Was “Straight Outta Compton” Trolling Fox News During The Republican Debate?

Twitter seemed to think so.

1. An hour and a half into the debate, moderators asked a question about racial issues. Scott Walker was the only one given a chance to respond before Fox cut to commercial break.

2. Some viewers were disappointed.

5. AND THEN THESE FIVE BLACK MEN APPEARED ON OUR SCREENS.

6. That is some next-level trolling.

If whoever's running Straight Outta Compton's marketing plan paid for a movie ad in the next break I would stand up and cheer.
