Her Milkshake Brings All the Cops to the (Jail)Yard

3/2/2007 2:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Singer Kelis was arrested early Friday morning in Miami Beach after screaming racial obscenities at two female police officers who were posing as prostitutes. Damn. She's bossy!

The officers were working an undercover operation in South Beach, when cops say Kelis started screaming racial slurs at the women. She continued screaming and rushed toward them, and had to be restrained by friends, a police report said. According to the report, Kelis' "actions caused people walking by to stop and form a crowd. The sidewalk was blocked by the disturbance, causing people to walk in the street and causing traffic to stop."

Kelis, the wife of rapper Nas, was charged with two misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and for resisting arrest.

A rep for Kelis had no comment.

First of all, I would like to state the obvious, which would be that a grown woman with pink hair, obviously isn't playing with a full deck. Second of all, what race were the female police officers? If TMZ is going to run a thread like this, they should definitely fill us in with the entire story.

Well, anyway she should be embarassed of her behavior, because if she would have been the victim of racism we would never hear the end of it. Another embarassment for blacks, and this is coming from a black man.

Who is she? To be quite frank, I don't care. But, the big question, why the heck TMZ is wasting space writing about her. Must have been a slow day for celebrity news/gossip.

awww. You guys sound like your little feelings are hurt. Here's an e-hug. In the meantime keep enjoying that white privilege of yours. (waits for the obligatory 'white folks are poor too' 'i;ve had it rougher than anyone' comments). White people have been the recipient of exceptional treatment for the last 400 years, NO! white people can't claim racism, they are in power. look at the listing of Presidents and the vast majority of CEO's in this country and prove it to me otherwise.

and next time the cops pass you by to arrest some black kid for "fitting the description" go home and thank god you're white before saying such ridiculous comments idiots.

p.s. she's nowhere near as famous as Michael richards dumbasses.
p.s. 2. you have no idea what racial group she was talking to, stop jumping to conclusions so your inner retardation doesn't show prematurely. I'm sure it'll show eventually but better late than sooner

OK, folks... Back up a sec... The cops were posing as HOOKERS. Being the concerned citizen she was trying to get the HOOKERS to leave the area by insulting them. DUH.

I read the same article and I did not come away with the understanding of the race of the officers. Please enlighten me as to whether these officers were white, black, hispanic, asian or whatever else. White people just automatically assume that the offended officers were white. Get informed first! BTW, I've never heard of this girl and don't really give a damn, but I thought that needed to be said. Also, she is a very pretty girl - she could lose the hair color though.

Kelis father was black and her mother part Puerto Rican and Chinese.

but I know some people feel that if you have at least one ounce of black blood in you, that cancels out any other part of a persons heritage.

Lenn K, you idiot she's not even a rapper. She sings r&b songs. Her boyfriend is the rapper, Nas. A)NO he was not arrested B)he makes many positive songs and C) is regarded as one of this generation's best writers. When you can do something besides posting nonsense on a website and contribute and inspire something, maybe people will take your comments seriously. Until then get involved constructively as a form of protest or quiet down with the complaints. You seem asinine, uneducated and laced with bigotry.

WOW, people are actually complaining about reverse-racism!?! Who would've thought? People, (white people) calm down!!! Get your facts straight before you start complaining about why it's not fair that a [black] girl yelled out racial obscenities. To whom you may ask? I heard the undercover officers were black, oops! It's so funny how people jump to conclusions and automatically assume she was racist against a white person. Take a class, learn about black culture besides the stereotypical nonsense you see on television, because it's not a representation of us. Stop being so quick to judge before receiving all the facts; become a critical thinker for God's sake! In this poorly written article, you where told the WHAT and WHERE but the article clearly omitted, the WHY and HOW. It's a amazing how the ignorant were almost immediate to respond, but in actuality it had nothing to do with the article but their own insecurities.

TROLL SMASHERS    

Okay with the DOUBLE STANDARD!
Someone hit on if she should apologize and meet with members of the community and all they seem to drag poor white people through when they say the same things blacks say to each other....

Answer, NO, she won't but she should, just out of spite whites, or hispanics (whatever group she threw the slurs at) should DEMAND she go through all the hell they took M. Richards through for what he said.

Way to go Kellis, NICE WAY TO REPRESENT CLASSY BLACK WOMEN. ( not )

She's no different than Kramer. If they were the same color they would be hanging out together. Screaming racial slurs is racist. She lost whatever moral high ground she "may" have had even if the cops were harassing her. Why would undercover cops be harassing her anyway. I would think the last thing they would want to do is call attention to themselves as cops. F*** her and Kramer. 6 of one half dozen of the other.

Kelis is mixed-race. Her father is black and her mother is 1/2-asian, 1/2 latina (chinese / puerto rican) Unless the officers were white, it's unlikely that she's a racist.
