Baller Alert Radio: The Culture Deserves It, featuring your lifestyle specialist Kenny Burns, with Ferrari Simmons and Su Solo, kicked off its 21st episode with a recap of the hottest topics and current events from the previous week.
In case you missed it, the hosts discussed Monique’s call for a Netflix boycott. The comedian made the declaration on Instagram, as she explained the disparities in pay between Amy Schumer, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle and herself. Although Monique was offered $500,000, her offer was much less than the other named comedians.
In turn, Burns questioned the motive. Why would the consumer boycott Netflix over Monique’s $500,000 offer, when they (the consumer) would never touch that type of money in life? What are your thoughts?
As the episode continued, the hosts jumped right into the Ciara controversy-walking in the spirit of the wife, instead of a girlfriend. While social media went into an uproar over Ciara’s opinion, the hosts agreed that the message is completely true. So, why is everyone attacking Ciara?
The hosts then touched on the Government shutdown, just before Simmons kicked off this week’s Baller Mail. Is marriage no longer about love? Is it just a fad? According to Su Solo, in some instances it is – but on the other hand, there are some people out there that still value the vows. However, Burns said in some instances the “fad” scenario, when men are getting married because they’ve been with the person for a long time, is a good thing. What do you think?
Su Solo went on to reveal this week’s comment creepin, featuring the one and only, Ms. Tina Lawson. Last week, while sharing her admiration for a mattress company, a fan tried to school Ms. Tina on Instagram. In response, Beyonce’s mother gathered the fan in a hurry. Don’t mess with Ms. Tina, okay!
To wrap the episode, Kenfucious shared a special message about compassion. “Compassion for others will allow you to walk in another person’s shoes while lifting their embarrassment, pain, suffering or discomfort. Learn to see outside of yourself. At some point, we all struggle to be who we are.”
