No Escape Plan: Xscape Drops Nene Leakes From Tour Following Rape “Joke”

mm

Published

I definitely saw this one coming.

If you haven’t heard by now, Nene Leakes was “attempting” her stand-up routine as the opening act for Xscape’s tour stop in Oakland last weekend.  The crowd was not here for the Georgia peach and quickly began heckling her.  Ms. Leakes did not react well to a particular heckler and responded with what she deemed to be a “joke”.  Let’s refresh your memory.

 

So NENE LEAKES comes to Oakland at the Paramount, gets BOO'd then tells woman in crowd "she hopes the Uber driver that picks her up RAPES her" WOW. This is a prime example as to why EVERYBODY is NOT a comedian. Um @theshaderoom @kyle.anfernee @theclosetratchet yal gon post this or nah? 💁🏾#neneleakes

“I hope you get raped by your Uber driver tonight”

Yeah, I didn’t find it funny either.  Apparently, neither did Xscape.  While Nene may have apologized to the group, they have decided to drop her from the remaining tour dates.  Per TMZ in a statement released this morning, the group was dismayed by her comments and had this to say:

“This tour is for and about our fans and we want to provide an entertaining and enjoyable experience for every single person who attends.”

The group emphasized their decision to stand by all female rape victims and are supporters of all women.  In slightly telling note, the also wished Nene the best as she “navigates this very difficult period.”

Does Xscape know something we don’t?

Possibly.  It appears that Nene can’t get it together these days.  From battling with Kim and Brielle Bierman over social media to wishing rape on audience members, she seems to be unraveling.

I know one thing.  She better get it together and quick.  You can be a “very rich bitch” all you want, but sexual assault is no laughing matter.  Just ask Harvey Weinstein.

 

 

How do you feel about Ms. Leake’s dismissal?  Do you agree with Xscape?

Rolling Stone magazine hit us with a trifecta of talent for their second annual, Women Shaping the Future issue, out March 3. 

On the cover, sweet-faced Normani, brash in your face Megan Thee Stallion and innocent, doe-eyed SZA are each clad in leather ensembles that match the unique persona’s we’ve come to love. 

SZA burst onto the scene in 2014 with her ep debut, Z. Since then, the singer/songwriter has been featured on chart-topping songs with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and Rihanna. 

Megan Thee Stallion grabbed our attention with her summer anthem, Hot Girl Summer, and has been giving us “Hot Girl” vibes all year long with no signs of slowing down.

As for Normani, formerly a member of Fifth Harmony, she’s given us plenty to celebrate as she embarked on her solo career. Just last year, the sultry vocalist collaborated with DJ Calvin Harris and released her first single, Motivation, along with a viral music video.

As we approach Women’s History Month, we’re excited to learn more about how each of these ladies plans to shape the future. 

According to Rolling Stone, “In addition to revealing, in-depth profiles of these three artists, the issue also contains exclusive interviews with Regina King, Stacey Abrams, Natasha Lyonne, and other prominent women in entertainment, sports, politics, and culture.”
