Boycott Breakfast Club – Transgender, Lil Duval

Lil Duval’s comments during a recent Breakfast Club interview has people boycotting the radio show.  The comedian said that he would kill a transgender person if the individual tricked him into sleeping with him.  Charlamagne laughed at Duval but did tell him that he couldn’t say that because it would be a hate crime.

DJ Envy and Angela Yee were laughing.  Each time we think we’re making progress something like this happens.  Transgender rights are human rights, there is no separation.  You’re free to think anyway you want but once you share your ignorant mindset with the world you will be held accountable.

The timing of news these days is amazing.  R. Kelly and Usher made headlines within days of each other and now it’s Bobby Valentino and Lil Duval.  The tweet below explains that the same individuals who are dragging Duval were laughing at Bobby V.

The tweet above makes sense but that doesn’t mean Duval shouldn’t be called out for his ignorant comments.  We all need to check ourselves to make sure we’re not judging others.
