TV Boycott: 63 Percent of People Will Not Watch Shawty Lo’s “All My Babies’ Mamas”

63 Percent of Urban Daily Readers Said They Will Not Watch Shawty Lo's "All My Babies' Mamas".

.

Oxygen Network’s upcoming reality tv series starring Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo and 10 of his children’s mothers, is probably going to have a difficult time acquiring advertisers. “All My Babies’ Mamas” is a show about Shawty Lo’s chaotic life dealing with 10 women who gave birth to his 11 children. Announcement of the show’s 2013 unscheduled debut hit the web and immediately sparked outrage amongst prominent figures in the African American community.

Esteemed scholar and finance expert Dr. Boyce Watkins asked:  “What the h*ll is wrong with Oxygen?” in an op-ed blasting the upcoming show. “Commercialized hip-hop’s steady formula of excessive drug/a*****l consumption, promotion of gun violence, financial irresponsibility and s*xual promiscuity does a great job of keeping us on the psychological plantation,” he said. Sabrina Lamb, of New York, drafted a petition calling for the cancellation of the show’s premiere. With the petition’s subtitle reading “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH,” Lamb expresses concern for Shawty Lo’s 11 children stating: “As dysfunctional and v*****t as so-called reality shows are, could you ever imagine a one hour spectacle where 11 children are forced to witness their 10 unwed mothers clamor for financial support, emotional attention and s****l reward from Shawty-Lo, the apathetic ‘father’?”

It appears as if Lamb’s petition has acquired some steam, as more than 5,000 people have signed it and according to a poll conducted on TheUrbanDaily.com, 63% of their 2,453 poll respondents said they will not be tuning in to watch the show.

    Well, no one has to guess why society thinks Black women are tramps and worse. These women had babies on purpose for money, now to embarrass other Black women that make a statement of stupidity.

    The majority of Black women would not have gotten pregnant by this clown. The first two were dumb enough but the other 8 have lost all self-respect.

    Since 1964 there should be no woman having a child by ‘accident’, these babies may have low self-esteem; even more, low regards for their mothers.

      I hear you Joyce, the first baby should teach any woman its hard out there without any education. I wish I could start a organization for these young girls. start at age 10 and and up whom have not gotten pregnant yet.Teach them birth control is out there if they have to have s*x.
      These kids get these jobs at the burger king or something and they actually think they can take care of these babies. We need to teach them some pride. MOST of thesekids Mama’s had them when they was kid, so they think its alright for them! Its pitiful!

    Will every self-righteous ‘brother’s keeper’ here agree to financially enrich this extended family by extending money to them…should they all agree to NOT appear on the show? Didn’t think so…

    I can’t even imagine myself watching this show. There is no more positive tv shows to watch. I think it is a disgrace to watch a show about a rapper and his ten baby mommas. What are we putting in our childrens heads when they watch this mess. Black America wake up. This is a travisty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I won’t watch this garbage, but to refer to Boyce as an esteemed scholar, is equally as demeaning, and insulting as this show. Boyce, is nothing but a race hustler, and a stooge for the republican tea baggers.

    This depicts how ignorant folks live, and waste their talents. I expected this guy to have more about himself, rather than to impregnate so many gullible women.

    What’s the problem? I think those reality shows are somewhat scripted and the characters are designed to entertain by looking and acting stupid while making lots of money. Black people are judged too harshly when they compete in the money-making business. Leave them along. Let them make money too. If you don’t want to watch the show, then don’t. Besides, what prominent figures in the African American community? Why don’t you take a look at their spouses and see what you find. So I ask again, to what prominent figures in the African American community are you referring?

    The real question is what is wrong with the 37 percent looking forward to watching this mess.
