Critics of the controversial “reality” show “All My Babies’ Mamas’,” starring rapper Shawty Lo can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the show will no longer make its way to the television screen. All My Babies’ Mamas’, which was set to appear on Oxygen, was expected to follow Shawty Lo, his 11 children, and their mothers — all 10 of them.
On Tuesday January 15th, the following written statement was made to MTV news by an Oxygen network spokesperson:
“As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special.” They continued their statement saying, “We will continue to develop compelling content that resonates with our young female viewers and drives the cultural conversation.”
MTV news reports that online petitions and threats to boycott were made as soon as the show’s pilot hit the Internet. For more on this visit MTV.
