Accusations of racism from Lil Scrappy were front and center earlier this week as the “Love and Hip Hop” star was highly upset after his daughter was passed over during a contest at the Nickelodeon Suites Resort in Orlando.
According to TMZ.com, Scrappy was at the resort’s pool with his 9-year-old daughter Emani and Momma Dee. The trio were there to take in a game where the resort’s staff calls kids up on stage for contests.
When the staff kept skipping over Emani and other black kids, Scrappy became furious, Momma Dee told TMZ. A video from the site shows the rapper confronting the host. Although it was hard to hear Scrappy, Momma Dee says he told the host, “”You need to pick my daughter. This is some racist-ass s**t.”
The person shooting the video, who voiced his support to TMZ, reinforced Scrappy’s stance in the situation.
After the host begs Scrappy to get off the stage, Momma Dee arrived to repeat the reality show fixture’s claim. Emani later came to push her father off the stage.
When asked about the situation, a rep for the resort told TMZ that Emani did participate in the show and that they don’t discriminate on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin..
