Amid protest against airing the one-hour special, All My Babies’ Mamas, Oxygen decided to cancel the show.  The controversial reality program would have followed Atlanta rap artist Shawty Lo as he interacted with his 11 children from 10 different women. It was scheduled to air in the spring.   Due in large part to ColorOfChange.org collecting 40, 000 signatures and having several conversations with Oxygen Media executives helped shelved the reality special.   Oxygen informed the organization in an email that the show has been cancelled. “We thank Oxygen Media for taking this important step. The tremendous response from over 40,000 ColorOfChange.org members, coupled with national outrage from Black folks, sent a clear message that exploitative television shows like All My Babies’ Mamas are unacceptable.” ColorOfChange.org said in a press release.   “The airing of a reality show like All My Babies’ Mamas would have reinforced many of the stereotypes about Black men and women that have power to influence public policy,” the group went onto write. “Research shows that exploiting persistent racial stereotypes that marginalize Black Americans have real world consequences.”   It also must be said that The Parents Television Council voiced their concerns to not air All My Babies’ Mamas, urging its members to contact Oxygen about the show.
