Video: New Reality Show 'All My Babies' Mamas' Causes Outrage Before Airing
A yet-to-air reality show 'All My Babies' Mamas' starring rapper Carlos 'Shawty Lo' Walker, who has fathered eleven children by ten different women, has been slammed by critics (video below).
All My Babies' Mamas, set to air this spring on the Oxygen network, will follow Walker and his bizarre family life in Atlanta, Georgia, reports Mediaite.com.
After a 13-minute trailer of the series hit the Internet, thousands of viewers called for it to be axed in a Change.org petition because the show "stereotypes and demeans black children, mothers and dads."
In the trailer, Walker is seen talking about managing his music career and the struggles of being a father: "'How does a guy like me have ten baby mamas eleven kids? It’s heaven. I had a lot of girls... They was in love and, I probably was too. And it just happened."
Sabrina Lamb, who launched the Change.org petition to stop the show from airing, told Essence magazine: "In the clip I saw, Lo couldn't even remember the names of all of his 11 children. This is not funny to me. What's funny about this?"
E'creia, who gave birth to Walker's first child and refers to herself as 'The First Lady', introduces the other women (who have also had kids), including: 'Jealous', 'The Baby Mama From Hell' and 'Shady Baby Mama.'
Walker's new girlfriend Ashlin, who is the same age as one of his oldest children, says on the show: "Me and Carlos have been dating for about a year now and I’m really in love with him."
Despite public outcry, Oxygen has defended its new show in a statement: "Oxygen’s one-hour special in development is not meant to be a stereotypical representation of everyday life for any one demographic or cross-section of society."
"It is a look at one unique family and their complicated, intertwined life… Oxygen Media’s diverse team of creative executives will continue developing the show with this point of view."
Sadly, Oxygen pulled the trailer for the show, but fortunately 'The Five' on Fox News recorded and aired part of it, which host Eric Bolling called "train wreck TV."
