Outrage Sparks Over Sexxy Red’s Inclusion

Questlove Receives Backlash for Adding Sexxy Red To Roots Picnic.

The announcement of Sexxy Red’s addition to the Roots Picnic lineup has sparked outrage among many.

There are questions surrounding Questlove’s decision to add rapper Sexy Red because of her explicit and sexually charged lyrics.

Some fans have taken to social media to express their disappointment and frustration. Citing concerns over the festival’s reputation and the message it may send to younger attendees.

Critics have also noted the inconsistency with Questlove’s previous statements about promoting inclusivity and positive messaging through music.

Many argue that including an artist like Sexxy Red goes against those principles. And undermines the festival’s commitment to celebrating diverse and talented musicians.

Sexxy Red is scheduled to perform during the Mann Center in Philadelphia picnic. Questlove announced on Monday, February 19, 2024.

Despite the backlash, supporters of Sexxy Red have defended the artist’s right to express themselves freely through their music.

According to Hip Hop DX, The Roots picnic has always included a diverse lineup of entertainers. And this year is no different. Those scheduled to perform include rapper Lil Wayne and Jill Scott.

Jill Scott and Lil Wayne are very different music artists. So, that should give you an idea of who performs at the picnic.
