‘Love & Hip Hop: Miami’ star Young Hollywood says his life is in danger as a result of the anti-Black comments he made to Amara La Negra’s face on national television.
If you watched episode one of the show, the producer told Amanda she needs to be “more Beyoncé and less Macy Gray.” He then told her she couldn’t be “elegant” with an Afro and called her “Nutella Queen.”
Anyway, now he’s afraid and says he’s getting death threats.
“It’s a topic that a lot of people don’t talk about. Afro-Latinos,” he said. “I’m very well acquainted with the story, the history of my culture, where we come from… I understand history. I know. People think that I’m ignorant. I know my culture, but I’ve never been on TV.”
“I don’t know how to articulate my words,” he continued. “I was speaking with her as a one-on-one conversation. I wasn’t speaking to a community or at a society or taking an attack at it because at the end of the day, if that’s the conversation, I stand on the side of the people that are trying to crucify me for something that I said that’s part of entertainment.”
“I’m not racist at all. That’s insane,” he added. “I don’t feel like I should be getting the death threats that I’ve been receiving.”
You can see what he had to say below.
Oh — have you heard? Amara signed a multi-album record deal with BMG.
