Fans of the VH1 hit reality show “Basketball Wives” have had it up to here with the violence and bully tactics of one of its standout members, the hot-headed Evelyn Lozada. After four seasons of constant bickering, verbal abuse, hitting and the flinging of objects at co-stars, a fan of the show, Alex M., started an online petition on Change.org, asking the show’s producers to not reward Lozada with a reality show spinoff for her circus animal antics.
The petition states:
This is not a hate petition against Evelyn Lozada. We simply will not support violence. It hurts to see violence amongst women on television for entertainment purposes. It is not ok for women to hit each other on TV.
Lozada, who is engaged to NFL player Chad Ochocinco will star in an upcoming reality show entitled, “EV and Ocho” on VH1. Thus far, the petition against Lozada’s mean behavior has garnered nearly 6,000 signatures.
On this current season Lozada has managed to get into screamfests with co-star Jennifer Williams. She also hit Williams on the head with a clutch purse and threw a wine bottle at castmate Kenya Bell. At another function, Lozada, who had been sitting diagonally across the table from Williams, became enraged when Williams made a comment about her assistant, Nia Crooks.
