Last week, BET’s 106 & Park hostess Rocsi Diaz sat down with Peter Bailey on NBC’s NiteCap and basically said she was sexually harassed by rapper Webbie on the show in October. She claims he made an offensive remark and was then banned from 106, by Diaz’ cohost Terrence J.
“It’s really sad that it was taken to the extreme, not to the extreme, excuse me, but the way it was looked upon. ‘Oh he was banned.’ I think that…in any light that a woman feels she was disrespected and I have thick skin…but when you’re at a job and someone sexually harasses you in a manner that is very vulgar and disgusting. You know, I have no shame in sticking up for myself and telling you that you’re improper right now. I’m at work, I’m on a set, there’s children around us…you’re really out of line right now. And I think that people should applaud more so a woman sticking up for herself and the people around her for sticking up for herself than allowing that kind of behavior to happen. And I think that we allow that behavior to happen too much in our society and we don’t put light on people being unappropriate (sic).”
Webbie somewhat addressed Diaz’s comments in an interview with HipHopNews24-7.com, giving a slightly incoherent response to the accusations.
“Man, I ain’t thinking about that girl man. I be here with my dogs, we ain’t trippin all day…My n*gga talking ‘bout what’s the best way to get a bad b*tch? We steady thinkin’ of tricks playas do to get bad bitches in the bed. We started makin plans, ya heard…if you ain’t thick or fine, a** ain’t jiggling when you walk, I don’t even want to have nothing to do with you. We can be friends, ‘Hey. How you doin?” I don’t f**k with ‘em, my d*ck too big.”
Despite the lingering controversy, 2012 already seems to be a busy year for both. Diaz will make her acting debut as a Western girl in “Gang of Roses,” release a new book and has started to DJ.
