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?

Thank God finally people are

Thank God finally people are coming to a consensus in our community that these shows are an absolute disservice. I don't care about Mob Wives or Jersey Shore. All I care about is how we are portrayed because we unfortunately do not have the luxury of looking like a fool and not worrying that this stereotype can harm us in getting jobs, going to nice venues, etc. I agree sign that damn petition!!!

The world is just so

The world is just so hypocritical. The BLACK women and rhoa have fought before and no one is petitioning to get their show cancelled. This is absolutely ridiculous. Star Jones was on Wendy Williams show mildly talking about nene so what makes her think that she is better than Evelyn or anyone else on reality tv. The world is so overly sensitive and yall need to get yall lives. If you dont like the show then dont watch plain and simple. And FYI Evelyn's new show is focusing on her relationship an her marriage NOT bullying. GET A LIFE!!!

Well if you think about it

Well if you think about it the RHOA arent as immature as the BASKETBALL WIVES they have never had any physical altercations like this bitch EVELYN and her flunkies have. Everything on the RHAO is usally verbal so i wouldnt consider RHOA on the same level as the BBW.

Love THIS! So tired of

Love THIS! So tired of certain companies/organizations and folks with low esteem thinking that this is great Tv. The Kardashians just signed a $40 million contract for their non-sensical show and these chicks on VH1 are fighting and scratching people up for coins. Just sad. Its definitely lopsided on how certain folk are portrayed; its time to stop it.

I was so glad to see this

I was so glad to see this post! I signed the petition and I will never support another project of Shaunie or anymore of these low class reality shows. Evelyn is like a human trashcan to me so I expect nothing good from her anyway.

As a black women I don't

As a black women I don't watch Mob Wives or That Jersey shore Garbage I'd rather support a black reality TV show like BBW, was my thoughts at first, but as the seasons when on the show is just turning into straight garbage! All the show is doing is putting stereotypes of black women on full blasts!! Btwn Tammi n Evelyn it's rediculouse the fighting n putting hands on other women it mind bottles me that they think that behavior is ok after a certain age as a women you should no better but One of these days Evelyn or Tammy will run into the wrong one, they gonna slice n dice those pretty faces up and they gonnna wish they sat they asses down! Bottom line I don't support this garbage right along with JS or MW and any other garbage out there. And it'll probably take me 10 seconds to sign that petition against this garbage n I would continue on with my day.

"Le sigh. Why boycott when

"Le sigh. Why boycott when you could call the Florida Boxing Commission and ask them whether VH1 has a license to organize and conduct arm to arm combat for entertainment purposes. Since the production is claiming the women agree to being beat up via contract. If boxing and MMA are regulated, why not reality TV? Someone with extra time on their hands should call to inquire.

I couldn't believe the

I couldn't believe the episode when Evelyn put her mom and dad on camera. He couldn't speak a full sentence and the mother's english was horrible. It was shameful. She's bragging about having money and getting married to someone with money and her parents looked like they just crossed the border. Shame on you Evelyn for exploiting your parents in that manner. I am of puertorican descent and you made us all look like bad. I hope they do boycott your azz. You're a disgrace.

In the words of a great brotha/philosopher name "Brian White, "You can't call it a stereotype if it's the majority" ... So i say keep the show going, a black woman is the PRODUCER OF THE SHOW BY THE WAY.LET THE WORLD SEE BLACK WOMEN IN ACTION!!!!!!!
Letsgetit's picture

That's where your mind is so

That's where your mind is so screwed up...because it's not the majority. I know you were raised and surrounded by ghetto black women in your family so therefore all black women are ghetto in your world. I don't blame you for your ignorance and hatred of black women; I blame your family, especially your mother. I know I know...you don't hate black woman, just hate the way they act. Well, your loud ranting, ghetto writing, non sensical judging and disgusting cursing on this blog shows you are the most ghetto of any black woman I have ever met. So you are right about one thing the downfall of black men like you are ghetto black women 'cause the have taught you very well.

Not just ghetto women but black women in general MOST HAVE A INDEPENDENT , IM TOO GOOD, I HATE KINKY HAIR, I HATE BLACK SKIN, I HATE BEING BLACK , MOST GET VERY LOUD AND LIKE PLAYING THE ROLE OF A MAN!!!!!!!YOU CAN'T DISAGREE WITH ME, BLACK WOMEN GET MAD AT A NIGGA JUST FOR OPENING THE DAMN DOOR FOR THEM LOLLL ... I've been all over America and out of all races black women act the shittiest as a collective

I agree with Star 100%.

I agree with Star 100%. Enough is enough. Evelyn has single-handedly ruined the show with her antics. Although Tammy is not totally innocent, she's playing the role of " instigator" this season. The high-schoolish behavior is appauling, and I hope people stop tuning-in because it's not "ok" to send the message that the type of behavior is acceptable. I will definitely sign the petition to stop the madness.

This is bloody hypocrisy...

This is bloody hypocrisy... Come up here talking about how much it hurts to see violence amongst women. Bad girls club has been going on for years an those bitches fight their asses off and yall dont sign no petition or nothing and now just cause evelyn stood her ground, you guys are all up in her business saying it hurts too see violence amongst women?? Get your lives...

The real villain here is

The real villain here is Shaunie and her thirsty ass, who allows Tami and Evelyn to behave like that all for ratings which means money for her. Why can't they be like Nene and RHOA, them ladies put on a show with that 3 part reunion and NOBODY even got off the couch to do so. lol.

AGREE 1000%!! Shaunie sits

AGREE 1000%!! Shaunie sits right in the middle of the shit and says nothing. She knows if she checks Evelyn, her show will be a thing of the past. I bet you Shaunie wouldn't be down for that mess if it her daughter was bullied by an Evelyn or Tami...smh

I agree with you 1000%. Shaunie very much responsible for foolishness that is displayed on that show. I signed the petition and I refused to watch any BBW or Evelyn show. I am done with these old hags.

The show started out giving

The show started out giving the average person a glimpse into the lives of "the rich". These women should have continued in that direction. They rarely gave to charity, and anyone who has money knows that's one of the most important things you can do. Once they started with all the fighting it went downhill from there. Not to mention that most of them were jump off's, not wives. No better for them all. Cancel the show. See where they land. That will be a good show.

Black people always complaining about this show then don't watch it!!! But thats extreme to want her show remove....you have very vulgar shows worse then BBW such as Mob wives they beat the hell out of each other and every other word is a curse word and jersey shore!!! People are not putting up petitions to get them off tv!!! My point is if you dont like it then dont watch it, at the end of the day the show has an audience that will continue to watch!!

I agree... Star Jones is stupid! I totally agree don't watch the mess. What about black little girls first of all they should not be watching the mess. Parents need to be role model for children not people on TV. People kill me with that why are these kids watching it. Where is parental control. Why mess with someone else money? You did not quit Donald Trump show when he talked about the President. So,please sit down with that. Just scared Al going to say something about you.

Star Jones is obese? really?

Star Jones is obese? really? why is that when a woman has an opinion about something, conversation has to degenerate to her weight, looks, name calling? This hatred towards women needs to stop. Star has an opinion, its her right to have one. Grow up, name calling is childish and bullying. smh.

Michelle Obama should petition Star Jones to get off the air since she makes people think that the only way to lose weight or be healthy is to get a weight loss surgery. I mean that makes sense if we keep following Star Jones' mentality. Bitch you are ratchet!!!!!!

She's a...I can't eeem think of a word for her...she's just dumb. And her daughter??

This is the best news i heard

This is the best news i heard in a long time. Hell yea, I will sign that petition. Remove that garbage from the air. There is absolutely nothing positive about this show. All the women do is case on each other, throw jabs, and belittle one another. This show should not be on the air because it is nothing but trash. It is perpetuating violence in the worst way by the form of bullying. I for one stopped watching this season but have seen clips that had made my stomach turn. If I was a parent i would not want my kid watching this show. It is embarrassing not just to black women but women of all color. Please remove this from the air. As far as Evelyn is concerned, she is the culprit behind the madness. There is no way Chad will marry that broad. He's doing strictly for publicity and nothing else.

What I find interesting is

What I find interesting is that most people signing this petition seem to be doing so because of what happened to Jennifer but I bet she would be AGAINST it. Did she tweet in support this? I bet not! She LOVES the fame and money that comes along with being apart of this foolishness. If she wanted to take a bigger stand, she would quit the show after this season but I guarantee she WON'T and she'll be involved in some other type of drama again next season. Almost like an abused woman who goes right back to the sorry man asking to be abused again. Like someone else stated, many people are signing because they don't "like" a certain person. Not because they care about the portrayal of black woman on television.

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.
