David Edwards

Talk about a misunderstood brotha. David Edwards was from the first “Real World” season in Los Angeles, and he was, of course, the first cast member on the show to be kicked out of the house. As you know if you tuned in back in the day, Edwards was kicked out for playing too much. As a hilarious writer for Uproxx.com put it: “He raped one of the roommates. And by raped, I mean, he playfully yanked bedcovers off of Tami while she was in her underwear as part of a harmless, fun game where the girls were laughing throughout the tug of war.” And that’s exactly what happened. But instead of folks brushing it off as a joke gone bad, cast mates turned on Edwards and made it seem as though they didn’t feel safe in the house with him. He was later kicked out. Nowadays, well, after having roles in movies like House Party 3 and more, Edwards is a working comedian. On a side note, do you remember the “Mad Real World” skit from “The Chappelle Show”? Well, it was influenced by the incident between David and Tami Akbar (aka, Tami Roman), as it was to poke fun at the often racist perceptions cast members often have about the black cast members after small things are blown out of proportion.
