mona scott young*Hip Hop mogul Mona Scott-Young has received a lot of flack for her reality show series, “Love & Hip Hop” because of the show’s dramatics and depiction of African American women.

Though she’s agreed that at times the content isn’t always good, she said the show should continue to air.

In an interview with Hot 97, she responded to the backlash.

“What’s kind of annoying is the fact that there were tons of these shows before ‘Love & Hip Hop’ came along,” she said. “The problem is, I guess quote unquote, is that this was an actual good show that was popular and that people tuned in to see, so all of a sudden it’s garnering more attention…whatever people want to say, everybody got an opinion.”

“It is a big platform, there are a lot of young women tuning in to the show,” she continued. “But like everything in life, those young women have choices. The women on the shows have choices.”

“I don’t always agree with the choices that they make. Do I try to provide them with a platform to promote, leverage, take them to where they’re trying to go? Absolutely. Do I always agree or subscribe to how they choose to get there, no. But again, I’m not here to pass judgment.”
