Rapper Dave calls out "racist" Boris Johnson in BRIT Awards performance

Rapper Dave called out "racist" UK prime minister Boris Johnson during his BRIT Awards performance.

Dave was performing his track 'Black', adding lyrics to the song which referred to the PM as a "real racist".

Dave rapped: "It is racist whether or not it feels racist. The truth is our prime minister's a real racist. They say, you should be grateful we're the least racist. I say, the least racist is still racist."

Dave also called out the media for its treatment of Meghan Markle and the government's handing of the Grenfell Tower fire.
