News flash for Star, I stopped watching the show long time ago. I could no longer stomach a group of petty, classless women fighting and degrading themselves on national television. And now, Star Jones is launching a campaign against it.
“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH.” “I’m about to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media,” she said.
Star made reference to a recent episode, where Jennifer Williams was slapped. Williams has decided to file suit against those involved, rather than responding with additional violence.
“And the thought that the woman from #BBW who was smacked doesn’t have the RIGHT to file assault charges is LUDICROUS! You NEVER give up your right not to have your ‘person’ intentionally assaulted unless you are participating in an agreed physical activity,” Star went on to write.
Star then issued a call to other women with platforms to support her movement.
“I’m asking all my high-profile, platform having conscientious sisters who STAND FOR SOMETHING to just say #ENOUGHisENOUGH & call folk out! Be mad. But think about what I said. WE ARE BETTER than that. You’re either part of the problem or part of the solution.”
So here it is CEO family: will you STOP watching the show?
