“All My Babies’ Mamas” TV show cancelled amid public outcry

Seems like rapper Shawty Lo won’t become a reality TV star anytime soon.

“All My Babies’ Mamas” — the Oxygen Media TV show featuring the rapper, his girlfriend, his 11 kids and their 10 mothers — has been cancelled, according to Fox News.

“As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special,” Oxygen said on Tuesday.

This news comes just a week after the 13-minute trailer was pulled from YouTube, though at the time, Oxygen still stood behind the show.

The show was slated for the spring, but was met with public outrage, including a Change.org petition calling the show offensive and asking for it to be cancelled. The petition gathered more than 37,000 signatures and now reads “Victory!”

“Your support of our coalition’s petition means that this moment in television history is your shared victory,” a statement on the petition page reads. “Please never forget the power that you have to lobby to create value in the world. Your overwhelming support has been heartfelt.”

The petition’s creator, Sabrina Lamb, hand-delivered the petition to the New York City office of Oxygen, according to the petition page.

Despite the failure of “All My Babies’ Mamas,” the network said it would “continue to develop compelling content that resonates with our young female viewers and drives the cultural conversation,” Fox also reported.
