Uncle Snoop Get Your Apology to Ari Lennox Ready

Apparently, everyone’s favorite uncle likes apologizing. Fresh off of his apology tour for his controversial comments towards broadcast journalists Gayle King,  Snoop Dogg decided to comment on Ari Lennox’s Instagram live to instruct her to “grow your own hair.”

Yesterday, the Dreamville songbird took to Instagram Live in true Ari fashion to document her trying on a new lace front wig.  Not known for wearing wigs, she struggled with figuring out how much lace to cut and securing the hair as she entertained her followers with hilarious gestures and commentary.  

Eventually, a snippet of the video ended up on The Shade Room for everyone’s viewing pleasure.  

Moments later, Snoop was unnecessarily commenting under the video.

In no time, women were coming to Ari’s defense, reminding the legendary rapper that his wife and daughter are no strangers to wigs. 

You’d think men would know to leave their opinions to themselves when it comes to women’s hair, especially black women, but clearly, Uncle Snoop forgot to read that particular memo. 

Once Ari caught wind of Snoop’s comments, she delivered a lovely little shade tree, posting a photo of Snoop wearing a blonde wig with the caption, “Uncle I just…I just thought we had an understanding….”

Following the backlash that he’s currently receiving, I can already envision the apology that’s sure to follow.  Perhaps someone should remind Uncle Snoop that the best apology is changed behavior…

Boosie Badazz Has Been Expelled From Instagram University

Boosie’s account has been deleted and our boy is not happy about it at all.

Look, the feminist scholar in me is rejoicing. The pop culture lover, though, knows that Boosie has contributed a lot to inetrnet culture. I’ll remind you, dear reader, that Instagram Lives as a form of Black entertainment were popularized by him and people like Yung Miama and Santana. That said, the methods he used are likely the reason he was booted from Instagram. He gained his InstaFame from his NSFW lives where he had women dance and perform sex acts on screen. He also is notorious for having allegedly paid for someone to sexually assault his underaged son. So, we’re not going to pay him too much respect, but his meltdown is undoubtedly hilarious.

LeToya Luckett’s Husband, Tommicus Walker, Speaks Out On Alleged Affair

mm

Published

on

LeToya Luckett’s husband hasn’t admitted to cheating on his wife, but… it doesn’t look good. Let’s get into it.

This past weekend, LeToya Luckett had a wonderful baby shower. No, Beyoncé didn’t show up to this one, but something big did happen. A woman, supposedly an Instagram model, posted a series of videos to Twitter which she claimed were of herself and Tommicus Walker, LeToya’s husband. Yes, they were of an adult nature. No, we were not able to find the videos and we wouldn’t be able to post them if we could. The point is, LeToya, who is pregnant with her second child, is now having to deal with all of this.

At first, knowing her condition, we held off on reporting on the news. After all, there wasn’t much to go on. But, today, Tommicus has spoken out:

Now, my grandmother once told me, “Men don’t start praying until it’s too late for God them.” I’m not saying that her did this, but I am saying that he isn’t being clear about what God needs to “fix”

ABC Finally Releases ‘Black-ish’ Episode That Was Shelved 2 Years Ago

mm

Published

on

The recent uprisings have made clear that Black people aren’t just looking to name their issues, they want sustainable change. I reported on the reactions to Kamala Harris’ recent good-fortune. People are realizing that, even if you check off all of the “representation” boxes, you’ll still have to actively push back on the ways in which a person may have caused harm. The problem is that racists are going to take that opportunity to attack the most vulnerable of us. The same can be said of Black-ish, especially the recently released episode, “Please, Baby, Please.”

Kenya Barris is annoying. Everything he does finds a way to be annoying to me. He’s not a good writer. His shows are not written to be insightful, smart, not even bingeable. But how is that true if the ratings are always high? Well… White people.

Black-ish, and all of its Fool-ish spin offs, are written like after school specials. It’s a universe of poorly-scripted Blackness. It puts it’s characters in these ham-fisted situations, exaggerates their personalities, and then uses these personalities to make a “point”. Most of the Black people I talked to, some whose lives were word-for-word relayed on the screen, kind of liked the novelty of the show in the beginning, but lost interest after a while. That’s likely because they weren’t getting anything out of the show’s messages. These “points” were our lives and we already knew they existed. But White people didn’t. The same can be said of Kamala.

Kamala Harris is the kind of person that White people have never really seen. They think of us as unintelligent, under motivated, and incapable. I don’t really give a fuck, but the White people do. They are surprised, some excited and others appalled, to find that we’re somehow not all they thought we were. So Black-ish and Kamala is something new for them to explore. And watching this latest episode has made it clear that Kenya Barris understands this.

On the flip side, the Whites who are offended by our very existence put us in a moral dilemma. Either we let members of our community be publicly attacked or we step out and defend people and television shows that are harmful. That was the case with this episode. ABC pulled it from the line-up and we all jumped to its defense. In watching the episode, I feel conflicted about my old defensive tweets. Of course I couldn’t have known, but this episode does nothing for Black people. It even leaves room for people to be against Colin Kaepernick and it makes “White pride” seem like a legitimate conversation. Shouts to Yung Miami cus ion like det. The fact is, though, it wasn’t written for me. It was written for White people who actually do see these as quandaries. They need to be taught these things and need answers to these questions. And Kamala makes them feel good about themselves.

The point of the matter, here is that we’re going to be drowning in moments like this. These moments in pop culture and politics demand some critical thinking skills. But they aren’t really for us. They’re for White people. So keep marching, signing petitions, doing what needs to be done to have your voice heard, because it’s your voice that matters. Not the voices that the media and politicians allow to be heard.
