Former season 3 cast member Meeka Claxton is pissed that people want to boycott Basketball Wives now that Tami Roman has started bullying Kesha Nichols. Claxton doesn’t get why people are calling for a boycott of the show and asking for balance when Tami Roman physically assaulted her while they were in Rome during season 3. Claxton took to her blog to vent her frustrations.
Am I mad? No, more like I’m disappointed.
When I was attacked everyone thought it was funny. No one thought her actions were disgraceful. As a matter of fact the very same ladies (for lack of a better word) that are “hurt” by the backlash, joked about me being attacked. They laughed and even called me names for taking a stand against her.
I thought pressing charges was wack? Oooooh, I get it…it’s wack when it’s not you!
They all (except Royce) stood behind her, co-signing her actions. But now you want everyone to believe you want balance? As much as their hypocrisy bothers me, I expect it because now their actions threaten their money. So, I knew the crocodile tears weren’t far behind.
What really hurts me are all of the talk show hosts and journalists that are suddenly disturbed by what they are seeing. Taking stands, boycotting, signing petitions etc…Isn’t this what I contacted all of you about last year? I asked for your support, none of which I received. But now it’s a problem? So, it was ok for me to be physically assaulted? Where was all of this “Call To Action” last year? Am I less of a human being?
Meeka Claxton does have a point. We all thought it was hilarious when Tami Roman busted her all in the face in Rome last year, but now we are wanting to safe guard Kesha from the same treatment Meeka received? Sure, Meeka had an attitude, but much as these women say they are grown, they act like elementary school kids on the daily. What do you think about what Meeka said in her blog? Does urban culture owe Meeka Claxton an apology?
