ROBO-HO CONTROVERSY CENTERS AROUND HOUSTON’S BEYONCE!

DID TMZ.COM CROSS THE LINE?


A Web site that keeps track of celebrity foul-ups isn’t backing down in the wake of criticism from civil rights activist Al Sharpton. Sharpton got on T-M-Z-dot-com’s case for using the word “robo-ho” to describe an outfit worn by Beyonce during the B-E-T Awards last month. But the Web site is not only refusing to apologize, it is ripping Sharpton for misrepresenting their intentions. In a posting on the site, T-M-Z notes that they called the outfit “robo-ho,” not the performer herself. And it says it has made similar statements about racy outfits worn by celebrities — no matter what race they were. In one case, the site says it jokingly used the term “ho” to describe Kid Rock — and he is neither black nor a woman.
