The hatred of “Basketball Wives” has bubbled over to all spectrums of the social media world.
Star Jones is protesting the over-the-top dramality show, “Basketball Wives.”
She took to Twitter and has called on ‘high-profile’ black women to stand up and speak out against the ridiculousness of the show.
In the past, Jones voiced her opinion about the horrid portrayal of black women the show promotes, from fighting and scratching, arguing black women.
“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH,” wrote Star, who is apparently tired of talking about the issue and ready to do something about it. “About to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media,” wrote Star, who had just had a pow wow with Black Girls Rock! creator, Beverly Bond.
Jones was particularly outraged and had enough of the mindless aggression after Jennifer Williams was slapped in the face and criticized for taking the issue to court.
“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,” wrote Jones.
Star said her motivation for blasting “Basketball Wives” wasn’t to put anybody out of work. She just thinks young black girls need better examples.
“…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,” said Star.
Meanwhile, Star’s pal, Sherri Shepherd has already spoken out against the show several times, and Star wants more women to take a stand.
“I’m asking all my high profile, platform having conscientious sisters who STAND FOR SOMETHING to just say #ENOUGHisENOUGH & call folk out! Be mad. But think about what I said. WE ARE BETTER than that. You’re either part of the problem or part of the solution.”
