As the host of Hip Hop Squares, DeRay has gotten pretty good at thinking on his feet, but when he’s confronted with Simone Shepherd and Klarity to get them a spot on the show, his lies are...totally unbelievable.
First he’s like:
“The truth is…I can’t get you on the show because I’m allergic.”
And then he just starts casually speaking French:
It’s not a lie if they can’t understand you, right?
Maybe flattery will work?
“Because y’all are way too expensive…”
When in doubt, play dead, I guess…
“I’m not even the host of Hip Hop Squares…I’ve been dead for ten years.”
Lying isn’t the best thing DeRay has ever done, but at least his lies aren’t hurting (or killing) anybody. We can’t say as much for Big Tobacco, who has lied to consumers for years. Here’s one thing that isn’t a lie: “[Big Tobacco] suppressed research and destroyed documents about the deadly health effects of smoking.”
