Iggy Azalea “Trying To Kill Hip Hop,” ESPN Anchor Robert Flores Says

Iggy Azalea "Trying To Kill Hip Hop," ESPN Anchor Robert Flores Says

The rapper’s boyfriend and Los Angeles Laker Nick Young comes to her defense.

The newest person to criticize Iggy Azalea is Sports Center anchor Robert Flores. During a recent “What Did We Learn” segment, the reporter called out Azalea’s boyfriend and Los Angeles Lakers forward Nick Young, reports BroBible.

“Nick, while dolphins are trying to kill you, your girlfriend’s trying to kill Hip Hop,” Flores said. “Let’s call it even, OK?”

Young, who told reporters earlier this month of his fear of the sea creature, responded on Twitter to confront Flores and defend his girlfriend.

“@RoFloESPN you job is to talk about sports not what we and my chick got going on,” one of the posts reads.

Neither Azalea nor Flores have responded.

Young has also defended the Grand Hustle rapper against Snoop Dogg and Tyler, The Creator.
