The hosts of Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club blasted the New York Daily News on Wednesday (Mar 22) for publishing an article stating they were part of a “reverse discrimination” lawsuit involving their broadcasting partner Revolt TV.
“I’m not going to lie. When I got that post, I started laughing,” DJ Envy said. “I called Charlamagne and we were laughing like crazy.”
As previously reported, Revolt TV is being sued by five white men who allege the company discriminated against them because they weren’t “young, hip, and black.” However, the article posted by the New York Daily uses the Breakfast Club as “click bait” to draw in readers.
“White people are not welcome behind the scenes of a televised broadcast of Power 105.1’s ‘The Breakfast Club,” wrote Stephen Rex Brown in the opening paragraph.
Charalamagne the God responded by giving the publication a well-deserved “Donkey of the Day.” He also took to social media to address the matter.
“Salute to the New York Post, because they absolutely accurately reported this story. They didn’t use The Breakfast Club and Power 105.1 as clickbait. We’re not even in the lawsuit. We’re not even named as defendants in the lawsuit.”
Man this is hilarious to me. For the record they suing Revolt TV and talking about Revolt TV not Power 105 or "The Breakfast Club" but this article is still hilarious!!!! Lawsuit says "The white people got fired for not knowing the culture" I mean most executives at all these companies don't know the culture and need to be fired but that's not the point. I been laughing for 10 minutes straight. Please make the distinction between Revolt TV, Power 105 and the Breakfast Club we are not the same. Thanks. #BlackPrivilege
Damn @nydailynews using us for clicks. If the lawsuit says executives at @revolttv then why does the headline say "Power 105's The Breakfast Club" we are not named in this lawsuit. Diddy don't pay us enough to have our names slandered like this but anyway WHITE PEOPLE SUING FOR NOT KNOWING THE CULTURE. Is so damn funny to me. ???????????? I really can't stop laughing. #BlackPrivilege
