BET Allegedly Bans Teairra Mari And Soulja Boy’s ”Sponsor” Video


I mean I would ban it too cuz the song sux !!!!!!!!!!!! But BET is banning for other reasons.”Sponoer” is being banned because the message that the song conveys is unacceptable. —> Thought this is true BET plays worst songs that conveys messages about hoes, strippers, money and many other things. The network has indeed banned the video according to Mari’s representatives are speaking out about the boycott saying:

“I was informed that 106 and Park, a source for African Americans to promote their music, have banned Teairra Mari’s song Sponsor and other projects from surfacing on their channel. No one else will report because they don’t want to put it on blast. I feel bad for the underdogs because they are not given a fair chance and its even worse when your own kind won’t promote you. What’s bad about Sponsor that overshadows any work that Lil Wayne, Ludacris, and many others have showcased on BET? Why is it, do you think, that booty shaking and such is allowed but a video by a woman encouraging others to make it is bad. Why is it that Lil Wayne can perform “Every Girl In the World” with his daughter on stage, but women artists have to be “appropriate”. I understand if they would at least let Teairra come on the show to explain the concept behind the song. It just seems like a shady business where people who have made it have certain control over those that haven’t through shady connections.I know people may say “well who checkin’ for…” but what if these people actually had a chance in the business if it wasn’t so shady?” I agree…
