The Daily Beast’s Allison Samuels reports multiple sources have revealed “Oxygen won’t let the new reality-TV series starring Shawty Lo see the light of day.”

The unscripted show titled “All My Babies’ Mamas,” was supposed to star rapper Shawty Lo, his 11 kids, and 10 different mothers. But critics said the show demeaned black children, mothers and fathers. 

Samuels notes the network hasn’t made any official announcements but she still stands by her sources:

Though the network denies it, Oxygen is expected to announce that All My Babies’ Mamas won’t ever see the light of day, according to my sources—and that’s a good thing.

A petition on Change.org that started two-weeks ago has close to 40,000 signatures. Sabrina Lamb—the New York based author that started the petition—said the show was an attack on parents of every color. Her petition pledged to “boycott any advertiser who chooses to support the show.”
