OH HEYEEEEEL NO! Bossip Calls Maya Angelou a "Ho"- T-Mobile and Verizon PAY FOR IT!


Bossip has always been edgy, but this foolishness right here is ridiculous. They have a picture of Dr. Maya Angelou underneath a caption called "Ho Sit Down". They have been consistently critical and mocking of anyone supporting Hillary Clinton labeling certain people sellouts and "ho's", including calling Hillary Clinton a "Ho" They claim that they aren't calling HER a "Ho", but what other conclusion could you come to? Wait... is that a T-mobile ad I see?



Update: Call T Mobile and Verizon and ask them to stop using your money to call Dr. Angelou a "Ho". Because that is what they are doing. When you advertise on a site, you are paying to produce its content. So T Mobile and Verizon paid for this Foolishness right here! Stop Funding Foolishness

You know the deal. Bros before hoes. Black women are both black and woman, but black men will only accept black women's blackness, not their womanliness.

Bros before Hoes is Ride or Die ideology. If a black woman don't pick the bro over the ho she isn't a ride or die. If she is not a ride or die, then she better get to stepping because he can't give her no respect. She might as well be a snitch, white, a lesbian, etc.

This is my first peek at Bossip. It will be my last one.

The one thing that has really discouraged me about the political process in recent years is that people have gotten really mean with name calling and sheer hostility. For the first time I have stayed out of the fray. Name calling does not solve problems. My primary is next week on Super Tuesday. I have no clue who I will vote for. This is bothersome to me as one that has prided herself with getting involved and making informed decisions. I'm pretty disgusted at this point. Posts like the Bossip one do not help. I hope that they may take a look and maybe see the light.

I agree! I just called the only phone number I could find on the site to complain. Bossip advertising is handled by Gorilla Nation. Contact listed here: http://www.bossip.com/advertise/

They wouldn't provide a phone number so complaints could be made in person. Of course! They did however provide the following email address: jmartin@moguldom.com.

Hopefully people will immediately contact advertisers on the site and express their outrage. Apparently there's a thin line between "edgy" and "disrespectful." This has clearly crossed over.

GET EM GIRL!!!! HAVE TO ADMIT I LUV THE SITE, BUT WHEN I SAW MS. ANGELOUS PIC. UNDER THE "HO SIT DOWN" TITLE (WHICH THEY STOLE FROM ONE OF THEIR OWN COMMENTERS) I KNEW ALL HELLLL WAS GONNA BREAK LOOSE...CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW MANY ADDS THEY LOOSE...

*Sighs* What is with this attack on black women...and early in the year?! And all they have to say is "It's just the title"?!

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDeidra

ETA: Maybe I can go on Bossip everyday and flood the comments until they take that mess of an idea down.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDeidra

I agree. It was my first time looking at Bossip. I have no idea what their focus is. However I see from this post that they will call any bw a ho just because they do not like a decision she made. As I stated it will be the last time I will check that site out. I refuse to partake of any media from anyone that does not value me as a person. How popular is that site anyway? I have no clue.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPamela

Why is she a Ho, because she has her own political ideas? Because she is not a sheep and proudly speaks her own mind. I haven't decided who I am going to vote for, so does that make me a ho?

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Issues

bossip has a theme they call ho sit down for people that either say things they disagree with OR say/do some questionable things. it's not just about women or black women...roseanne barr, robert johnson, and george bush have all been featured in that category. what i want to know is....would people be as upset if it were someone else? when they posted bush, no one had anything to say. or anyone else for that matter...i have nothing to say about the maya post just yet

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterA-Dub

Ho is used to describe fast and loose FEMALES. As a new person looking at Bossip my first thought of the site was that they only went after females just because of the term ho in the title.

Thanks for the explanation of how that phrase is used.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPamela

Not only the ho sit down! But also the audacity to add salt to the injury by adding this "Why do all these old-time chitlin’ era civil rights leaders feel obligated to support and play puppet for the shady Clintons?...Hey Johnny, why you want to leave this good ole plantation, massa been good to us, you better support them good ole clintons, we don’t need no freedom"

What the hell I mean really? Furthermore, comments by posters indicate the ideology of America's future generation, clearly for alot of these people their lives begin at livesteez and end with bossip!

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered Commentervile

a-dub, people are up in arms because Maya Angelou simply expressed an opinion, all other ho sit downs have majority of the time deserved it. But to get a ho sit down for not supporting Hillary is part of the problem. Bossip notoriously "slags" off anyone who does not support Obama.

As far as I'm concerned, bossip does more damage to the obama campaign than anything but that is totally open to debate!

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered Commentervile

I pride myself on the fact that I have never visited bossip. And don't plan on starting to now.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSheCodes

I actually didn't even know what Bossip was until Gina made this post.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBLKSeaGoat

Same here.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPamela

@ vile, who determines who deserves what? that site is an entertainment site so i take what they post with a grain of salt...but someone somewhere prolly agreed with bob johnson (people sure were clapping when he ran off at the mouth) so why weren't people defending his post? he was stating his opinion, was he not? but he was called all types of uncle toms, puppets, etc. also, a latino blogger frequently posts roseanne barr's rants about oprah and obama and A LOT of people agree with those posts...but not when they are posted on bossip, which is when she's been featured under the "ho sit down" label.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterA-Dub

I'm in total agreement. Calling Maya Angelou a ho is completely out of line. Totally uncalled for and I can't say I give a d***m about any theme they typically use. Its out of line. Furthermore, Bossip is not black owned either according to reporting from my brother Wayne Hicks blog Electronic Village.

I love this blog. I did not know how to spell Heyeeeeel until now.

all i'm asking is:
is the ho posting wrong cuz it's maya angelou? never heard such opposition until this post.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterA-Dub

Well Kitty, maybe this will be enough to wake black women up to Sistas before Mistas.

I'm no Angelou fan due to her support of Mike Tyson, however, this is ridiculous. And a-dub as far as no one protesting before is it possible that most of these people were unfamiliar with Bossip? I know that I paid them little or no heed prior to this? I thought they were another mean-spirited gossip blog, but thought they limited their vitriol to 2 a penny celebrities. I had no idea they attacked icons like Angelou.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterroslynholcomb

uh, yes it is possible...but i did comment earlier about their tendency to include any and all folks under this title and someone commented that they didn't care about the common theme that they post under...which is why i asked if their disgust was strictly based upon the fact that it is about angelou. now if someone had said that they didn't agree with the "ho sit down" theme all together, then i wouldn't have asked. sarcasm unnecessary.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterA-Dub

This is my first visit to your blog...I've read about all of your good works and want to congratulate you on your success...

But on to this tomfoolery...OMG! This is NOT ACCEPTABLE! I don't care what the context is, I don't care what their justification is (I've never read Bossip, and after this, never will), calling Ms. Angelou "that" will not be accepted...

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMsMarvalus

I'm not a reader of Bossip so I was not familiar with this regular theme thing. But I won't front, I don't like it cuz its Maya Angelou. She is a national icon and a figure of great respect, though I'm disappointed by her Clinton support. I'd probably object in the case of many people, but I'm reacting because I saw it associated with her. You could call me inconsistent, but even if I am, it doesn't make the reaction many of us are having that this is foul and over the line any less valid.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAaron & Alaine

It is an entertainment site with a very large market and the damage it does is no where entertaining! I usually make a comment here and there on certain blog sites but that was just appalling, no explanations or excuses will do and couple that with the fact of suspect ownership, one has to question their agenda especially if it's playing and pitting people against each other!

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered Commentervile

Further more, how many people actually take it with a pinch of salt? I mean you can, I usually take most of their posts, but you cannot deny the ideology of ignorance and disrespect it spreads, it's a shame people can take a lot from what is supposed to be entertainment!

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered Commentervile

Most entertainment blogs stay in the gutter, so this does'nt surprise me. Believe me I've seen worse. What's surprising is that there making fun of a someone who is a well respected elder. Even if Maya Angelou tried, I'm sure she would'nt get this joke - cause it's not funny. I don't read bossip and after peeking around it today, I can't find any reason too. They're not really pushing the envelope and being clever, they're just trying to say things for shock value. There's no creativity, no real wit, no genuine snarky humor. As celebrity blogs go, this one is pretty piss poor. The best medicine for that site would be to ignore them.

BTW, As an Obama supporter, I can care less about her endorsement of Hillary Clinton. Black people are lined up to endorse the Clinton's (maxine waters did today too). I'm convinced it must either suck to be on the Clinton's shit list or they throw the best dinner parties.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered Commenteriman

I am not a ho because I don't support Obama. Men who call anyone a ho do not respect women at all (including their mother). Bros before hoes is extremely misogynistic, Kitty. Who gives a damn about being ride or die. How about sisterhood.

Bossip and I are not friends. This is no secret. It's a site filled with low-brow, uneducated black people just acting a complete fool. Between the ABW who hates black men; the defensive black woman who will do anything for any man; the wannabe thug; and the psuedo-intellectual soul brothers; I don't know who si really worse.

I would not have taken time to even read Bossip if it had not been pointed out.

After reading the post and quite a few of the comments I have to say that it is way too tacky for my personal taste.

Since when in the hell can't people have different opinions and choices? The damn post title is too much and nobody should be put up under that type of label.

January 29, 2008 | Unregistered Commentermsladydeborah

This is beyond disrespectful. I am actually shocked though I've looked at Bossip from time to time. I left them a comment about it. It's my last visit to that site.

January 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterGorgeous Black Women

Thank you for enlightening me to the existence of bossip.com. I can't say that I had ever heard of it before this post. Of course, it is just another stop on the web that could possibly be ripe for some controversy every now and then. All publicity is good publicity, as the saying goes.

I'm not too sure that I would attribute the inclusion of Ms. Angelou in the "Ho Sit Down" segment of the site to "bros before hoes". The Obama/Clinton divide in the country has roots in race and gender; there exists more than one reason why the bossip staff might defame Maya Angelou for choosing to support Hillary. It doesn't, however, excuse the inflammatory disrespect of an elder and icon. Maya Angelou's position in the Black community and Black literary history also doesn't make her immune to foolishness either. Fortunately or unfortunately, the staff has the right to say what they want. Generally speaking, most wouldn't give much credence to a site like bossip...that is, except corporations seeking lucrative marketing channels.

I did take a few seconds to peruse the bossip.com site, and there were a number of reasons one should feel at least a tinge of annoyance at the content. Aside from the poor decision to place Maya Angelou in the "Ho Sit Down" segment of the site, the rather frequent references to women as "hoes" or "broads" should kick up some internal dust. The other side of that is that the market the site caters to seems to traffic the site pretty well. It speaks clearly to its demographic--"gossip for the hardcore: henny without any coke". It's a sad testament. But then again, I wouldn't give The Enquirer an ounce of serious attention; I certainly wouldn't be any less discriminatory with bossip.com.

January 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSavyge

I have no attachment to Maya Angelou as such. However the word ho has one meaning, that is, a woman that will put out for anyone with no discretion at all. I just felt that probably that term was more loosely used about women on that site. I did not check out any more posts. The fact that others that are not bw are so designated means absolutely nothing to me. To use that type of a term just because you disagree with someone is not good at all. For example, Attorneymom's list deals with people that she feels have major character flaws or she disagrees with WITHOUT calling them derogatory names.

Yes I am one that does not like that being done regardless of whether the person is a bw or not. It appears that Bossip is a sewer hole. At least in this nation we have freedom of speech, no matter how offensive that speech is. At least at this point they do not have to fear for their lives like in other nations.

January 30, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPamela

Bossip is a disgrace and a half. They pride themselves in exploiting the black community and it's bad behavior, specifically targeting black women mysogeny. i hate their interracial posts because it's always disgruntled black woman and men rambling stupidity. I also hate their Rihanna threads because it always boils down to black people's anti-immigration stance. And,I am happy that I got banned for going off on some ghetto banshee priding R. Kelly for exploiting a young 15-year-old girl.

Yea, you're right. But, those people with intelligence on Bossip, are the ones who get banned for speaking dead-on truth.

Actually, I wasn't banned. I still posted today about my outrage.
Perez is garbage, too, my dear, but Perez has been in trouble before for making certain racist comments about celebs of color.
There are plenty of black gossip sites that don't have to stoop to the level of Bossip, exploiting it's own people for personal gain. They do it all the time. Yea, I've been on Bossip more than once because other sites might link to bossip, as well as Media Take Out.

Exactly, why did you come to this site? To defend Bossip ignorant epitathes commonly used to degrade black celebrities? If so, you didn't prove any of your points. You act as if you're not outraged by the things often said on Bossip???

I am an AA female and although the comment about Angelo is no neccessary. She is a sell out, so is Maxine Waters, Ranglin, Lewis, Bob Johnson, & of course Magic Johnson. God help us if we did not unite with Dr. Martin Luther King for his Dream for the fight for freedom. We marched, believed, campaigned, dreamed, and rallied for the overall benefit of our people. When we as a people, still dismiss & question the validity of our AA men when they overfill the prison systems, are unemployed, and struggle to support their families, then its no wonder why they look for the white women to accept them. Being an AA female with natural green eyes, blonde hair and white skin, acceptance from my people has been the most important part of my being. Not once, did I ask, accept, or get a pass for my white complexion. I am AA first (ALWAYS) and woman second. Proud of Obama, yes. Can he identify with my problems, yes. My sons, my fathers, my brother, Yes. Can I have a black women in the white house, yes. Obama has two AA daughters, AA wife, and relatives from our continent Africa. His skin is my skin. The way the Bill attacked Obama is the same way he would attack any AA that got in the way of his, white woman. Sop looking for the White man to give us what we need. I can't believe that the house N****R & field N****R mentality appears stronger that ever. God help us that we can not unite for one single purpose, that benefits the importance of our people,the future of our children, as well as, this country. The Mexicans, Arabs, Asians, & all other nationalities have made considerable progress in a country that is not their home. Why, because they can put aside their jealousies, differences, and unite for a purpose that best serves their people. If you think that Hillary is your answer, ask yourself, how much economically, socially, & educationally did you benefit. People, especially young people, believe me, God has provided a chance of hope that might not been seen again. If you don't unite and at least give Obama a vote, then you will never have the opportunity at seeing the second part of Dr. Kings Dream. And for the non believers, if you have nothing good to say, do like the whites and keep quiet. God is telling us people, Obama can't be any realer. Its time we help ourselves and have our promise land. YOUNG PEOPLE VOTE!! BELIEVE & THINK DIFFERENTLY THAN THE OLDER AA AMERICANS. YOU ARE THE HOPE AND CHANGE. MAKE OBAMA THE NEXT AMERICAN PRESIDENT!!!

DEAR BLACK AMERICANS,

After all of these years and all we have been through together, we think it's appropriate for us to show our gratitude for all you have done for us. We have chastised you, criticized you, punished you, and in some cases even apologized to you, but we have never formally nor publicly thanked you for your never-ending allegiance and support to our cause.

This is our open letter of thanks. We will always be in your debt to you for your labor. You built this country and were responsible for the great wealth we still enjoy today. Upon your backs, laden with the stripes we sometimes had to apply for disciplinary reasons, you carried our nation.

We thank you for your diligence and your tenacity. Even when we refused to allow you to even walk in our shadows, you followed close behind believing that someday we would accept you and treat you like men and women. We publicly acknowledged Black people for raising our children, attending to our sick, and preparing our meals while we were occupied with the trappings of the good life.

Even during the time when we found pleasure in your women and enjoyment in seeing your men lynched, maimed and buried, some of you continued to watch over our belongings and us. We simply cannot thank you enough.

Your bravery on the battlefield, despite being classified as three-fifths of a man, was and still is outstanding. We often watched in awe as you went about your prescribed chores and assignments, sometimes laboring in the hot sun for 12 hours, to assist in realizing our dreams of wealth and good fortune.

Now that we control at least 90 percent of all of the resources and wealth of this nation, we have Black people to thank the most. We can only think of the sacrifices you and your families made to make it all possible.

You were there when it all began, and you are still with us today, protecting us from those Black people who have the tremerity to speak out against our past transgressions. Thank you for continuing to bring 95 percent of what you earn to our businesses.

Thanks for buying our Hilfigers, Karans, Nikes, and all the other brands you so adore. Your super-rich athletes, entertainers, intellectuals, and businesspersons (both legal and illegal) exchange most of their money for our cars, jewelry, homes, and clothing. What a windfall they have provided for us!

The less fortunate among you spend all they have at our neighborhood stores, enabling us to open even more stores. Sure, they complain about us, but they never do anything to hurt us economically. Allow us to thank you for not bogging yourself down with the business of ding business with your own people. WE can take care of that for you.

You just keep doing business with us. It's safer that way. Besides, everything you need, we make anyway, even Kente cloth. You just continue to dance, sing, and distrust and hate one another.

Have yourself a good time, and this time we'll take of you. It's the least we can do, considering all you've done for us. Heck, you deserve it, Black people. For all your labor, which created our wealth, for your resisting the messages of trouble making Blacks like Washington, Delany, Garvey, Bethune, Tubman, and Truth, for fighting and dying on our battlefields, we thank you.

And we really thank you for not reading about the many Black warriors that participated in the development of our great country. We thank you for keeping it hidden from younger generations. Thank you for not bringing such glorious deeds to our attention.

For allowing us to move into your neighborhoods, we will forever be grateful to you. For your unceasing desire to be near us and for hardly ever following through on your threats due to our lack of reciprocity and equity - we thank you so much.

We also appreciate your acquiescence to our political agendas, for abdicating your own economic self-sufficiency, and for working so diligently for the economic well-being of our people. You are real troopers.

And, even though the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments were written for you and many of your relatives died for the rights described therein, you did not resist when we changed those Black rights to civil rights and allowed virtually every other group to take advantage of them as well.

Black people, you are something else! Your dependence upon us to do the right thing is beyond our imagination, irrespective of what we do to you and the many promises we have made and broken. But, this time we will make it right, we promise. Trust us.

Tell you what. You don't need your own hotels. You can continue to stay in ours. You have no need for supermarkets when you can shop at ours 24 hours a day. Why should you even think about owning more banks? You have plenty now. And don't waste your energies trying to break into manufacturing. You worked hard enough in our fields.

Relax. Have a party. We'll sell you everything you need. And when you die, we'll even bury you at a discount. How's that for gratitude?

Finally, the best part. You went beyond the pale and turned over your children to us for their education. With what we have taught them, it's likely they will continue in a mode similar to the one you have followed for the past 45 years (since school desegregation).

When Mr. Lynch walked on the banks of the James River in 1712 and said he would make us a slave for 300 years, little did he realize the truth of his prediction. Just 13 more years and his promise will come to fruition. But with two generations of your children having gone through our education system, we can look forward to at least another 50 years of prosperity.

Things could not be better - it's all because of you. For all you have done, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Black-Americans. You're the best friends any group of people could ever have!

Sincerely,

All other Americans

@ leanne, why do you say "But, everyone be prepared for the Bossip lovers to fight back on WOAD. This link has been passed around the blogosphere... so more like J from the A will be in to cause drama."

the reason a lot of people are unhappy about the angelou post on bossip is because she was posted under that category due to her difference of opinion about the dem. candidates. so what if someone, lover of bossip or not, has a different opinion here? is everyone supposed to come to WAOD and just scratch each others backs and repeat the same sentiments? while posters here may not be icons in the community, why belittle their comments to "drama causing" just because it's different from yours? furthermore, why did you feel the need to try and bust Jfrom theA out about signing up on blogger to comment? this site (as i'm sure you know) doesn't allow anonymous comments...so what's your point?

dang! from what the premise of this site seems to be, some of the commenters can come off as being holier-than-thou or belittle other newcomers if they don't fall in line with what's being posted.....you just drove bossip's point home. and no, you didn't even call anyone a ho! disrespect doesn't always have to come is a loud or blatant package...sometimes it can be just as rude or intelligent, disrespectful nonetheless.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAND, to answer your question, he/she prolly came to this site to check it out cuz they may have never heard of it before (guessing)...just like a lot of folks here never heard of bossip. so if they were coming to defend bossip (did they say that?), um, what is your point? is there a rule agaist that? unless i missed the disclaimer here that "you should only agree with everything and everyone up in here, don't bother coming"...otherwise, they posted for the same reason you did....and let us not forget....supposedly people are all up in arms about the angelou post BECAUSE of her difference of opinion and a lot of folks found the RESPONSE to her differing opinion unacceptable. (you didn't say this but...) no one is any less intelligent because they go to bossip...shoooooooooot, you were spouting off posts left and right, so, hmmmmmmmmmm...oh, maybe you don't count cuz while you may have been a bossip reader AND commenter, you're a WAOD regular (?) so that covered you...smh
