While appearing on Hot 107.9 in Atlanta, he spoke up about the critics saying, "They makin' their assumptions off a 13-minute trailer and this like the biggest news around the world right now and it's unbelievable."
He continued, "The show wasn't about, we finna be fightin'....My show is not about no negative; it's a positive. But if they wanna see the show, sign a petition."
For what it's worth, there's a new petition to get the show "green lighted" again (also on Change.org) and Shawty-Lo defended his life and his family saying,
"It's a lot of fathers don't take care of one; I gotta deal with 11. I gotta deal with nine girls and two boys.
Comin' up, we didn't have Thanksgiving, we didn't have Christmas, but if I had my father there, if I even had my mother there, I probably wouldn't have been that person I was in the streets."
