Actress Ashley Judd holds nothing back in her new memoir, All That is Bitter and Sweet. In an excerpt that ran on Radar Online, she writes that she has beef with awareness campaign YouthAIDS (where she serves as an ambassador) linking with Snoop Dogg and Diddy.

“YouthAIDS created hip public service announcements for TV and radio using popular local and international celebrities and athletes and was participating in the MTV World AIDS Day ‘Staying Alive’ concerts,” she wrote. “Along with other performers, YouthAIDS was supported by rap and hip-hop artists like Snoop Dogg and P. Diddy to spread the, who? Those names were a red flag. As far as I’m concerned, most rap and hip-hop music—with its rape culture and insanely abusive lyrics and depictions of girls and women as ‘hos’—is the contemporary soundtrack of misogyny.”
