Petition

As a Christian faith-based company, there are times in which we feel the need to address the media, as it relates to the treatment of women, people of color, and the LGBTQIA community. This is one of those times. 

SIGN PETITION

On behalf of SMS Novel Christian Films and concerned individuals who are deeply troubled by the presence of rapper Noreaga on Revolt TV. We kindly request your attention and immediate action in addressing a matter of utmost importance regarding the content of Noreaga's 2011 song, "Scared Money."

 

Two of the most disturbing verses,

 

Noreaga: "I make (women) run threesomes..."

Meek Mill: "Have my n*ggaz, run into your house and rape your honey."

While this song is over 10 years ago, the rape lyrics have never been addressed, and, in fact, has been denied by rapper Meek Mill despite proof of lyrics and video. Due to the recent popularity of the podcast, Drink Champs, we feel a strong need for Revolt, and their promoters to have NORE address these rape lyrics against women, women of color, and the LGBTQIA community.

As advocates for social justice and the well-being of all individuals, we firmly believe that art should uplift, inspire, and contribute positively to society. However, the lyrics featured in "Scared Money" are not only offensive but also promote and verbalize rape as a revenge tactic against Black women during the commission of robbery and assault. Such content perpetuates harmful stereotypes, normalizes violence against women, and contributes to a culture that undermines the safety and dignity of Black women.

We recognize the importance of artistic freedom and creative expression but firmly assert that this freedom should not come at the expense of promoting hate speech, violence, or sexual assault. It is crucial for media platforms to take responsibility in ensuring that the content they showcase aligns with ethical standards, respects human rights, and does not perpetuate harm.

 

By allowing Noreaga to remain on Revolt TV, we fear that the network indirectly endorses and supports the message conveyed in "Scared Money." This sends a dangerous signal to viewers, especially impressionable young individuals, that it is acceptable to condone or even glorify violence against women. We believe that Revolt TV, as a prominent media platform, has a social responsibility to prioritize the well-being and safety of its viewers, particularly women who may be negatively affected by such content.

 

Therefore, we kindly request the following actions to be taken:

Immediate removal of Noreaga's presence and content from Revolt TV, including any promotional materials, music videos, and interviews.


A public statement addressing the concerns raised by this petition and clarifying Revolt TV's stance on promoting violence, particularly against women.

Implementation of stricter content guidelines and a more rigorous vetting process to prevent the dissemination of harmful and offensive content in the future.

We firmly believe that by taking a strong stance against the promotion of violence and advocating for responsible artistic expression, Revolt TV can reinforce its commitment to supporting positive and inclusive messages that empower marginalized communities.

We urge you to take this matter seriously and prioritize the safety and well-being of your viewers. We look forward to a prompt response regarding the actions that Revolt TV will take in response to this petition.

 

Thank you for your attention to this critical issue.
