Star Jones: Pushing Basketball Wives Boycott Over Jennifer Williams-Al Reynolds Relationship?

by at . Comments

A petition boycotting Basketball Wives and its many violent outbursts has garnered major support even as the show is reportedly being turned into a movie.

The creator of the petition, which targets Evelyn Lozada and her bullying ways, writes, "The violence on 'Basketball Wives' is horrible and disgraceful."

"Physical assaults, threats, verbal abuse, and harassment. VH1 is rewarding this behavior by giving Evelyn a spinoff. Don't reward negative behavior."

One rumor going around is that Star Jones is behind the boycott. Why?

Star's ex-husband, Al Reynolds, has been on the show lately, given his relationship with Jennifer Williams, something Jones probably doesn't appreciate.

Her vocal opinion about the show is not positive, but Star denies starting the Basketball Wives boycott campaign or even supporting it with her critiques.

"I was never encouraging anybody to boycott somebody's job," she said.

"That's not what I'm about. It just struck me really, really to the core that young girls were watching his example of women on TV and getting their self image."

Of course, Jones admits that she began talking about the boycott and the VH1 show's negativity on her social media accounts in hopes of fostering discussion.

It's unclear if this played a role in getting three Basketball Wives stars fired.
