Janet Mock Speaks Out Following Charlamagne tha God's Controversial Morning Show

01 Août 2017

Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee could be seen laughing before telling the comedian he should not use that term to describe transgender people.

"We are not a joke!" the hecklers shouted during his conversation with MSNBC at the event. "Trans people are not a joke!" the activists can be heard saying.

On Friday "comedian" Lil Duval (born Roland Powell) told listeners on Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club that he would murder a woman he was having sex with if he found out she was transgender.

Writer and transgender rights activist Janet Mock penned an essay for Allure published this morning (July 31) to address the comments along with her own guest spot on a July 18 episode of Breakfast Club, where she joined the hosts to discuss her new memoir, Surpassing Certainty.

Charlamagne's appearance at Politicon was interrupted by transgender advocates shouting that they would be boycotting the Breakfast Club in the future.

"Nope. That nigga doing his thing ... ain't finna get me", Lil Duval said.

"This might sound messed up, and I don't care.She dying".

A few days later, comedian Lil' Duval made an appearance and the topic of transgender women came up.

Charlamagne then warned the Grow House star that what he was suggesting could be considered a hate crime. "Their fragile masculinity would not allow them to recognize a simple truth: I am an accomplished, lovely black trans woman".

Mock called the comments "deplorable rhetoric", and noted that this year alone, there have been at least 15 reported deaths of trans women of color, according to GLAAD. Just so we are all clear: "On a black program that often advocates for the safety and lives of black people, its hosts laughed as their guest advocated for the murder of black trans women who are black people, too!".

Cox responded to Duval's comments by explaining how detrimental they are to the transgender community. And as long as you've got people like Duval on the radio, and as long as you've got the government we've got, we're going to have to fight back against the idea that our lives are jokes for what feels like the foreseeable future.
