3. Saigon Hates Women
Erica Jean and Saigon have been a walking and fighting PSA for condoms this entire season, but they went out with a depressing ass bang yesterday. First off, their baby was planned. Yes, these two people who clearly don’t know each other very well actually planned to have a baby despite that fun fact. I wonder if Erica Jean regrets such a decision given she’s procreated with a mean-spirited misogynist who refuses to talk to her with even a smidgen amount of respect.
Saigon will literally not allow that poor woman to finish a sentence. He yells at her to shut up. He calls her a bitch. He howls about her being a liar. He then goes into some sort of cliché-riddled rant about babies and black men and how “these women” use their kids as “pawns.” Gee, Saigon, I can’t imagine why the “other bitches” you have babies with won’t allow you to see them.
And when asked why he talks to her in a disrespectful manner, Saigon channels the rallying cry of all abusive men by declaring, “That’s all she know how to respond to.” There were tears in this segment, too, with Erica Jean crying, “You don’t respect me.” What does Saigon say? The mother of his child doesn’t deserve his respect. It must be earned.
Erica, you might need a restraining order. You can’t help that troubled man and his mommy issues. Run.
