Touré falls for likely fake 'Jesus Christ is my nigga' video

Via the Christian Post, there are strong indications that the video is phony:

A link to the church’s website appears at the end of the rap. Although the news page on the site says the church shut down in 2004, a Whois search on DomainTools.com reveals that the domain name for the site was just created on Jan. 15 of this year.

Chris English, pastor of GracePoint Church in Dubuque, told The Christian Post via email that he has never heard of West Dubuque 2nd Church of Christ or its pastor.

The Daily Dot concurs:

quick search on the Google reveals that there’s no pastor preaching in Iowa under the name of Jim or James Colerick; there’s no Jim or James Colerick to be identified, period. (For reference, my mother’s pastor pops up as the first result when you search his name on Google.)

Use of any profanities aside, there’s a perpetuated use of the slang word “swag”—a word that once referred to promotional items but now refers to style—towards the end of the track that seems out of place. Why? Because that change in the word’s meaning didn’t occur until sometime after 2010, when Tyler, the Creator and his rap group Odd Future started screaming it everywhere it went and it became “the most used word in the whole fucking universe.” No chance a pastor in central Iowa would have known how to use that word correctly in 2004. It’s impossible. It’s downright impossible.

This isn’t the first time Touré got faked out by social media pranksters. Remember?

Alas, Touré is incapable of simply admitting he made an honest mistake. When his error was brought to his attention, he doubled down on his “bible thumper” slur and settled on a “fake but accurate” defense:
