Conservative cutup Bryan Sharp appeared on Fox News with Laura Ingraham Wednesday night to talk about his viral Starbucks video. Sharp, also known as @HotepJesus on Twitter and YouTube, is the black man who filmed himself demanding free coffee at Starbucks, citing “reparations.”

Sharp told Ingraham why he did it: “I am sick and tired of liberals using black people and making us look like victims, making us look soft with their liberal dogma. It is disgusting!”

He added: “The other thing I hate about liberals is, if you’re a black man, as I am, in America, they will not hand you a microphone unless you follow the liberal narrative.”

Sharp said he had that in mind when he was out shopping with his family and saw a Starbucks. He said, “I bet if I go into Starbucks and I follow a liberal narrative, I’ll make the news — and voila! Here I am!”

Ingraham asked Sharp if he’s made a lot of enemies because of the video.

He answered: “You’re going to get enemies, and you have to learn how to use them. I have a chapter in my book that talks about about how to use enemies. And I know how to use them so I embrace the hate. I embrace it because it gets balanced out with love. But all the people that hate — they’re just brainwashed by liberals. That’s all it is — they’re afraid to think for themselves.”
