Oxygen won't air 'All My Babies' Mamas' with rapper Shawty Lo

Oxygen has decided not to move forward with developing a reality special that considered featuring a rapper and the 10 women he had 11 children with.

Called "All My Babies' Mamas," the hour-long special in development would potentially follow rapper Shawty Lo's unconventional family life and his interactions with his super-sized clan. Shawty Lo and his family weren't the only parties in consideration for casting.

But in a statement to CNN, Oxygen said that "All My Babies' Mamas" is no longer in development.

“As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special," Oxygen said. "We will continue to develop compelling content that resonates with our young female viewers and drives the cultural conversation.”

The program received a hailstorm of negative press since it was announced just before the New Year that the network had ordered the unscripted special, with critics calling the show racist and exploitative.

A Change.org petition to cancel the show received 37,291 supporters at the time of this post, while a petition hosted by the Color of Change organization received a reported 40,000-plus signatures.

Initially, Oxygen stood against the criticism. In a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, the network said the special wasn't "meant to be a stereotypical representation of everyday life for any one demographic or cross section of society ... It is a look at one unique family and their complicated, intertwined life. Oxygen Media’s diverse team of creative executives will continue developing the show with this point of view.”

That, however, has since ceased.

Color of Change is championing that decision, one that the organization said in a statement came after "multiple conversations with Oxygen Media executives."

"We thank Oxygen Media for taking this important step. The tremendous response from over 40,000 ColorOfChange.org members, coupled with national outrage from Black folks, sent a clear message that exploitative television shows like 'All My Babies' Mamas' are unacceptable," Color of Change told CNN. "The airing of a reality show like 'All My Babies' Mamas' would have reinforced many of the stereotypes about Black men and women that have power to influence public policy. Research shows that exploiting persistent racial stereotypes that marginalize Black Americans have real world consequences."

      Have you considered that the racial disparity exits with procreation because statistically because black men use condoms less frequently than most other demographics?

  3. Shawty Lo has a tiny thang

    This guy is only 5'6" with very small hands, so draw your conclusions ladies. Standing in front of a magnum sign is a joke. Not only does a guy with 11 kids not wear condoms (ever) but a magnum would slide right off his shawty manhood anyway. Hard to be a gangsta when your junk is only 3 inches long.

    Most Americans should be highly insulted , (and concerned), that some networks think so many of us want to watch the ridiculous shows actually on or planned, as this one. I'm sure Shawty Lo would not have any problem being paid lots of money to be on a TV show about his man whoring and disrespect for women, (although I guess they didn't mind). Why does someone's shameful behavior become an idea for a TV series? Are there really that many people that DO want to watch this kind of stuff? Stories about life with many children is not a new concept for a TV show as there have been a few already. Even though they didn't interest me at least they were traditional situations. Somebody, help us all!

      The difference between redneck and ghetto is a redneck person can feed their family by killing some meat, raising animals to eat and growing food to eat. Also most rednecks work. A ghetto person does not work and relies on the government to provide for their family.

    In the meantime, black on black crime is soaring. Black unemployment is well above the national average. Blacks are dropping out of school at higher percentages than any other race. Before you worry about this clown and his 11 kids by 10 different mothers (jewels in the crown), get your own house in order...

    I will go on record, without having any prior knowledge, and bet that some of those 10 different mothers also have more than one other kid with more than one other father. Breakdown of the family, breakdown of morals, complete destruction of personal responsibilities...

    People under 30 are not racist? Be nice if that was true. There would be hope for this world whose heart grows colder day by day.

      Perhaps those 10 women would've done well to look for qualities of a good husband and father rather than his fashion sense. Nowadays NO ONE seems interested in anything other than physical gratification. Maybe that's part of why this country is in the shape that it's in.

    They finally did get one right.Having more kids than you can provide for is nothing to be proud of. Strutting around with gold teeth and a dozen kids from twelve different women is about as low life as you can get.

    This is absolutely the best news I’ve heard all day! I would even scream my excitement about this terrible show being cancelled, but I think I’d get a lot of odd looks from my DISH coworkers in the break room. LOL! The only person I really need to tell anyways is my girlfriend, since she was as hyped about this show as every other trashy reality show that she watches. I’m sure you’re scratching your head as to how I put up with her awful taste in TV, and it wasn’t easy until we upgraded to DISH’s Hopper. Since that DVR has three independent tuners, I can watch one of my shows while she gets her reality TV fix. I wasn’t ready for her time to be eaten up with this disgusting show though, so it’s nice to see that I won’t have to worry about seeing Shawty Lo on my TV screen!

    You all are a bunch of racist that just further polarize the race. CNN should stop posting articles like this and stop showing that awful black in America crap. Racism is for people 30 and over us young folks don't deal with it. I can't wait till all the old people die and the racism dies with them.

      I'm 30 years old myself, and if you think racism doesn't exist in the younger generations you are very jaded. We may be more subtle about it, but it is definitely prevalent.

      Well, if CNN showing the TRUTH makes people feel polarize that means RACISM exist. If it does NOT apply to you, why get upset about the shows being show. Maybe you do not like CNN showing these shows because they are a reflection of yourself. Racism exist and denying it is not going to make it go away.

    There's a show "Sister Wives" about a polygamist with multiple wives and kids with each of them. On for something like its 3rd season.

    • SMF

      Sister Wives is also a disgusting show which I refuse to see. However, at least the man in that show is committed to his women, violating the law in the process. In the case at hand, the "man" is not married to any of his women and technically not doing anything illegal. Perhaps this is an issue lawmakers should consider.

    For the many racist comments that are made on here, I'm glad the show didn't get put on television. Janewewa – Who cares if Honey Boo Boo is on tv. There are quite a few white people who wish that show wasn't on and the embarrassment they must be feeling from this white family being looked at as PWT. No one wants this crappy tv to continue. Black people had the good sense to vote and get it banned like we voted to get Obama back in office. Oh and as far as this MYTH about black fathers not taking care of their kids or making too many, there are plenty of white fathers that used tv to help take care of their sperm. Look at the show with the white guy married to 5-6 different women and 18-19 and counting. The many white cult groups who get white women in there cult and get them pregnant and have all of them go on welfare to help pay for those children. Never point a finger when you have more than one pointing in your own direction. Those who choose to look at one race in a negative way are those who are being raised to do so, with nothing on their minds but, hate, discrimination and racissm. It's not hard to hate and doesn't take much brain to hate. But, to learn about each other and our cultures might get you a degree in life and give you a better understanding of different people. This is and will always be the most feared word in the world. Knowledge.

      I find Honey Boo Boo and the Duggars embarrassing. I find this guy and his 10 "baby mamas" repugnant. Any show that holds up trashy ignorance and non-use of birth control as desirable virtues should not be aired on TV.

    • hey you wake up

      vote obama back in office once you wake up maybe you will realize that was the biggest mistake you mdae but you probably get foodstamps and everything paid for by the government thats why you love it so much but the truth is Obama is a dictator he signed the NDAA he signed the CYBERSECURITYACT he dropped our nukes to 1500 from 3000 while russia is stockpiling theirs he wants to ban legal guns owned by legal citizens but wants to give away our F16s to to the muslim brotherhood. He has done nothing to top north korea or iran from obtaining nuclear weapons he is financing our enemies while apologizing to iran for terrorist attacks they did to us. OH yea obamas great right. He let 4 american die in benghazi used a drone to kill an american born citizens overseas then used the same drone to kill his 16 yr old son who was at a bbq with friends this is stuff the liberal media will not tell you wake up obama is a marxist and you will see why very soon. Our dollar is collapsing obama has added more ferderal debt then all presidents combined including George W bush look up the statistics dont take my word for it our country is more divided then ever people love to blam bush for the deficit when we only had a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit under bush and even before we had that deficit Bush gave us a surpluss of 700 billion but people love to blame bush even though we had a terrorist attack

      There are many African Americans on TV. Look at OPRAH, Al Roker, Whoopi Goldberg, just to name a very few. I think the thing here is that they aren't allowing ignorant, trashiness on TV. And that is a blessing no matter what color the person is.

      SAYWHAT, give me a break. And if African American stop calling themselves African American, are thing going to get better and that will end racism? GIVE ME A BREAK. African Americans have been called BLack for years and many folks still looked down on them and discriminated against blacks. So stop the nonsense. African American can call themselves WHATEVER they want just like Asians, Italians, etc. If you are not racist, then a NAME that a group want to call themselves should not effect you, if the name does effect you, then YOU have issues.

Disgusting dogs who sleep with a bunch of women, expecting them to have abortions but claim they keep the baby for :his money" (this was a direct quote)? Is "US" people who cant even remember all their kids names? Is "us" people who do not want to show their kids a monogamous relationship with at least the healthy foundation of a string marriage built with two people who love each other? PLEASE DO NOT ASSOCIATE ME, SIMPLY BECAUSE WE SHARE THE SAME SKIN COLOR, with your "us" That "us" is a group of people I want nothing to do with.

      It really is not racism. It could be taken as stereotyping, but even that is a stretch. We have to learn to not take every situation personally. This is a man (black, white, asian, whatever) who is living an ignorant life.
