Trailer pulled for reality show starring rapper who fathered ELEVEN children by TEN women after it is branded 'an attack on African-American families'

A yet-to-air reality show documenting a rapper, who has fathered eleven children by ten different women, has been slammed by critics who have branded it 'disgusting' and 'negative'.
All My Babies' Mamas, set to air this spring on the Oxygen network, follows Carlos 'Shawty Lo' Walker, 36, as he navigates family life in an affluent suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.
But after a preview of the one-hour, fly-on-the-wall hit the internet thousands of viewers called for it to be scrapped, with many suggesting it plays on racial stereotypes.

Controversial: Rapper Shawty Lo, pictured with eight of his 11 children (seated) and seven of the women that he fathered them with, as well as his 19-year-old girlfriend (left), are all set to star in a new TV show
A Change.org petition, which has more than 20,000 signatures, states that the show 'stereotypes and demeans black children, mothers and dads'.
New York-based Sabrina Lamb, who launched the initiative explains:'This is not just an attack on African-American parents and children....but all parents and children.

'As dysfunctional and violent as so-called reality shows are, could you ever imagine a one hour spectacle where 11 children are forced to witness their 10 unwed mothers clamor for financial support, emotional attention and sexual reward from Shawty-Lo, the apathetic ‘father’?'
Oxygen released a 13-minute trailer promoting the show in December, before production had been completed.

In the spotlight: Carlos Walker, better known by his stage name Shawty Lo, released his first solo rap album in 2008, but away from the music scene he is busy being a father to 11 children
The mother-of-one gives all of her fellow 'baby mamas' nicknames, such as 'jealous','the baby mama from hell' or 'shady baby mama'.
