Oprah Drops BeBe From Show: Criticism centers on his domestic violence charges.

There are 24 comments on the www.eurweb.com story from Nov 6, 2009, titled Oprah Drops BeBe From Show: Criticism centers on his domestic violence charges.. In it, www.eurweb.com reports that:

*Oprah Winfrey has removed gospel singer BeBe Winans from her show's "karaoke challenge" until charges against him for allegedly pushing his ex-wife to the ground are resolved.

Winans appeared on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" last week to discuss the selection of contestants for the season-long challenge. He was also seen surprising some of the finalists with news they had made the cut.

Winfrey spokesman Don Halcombe said Thursday that Winans will be cut out of the karaoke segments entirely.

Winans was charged with misdemeanor domestic assault in a Feb. 13 incident, where Winans and his ex-wife Debra were allegedly arguing about their children. Winans has a court date set for Jan. 20.

As previously reported, Winfrey was criticized this week for including Winans after she had taken a strong stand against domestic violence earlier this year. She did a show on the topic when singer Chris Brown assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna. Winfrey said at the time: "Domestic violence is something that I wouldn't tolerate. Period."

status quo...

...The funny thing is that criminals are never those that commit workplace violence.

Workplace violence is committed by those with no criminal record...

Because those with criminal records can not find employment... So laws that would hold Oprah liable for Bebe's actions at work, should he ever become 'violent', never really are used..ever...

Of course Bebe is innocent until proven guilty, but in America you are guilty until proven innocent and Oprah's move here goes a long way in showing that fact...

It's just like this Army Officer that just shot and killed 13 and wounded 31 at Fort Hood, you think he had a criminal record prior? Of course not, but the military will not accept persons with criminal records that would never commit such acts...

,... the status quo is that people charged, or convicted of crimes become 'monsters' in America ostracized forever, when the next (workplace) rampage killer will be someone not charged with or convicted of a crime...

So in retrospect, certain criminal records shouldn't even be a determining factor for employment in America, and is only used in America to ensure the status quo...

If you are White, you would be selected for jury duty. The system loves racist Whites for jury duty, to ensure convictions against the targeted races...regardless of actual guilt or innocence....

Like I said, I'm sure the next workplace (rampage) killer will not have a criminal record... this man in Florida appears to have not had a record...

Thank you. I have an ex-wife as crazy as his, and she filed lie charges like this one against me 3 times---thanks to the cops and 3 different judges who saw it for what it was---child custody legal maneuvering, and all were dropped and I ended up with custody of the kids. Just because you lie doesn't mean the cops are always stupid, and the judges see thousands of these cases and know the difference.

Women can be such cu**s if you make them look bad.

Thats like asking would you rather have a punch to the face, or a kick to the balls. I'd prefer neither.
