‘All My Babies’ Mamas’ Canceled

Protests have led to the Oxygen network to pull the plug on their reality special “All My Babies’ Mamas.”
Oxygen made the decision after receiving protests from such organizations as ColorOfChange.org and the Parents’ Television Council for reinforcing stereotypes about black men. The special was to follow rapper Shawty Lo and his family of 10 children by 11 different women.

A spokesperson for Oxygen issued a statement Tuesday saying, “As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special. We will continue to develop compelling content that resonates with our young female viewers and drives the cultural conversation.”

ColorOfChange appluded the network’s decision to drop the special, and issued its own statement, which said, “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.”
