#CharlamagneThaGod, one of media’s most outspoken voices, is currently in hot water. However, this time the controversy isn’t surrounding something he said, but rather a resurfaced rape allegation that several want him held accountable for. Reports allege that nearly 20 years ago, #TheBreakfastClub host sexually assaulted a teenage girl at a party. He has denied these claims, but did plead guilty back then to contributing to the delinquency of a minor by providing the alcohol in an underage environment. #Charlamagne served three years probation and the assault charges were eventually dismissed due to lack of DNA evidence.
However, people aren’t letting it go that easily, and are looking to his famous friends to address the issue and admonish him publically. One of those such “friends” was #AngelaRye. #Rye, a frequent #BreakfastClub guest, was pressed by social media commenters to speak on the nature of his alleged crimes.
Beneath a photo of her recent #WomanEvolveConference panel appearance in #Denver, one commentator wrote, “#Angela are you going to speak on your friend Charlagmagne allegedly drugging then raping a 15-year-old girl years ago. I know you speak up for black women being respected but for some reason your kinda quiet on this subject. I hope you don’t let it slide and hope for it to go away…..I’m just thinking out loud.” (swipe 4 Angela's response ) #TheSavageRoom #Savage
