I know what you’re thinking–these celebs are so busy making money and making moves that they’re not worried about what you think about them. That may be true, but around here, it never hurts to keep it real when we feel like some of the biggest names out their speaking for black folks are doing too much or too little. There’s something about every person on this list that I can appreciate, however, there are many things about them that have come to turn me off, as well as a few other people (a lot of other people actually).
