Lil Duval Has Always Been A Problem But Nobody Cared Until Now

Lil Duval

Lil Duval, known to most for being a not so funny comedian, has come under fire for his latest batch of fuckery. During an appearance on Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” on July 28, comedian Lil Duval said he would kill a sexual partner if he learned she was transgender. Lil Duval received backlash on Twitter following his comment.

Per DJ Envy, that was not known until a relationship started.

First, allow me to say that we have two TOTALLY FUCKED UP AND COMPLETELY DIFFERENT issues going on with this scenario. Only one will be addressed in this post though.

For the record, Lil Duval has ALWAYS been a fucking problem. ALWAYS.

His problematic and hateful behavior has only given people pause because THIS TIME his “jokes” targeted transwomen.  Lil Duval’s murder jokes officially became unfunny and this shit evolved into an urgent matter. Somebody ring the alarm!  

Everybody and their mother denounced this negro for his transphobic words.  He didn’t back down nor did he apologize. But why would he?

This pot has been boiling over for some time now. This isn’t Lil Duval’s first rodeo with reference to him talking about who he would kill but because transwomen weren’t his victims previously, nobody really gave a fuck. Nobody was appalled.  Where was the outrage in the black LGBTQ community when he said he would kill a  woman for turning down his proposal? It was just another day in the not so fucking good life of sisters. And muthafuckas were eerily silent. As if we, black women, don’t contend  with or lose our lives to male toxicity and fragility.

Lil Duval referenced rape victims as “lying bitches”. I don’t recall Janet Mock or Laverne Cox stepping forward to advocate for those victims or express to this dimwitted cocksucker that rape is traumatic and that the victims, often,  suffer from depression and even physical ailments. NOPE… I didn’t see not one fucking protest. Yet here WE are with a litany of complaints and petitions to dispose of this nigga- who has always been a problem for black women.  But because he has now become a problem for you, he deserves a special punishment.

Such shitty allies we have in all of you and I’m keeping score. My anger and disgust aren’t subsiding anytime soon and my fucks are becoming less and less.

    Hey Love. Only been familiar with him from last year where he starred in a hood movie I believe went straight to wood. So I did not know of his nastiness towards women. It seems a lot of our male black comics have a problem with women — specifically black women.

    My honest opinion on the matter is Janet Mock is owned an apology from The Breakfast Club being used as a prop for this bit against her community. Outside of that I believe his sentiment is shared with the silent majority.

      i 100% disagree that she was used as a prop! She came on there to promote her book and that she did. What bothers me is that people only want to comment that the trio laughed, but didn’t hear Charlemagne say that what Lil Duval said is a hate crime and that he can’t kill a transgendered for tricking him. Envy and Angela Yee chimed in and denounced his comments as well, but all people heard was them “Laugh. .

      What also bothers me that is that people made it seems like the Breakfast club gave him a platform to say that. They didn’t. Little known fact , Charlemagne is a HUGE supporter of the LGBTQ community and promotes them often on his show but I guess no one gives a shit about that..

        They want silence from non-trans people. And laughter at their group they see as a gesture to encourage violence coming their way. But the violence will always be there since the biological truth of who they are can never disappear no matter how authentic they can make their illusion.

    I think the primary reason for why his comments were picked up this time, is because he made them on this popular show. He himself is a nobody,… that’s why his previous disgusting comments didn’t get that much backlash or none at all, nobody was listening to him….

      Duval is far from a nobody. He has a LARGE following and his shows stay sold out.
      He’s VERY successful and one of the reasons why a lot of people many not know who he is, is because he doesn’t do a lot of viral videos nor does he allow any electronics at his shows. His sister is a lesbian who he makes it no secret that he doesn’t agree with.

    • Twitter isn’t popular?

    Excellent points. Transgender people are a “privilege victim status” group on the left. People will come to their defense as a way to ‘virtue signal’.
    (Virtue signalling is the expression or promotion of viewpoints that are especially valued within a social group, especially when this is done primarily to enhance the social standing of the speaker.)

    Lack of solidarity across different identities hurts us all. So, regardless of what subgroups with which I identify, if I am apathetic about the suffering of other Black people who are “different”, I am reducing our collective power. E.g. when there’s a religious hate crime but one shrugs because it’s not our faith. I don’t know whether or not Janet Mock has spoken up against crimes against cis Black women, but I recall she was on a panel with Bell Hooks about Black women. I’m a cis Black woman who’s in favor of respect for all our people, cis and trans. I am deeply appreciative of a young brother Adrian Xpression (Patreon, YouTube and his own website). He’s a cis gay Black man is very vocal in his support and defense of our folks. He routinely calls out anyone who disrespects cis Black women and shows us a lot of love. His activism isn’t limited and I respect that. I feel more connected to him than to a guy who professes a love for sisters but justifies disrespect based on how we dress, wear our hair, etc.
