Basketball Wives‘ Evelyn Lozada is suing fellow cast member Ogom “OG” Chijindu for defamation after OG called her a “racist bigot!” Apparently the two have big beef, and OG was responding to a post that Evelyn dropped back on September 11th saying, “Nobody watches you harder than the people that can’t stand you.” Along with it, Evelyn posted a gif of an orangutan flapping its mouth. See OG’s response on twitter…

As you can see, OG did call Evelyn a “racist bigot,” but to prove a case of defamation one has to prove the accused is lying. Evelyn did post a yapping orangutan in reference to her detractors, and though she didn’t tag anyone in particular, she did drop the post.
Using animals, particularly monkeys, to represent black people is one of the oldest and most recognized forms of racial attack there is. It should be noted that Evelyn has taken the nasty snap down. If she did nothing wrong, why take the post down?
Evelyn says this episode has cost her lots of endorsement money, so she wants OG Chijindu to pay up! We’ll see how it all goes – until the next time it drips.
