Actress Vivica A. Fox stirred up a hornet’s nest when she went on Andy Cohen‘s “Watch What Happens Live” and called her ex-boyfriend, 50 Cent a derogatory slur against homosexuals.
Cohen invited Fox, 51, on the show to discuss 50 Cent’s opinion that Empire is losing viewers due to “too much gay stuff.”
In discussing her former lover’s controversial statement, Vivica showed her true colors by tearing down one of the few heterosexual black men left in the music industry.
She pointed to the Nov. 2010 issue of XXl magazine featuring 50 Cent and rapper Soulja Boy, and said Fiddy looked like a “booty snatcher” on the cover.
Fiddy, 41, characteristically responded to Vivica’s gay slur with his usual juvenile disses and memes that degrade women in general.
All of this back and forth was fodder for the bloggers who largely took 50 Cent’s side in the online beef.
Vivica needs to move on with her life. She repeatedly chooses emotionally unavailable men to boost her low self-esteem. Vivica perpetuates the stereotype that black women are bitter and can’t move on when they are dumped.
Others are laughing at these two fully grown black people disrespecting themselves and their race on national television and on social media.
We must do better.
