'LHH: MIA' Star Young Hollywood Catches Heat For "Racist" Comments

Black Twitter drags the producer for what he said to Amara La Negra.

(AllHipHop News) The latest edition of the Love & Hip Hop franchise debuted last night (January 1). Miami's installment of the reality series has already sparked controversy.

Latin Trap producer Elijah "Young Hollywood" Sarraga offended a lot of viewers when he appeared to make anti-black statements about his self-described Afro-Latina castmate Amara La Negra. Young Hollywood could be heard saying Amara needed to be "more Beyoncé less Macy Gray" in order to work with her on music, and he stated she can't be "elegant" with an Afro hairstyle.

"You're just a little intense about this whole 'African thing,'" Sarraga told Amara at one point. He later sarcastically referred to her as a "Nutella Queen."

Social media began lashing out at Young Hollywood. "Black Twitter" dragged him for his critique of the Miami-raised Dominican performer, and Instagram users left hundreds of negative comments under Sarraga's pictures.

In a bonus clip featured on VH1.com, Young Hollywood recognized he would likely face backlash for what he said on Love & Hip Hop: Miami. The "Check Yourself" segment included him admitting, "They're gonna attack me for that."

He prob like the rest of these suppose “industry” guys on this show how many of them really do music outside of the show? They all seem to be there to sexually harass women and using music creation as a vehicle to do it! Wich imo is the only reason why he had a prob with her momma coming to the session Smh and if I was her bro dude would have a serious prob!

I am beyond disgusted with his comments. This woman is beautiful. All these chicks looking the same out here and she's embracing her blackness. Please keep dragging his ass black twitter. She is by far the best looking female on that show!
