SMH!! Actress Ashley Judd Calls Hip-Hop “Rape Culture”

“As far as I’m concerned, most rap and hip-hop music — with it’s rape culture and insanely abusive lyrics and depictions of girls and women as ‘ho’s’ — is the contemporary soundtrack of misogyny,” Ashley writes in her upcoming memoir, seen on Is this woman serious?? Is it because she is an abuse victim that she can just say these things? She names Snoop and Diddy in the book…..and how stereotypical, as any person that really has no knowledge of the genre can rattle those two names off and make a judgement based on a few videos they’ve seen of Sean and Calvin doing what they do best. But this same woman also points fingers at her own family, calling them out in the book as well. I believe she has some serious issues, and who is she to generalize hip-hop as a negative culture? If you don’t know about it, don’t speak on it. It’s America as a whole that is responsible for any of the pitfalls of our society. And if you believe otherwise…maybe you should turn down that Lil Wayne you’re inevitably bopping to on the Top 40 pop station and get yourself some culture. @MarisaMendez
