UGGGGH. I guess when you’re in the news media like I am you have to get used to breaking bad news, but it is still something that is very difficult for me! I’m so sorry to have to be the one to tell you, but it looks like Oxygen has gone ahead and canceled All My Babies’ Mamas. From Deadline:

Oxygen Media has pulled the plug on the controversial reality special All My Babies’ Mamas as pressure mounted from Change.org, Parents Television Council and other organizations outraged over the show’s premise about rapper Shawty Lo, his 11 children and their 10 mothers. Author Sabrina Lamb started a petition on Change.org urging Oxygen to pull support for the show shortly after it was announced in December.

Whaaaaaaaaat? Whhhhyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeee?

“I am pleased that Oxygen Media has heard the outrage of over 37,000 consumers and shareholders who said, ‘enough is enough,’” Lamb said in a statement. “We will not support any network and advertiser which exploits the plight of children and targets young women with stereotypical, dangerous, unsafe messages.

UGH, CHANGE.ORG, YOU NEVER LET ANYONE HAVE ANY FUN EXPLOITING PEOPLE IN A SUCH AN UP-FRONT AND DISGUSTING WAY THAT SEEMS MORE LIKE A RISKY JOKE FROM, I DON’T KNOW, A NIGHTMARE VERSION OF 30 ROCK OR A BOOK THAT’S SET IN A DYSTOPIAN FUTURE BUT MAINLY FOCUSES ON HOW BOOKS DON’T EXIST AND TV IS JUST SHOWS ABOUT LITERALLY SHITTING ON PEOPLE OR WHATEVER, AS SO MUCH OF OUR (“ENTERTAINMENT”-BASED) WORLD TODAY DOES! (LET’S NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT “ENTERTAINMENT”-BASED BECAUSE WHO HAS THE TIME, HONESTLY?!) DANGIT, CHANGE.ORG! WE WERE ALL REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS JUST KIDDING I’M GOING TO GO BACK TO SLEEP, THIS WORLD IS TOO MUCH!

  1. Judging by the top photo, is this OUR generation’s Brady Bunch?

    “This is the story, of 11 babies…”

  2. The thing about this show is that I’m just really impressed that they got the plural possessive of “babies” right in the name.

  3. Go Shawty, it’s probably one of your kids or baby mamas birthday.

  4. Good to see that Change.org is choosing its targets so carefully.

  5. Dear television,
    Not everybody who wants a television show deserves a television show. Not everybody who gets a television show will benefit from that television show. Not everybody who watches a television show needs to watch that television show. Not every hour of every day of every life in every city needs to be documented.

    • They just wanted to document exactly how a guy can have unfathomable amounts of sexual partners while publicly declaring his general lack of size, or at least length. I get that.

  6. Frankly, 10 women with 11 babies seems like less of an exploitation of unsafe practices than one woman with 16 kids, or whatever the Duggars are up to now.

  7. I would suggest that change.org keep an eye on BET now…I have a feeling an old friend of theirs may reappear there. NEVER underestimate BET’s ability to embarass black people!

  8. BET rooted for Stephen in Django Unchained.
