The BOYCOTT Of Evelyn Lozada & The "Basketball Wives" Is ON!

Folks are absolutely fed up with the utter foolywangery that is VH1's "Basketball Wives."  It only took 4 seasons for that to happen.  Yet and still, a petition has popped up to boycott cast member Evelyn Lozada's new spinoff show....and Star Jones is gathering up support of powerful women to get the show and its often embarrassing antics stopped.

 

Deets inside...

Evelyn and her assistant Nia Crooks ganging up on co-star Jennifer Williams this season seems to have been the straw that broke the slaphappy camel's back.  Because folks are more up in arms than ever at the antics of the grown women on this show.  From jumping on tables just to get a lick in on another female to throwing glass in the face of another to may-jah curse-your-ass-out arguments, it's a lot going on "Basketball Wives" these days.

An excerpt from an online petition that is now circulating (check it out in full HERE) reads:

“Evelyn Lozada is a bully. The violence on ‘Basketball Wives’ is horrible and disgraceful.  This is not a hate petition against Eveyln Lozada. We simply will not support violence. It hurts to see violence amongst women on television for entertainment purposes. It is not OK for women to hit each other on TV.

Just about every altercation and argument on the show has involved Evelyn in some way, shape or form. From the yelling match on the season 4 premier against her former bestie, Jen, to the table climbing and hair pulling in the last couple of episodes, the woman has a problem for reals."

Ha!  The petition also asks viewers to call and write Viacom in order to stop the release of "Ev & Ocho," Evelyn's spinoff show with fiance Chad OchoCinco.

Meanwhile, former "The View" co-host Star Jones went on a twitter rant reading these chicks.  Which we assume would include her ex-hubby, Al Reynolds, who appeared on several episodes as the girls' bestie.  *eyebrow raised*

She popped off this week saying:

“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH."

“About to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media.”

She continued:

"And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn't have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS! You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity.

…little black girls deserve more than what we're giving! It sickens me @lov3lylina85 when young sis think that behavior is acceptable. U can't get a REAL JOB acting like an animal."

So...who's getting their virtual picket signs ready for the fight?  Any takers?

Was anyone even planning on

Was anyone even planning on watching her show? I remember on season 1 her and Jennifer were super boring. Royce was the one who got it cracking on the show when she entered that dance contest and all the blogs went crazy. She is the only real quality cast member because she's the only one who keeps it real. Suzie is irrelevant and Tami is friends with Evelyn???? The thing that makes me mad is how shaunie just sits there like oh well let them fight I'm getting paid anyway. I would be embarrassed to see my friends acting like some of these women do. The thing that made me laugh is i remembered that interview she did saying how the l.a. Cast had "some trash" sprinkled in it and she had nothing to do with the casting. Hmm smh.

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Please someone in power boycott this foolery! We want good reality! Not a reality for a grown woman almost 40 yrs old (Evelyn Lozado) figting, cussing, throwing bottles and climbing over tables in every episode. For Shaunie oneal you need to be ashame of yourself for supporting her actions! I wonder if you are raising your little girls to think this kind of behavior is ok. Please Shaunie! stop selling your sould to the devil, just for a paycheck! I will not be supporting anymore of your projects at all!

Maybe the author of the petition should learn to write before she puts herself out to the public. Way, shape or form was bad enough, but the for reals took the cake. She's just as ignorant as them. Even before you mentioned Stars silly rant I was thinking about the multitude of reality shows that don't star black women where there are even more fights that are allowed to get even more physical. It's a reality show problem, not a black problem. I gotta side with the white folks and say chill with the race card why don't ya?

All you birds promoting this

All you birds promoting this show should be ashamed! You basically saying its okay for us to be portrayed a bitter, broke, catty, bitches smh. I hate this show, know of these hoes are wives and for good damn reason. I'm not signing the petition because I just choose not to watch the show. But Star Jones is right. These women are a disgrace. Name one black woman who is displayed as a peace role model in the medius besides The First Lady and Oprah.... Don't worry I'll wait....

I stopped watching BBW when

I stopped watching BBW when the fights kicked into high gear and overshadowed everything else. Fortunately La La Anthony and T.I. and Tiny's show - to name a couple - do show positive images of Black women and Black families. I just find it curious that Star is targeting Evelyn rather than Bad Girls Club for this boycott. The fighting, drunkeness, promiscuity, and other craziness on that show is WAY over the top and always includes young women of color.

I will not sign it. I think

I will not sign it. I think this is stupid. When Evelyn leaves the show, and the drama ceases, the show will really become lame. Jen doesn't carry any weight on this show and if she didn't come on the show anymore she would not be missed. This show is not about life lessons. It's purely entertainment. Who cares if Star Jones signed a petition! Does this mean Star Jones watches the show? Or maybe only the episodes with Al in it?! This is stupid...don't like the show...simply change the channel.

I think the show is an embarrassment. But I don't support censorship in ANYWAY. Just because certain ppl, don't like certain things, they aren't in a position to make a decision for everyone else. Everybody has a choice. That's what freedom is about, if you don't like the show, simple...don't watch it. I don't. But to put all the people out of work that are behind the scenes isn't really fair. Again if you don't like it....don't watch it. It'll be gone before you know it. And to really keep a hunit, most ppl are signing the petition because they don't like the women ON the show, like they know them personally, and this is just an opprotunity to get back at THEM. But as long as the show draws ratings that VH-1 can show to potential advertisers that show at going anywhere.

stop defending bullshit with the lame ass claim that 'other shows do it so what's the big deal' defense...it's weak. just because others do it and it's been accepted before doesn't make the shit right. at some point, sane people know to say 'enough is enough'...period...it's called growth and maturity. there's a bigger damn picture here - try to grasp it and understand that showcasing ourselves continually in this light is sending the wrong message. the same females defending this garbage are the same ones getting upset when some european openly classifies us as "nigger bitches" and mutilate our genitals on a full body "nigger cake". GTFOH and WAKE UP!!!!! people only treat us the way we allow them to ... it's time to take a stand and demand better of ourselves and our sisters.

You ppl make me so sick. Everyone on television is fighting or doing something degrading so if you are going to take one show off take all of them off. If yall are so concerned about the children then STOP them from watching. If reality is parenting your CHILD then something needs to be said about you! This shit is for entertainment purposes only! No I don't condone bullying but the necessary steps are being taken to address what happened. Just like a previous post said how can you take jobs away from those behind the scenes as well. NOT FAIR AND NOT COOL. Simply just change the channel or find a BLACK show that makes you "proud" to be black! The entire world is judgemental like you are living your life correctly. What y'all see on tv is only an edited version of their lives SO YOU DON'T KNOW THESE WOMEN! LEAVE THEM ALONE
