According to reports from TMZ, Love & Hip Hop’s newest Miami cast member Young Hollywood is still under fire for his interactions with the beautiful Amara La Negra that occurred in the franchise’s premiere episode. Not only under fire on Twitter and everywhere else on the internet, but apparently the producer has been receiving all sorts of death threats following the incident.

Young Hollywood told the Afro-Latina singer that she should be   “more Beyoncé” and “less Macy Gray” and also stated that her afro was not “elegant” enough.  He also ridiculed her calling her the “Nutella Queen” because she identifies as an Afro-Latina.  He further makes jokes about her heritage asking,” Are you African? Or, is that just ’cause you have an afro?”

It should be noted that Young Hollywood is Latino himself.  However, since he is light skin he does not have to identify or deal with the discrimination as a Black Latino would.  Colorism is rampant in Latin America.

As Mr. Hollywood claimed before, he doesn’t deserve any backlash for the racist comments he made because he says he wasn’t speaking from a personal standpoint, but just for industry’s sake. He also says that Amara’s afro is a wig, so since it’s not her natural hair, he didn’t do anything wrong by asking her if she would get rid of it. He also claims to be very aware of Afro-Latinos, even though that was not the case on the episode of Love & Hip Hop…

Young Hollywood’s main concern in the exclusive video from TMZ is the fact that he’s getting death threats, and that one conversation is majorly effecting is personal life. Unsurprisingly, he doesn’t think his character should be under attack and claims he’s trying to bring light to a situation he didn’t think would blow up like it did.
