Why I "Snitched" On Shay Johnson of Love and HIp Hop Atlanta

Well as some of you may or may not know Shay Johnson aka BUCKEEY  of Love and Hip Hip Atlanta and Flavor of love was issued a warrant by the Atlanta Police Department on May 19th 2014.
You May or may not be familiar with the show and that's fine because it's besides the point. but if you need a refresher click here.
I want to say that I am not a blogger but seeing as how so many bloggers relish in the coonish antics that are displayed I decided to just write it myself so forgive me in advance for the layout. I am a singer not a blogger.
Anyway May 18th while surfing the web as usual  I saw a video of Shay holding a ciroc bottle ( yes the vodka bottle ) in her hand, she tapped a woman on the shoulder and proceeded to hit the woman in the head with the bottle as hard as she could you can view the video below . warning it is graphic and blood is everywhere .
 

Sorry you had to see that but what I am about to say is very relevant to this video.
I was so enraged by the video of shay attacking the woman with a bottle and then continue the assault with her hands I decided right then and there enough was enough. I immediately contacted  The Atlanta Police Department via email and expressed my anger and frustration  you can see that message below as well.

Again some of you might be wondering what would possibly make me this upset to "Snitch" on Shay, Well if the video itself isn't convincing enough maybe what I have to say next will be .
The story of her assaulting this woman went viral  thus bringing more attention and celebrity status to shay and her horrible acts and that horrible tv show called Love and Hip Hop Atlanta . Can you imagine being the victim and watching your attacker get praised for maybe almost killing you , Can you imagine for 2 months sitting at home with a huge wound on your head while your attacker flies around the country collecting checks for lets face it not a single ounce of talent other than having sexual relationships with rappers and embarrassing herself on national tv. Yah I'm mad for her and I'm mad for any young woman who looks up to Shay and women like her.
What are we saying to young girls ? Well I think we are saying " Don't worry about going to school or getting an education or applying yourself towards anything that can sustain you for the rest of your life, Just go on tv have sex with a rapper or basketball player and then punch the first person you see in the face while filming it for the world to see"  Yah How sad and pathetic our community has become . Why are we putting up with this Bull crap?? Why is VH1 filming crimes and then not doing the right thing by letting the authorities know that a crime has been committed? What is next ?? Omg I don't even want to know.... I am sorry but it's one thing to slap and cuss someone out but to hit someone in the face with a glass bottle causing blood to spill out of someones head is just reaching an all time low.

In case you were wondering YES Vh1 was filming that day (2 months ago)  , they were filming for an upcoming episode which features Stevie J and Benzino's new club opening. The production company and producers did everything in their  power to protect Shay from being arrested and charged with the crime for the sake of not having the future episode ruined.  Had that been you or I , the police would of been knocking at our doors before we even got home....
If you are Mad at me for writing this you have to ask yourself why are you okay with it?  I am not okay with it and I refuse to be told that this is acceptable behavior and maybe that's because I might  be one of very few who actually have a soul left for other human beings. I am doing this to protect my son's generation and I am doing it because the victim deserves better. Period

  1. Seriously, what Shay did was wrong on all accounts; however who are you to go to the police to report this incident? You don't have all the information to be reporting anything. Did the victim file a complaint? Where you there to actually witness anything? If both of the answers are no, then guess what, you just bought her more fame. She could walk on this nd it would still be glorified. If you want to save ur son's generation then you should try a different method such as become an inspirational speaker. You coming forward just tells me that you want that fame nd attention that Shay is getting. This is nothing more than some hating ish. Again I do not agree with what she did; however I don't agree with what you did either. You are no better than she is for trying to so call "expose" her for her shame. Wake up sweetheart in today's time this is some uncle Tom a** bs. We as a ppl have always dealt with our own bs. Especially with the way these police are behaving nd actually being more violent than actual criminals. I get it, you may have been thinking that you are teaching your son some values but in the end it really looks like you are trying to gain fame. Not only did you expose her, you them capitalized on it by blogging about it. Now who is trying to glorify violence nd snitching (as you so eloquently put it).

    1. I don't understand why a black person is called an uncle Tom for doing what they feel is just. Would you feel the same if it were your sister, best friend, niece, aunt, or mother that was attacked? I understand that you're not defending the attack, but I don't understand your position on what she did to report it.

  2. The Law states that a person does not have to have charges pressed on them by the victime in order to found guilty .. read my blog I only mention being a singer once ... then take some time and look me up I been a SINGER FOR YEARS so I am only speaking truth... I am also a woman, I am also african american . I am also a mother . So singer or whatever else set to the side for a moment and I ask that you look at me as a person first. ( I do not have a day job I literally work as a singer and have for years) I think shay should be in jail . If someone would have cracked your sister or brother or a loved upside the head you would probably be singing a different tune. The reason I want people to know it was me is so that people can see NOT ALL BLACK PEOPLE AGREE with these antics. I wish shay well and I respect your opinion but it will not change the way I feel or keep me from talking about it. I want a dialogue to begin about how low the standards for praise are in the black community. You do on some level agree with what shay did because getting upset at THE ONE AND ONLY person who did something to alert the authorities of the crime isn't really doing anything. read in my blog where I talked about all the things I have accomplished ... yeah you won't find a single thing because it is besides the point . Define fame ... to me it means very well known and to be honest I am very well known and I don't need a blog about calling the cops to help me accomplish that. Hugs and love to you doll. Meditate it's good for the soul

  3. If That Was My Sister, Daughter, Friend or Whom Ever... I Would Have Wanted Someone To Do Something... Shay Could Have Killed That Young Lady With A Blow To The Head With That Full Bottle Of Ciroc. She deserves to go to jail & be sued for all the little money she has... Her behavior is despicable. We as black people only wants justice when its for our own family or friends.. But we need to speak out when its anyone.. Im Shakira you did what you did.. Some of these celebs think they are untouchable but for nonrelevant stars like Shay to carry out the way she does, deserves the book thrown at her. That young lady needs to press charges & sue her ass. Vh1 should also be held accountable too!!! For trying to keep a crime secret. If she would have killed the girl with that one blow!!! They would be singing a different tune as well!!! She needs to be removed from the show!!! Because she used an object to cause bodily harm that could have killed that young lady.

  4. Your involvement in this is ridiculous. An obvious attempt to draw attention to yourself by playing the "I'm outraged" card. Are you failing that bad in LA to resort to this?

    1. Ok becasue someone hitting someone in the head with a glass bottle is totally cool and I should just not feel anything when I see it. You are obviously bitter for whatever reason and that cool I still love you. If sticking up for the victim means some people are gonna claim I am trying to draw attention to myself well that is ok with me. As long as no one attacks me with a bottle scarring me for then I guess it's not the worse thing that could ever happen to me. To answer you question about LA . No I love LA , I love being surrounded by other people who work just as hard as I do. Peace and hugs. Meditate it's good for the soul

  5. I applaud you for speaking up. Too many people stay silent about these kinds of things, for fear of being labeled a "snitch". There needs to be a clear message sent that attacking people for ratings will not fly. Hell, if the damn production company covered for her, who would have spoken up for the victim, had you not done so? Have we forgotten about JUSTICE? Funny how people are in such an uproar over this, but I guarantee if this were there friend, sister, mother, cousin getting cracked in the head, they'd feel differently.

    1. THank you for your words. I love you. Yes VH1 is enslaving us again and Mona Scott young is helping them. Why does out community not understand what praise is for? Why are the standards for praise so low. Martin Luther King jr did not walk so that we could be cast on tv shows like Love and hip hop Atlanta . He walked so we could be respected as equals . We are losing . I am gonna do whatever I can to make Vh1 take responisibilty. I grew up watching VH1 and MTV ... Thank you for your words they mean so much to me.

    2. VH1 and Mona have set us back light years. If Martin or Malcolm were here they would be absolutely disgusted at the state of the black community. Basketball Wives, Love & Hip Hop, this is what our people call entertainment. Da Brat spent YEARS in prison for cracking a girl in the face with a bottle; as far as I'm concerned Shay deserves the same.

    3. Black people are making me want to revoke my black card. These THOT shows have set us back a hundred years. Forget what these people are saying. You did the right thing. This show depicts black women as being uneducated, unnatural, sexual objects...PRODUCED by a black woman. Reminds me of the africans that sold us into slavery. The women that support these shows live vicariously through these women. Mimi, a mother, proudly supports and commercializes a sex tape! I stopped watching because I cant support modern day cooning.

    2. Thank you Crystal I so appreciate the support ! Yes why do people who are not cast members of tv shows and celebs get to do horrible things and get praised and not have to go to jail ? It makes me sad for the victims it really does
