I'm willing to believe it was an attempt at humor.  And why not single out rap fans?  They're sure a lot more annoying than people who listen to Schubert, and their noise of choice has all the charm of a frat party belching contest. 

I concede that rap does have one good point.  It is an economic and lifestyle Godsend to lots of people.  There are thousands out there who can now become rich and famous in the music industry despite the fact they have absolutely no musical abilities.

I know that was meant as a joke, but I find its overtones and connotations
quite distressing. Yes, loud music (of any kind) can be very irritating and
distracting, especially when nearing a deadline. And the people who turn
the volume all the way up are very inconsiderate and rude. (I favor minimal
background noise, personally.) But singling out "rap" and calling the
people who listen to it "pests" and "vermin"--that's something else.
