What's interesting about that is the fact that Judd's mammy, Naomi Judd has made some racist remarks in the past, so, it wouldn't surprise me if this broad has picked up on some of that.
Sadly, I love all of her movies, but I get a really bad feeling about this chick these days. She comes across as nasty in interviews and I always feel that "vibe" when there are black people involved.
Adding fuel to the fire, Judd wrote in her new memoir 'All That Is Bitter and Sweet' that rap is "rape culture."
"Along with other performers, YouthAIDS was supported by rap and hip-hop artists like Snoop Dogg and P. Diddy to spread the message...um, who? Those names were a red flag. As far as I'm concerned, most rap and hip-hop music -- with it's rape culture and insanely abusive lyrics and depictions of girls and women as 'ho's' -- is the contemporary soundtrack of misogyny. I believe that the social construction of gender -- the cultural beliefs and practices that divide the sexes and institutionalize and normalize the unequal treatment of girls and women, privilege the interests of boys and men, and, most nefariously, incessantly sexualize girls and women -- is the root cause of poverty and suffering around the world."Rapper ?uestlove from The Roots, who also serves as the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon was quite observant as well, saying:
"hmmm. at least i got my answer as to why ash judd didn't give us so much as a nod on her last visit. im a criminal,"
This feels different than Oprah's stand a few years back, this feels racist - but I've been wrong before.
