"All My Babies' Mamas" Reality Show is Receiving Negative Attention and is Being Boycotted

Oxygen Media, Electus and DiGa Vision: Cancel Shawty Lo's "All My Babies' Mamas," a show that stereotypes and demeans black children, mothers and dads!
So it looks as if Shawty Lo's reality show All My Babies' Mamas is catching a lot of slack... this is no surprise.

Thousands of people are protesting the new show being launched on Oxygen TV which is centered around Atlanta rapper Shawty Lo, his ten children, all of the mothers to his children as well as his new 19-year-old girlfriend.

Oh my!

There was a video that leaked showing a preview of the show and the video has now been removed. There is also an online petition circulating the web which is picking up a lot of attention and a lot of signatures.

The petitions creator, Sabrina Lamb said:

"By pushing these degrading images, your company seeks to profit from the humiliation of girls and women and the blatant stereotyping of African-Americans. We think Oxygen and the show’s creators and producers have gone too far and if this show is aired, we will, without hesitation, boycott any and all companies that advertise during this minstrel show,” she wrote.

Other websites like The Root blasted the show in their article entitled "Shawty Lo and His 10 Baby Mamas Are Not Black America."

All My Babies’ Mamas” was created by Liz Gateley and Tony DiSanto of DiGa Vision. This duo is the creative force behind hit shows like TRL, Run’s House, Nick Cannon Presents Wild ‘N Out and more.

All My Babies’ Mamas is slated to debut in the Spring of 2013.
