Hazel-E Calls Out Mona Scott Young

Recently, Mona Scott Young was in New York for Essence’s #BlackWomeninMusic showcase this past weekend. While on the red carpet, she was asked a question about how her shows are now addressing colorism. As recently reported, The Breakfast Club interviewed “Love and Hip Hop Miami” Star Amara La Negra, and Charlamagne Tha God questioned if her colorism struggles were in her head.

Mona Scott Young responded to the question, saying that contrary to what some believe, colorism exists in the African-American and Caribbean communities.

It surprises me that people are acting like, “What is colorism?”

Listen. We know, even within our own community… It’s not just in the Latino community. It’s in the African-American community… and the Caribbean community so it’s something we have to deal with. So this was something that I felt like bringing to the forefront, because if we don’t talk about something, how do we foster understanding?

Well, Hazel-E caught wind of the comment from Mona and felt disrespected by them. Earlier this year, Hazel-E and her boyfriend Rose Burgundy felt tons of backlash from their comments on Instagram from black women and the LGBT community. Hazel specifically talked negatively about dark skinned black women and Rose slammed gay people.

As a consequence for these actions, she and Rose were apparently fired from “Love and Hip Hop Hollywood.”

However, Hazel revealed in a now deleted Instagram post that she actually received a contract to sign for the upcoming season of LHHH and may appear on a future episode of “Fix My Life” with Iyanla Vanzant. She also called out Mona for not even having a conversation with her about the comments that were made.
