MTV’s New Year’s ‘Resolutions for White Guys’ Slammed as ‘Racist,’ ‘Disgusting’

“Funny that MTV makes a video telling white guys to stop being racist yet it took them almost a decade to show black musicians on the channel,” Twitter user says

MTV released a video on Monday with advice for white men in the upcoming year — and users on social media were quick to slam the video as “racist” and “pathetic.”

In the video, a number of people look into the camera and tell viewers that white guys should “try to recognize that America was never great for anyone who wasn’t a white guy,” that they should stop bragging about being ‘woke’ and that no one should brag about having black friends.

The people in the video also mention Kanye West, Beyonce and the judge in the Stanford sexual assault case.

The response was predictably critical, with one Twitter user writing, “funny that MTV makes a video telling white guys to stop being racist yet it took them almost a decade to show black musicians on the channel.”

However, some defended the channel, with another user using the hashtag #GoAheadKeepProvingTheirPoint.

MTV has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
