Bun B Gets Reassurance From Houston Police After Calling Out Officers For Racist Social Media Post

Houston, TX – Bun B used his platform to expose racism in the Houston Police Department and received a response from HPD for doing so. In an interview with TMZ, the UGK MC detailed what he’s learned from the department after putting one former cop and two current ficers on blast for a racist Facebook post.

“The ficer that originally posted this resigned about a week before this post went up,” he explained. “So, he was no longer a member HPD when this post went up. But the other two ficers, who are in the comment section, are still active Houston Police Department ficers right now. They work out the Westside Command Station in Houston.”

He added, “I’ve been told by the assistant police chief, deputy police chief, that they’re gonna be dealing with this expeditiously.”

Last week, Bun called attention to a racist post made by former HPD ficer David Nguyen on June 26. While Nguyen is no longer part the force, two other ficers liked and commented on it Facebook.

“Ok Officers #TeeTruong #VuongVu and #DavidNguyen…you think it’s funny comparing black people to monkeys?” Bun wrote on Instagram. “We know you work in Houston at the Westside Command Station. Let’s see what your commanders think about this. And the other Asians on this group chat in the comments? Keep that same energy. No apologies will do. Black people are tired being treated like animals!”

Art Acevedo, Houston’s Chief Police, issued a statement saying the department was aware the racist post on June 30. At the time, he noted an internal investigation was initiated to determine if any current ficers were involved.

The incident highlighted by Bun wasn’t the only example Houston police’s racism playing out on social media in June. A few weeks ago, another ficer named Robert Clasen retired prior to a disciplinary review hearing for fensive online remarks he made about Black people.
