The gloves are off and Erica Mena has come out swinging. The very vocal Love & Hip Hop NY reality star is pissed at popular NYC radio personalities DJ Envy and Charlamagne the God. Why? On Friday, Charlamagne gave Erica’s fiance, Bow Wow (real name Shad Moss), the title of ‘Donkey of the Day‘ (on Power 105’s The Breakfast Club) for his recent comments about Empire.
Here’s the quick and dirty. Bow (who now is a regular on CSI: Cyber) did an interview with Global 14. In his interview some suggest that he implies that the show Empire perpetuates stereotypes for blacks. He explains:
When we were still filming Cyber episodes, Empire‘s first episode premiered. Fans were saying, ‘Man, you should have been on the show.’ But we all don’t rap or play basketball. We can do so many things. There are young African-Americans who are intelligent enough to work at the FBI. That’s what’s so bright. Hopefully, I can help start a new wave of young Black actors who don’t want to stereotype themselves.
