Breakfast Club radio host DJ Envy is facing down a backlash after comments he made in support of the police officer who shot and killed Ma’Khia Bryant last week.
Last Friday, the hosts struck up a conversation about the April 20 incident in Columbus, Ohio, where a police officer shot Ma’Khia Bryant who was lungeing with a knife toward another girl. And as far as DJ Envy is concerned, the police officer was in a no-win situation, had seconds to act, and his actions were justifiable.
“Every case is different,” DJ Envy said. “And in this case, if I pull up to a scene and see a girl chasing another girl about to stab a girl, my job as a police officer is to make sure that girl doesn’t get killed. And the law allows me to stop that killing or that stabbing by any means necessary. That’s what the law allows me to do, on both sides.”
