Monica Claps Back at Racist Reporter Who Slammed Black People for Attending Country Music Awards

Published: Thursday 28th Apr 2022 by Rashad

‘Should’ve Known Better’ takes on a new meaning for GRAMMY-winning diva Monica as she put a reporter in his place for bad-mouthing African American attendees of the recently-aired CMT Music Awards.

As we reported here, the songstress was on hand at this year’s ceremony (April 11) to not only deliver a moving performance of ‘Pray’ alongside Jimmie Allen and Little Big Town but to also confirm she is hard-at-work on her first Country album.

And while her showing was met with rave reviews, one critic – reporter Patrick Howley – made headlines for his stinging disapproval of her appearance in general.

Look inside to see what he said and see how she responded to the hoopla.


Howley, a Right-wing political reporter whose polarizing commentary has landed him in headlines in the past, got a different kind of attention when he bemoaned the inclusion of African American attendees at this year’s CMT Music Awards.

“I don’t know who this Black guy is who’s hosting it. It’s supposed to be country music,” Patrick said in reference to actor Anthony Mackie. “No offense. I mean, y’all have Hip Hop and basketball. You know what I mean,” he said later.

His racist mockery didn’t stop there, however.

“There were so many Black people there,” he said (as seen in the video above). “Sorry to say, but so many Black celebrities who have nothing to do with country music and it’s like—why?”

Once his statements got to the desk of Monica, she wasted no time hitting back.

“I’ve never been more motivated.. Patrick Howley, although your feelings are likely shared by some, it’s NOT by the masses! I have an all star LEGENDARY team of true country artist that are currently working with me that would beg to differ ! Because of the genuine hearts of @lesliefram1 & @cmt … I shared the stage w/ @jimmieallen & @littlebigtown …This was the first of many times that you will see me! I see You caught that my skin is melanated, but you missed that it was tough,” she said. “I’m rooted in the word & built to last ! See you soon, or should I say “Welcome to Wakanda” gracefully bows w/ @anthonymackie

  6. WTF April 28, 2022

    Patrick Howley has a good point, white people have Country Music Awards and black people have BET. He said nothing wrong, people are to sensitive these days.

    • Monica Stan April 28, 2022

      No he doesn’t ugleeee. BET Awards ain’t segregated all are welcome. The pressed racists will continue to seethe.

      • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 April 28, 2022

        Do you not know what BET stands for?

      • Taz April 28, 2022

        Monica Stan didn’t lie. BET stands for Black Entertainment Television, not ONLY Black Entertainment Televsion. It was started because MTV, VH1 and others refused to play our music videos. Either way BET is very welcoming. Ask JoJo, Eminem, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran, Eminem and so many others. Know your history before trolling.

      • Honestly April 28, 2022

        @taz drag that dumb thing

      • Fancy BISH (Back To The Future 🤣) 👊🏽💎💋 April 28, 2022

        Ain’t nobody dragging me here you FOOL! How many times do white artists get criticized when they host or perform at the BET’s? Black people hate it.

    • F*ckYourOpinion April 28, 2022
