Journalist and podcaster Tim Pool sat down with rapper R.A. the Rugged Man on Thursday to discuss racism and the show exploded with Pool calling him a “racist pr*ck” while the rapper yelled at him to stop screaming and insisted “I’m not that guy.”
“You’re a racist pr*ck. Here’s my hour-long documentary about the black struggle in Ferguson. Yeah, yeah, oh great… a hundred thousand dollar budget. James Baldwin interviews people on the ground to talk about what they’ve been through, and you have the nerve to come up to me and tell me my experiences don’t matter when I’m fighting the fight,” Pool angrily told R.A. during his TIMCAST podcast.
The rapper angrily shot back, “Stop screaming b*tch, stop screaming. First of all, talk, talk to me like I’m… cause I’m not that guy.”
As they talked over one another, Pool retorted, “Yeah, you are, you are that guy. You actually are dude. You are that guy.”
At which point, the rapper came unglued. He violently jumped out of his chair, slapping the microphone while yelling expletives at Pool.

“Calm down. You think…” Pool starts.
“I’m not that guy! You don’t disrespect me, b*tch!!” R.A. yelled.
“What did you do to me? Did you disrespect me?” Pool asked.
He went on to say, “I was nice to you, bro, I was being nice,” as the rapper growled and cursed at him.
“You raising your voice to me like I’m your son, b*tch?” R.A. snapped at him.
“You’re raising your voice to me? Bro, I said… I respected you. I appreciated you,” Pool continued.
“You wouldn’t shut the f*ck up and raising that voice sh*t,” R.A. continued ranting.
“I stopped when you told me to,” the host pointed out. “You said lower my voice, so I lowered my voice. I told you I respected you coming, it was a good show, Pool added.
Tim Pool would go on to later tweet, “Everybody sharing that one clip from last night but they don’t share the part where we apologize to each other and hug it out RA is a cool dude and a legend. We just got heated and we both felt bad about it.”
Rapper R.A. the Rugged Man also backed down and claimed all was good between the two of them: “Respect @timcast I was out of line last night. I have a lot of life sh-t going on right now and brought that bullsh*t energy to the show, I have to work on that. I was wrong. I got emotional and reacted like an idiot. Peace to @Lukewearechange and @sourpatchlyds.”

People on social media definitely had thoughts on the contentious exchange:
The Tim Pool stream was a perfect t illustration of the average leftist supporting things he can’t explain just because the media said it’s racist not to.
Willful ignorance is one thing, but when the willfully ignorant think they’re the smartest guys in the room, you get 2021.

Watched that clip of RA and Tim Pool….mannn RA is so racist it's nutty to see it in real time. The woke truly are the racists.

😂RA The Rugged Man should change his name to RA the LDE Man. What an uninformed jerk. His ignorance is cringy and yes, HE IS THAT GUY, programmed to the core.

Tim pool's guest tonight had a meltdown. Called tim a bitch multiple times. Flew out of his chair and slapped the microphone before going off on tim in a very threatening and unprofessional manner. This is typical behavior from the left when their positions are challenged.

RA the Rugged Man is that guy. The son of a rich man, obsessed with the Hip Hop lifestyle because it gives him something "Real" to hold on to. He uses Black people to make himself seem virtuous. Just like your typical leftist who uses us like props. Tim Pool has tons of patience

hey, um @RAtheRuggedMan how come you act like such a lil bitch on tim pools show? And before you come at me for being some Tim Pool fan, I don’t really watch the guy. I’m just wondering why you think it’s cool to roid out like a maniac over the tone of someone else’s voice. Sad.
