I don’t listen to Rush Limbaugh enough to know whether he’s joking or not, but could the conservative radio show host really be defending rapper Shawty Lo?
Shawty is 32 and has 11 children with 10 different women. Oxygen was developing a special on the hip hop star, but they canceled the show caving in to pressure from the Parents Television Council.
“It’s not gonna air now because of a bunch of stuffed shirts, a bunch of prisses, a bunch of morality police,” Rush said on his national radio show.
“See? America just doesn’t have the guts to face up to what it’s become. America doesn’t want to look at itself in the mirror,” he added. Insult or supportive truth? You’re going to have to decide.
“So we were going to expand the definition of a family to include whatever people wanted it to be. Shawty just sharing the love. Shawty just sharing all of his love with 10 women and 11 babies. It was a show of love and devotion, how Shawty provides for all, and it’s being ripped right out from under him. I mean, who says that this is a marginalized existence”
The Rush slid in some zingers:
“Well, he was more than a sperm donor. I mean, Shawty, he’s a former drug dealer. That’s where he made his money. He’s a rapper now, lives in a mansion. I don’t know if he knows Jay-Z. I imagine he does”
Either way, Shawty’s camp is thrilled that a conservative white radio talk show host is helping his cause through his digs!
