Mona Scott Young shocked some folks when she decided to cast gay black couple Miles and Milan on the current season of “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood,” but the move was a smart one considering the ratings have been strong and the couple is all anyone can talk about in the media.

However, not everyone is happy with the move.

A gay writer for the Huffington Post seems to think Mona casting Miles and Milan was a disrespectful blow to the gay community.

  1. I understand what he’s saying about the stereotypical nature of that relationship, but unfortunately, that’s an everyday occurrence in our black communities. Much as I loathe Mona, she showed a facet of black love that has caused bkack women to have the highest incidences of HIV, and it needs to be talked about and exposed. These DL men are killing us women….it’s that simple.

  2. He makes some good points but like Jess said, Miles and Milan chose that angle to go with. Miles was on the down low. Can’t blame Mona for that.

  3. In my opinion, the scene where Miles came out to his family members was very disrespectful to the gay community. The fake cries of “I don’t know what’s wrong with me” and “I don’t know why I have these feelings” completely turned me off. Their relationship, as with all the others, isn’t sincere and is very much so scripted. However, I took that personal with the knowledge of how some of my own male friends have felt while questioning their sexuality and finally coming out to their friends and families once secure with their preference. It further confirmed why I don’t watch this show on a regular basis.

  4. How the f-ck is this Mona’s fault? These men are grown. Ain’t nobody making their thirsty a-ses do a damn thing. Get the f-ck outta here.

  5. Mona been representing people, specifically the blk community and especially blk women, poorly for years. Now he cares because herstereotyped show has finally hit his type of black. Well now. Welcome to the party.

  6. Man he brought up some points I didn’t even consider. So I agree with D. Val because they really are making it seem like being gay is wrong. Miles crying and asking what’s wrong with him was a blow to the gay community and I say that as someone who is not even gay. Gays have been working diligently to be seen as equals and here these two go making it seem like it’s a disease again. But what we have to remember is Mona doesn’t make any of these people do anything. She simply gives them a platform to make money from their messiness. He needs to be calling out Miles and Milan instead because they are loving every second of the attention they’re getting.

  7. I really feel like Mona is just using this gay couple to fix her image and make it seem like LHH is socially conscious now. And this writer sees right through her.

  8. I actually kind of agree with this. The tone of their storyline has been kind of anti-gay. And I’m really tired of talking about down low men. I think if we focused on not being so anti-gay in the black community, then it would stop men from being down low in the first place. But that’s just me.
