(AllHipHop News) Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg joined the bashing of Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic. He aimed most of his vitriol at the movie’s executive producer Wendy Williams. It was what seemed to be Williams’ ratings-over-quality response to the film’s criticism that appeared to anger Rosenberg, and the radio personality called Wendy out for being a negative force in Hip Hop.
“This is a person who never contributed positively to this culture ever. Full on gossip queen,” said Rosenberg. “In fact, she spawned the next gossip queen Charlamagne Tha God. That is what she has contributed to this culture. More people who create detrimental bs.”
Charlamagne spent the early part of his career working with Wendy Williams. He eventually joined Power 105’s The Breakfast Club morning show where he competes against rival station Hot 97 and Rosenberg.
Rosenberg has taken shots at Charlamagne in the past. The Ebro In The Morning co-host referred to Charlamagne as an “internet troll” last year. Rosenberg took issue with Charlamagne’s The Breakfast Club interview with Kanye West. He tweeted at the time, “thank you @cthagod for showing us the actual human form of an internet troll…40 minutes with kanye west and all of it spent trolling.”
Rosenberg also threw a few subliminal shots at C Tha God for his own recent critical response to the Aaliyah movie. During his “Donkey of the Day” segment, Charlamagne did not place all the blame on Williams for the routinely ripped biopic. Instead, he named all of the producers of the film and its screenwriter.
“Aaliyah? Not Biggie, not Pac, cause God bless both of them – there’s controversy to find there. No, no, no – Aaliyah. How can you do wrong by her? And [Williams] did,” added Rosenberg. “I’m not gonna be like other people and get on and make excuses and point out the other four nameless producers I’ve never heard of. They were trying to get a check, but Wendy Williams was at some point given a lot by this culture, and this was her way of giving back?”
