Irv Gotti Defends Controversial Lynching Scene In ‘Tales’


(AllHiphop Rumors) The first episode of Irv Gotti’s BET Show ‘Tales’ was packed with all kinds of shockers and plot twists.

As if Brody Jenner hanging from a tree, lynched, wasn’t enough, the entire episode flipped society and it’s racism and discrimination.

The first episode was based on N.W.A.’s “F- tha Police” lyrics, but producers flipped the races.

The violent and discriminatory cops as well as the rich people were all black. The white people were switched to be the minority living in the projects.

Irv is taking Hip Hop songs and turning them into episodes. Apparently Irv Gotti chose to make the first episode the way he did in hopes that white people would understand the problems still existing in our society, if these things were done to white people.

Irv wanted white people and other races to have a little bit more compassion when innocent black people get shot and killed.

What did you think about the series and the lynching part?

“I wanted to explain this scene. I put it in the ending Riot scene at the end with D’Angelo “How Does It Feel” playing. Because I wanted to show in reverse. What Hollywood always shows Black People. Reminds us of the fact that our ancestors Hung from a Tree. So it goes with the whole Race Reversal Vibe of the episode. And who did I call to get hung. MY F###### BROTHER. @brodyjenner who was totally down for what I was trying do. And the message I was trying to get across. Which by the way. Is a message that what’s wrong is wrong. Doesn’t matter if someone is Black. White. Spanish. Indian. Asian. What’s wrong is wrong. And these cops need to get PUNISHED. For killing innocent people. So maybe seeing it done to White People. In this FICTIONALIZE piece. And seeing these things done to them. Maybe people will have a lil more compassion when 12 year old Tamir Rice gets gunned down. Or Philando Castillo gets killed for nothing. Or Alton Sterling and Eric Gardner. Trayvon Martin. The list is too long and needs to stop. So I thank Brody Jenner. And my brother @paul_smenus NICK CASSAVETE. Who portrayed Rodney King. I hope everyone got the message. I really want everyone to get emotional about what they seen. And remember. None of the actors got killed in this fictionalized piece. But I can continue to name the black people that are really dead. I believe in this world we in. I believe the cool people outweighs the racist m############. So that is what I tried to do. Hope you guys get it. #talesonbet #tidal #visionaryideas #hiphopculturedtv,” posted Irv.
