There has been a lot of chatter up and down the interwebs about whether or not Ramsey has been getting the respect that he deserves for his heroic rescue of Amanda Berry, 27, which led to the rescues of Gina Dejesus, 23, Michelle Knight, 32, and Berry’s 6-year-old daughter.
As previously reported by NewsOne, the women were held in captivity for a decade in the home of former bus driver, Ariel Castro, 52. Some in mainstream media have attempted to vilify him, some class conscious Black people have criticized his appearance and some hipster White people have made him into a meme.
But at the heart of it all, most people are proud of him and find his now infamous interview endearing and uproariously funny.
See it below:
Epps, of course, had to put his spin on it, but made it clear that he had nothing but respect for Ramsey:
Salute to Charles Ramsey a true HERO. All respect but I am Mike Epps and you know I had to get ya! All love.
The result is pure comedic gold!
