Charlamagne Tha God and the rest of The Breakfast Club team welcomed Lil Duval to the set, with the comedian’s transphobic comments still at the front and center of the minds of critics and those offended. The radio host and his legal team has filed a lawsuit against Rolling Stone after the publication released an article with a headline implicating Charlamagne with adding his own transphobic stances.
TMZ exclusively reports:
The ‘Breakfast Club’ host fired off a legal letter to the magazine saying its July 31 article on Rollingstone.com, headlined … “Janet Mock on Charlamagne tha God’s Transphobic Comments,” is defamatory as hell since he didn’t make such comments.
Rolling Stone has since changed its headline to “Janet Mock Speaks Out Following Charlamagne tha God’s Controversial Morning Show.” But the DJ is still furious and he’s demanding an apology, full retraction and money for damage to his reputation.
Charlamagne was quick to remind Lil Duval that calling for the murder of transgender people is a hate crime immediately after the comments were made.
The outlet reached out to Rolling Stone for comment but has not reported any new developments.
