Shawty Lo, 10 Baby Mamas and 1 Massive Fail
I didn’t know who or what a Shawty Lo was until end of last week, when folks hit up my Facebook fan page and said he deserved some words. I googled it and find out that he is some dude with 10 baby mamas, 11 kids and an upcoming reality TV show on Oxygen. In fact, the show will be called “All My Babies Mamas.” They all live in one house and this show will be about their drama.
Things like this is why we cannot have nice things. This is why we are losing as a people and species and I just want to hit my *wall slide*. We’re regressing. iSweaterGAWD we are.
What’s wrong with this? Well EVERYTHING. I can’t find one thing right with it. I have many questions and no answers. So I am just sitting here facepalming and shaking my head, wondering where we went wrong. But I’ma ask these questions anyway.
1. Why is this grown ass man named Shawty Lo? Your mama named you Carlos and you grew up to answer to SHAWTY LO. Talk about knowing you weren’t gonna be about much.
b. How did this dude, who is 5’nothing get 10 women to procreate with him? He got 10 women to agree for him to inseminate them. This is what happens when girls live lives of lowered expectations.
iii. Does Team Bad Decisions replicate like Gremlins? It feels like that’s the case because there is surely no shortage of people who are walking around making piss poor decisions.
4a. Why does America keep awarding people for their lack of condom use? As if Teen Moms wasn’t bad enough. Now we’re getting a dude who must not know about the existence of condoms, has a lethal allergy that means he will literally die if he puts one on, or is so stupid and reckless that he can’t be bothered to use one. I believe option number 3 is most likely. What does he get for his idiocy? A TV show about his dysfunctional life. I’m unable to even deal with this foolery. And we’re to blame as we keep rewarding this behavior.
V. Also, how many STDs has this man had or currently has? Statistically speaking, he is highly likely to have one or more. Clearly, he isn’t a fan of condom use. I wonder if he has a whole new ecosystem growing in his nether regions. Dude is a walking virus, I bet. Weapons of mass diseases. He is a menace to public health and I am not here for any of it.
This whole thing is ridiculous. 10 baby mamas, 11 kids and 1 idiot behind it all. Well, no. These women can’t be charged with having too much common sense either since they’re the 2nd parties to his sperm shooting parties.
And according to NewsOne:
Each baby mama has an eye-catching title such as the ‘First Lady E’Creia,’ who handles Lo’s finances and who was actually engaged to him at one point after he already had three children. Then there’s Angela, the “Fighter Baby Mama,” Amanda, the “Jealous Baby Mama,” Sujuan, the “Wanna-be Bougie Baby Mama” and Tamara, the “No-Drama Baby Mama.”
This is some type of Zane novel gone bad. I promise. Or it’s like some old racist white man’s exact idea of what ALL Black people are like. I feel like I should be apologizing to someone for this. Talmbout “So sorry. We’re not all like this.” This is me:
Each woman has a damb nickname. Like “Baby Mama” is some sort of band they’re in. Here’s Spicy Baby Mama, Sporty Baby Mama… NAWL. This is terrible. Baby mama is the name of a movie and a fantasia song. Nothing more. Stawp it. These are the mothers of your kids.
A man saying “that’s my baby mama” is basically just saying “oh that’s the heffa who let me freak without a condom and my sperm had a good day.” Well, Shawty Lo’s had at least 11 good days. And 10 fools who were accepting of it.
All of this is just irresponsible as hell. And we’ll get to see this on TV. Well, not WE. This is one show I’ll be skipping out on. I draw a ratchet line, y’all! I REALLY do. iCan’t even deal with this. I’ll spend each hour cursing while watching it. So nay. Y’all best not ask for recaps of this show from me. NAWL.
Anywho, will you be watching? What are your thoughts on this foolishment.
Edit: For those talmbout he shouldn’t be roasted because he is actually taking care of his kids. Well, I don’t think he deserves a pat on the back for doing what he’s SUPPOSED to be doing. Treating men like toddlers. “YAY SHAWTY! YOU’S A GOOD MAN FOR BEING THERE FOR YOUR KIDS!” No. NAWL. Try again. And stop living a life of lowered expectations. (-_-)
Also, Chris Rock already talked about this.
