Now that’s fucked up…but there’s more.
TMZ.com was pretty hard on the BET Music Awards and even harder on the women and their fashion.
"From the looks of last night’s red carpet, it’s obvious why the BET Awards honor the best entertainers in music, film and sports — but not fashion! BET phone home!
From Beyonce’s roboho performance getup to Eve’s streetwalker chic, check out why it’s time these artists hired new stylists and put the hip back into hip-hop!
On another note, while Robin Thicke didn’t scare up any fashion alarms, he also failed to become the first white artist to win a BET Award. The world will just have to wait for Celine Dion’s next album to drop!"
After posting their write up, an online race war broke out on their website between whites and Blacks.
After reading the following posts regarding the fashions at last night’s BET Music Awards Show, I’d say some of TMZ’s readers have issues with Blacks and maybe TMZ.com does as well, or at least their writers.
And I quote:
"Black people are idiots Black people can’t dress A few of them are hot (ie. Rhianna) Most are not (ie. HIV-infected Bayonce) Black people: understand this: The more you complain about whites hating blacks, the less you will amount to in your lives. Can you honestly find ANY successful black people in the world? I can’t. Why? They all complain. The Japanese were slaves too at once point. Want to know why they are some of the richest people in the world? They don’t dwell on the past. So listen up you little oil rags: SHUT UP."-–JEFF
"YOU "AFRICAN AMERICANS" CAN JUDGE WHITE PEOPLE BUT WE CANNOT EVEN SAY A WORD ABOUT YOU. YOUR REPRESENTING REVERSE RACISM AND THATS PATHETIC. DON’T TALK ABOUT THIS SLAVERY !@?#$ EITHER BECAUSE YOUR MOTHERLAND SOLD YOUR PEOPLE TO US. YOUR IN A FREE COUNTRY THAT WAS FOUNDED BY WHITE PEOPLE…YOUR LUCKY TO BE IN THIS COUNTRY BECAUSE YOU COULD BE LIVING BACK IN ETHIOPIA. NOT ONLY THAT BUT THE MAJORITY PEOPLE SUCKING THE WELFARE, MEDICAID AND ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS IN THIS COUNTRY SUCH AS FOOD STAMPS ARE AFRICAN AMERICANS!!! AT LEAST THE WET BACKS THAT COME FROM MEXICO KNOW HOW TO WORK THEIR ASS OF FOR THE FREEDOM THEY’RE STARVING FOR. ALL YOU PEOPLE KNOW HOW TO DO (FOR THE MOST PART) IS BITCH, WHINE, POP OUT KIDS AND SHOOT EACH OTHER. YEA….I PLAYED THE RACISM ROLE, BECAUSE YOUR DOING THE SAME F**KING THING. SO KISS MY WHITE #$!@?" —WHITEGIRL
I am not feeling TMZ.com right now, nor their racist readers. It’s clear to me that the issue of race was introduced with the "…while Robin Thicke didn’t scare up any fashion alarms, he also failed to become the first white artist to win a BET Award" line, thus setting the stage for the white power racists to come out of hiding. And refering to Beyonce’s performance as "roboho" sends a clear message of the lack of respect TMZ.com’s writers have for Black women. So tell me? What’s the difference between "nappy headed ho" and "roboho?" Exactly.
