Ludacris tells GQ magazine he was miffed when he went on ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ to promote ‘Crash’ and got severely edited because Winfrey has a rule of not promoting rap or rappers. “She edited out a lot of my comments while keeping her own in,” Ludacris said. “Of course, it’s her show, but we were doing a show on racial discrimination, and she gave me a hard time as a rapper when I came on there as an actor. I don’t see why people like Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle, who I am huge fans of, it’s OK for them to go on ‘Oprah.’ They speak the same language as I do, but they do it through comedy, so I guess that’s acceptable.”
