Star Jones Lashes Out At Basketball Wives on Twitter

Movies & TV

Vibe / April 26, 2012

Looks like Star Jones may be starting a movement against negative images of women of color in the media.

Something sparked some rage in The View host who took to Twitter last night to voice her disdain for Basketball Wives and how the women present themselves on television.

“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH,” she tweeted. “About to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media.”

“And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn’t have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS,” she continued in a series of tweets. “You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity.  I’m asking all my high profile, platform having conscientious sisters who STAND FOR SOMETHING to just say #ENOUGHisENOUGH & call folk out! Be mad. But think about what I said. WE ARE BETTER than that. You’re either part of the problem or part of the solution.
