Kanye's 'Offensive' Comparison, Sparks Social Media Storm

After Kanye West compared his career as a rapper to that of a military or police officer, Officer David Oliver wrote an open letter to West that stated: "When the Taliban starts shooting at you– perhaps you could stand up and let the words flow... Check yourself before you wreck yourself."

Twitter and Facebook has since exploded with opinions on West's comparison and Oliver's response. New Day spoke with Oliver to ask how serious this statement is being taken within the military community. And should Kanye West issue an apology?

    this is one talentless brain-dead idiot. Who gives a rat's ass about some famous-only-to-himself loudmouth know-nothing fool? I served my country, this punk hasn't served anything.
