If you thought we, as in black women, had a problem with our reality TV presence, Adam Levine’s recent outlash at the TLC show “Honey Boo Boo” has completed eclipsed any of our concerns. As part of GQ magazine’s Punch List, the singer made no effort to hold his tongue when asked what’s scarier, waking up not famous or waking up as one of Honey Boo Boo‘s parents? Brace for his response.
Seriously, Honey Boo Boo is the DECAY of Western civilization. Just because so many people watch the show doesn’t mean it’s good. So many people witness atrocities and can’t take their eyes away from them, but that doesn’t mean they’re good.
That show is literally The. Worst. Thing. That’s. Ever. Happened. It’s complete f**king ignorance and the most despicable way to treat your kids. F**k those people. You can put that in the magazine: F**k those idiots. They’re just the worst. Sorry, I’m so sensitive to that—like, I don’t know, man, it’s upsetting. Just to clarify, I said, “F**K THOSE PEOPLE.”
I mean we’ve got some ratchet things going on in television, but no one ever approached the situation quite this way. While we’re trying to figure out how much folks like Joseline and Mimi are supposedly setting us back, Adam is just like eff those people. Maybe that’s the best way to approach it. No need to try to explain the ratchetry, just eff it.
Do you think Adam is being too harsh or is he on point about Honey Boo and ‘dem being the decline of western civilization?
