On the April 16th episode of the popular VH1 reality show, Crooks is seen slapping Williams, who according to her attorney, “sustained serious injuries and suffered pain, shock and mental anguish,” due to what they deem as the “negligent, reckless and careless” behavior of Miss Crooks.
Now, I personally do not watch “Basketabll Wives,” but I have to say that I love the fact that Jennifer has chosen to take this matter to court. It is this type of violence visited upon Williams that turned me off after watching Meeka Claxton be assaulted by Tami Roman on last season’s finale.
I wish I could get people to understand that when you support shows like this you support their message. When you tune in to watch grown women fight and misbehave, the industry then seeks to put out more of the same. By supporting ‘BW’ you are supporting Tami’s drunkenness, Evelyn’s bullying and Shaunie in her blatant disregard for the message she sends the world about women, black women in particular.
Turn “Basketball Wives” off and let Shaunie and the Gang know that they are real non muth f*ckn’ factors.
