‘Basketball Wives’ Viewers Unearth New Evelyn Lozada Tweets / Star Calls Another Black Woman A Monkey

Published: Tuesday 22nd Oct 2019 by David

VH1’s refusal to issue a clear statement on its feelings towards Evelyn Lozada‘s colorism/featurism drama has incensed viewers of the show she stars in…‘Basketball Wives.’

The Reality TV royal has seen her brand take a major hit following her decision to place an image of a monkey beneath a comment targeted at an African woman and has learned that a number of the brands she represents are under pressure to cut her loose or face the threat of boycotts.

More trouble has emerged this week.

Full story below…


Lozada’s friend and co-star Shaunie O’Neal insisted that the image of the monkey wasn’t in reference to the Nigerian athlete OG Chijindu in a televised conversation with Marc Lamont Hill but was unable to silence the media storm the message sparked.

This, coupled with other questionable remarks Lozada made about OG’s appearance and her decision to give an Asian co-star the nickname “Ling Ling”, saw her face claims that she was flagrant racist.

She denied this claim…insisting that it is impossible for her to discriminate against African women because she identifies as an Afro-Latina woman.

Alas, tweets she published years before the drama kicked off are spelling trouble for her and may give execs at Khloe Kardashian’s ‘Good American’ clothing company (one of the brands she is affiliated with) cause to pause.

In a tweet published on January 26th 2012 the entertainer slammed her African-American co-star Jennifer Williams by suggesting that she secretly wanted to be a white woman.

In another message, when asked how if she would get a tattoo of her African-American ex-husband Chad Ochocinco, she joked that it would look like “a big black circle.”


Four years earlier, she likened his dark skin to the colour purple.

Comparing black skin to the purple is a considered a slur.

The damning tweets were unearthed by a growing group of people who seek to hold Lozada accountable for what they believe is colorist, racist and featurist behaviour.

Watch the videos below…

Twitter erupted…with some pointing out that this isn’t the first time Lozada has compared a black woman to a monkey.

    People who makes jokes like this aren’t used to being called out so it’s fascinating to watch how badly she’s handling this. She caused basketball wives Miami to be cancelled which is why Shaunie and Tami ran over to Basketball wives la and ruined it and now it looks like she’s about to ruin this too. Sad.

    There’s no way to deny it. Twice? And calling a darker skinned person purple?

    Evelyn is violent and classless… Thoroughly embarrassed her kids. I wonder why she’s a baby mama and never earned the title of being a wife. Shaunie upholds this disgusting bullying behavior and tries really hard to justify it.

    Evelyn’s remarks are unacceptable and she needs to make it right. But I forgot she doesn’t recognize her act, words or behavior, because she thinks her looks will carry her though. In reality these actions exposed her true feeling of women of all colors what she thinks of them. She made a mistake coming back to basketball wives thinking she’s still 20 years old. Just sit in it, because the truth will set you free.

    ALL of these women are too OLD to be acting like they DO! Jackie is a Grandmother always challenging someone with a fight when she needs to be with her family. Shaunie is the start of most confusion because of her EP position. Evelyn needs to just sit down and be a MOTHER! Jennifer needs to just walk away from the show; she is the FALL GUY. OG should have never been on the show!!!
    Tammy is a OLD BULLY!!!!!
    “A Show of CRAZY Old Women “

      Clearly Evelyn feels she is in position to do and say what she wants, especially since she is getting backed by the show and “her all a sudden NEW BESTIE” WHO TURNS A BLIND EYE N DEAF EAR TO THIS MESS YALL ALL DISGUSTING.@EVELYNLOZADA @SHAUNIEONEAL @VH1 I HOPE THE RATINGS DROP AND THEY PULL SHOW OFF AIR

    I say cancel BBW, cancel Evelyn AND cancel Shaunie ONealas she (Shaunie) is the pathetic reason that Evelyn feels she can debase our black sisters not to mention being cosigned by the “c*** club” Malaysia, Kristen, and yes Jackie!!! Please cancel this show.

    I am a dark skinned African American woman and I am also a fan of Evelyn Lozada. People are unfairly calling her a racist and a bigot based on OG’s rants. Basically, you had a group of women who ALL called each other horrific names! When CeCe said OG looked like an a**, why is she not racist. Why?! Because OG manipulated that situation to her advantage since she is trying to get her boyfriend into the NBA and wants Byron Scott to help. CeCe and Kristen are racist as well since they both called OG a m*****. And let’s face facts, OG does look unattractive at times in some things she wears. These women are paid to say, nasty, vile things to each other. So, why try to single out Evelyn? OG takes on everyone’s crusade and is trying to pick up where Tami left off. Tami is trying to clean up her reputation by leaving BBW, but we know a leopard never changes his spots. OG has been messy since day one, and to bring up personal family business on national television!! The she LIED as usual, saying Byron said she could tell his business. I do not feel sorry for OG, and she is always up to m***** tricks, so maybe that is why she is called a M*****.

      I’m team Lozada. However, OG is correct. In Lozada’s defense, light skin women get dogged by darker skinned ppl too. This is “in house”. We as Pan Africans would benefit from not insulting eachother. Also, don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Tami & Og have benefitted from the show’s antics. They should be more appreciative. & if Og loved her skin color so much, her hair style’s texture would reflect that more often.

    When ppl have this kind of behavior is usually unhappy with themselves,Whether its the inside or outside of your body. Its going to be a struggle. But for someone to condone evelyn behavior is even more sickening. I’ve been following. BBW since day 1. Evelyn discuss me. Im a dark skin woman. I embrace my beauty everyday EVERYDAY. But for someone to mock GOD’S creation is unacceptable for me. I As long as evelyn is on the show. I wont watch!!!!

    How much more does Evelyn have to do or say before you realize she’s no good for the show

  12. Linda Montgomery November 10, 2019

    I was very upset about this show.evelyn has showed so much disrespect for herself and woman for years.shaunie was told years ago to stop this show it would be her downfall.she says Evelyn is her friend.then be her friend and tell her this not all right. She says she is African latino.really seems to me she’s faking the funk. Wow

    Evelyn is in no way wrong. I’m a black woman aka a minority. We joke and laugh about other minority’s and dnt say you dont or haven’t because a real one will own up to their s***. Evelyn is also a minority sooooo what’s the issue. Now it would be totally different if these comments were coming from a white person. It’s not Evelyn’s fault that OG looks like a m***** and knows shes ugly and uses her anger and man body to express it. Let’s be real you guys.

  15. Ethel Williams November 10, 2019

    I don’t believe Evelyn she is veey racist and she is not Afro Latin she is Puerto Rican that something her ans Shaunie came up with whens news came out she racist and Ling Ling. REALLY

  16. Nbet November 10, 2019

    Lmao it seems like OG wrote this herself. OG is the bully, she knows she’s built like a man so she’s violent. Threatening to snap necks and break jaws. She’s aggressive af, no woman wants to fight a man and that’s why no one wanted her around, it has nothing to do with her being black especially on an all black cast. Also, it’s “former” athlete and that’s only if you consider women in lingerie athletes.

    Evelyn Lozoda, is such a sluty, gold digging, w****. She can’t talk about ANYONE AT ALL. That dumb, B****, new who Ocho, was before she even married him, that w****, was so DESPERATE , for a man until she was willing to let him cheat on her, as long as he told her about it. Now how STUPID, is that. It ain’t NOTHING, BLACK, about that MEXICAN W****, except that she likes BLACK D—K.
