On the latest episode of Revolt's social commentary show, State of the Culture, Joe Budden got into a heated argument with co-host, Scottie Beam over Brittany Renner's salacious exposé, detailing her riveting conquests with many celebrities including Trey Songz, Lil Uzi and Drake. Prior to the full episode's release, the former emcee posted a snippet of their debate.
This misogynistic clip sparked a social war among feminists
Budden, clearly refuting her point, yells "When a man is doing f**k sh*t and you wanna kill all the men, you wanna lock up all them men... you don't wanna do nothing to women. That is my problem with this fake women empowerment bullshit. Women empowerment is empowering women, which means picking them up when they are wrong. It's not sugar-coating and co-signing all of the bullshit that women do and that's what you do."
Confused, Scottie inquires about "what's so wrong with the tell-all" when men have been rapping about the same thing for years. Joe declares, "Boy, she hates men. Who hurt you?" The point she was trying to make was regarding the double standard about those who "make excuses for men" and refuse to open the same conversations surrounding men.
Some denounced Scottie's point to "hold men equally accountable," as expected, but many defended her at all costs
One man even attempted to claim men exposing women in music was for "song purposes only"
At the end of the day, use protection and discretion while refuting the double standard. Watch the full segment below
