Racist Group Fifth Harmony's producer claims radio is blacklisting BOSS because of Obama namedrop
Radio is blackballing Fifth Harmony‘s fierce self-empowerment anthem “Bo$$” because the girls mention Michelle Obama in the lyrics — at least according to the song’s producer Wallpaper. “Regardless of the positive message some radio stations wont play @FifthHarmony BO$$ cus it has “Michelle Obama” in the lyrics,” he tweeted earlier today (August 20).
That was enough to mobilize outraged Harmonizers, who promptly got the hashtag #dontcensor5H trending worldwide. No stations have been named and shamed (as yet) but “Bo$$” is losing a little momentum at pop radio, so there could be something to it. Which is sad given the song’s inspirational message to get money and take charge of your life. See the hitmaker’s tweet and the best fan responses after the jump.
so stations can play songs that skinny shame but not songs that promote self confidence I DONT UNDERSTAND #dontcensor5h— sarah (@ayycamila) August 20, 2014
or maybe it's the fact that the song is currently #79 on the billboard hot 100 and peaked at #43. nobody is checking for them enough to blacklist lbr!
