So, I need to get something off my chest.
Every morning on my way to class/work, I flip flop around stations. So many of them are all playing the same things, so I try and search for something different. Upon my search, I found 105.1, and since I usually go to work for 9:30am, I end up listening to “The Breakfast Club.”
This afternoon, I heard a snippet from a recent segment they must have done, and one of these fine gentleman happened to be talking about Gabourey Sidibe, who is most famous for her role in “Precious.” He was referring to a poster she was featured in for her new movie “Tower Heist.” He says, and I quote:
"Leave the sexy poses to the sexy people."
The woman in the show starts to say how at she’s just probably happy that she got a good role in a movie. The two men start saying (in reference to her weight):
"A shrimp roll."
"A bread roll."
"A sushi roll."
and various other “rolls” they thought were funny.
And this isn’t the first time I’ve been upset with 105.1’s ”The Breakfast Club.” They have a whole section of their show, titled “Hoe Appreciation.” Granted, the female on the show says “It’s done in positivity” but really, when a woman calls another woman a hoe, and dedicates a whole ten minutes to talk about why she’s a hoe, that’s Horizontal Hostility. That is: "The result of people of targeted groups (such as women) believing, acting on, or enforcing the dominant system of discrimination and oppression" (Purchase College.)
They literately list on air all the men that female celebrities, like Amber Rose, have slept with. My mouth dropped, and I couldn’t believe that they could get away with talking like this on air, let alone that they haven’t been sued yet.
Just felt the need to get this out there.
