Instagram funny man Druski kept things (too?) light when doing an interview with an unsuspecting reporter from WPLG Local 10 News in Miami. 😅

While protesting against the wrongful death of George Floyd, Druski and his buddy, a rapper who goes by the name BenDaDonnn, were stopped for a quick chat for live TV.

"It's just upsetting me and my homeboy that we even got to be out here right now because of police brutality," Ben says at the beginning of the interview clip. Purposefully acting confused and uninformed, Druski then chimes in with a comment: "I was supposed to graduate, but the reason why I didn't, the police had put – What's the word? The apartheid."

After Druski reiterates that the police didn't allow him to graduate, Ben offers a serious response to the question of why they're protesting. "We feel like we shouldn't be oppressed because of police," he says. "We're just as equal as everybody else."

Though he didn't appear in the interview, Druski and Ben also marched alongside popular social influencer and animal rights activist Michael Holston, aka @therealtarzann.

It wasn't long before the highlight circulated on Twitter, receiving over a million views in just a few hours. Druski shared the clip to his more than 588,000 Instagram followers as well, earning thousands of likes.

However, many Twitter commenters shamed Druski for not taking the moment seriously enough given the circumstances, leading "Druski" to trend in the U.S. on Sunday night.

"I be laughin' at yo videos'nshit .. But don't get a platform and not Respect the moment shawty," said one person.

Prior to potentially losing fans, Druski made a guest appearance in Lil Yachty's video for "Split/Whole Time" last week.
