The Right To Remain Ratchet: Fans Boycott Evelyn Lozada For Being A Bully + Star Jones Goes Off On BBW

Evelyn Lozada may not be as charismatic and loved and she may think. Clutch magazine has caught wind of a petition launched by Change.org writer Alexis M. leveled against Basketball Wives star for her alleged bad behavior. 

The petition states:

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.

Call or write Viacom who owns VH1. Let your voice be heard!

Address: 1515 Broadway, New York, New York 10036, U.S.A.
Telephone: (212) 258-6000
Fax: (212) 258-6464

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.

Thus far, over 1000 fans of the reality star have signed the series. One fan named Carolyn Martin wrote on the site holding the petition:

I have no respect for bullies and women who believe acting ignorant is cool. He (Ocho) has young children, and this woman has thrown glasses, bottles and ran across a table like she’s a part of a wild animal park, will she put on her fake smile and act the proper stepmom? Too late, she’s already shown her true colors and they are ugly. She deserves no show.

Interestingly enough this actually isn’t the first time fans have taken a stand against Evelyn. The petition also asks viewers to call and write Viacom in order to stop the release of “Ev & Ocho,” Evelyn’s spinoff show with fiance Chad OchoCinco. And on Lozada’s very own Web site there was an outpouring of “girl, grow up” sentiments left under one of her blog posts.

And to add fuel to the fire, former “The View” co-host Star Jones went on a twitter rant about the ladies of Baskeball Wives.  (For those of you not keeping up, this likely has to do with the fact that her ex-husband, Al Reynolds, was on the show as the girl’s BFF).  

Star went on her rant saying:

“It may be ‘comfortable’ to be quiet when women of color slap the crap out of each other & run across tables barefoot, but #ENOUGHisENOUGH.”

“About to put together a group of sisters to finally ‘tell the truth’ about the image of women of color in the media.”

She continued:

“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.

…little black girls deserve more than what we’re giving! It sickens me @lov3lylina85 when young sis think that behavior is acceptable. U can’t get a REAL JOB acting like an animal.”

Guess Star’s not a fan… to say the least.
