As the saga continues behind Shawty Lo’s currently nixed struggle show All My Babies’ Mamas, the Atlanta native is finding support in Rush Limbaugh.

The conservative pundit has come to Lo’s defense, while attacking the Oxygen Network for pulling the plug on the show, All Hip Hop reports.

“The morality police, the old fuddy-duddies got in gear,” Limbaugh said of the public outcry over Lo, his truckload of offspring, and their mothers, have received  “The show was simply gonna’ show what it is in terms of this lifestyle and just gonna’ tell everybody what it is.

“Is it any wonder that the star of a show that happens to be Black and has the show pulled out from under him? Well I know none of these kids are more important than the president’s kids, but they’re important to Shawty.”

Whatever that even means.

An online petition was started calling for Oxygen to end the show ahead of its actual premiere date. It has been seen as contributing to negative depictions of Black people on reality TV in that All My Babies’ Mamas may inadvertently glorify a stereotype within the community.

Oxygen opted not to continue with the show after they “reviewed casting” of the program, but vowed to continue “to develop compelling content that resonates” that “drives the cultural conversation” among their female viewers.

Lo has since started his own (ridiculous) petition begging that Oxygen re-think their decision on grounds that the show is essentially keeping his 11 children off welfare.

Apparently he’s never heard of getting a real job, rather than depending on reality TV cameras to put food in his children’s mouths.
