Shawty Lo's 'All My Babies' Mammas' Has Been Canned, or Has It?

TV Network Oxygen has been working with and filming Shawty Lo's enormous family - eleven children from ten mothers. There has been uproar surrounding it with many people calling for it to be cancelled. It appeared, earlier on today that those people's wishes had come to fruition, but conflicting reports have made it difficult to tell which one is correct.

Last week Shawty spoke to MTV to defend his way of life: "You can hate all you want to... If I wasn't taking care of my kids then you would really dog me out, but I'm taking care of my kids, providing for my family. I don't know what else to say." He's making a fair point there really, no one should be judged for the extent of their family, surely only by the way they treat the members they have. But ColorOfChange had considered the premise of the show to be reinforcing black stereotypes, while Oxygen said that it was "not meant to be a stereotypical representation of everyday life for any one demographic or cross section of society." 

Anyway, the DailyBeast reported originally that the show had been cancelled. Later AllHipHop received information from an Oxygen rep saying that the rumour was a complete falsehood. However now, in a third turn of events, THR received a further statement confirming the initial reports: "As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special. We will continue to develop compelling content that resonates with our young female viewers and drives the cultural conversation." 

THR seems the most convincing to it looks like neither Shawty Lo or his family will be on TV any time soon.
