Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said remarks on "Saturday Night Live" by pop star Megan Thee Stallion that criticized his handling of a grand jury on the killing of Breonna Taylor were "disgusting."

"The fact that someone would get on national television and make disparaging comments about me because I'm simply trying to do my job is disgusting," Cameron said during an interview on "Fox & Friends."

The rapper played audio of Taylor's aunt, Bianca Austin, reading aloud a letter critical of Cameron's handling of the case during a performance of her hit song "Savage."

She later told the audience: "We need to protect our Black women and love our Black women, because at the end of the day, we need our Black women."

Cameron said he agreed with the remarks about protecting Black women, but took offense with her overall actions.

Taylor was killed by police officers after they entered the apartment she shared with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend, who said he thought the police were intruders, fired on them and they fired back, killing Taylor.  

None of the officers were charged with Taylor's death, as the grand jury determined they had acted legally. One officer faces charges of wanton endangerment for shots he fired that entered an adjacent apartment.

Cameron also addressed the recent call by Taylor's family for a new special prosecutor to reopen the case.

The attorney general accused Ben Crump, the attorney representing Taylor's family, of working in his own self-interest, saying he "creates chaos in a community, misrepresents the facts, and then he leaves with his money and then asks the community to pick up the pieces."

When pressed by Fox News's Steve Doocy on the lack of charges, Cameron stated that the officers involved were justified in their actions.

"No one disputes that this is a tragedy, but sometimes our criminal justice system, our criminal law is inadequate to respond to a tragedy. That is the case here," said Cameron, echoing remarks he made initially after the grand jury decision. 

He went on to mention that the FBI investigation into the case is still ongoing. 

Recordings of the grand jury were released Friday after a judge ordered their release. Cameron had initially said the recordings would not be released due to the secretive nature of grand juries, but one of the jurors filed a motion to have them released saying the public had a right to know what was on the recordings.
