Black Girls Rock is no laughing matter. It’s an empowerment organization and awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of women of color that are often overlooked by the mainstream media. Unfortunately, Nev Schulman, creator of the MTV show, “Catfish” tried to crack a joke and plug his show at the same time and the result was an epic fail.
“#BlackGirlsRock I totally agree. They also tend to #catfish a lot. Just sayin” said Nev on Twitter. It didn’t take long for the internet to collectively remind him that he was the first person to get catfished by a middle aged white woman pretending to be someone else.
“I am TIRED of the blatant disrespect of black women. On our night to shine too. Nev is cancelled” said @melaninbarbie
“So I see @NevSchulman joined the bash Black Woman club yesterday. It’s amazing to see how much people hate us. Openly. Consistently” added @LeslieMac
With his social media mentions in shambles, Nev realized the error in his ways. “Thank you to everyone who took the time to speak with me tonight and promote communication and understanding. Nothing but love and respect.”
@melaninporn for taking the time to help me understand some of the issues POC deal w/. Sorry to all I upset.”
Beauties, do you accept Nev‘s apology? Is there anymore he could have said or done to appear more empathetic?
