Obama slammed for fundraising with ‘pro-drug, anti-police’ NBA player who stars in controversial ‘Stop Snitching’ DVD

President Barack Obama has been slammed for  fundraising with a ‘pro-drug, anti-police’ activist who allegedly cavorts with  gangsters.

Obama is in New York City raising campaign  cash with ‘NBA Heroes’ — a selection of former and current basketball stars  including Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing and Alonzo Mourning.

But the all-star line up also includes New  York Knicks player Carmelo Anthony, who is currently seen in a YouTube video and  DVD that promotes drug use and threatens people who ‘snitch’ to police about  drug dealers and other criminals

The underground DVD, called ‘Stop Snitching’,  has popped up on the streets of Anthony’s home town of Baltimore in the past  week, selling for $10, according to The Denver  Channel.

The controversial production shows the  basketballer standing next to an alleged drug dealer laughing as the man talks  about life on the street and what happens to people who cooperate with police.

Later in the DVD, Anthony’s companion  explains that ‘snitches’ get ‘a hole in their head,’ according to The Washington  Free Beacon.

Anthony also confesses in the video that he  threw his Olympic bronze medal in a lake.

The DVD has clips of men stuffing wads  of  cash in their pockets, driving convertibles, smoking marijuana and  flashing  diamond-encrusted watches, and credits a special thanks to  ‘Melo’ at the end,  which is the 28-year-old’s nickname.

Anthony’s agent, Calvin Andrews, said the  sports star had no idea he would be in the video.

‘I don’t think he ever knew that this was  going to be on a DVD and, if he did, I don’t think he would ever get involved  with it or have any affiliation with it at all,’ Andrews told The Denver  Channel

But Anthony himself wasn’t fussed by his  on-screen appearance.

‘You watch music videos all day and see  that,’ he told the TV station. ‘You  could say the same thing if I was in a  music video. I’m not really  concerned about it. … I don’t hang with drug  dealers. I surround  myself with good people.’

The basketballer proudly tweeted a photograph  of himself and his partner on his way to Obama’s fundraising event, which will  raise around $3 million.

Meanwhile, the president was comparing the  presidential contest to the fourth quarter of a basketball game while in New  York today

Obama told a small group of donors gathered  at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center that the campaign is like a hoops contest  in the final minutes.

His team has the lead, Obama said, the other  side is coming on strong and, in his words, ‘they play a little  dirty.’

Obama also used basketball imagery to  describe his team as having foul trouble and some injuries but ‘one last run in  them.
