Former First Lady Nancy Reagan passed away over the weekend at the age of 94. A moment of silence was held at this week’s Democratic Debate, Vanity Fair pointed out her bipartisan appeal of class and strength, and now there’s a petition on Change.org to have Fetty Wap—yes, that Fetty Wap; could you possibly know another?—play “Trap Queen” at her funeral on Friday.
Fetty Wap hasn’t yet commented on the petition, which you can read in full below.
She was married to the money and introduced America to the stove…
Nancy Reagan passed away on March 6th, 2016, leaving an unforgettable legacy as the First Lady of the United States. But beyond being the First Lady, Nancy Reagan holds the important legacy as being the most famous Trap Queen in American history.
While her husband, Ronald Reagan, was linking up with Papi to flood the streets with narcotics, Nancy was on TV telling kids to “Say No To Drugs.” Her infamous “anti-drug” phrase encouraged strict laws on drug possession that led to a school-to-prison pipeline we’re still dealing with now. Blacks and Latinos went to jail in droves for possessing drugs her husband gave them. It was an incredible sleight of hand that would make any wannabe Trap Queen hide in shame for her inability to be as diabolical as Nancy.
So, to commemorate her contribution to the Trap, we’d love to have Fetty Wap perform “Trap Queen” at Nancy’s funeral. To usher her to a better place…where she’s probably cooking pies with her baby.
Who is the mastermind behind this petition? It’s Playboy.com contributor David Dennis.
He says he wanted to make a statement on the Reagans and their influence on the school-to-prison pipeline and their role in destroying so many black communities. He decided to do the petition as a more satirical look at the Reagan legacy.
“I haven’t heard anything from Fetty or Nancy,” Dennis told us. “I’d just put ‘DD’ on the petition at first in case the CIA or someone wanted to kill me, so a lot of people are just now seeing who put the petition together.”
And how’s the reaction been?
“The weirdest thing that happened was a bunch of high school kids were in my mentions telling me how great the Reagans were,” Dennis said. “Which–what kind of high school kid feels passionate about 1980s presidents? That seems like an incredibly sad way to spend high school.”
