Loni Love Says Black Men Aren’t Faithful Because of Slavery

Twitter users are not having it and quickly respond to Loni’s controversial remarks as one user urges the ‘Real’ co-host to ‘use your platform TO UPLIFT BLACK MEN not bash them.’

AceShowbizLoni Love doesn’t hesitate to express her opinion. In the latest episode of “The Real“, she called out black men for their inability to stay faithful to their partner.

Loni made the controversial remarks as they were talking about Joe Budden‘s comment on Kevin Hart‘s infidelity. “I don’t speak for the Black community by I do think that a lot of Black men, they really don’t know how to have true, faithful relationships,” Loni said. “They think because they have money, they have power, that they can treat women any kind of way.”

Co-host Jeannie Mai, who is happily dating rapper Jeezy, appeared to try to chim in to no avail. Meanwhile, Adrienne Bailon said, “I think sadly, in so many cultures, that is the whole machismo thing. That goes across the board.”

Loni, however, begged to differ. “No, it’s not across the board because what is happening is that we are still dealing with the point of slavery,” Loni continued. “And we are descendants of slavery and because our families were broken up, we still do not have an idea of how to have togetherness because our families were broken up.”

Twitter was not having it and quickly responded to Loni’s remarks. “Loni Love said all black men cheat due to generational trauma of slavery and broken homes, whilst laid up with her oppressor. Ma’am..,” one user tweeted.

“Loni Love really got on live TV & said that Black men specifically (in comparison to other races) have a problem with infidelity. She really doubled down on it too. I wish she wouldn’t have used her platform to spew misinformation from her personal experience to a white audience,” one other added. “It was incredibly irresponsible. Black public figures need to be very careful with how they use their platforms. We should know by now not to make sweeping generalizations, even jokingly, about our own people in front of mixed company. Shame on her for that.”

One viewer, meanwhile, urged Loni to “use your platform TO UPLIFT BLACK MEN not bash them. They go through enough already being black men. Its ppl like you who give us REAL sistas a bad name. Cause you got a Chad you think you made it. You should see how you look Mammie.”
