Star Jones Spearheads Petition Against Basketball Wives, Evelyn LozadaPublished by Natasha Fierce on Friday, April 27, 2012 at 10:15 am.
The drama on Basketball Wives seems to have finally crossed the line from ratings-booster to public disgrace. A group of fans lead by—who else—Star Jones have launched a petition to stop the insanity on the show, in particular calling out ish-starter Evelyn Lozada for her “bullying.” The petitioners want to make Evelyn pay for her bad behavior by calling on network execs to cancel her spin-off show, Chad & Ev.
The petition reads:
Evelyn Lozada is a bully. The violence on “Basketball Wives” is horrible and disgraceful. Physical assaults, threats, verbal abuse, and harassment. VH1 is rewarding this behavior by giving Evelyn a spinoff. Don’t reward negative behavior.
This is not a hate petition against Eveyln Lozada. We simply will not support violence. It hurts to see violence amongst women on television for entertainment purposes. It is not ok for women to hit each other on TV.
