Ludacris Vs. Oprah Winfrey

Watch who you beef with, Luda. Didn't you read chappelletheory.com??

I've always felt a funny attitude coming from Oprah, towards hip-hop.. I remember a show 10 or 12 years ago where she spent the hour seething with disdain for Ice T, and that's usually the vibe I've gotten since. But I don't catch her show too often, if more regular viewers can offer evidence to the contrary please do.

Luda, Oprah.. Oprah, Luda

Ludacris has lashed out at Oprah Winfrey, after he was initially refused to appear on her prime time talk show, and then publicly lectured when he was finally allowed on the show...

“She edited out a lot of my comments while keeping her own in. Of course, it’s her show, but we were doing a show on racial discrimination and she gave me a hard time as a rapper when I came on there as an actor,” said Luda, real name Chris Bridges. “Initially, I wasn’t even invited on the show.”

“After the taping, she pulled me into a room and we had a five-minute conversation,” he continued. “What I got was that by having rappers on her show, she feels like she is empowering in them. It was like being at someone’s house who doesn’t really want you there.”

“I don’t see why [comedians] Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle, who I am huge fans of, it’s OK for them to go on Oprah. They speak the same language as I do, but they do it through comedy, so I guess that’s acceptable to her [Oprah]....”
