Oscar Shame: Three 6 Mafia Violence on Trial

By Debbie Schlussel
Question: How many winners of the Oscar for “Best Original Song” incited violence and “stomping” of people?
Question 2: How many Oscar winners in any Academy Awards category incited violence and “stomping” of people?
Answer to Both: Just one. The Three 6 Mafia (whose members are Jordan “Juicy J” Houston, Paul “D.J. Paul” Beauregard and songwriter Cedric Coleman).
The “artists” who brought us the Oscar-winning, “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp,” apparently find it “Hard Out Here to Act Like Civilized Human Beings.”
You see, the three Memphis-based rappers who make up the rap group are being sued by one Ramone Williams, who says that at one of their concerts, he was injured after being thrown to the floor, hit with a chair, stomped on and kicked in the face. This happened while Three 6 performed another song from their stellar repertoire, “Let’s Start a Riot.” They apparently encouraged their concert audience to engage in the violence, which caused Williams a fractured jaw.

The classy Three 6 will be deposed in a Pittsburgh courtroom in April.
Oscar winners whose songs encourage violence and serious injury. What’s next–pro-terrorist movies getting Oscar nominations? Oops, they did that, this year (but thankfully, those lost).

I spent ten looong years as a city cop dealing with thugs like these. I had to get out to keep my sanity. The expressions on their faces tell the whole story. Grew up with no father in the home to keep their unruly butts in line.

Altamont…a few Who shows…damn near ALL headbanger shows…..
In MY 30-plus years of being on both sides of the stage i can tell you—THIS ain’t nothing new!!!
Lawrence Welk revivals are still a pretty safe bet though.

Hip-Hop – It’s more than just a “culture”; it’s a celebration of STUPIDITY!!
