Shawty Lo's polarizing reality series 'All My Babies' Mamas' reportedly has been canceled by the Oxygen network. The Daily Beast reports that production of the show was shut down after an online petition and numerous outcries.
The ratchet series follows the Atlanta rapper as he handles raising 11 kids by 10 different women all in one big mansion. When a sizzle reel of the series hit the Internet, critics found the show insulting and racist to African-Americans.
As we previously reported, a former Georgia resident, Sabrina Lamb, posted an online petition to have the show removed from Oxygen's programming. So far, it has gathered 37,000 digital signatures. Despite the protest, the Atlanta rapper insists that he's a good father and provides for all of his children. "I take care of all my kids," he says. "It’s a lot of fathers [that] don’t take care of one; I gotta deal with 11."
Meanwhile, according to YBF, Shawty Lo's ex-girlfriend Jai Jai is reportedly pregnant by the rapper. The underground ATL raptress posted a pic of her baby bump on Twitter recently and it has everyone wondering if Lo and his female companions have heard of birth control. Jai Jai has yet to confirm if Lo is the father of her unborn child.
