Earlier this year, Geraldo Rivera made his disdain for Hip Hop known.

The Fox News personality told Huffington Post Live "Hip-hop has done more damage to black and brown people than racism in the last 10 years," and then went on to talk about saggy pants, tats and the bad example the rapper lifestyle sets for underprivileged kids.

Geraldo was at again after the BET Awards, and this time he named names. But instead of going after some trap rapper, he set his sights on Kendrick Lamar.

Speaking on The Five, Geraldo criticized K.Dot's BET performance of his track 'Alright', which featured two vandalized cop cars and a large American flag.

"This is why I say that Hip Hop has done more damage to young African Americans than racism in recent years," Geraldo said on The Five. "This is exactly the wrong message."

The 71-year old also called out the 'Alright' lyrics "We hate po-po / Wanna kill us dead in the street for sure" as counterproductive.

Check out the segment below. What do you think of Geraldo's hot take?
