An Atlanta rapper who headlined a rally at a church this week for Democratic Senate candidates Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock came under fire after several tweets denigrating women and making light of rape surfaced.

“If she say stop an u still hit it from da back is it an accident or rape lol,” BRS Kash, who recently released his new single, “Throat Baby,” tweeted in 2012, according to screenshots circulating on Twitter.

The rapper headlined a drive-in rally Monday at the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia and urged audience members to vote for Mr. Ossoff and Mr. Warnock in the Jan. 5 runoffs, which will determine which party will control the U.S. Senate.

During the event, Kash changed his sexually explicit lyrics for “Throat Baby” to “Vote Baby,” the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Nathan Brand, a spokesman from the National Republican Senatorial Committee, retweeted a screenshot of Kash’s offending tweet, adding, “This is who Georgia Democrats Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff had headline their event today. Will they denounce this disgusting individual?”



Political commentator Arthur Schwartz took several screenshots of BRS Kash’s tweets before they were deleted, he said.

“Whoop whoop goes the cop car,” the rapper tweeted in 2013, according to a screenshot. “#Police Excuse me sir do you have anything illegal in the car. #Me yea yo wife in my trunk dat #WhiteGirl Lmao.”

Neither Mr. Ossoff nor Mr. Warnock have publicly commented on the rapper’s tweets. BRS Kash deleted most of the comments without further explanation.
