Thousands Petition Rapper Shawty Lo’s Show “All My Babies Mamas”

(AllHipHop News) Thousands of people are protesting a new show being launched on Oxygen TV, centered around rapper Shawty Lo and his 10 children.

Shawty Lo is starring in “All My Babies’ Mamas,” that centers around the Atlanta rapper’s “modern family” unit.

In addition to 10 his children, “All My Babies’ Mamas” stars the 10 mothers of Shawty Lo’s children and his new, 19-year-old girlfriend as well.

A petition on Change.org has already reached 3,000 signatures, with outraged replies over the contents of the show.

“By pushing these degrading images, your company seeks to profit from the humiliation of girls and women and the blatant stereotyping of African-Americans,” said the petitions creator, Sabrina Lamb.

“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,” Lamb wrote.

In addition to the petition on Change.org, the show has spark mixed reactions on the Internet.

An editorial on TheRoot.com (a Washington Post company) blasted the show, while an editorial on Clutch Magazine urged African-Americans to stop “owning” such racist television shows.

“Stop it with the black shame. Shawty Lo is not the black community,” wrote Tami Winfrey-Harris. “If the white guys over on Gawker aren’t hanging their heads over Mick Jagger, his many children, and their mothers, then you can still hold your head high in a world where Shawty Lo and ‘Fighter Baby Mama’ exist.”

“All My Babies’ Mamas” was created by Liz Gateley and Tony DiSanto of DiGa Vision.

Together, Gateley and DiSanto are the creative force behind such hit shows such “TRL,” “Run’s House,” “Nick Cannon Presents Wild ‘N Out” and others.

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