Hot Ghetto Mess Reality Show BET Premiere
"Hot Ghetto Mess', or HGM, is a new reality show premiering on BET on June 25. It will have six episodes, hosted by Charlie Murphy. The show will be split amongst BET street interviews and viewer submitted video clips.
It's an appropriate name, because the reality tv show is already causing a mess, reports Associated Press. Sponsors, including State Farm Insurance and Home Depot, have gotten so stirred up as to request that their ads be dropped before seeing the first episode of Hot Ghetto Mess.
The Hot Ghetto Mess reality show is based on a blog of the same name. The HotGhettoMess blog features pictures of mostly blacks in unflattering photos with unusual hairstyles and raunchy clothing. HotGhettoMess.com is founded by a Washington, D.C. lawyer named Jam Donaldson. Donaldson is also executive producer of the Hot Ghetto Mess television show.
What is causing such controversy? Mainly a group called 'What About Our Daughters' has complained that the Hot Ghetto Mess show promotes black people in a bad light. 'What About Our Daughters' is a blog committed to improving the public's image of black women.
BET says this isn't so. BET claims that the Hot Ghetto Mess reality show is a social commentary meant to involve viewers and cause people to open up and talk about important issues.
You know what they say- Any publicity is good publicity. Maybe that is BET's intent. Watch the Hot Ghetto Mess reality show if you want to see what all of the hullabaloo is about or check out the HGM blog.
