Darius Rucker racist tweet: American musician Darius Rucker responded to a tweet saying “leave country to the white folk.”

Rucker, a former member in Hootie and the Blowfish and now a solo artist, said that “I’ll take my grand ole Opry membership and leave your racism.”

“Is this 2013 or 1919?” He asked.

Later, he said he had to go to bed. “This has been hilarious tonight,” he said. “If any hater thinks I care what u think. I don’t make music for u. So don’t listen.”
