I've only just watched this video. When I heard about it I thought it's possible that people may have taken Sheryl's comments out of context, you know, with her being a comedian and everything; however, after watching it I think she was not only stupid by perpetuating "afro hate" but she might actually believe what she said.
If you don't want to watch the video this is the gist of it:
Sharon Osbourne talks about how Heidi Klum ziplocks her kids' afros when she cuts their hair because she doesn't want to throw the hair away.
Sheryl Underwood says "who would wanna keep afro hair?"
The other host throws her life line and says, "you know, some parents like to keep their kids' first hair for memory's sake".
Sheryl Underwood digs an even bigger hole for herself and says, "Well your kids have nice silky hair - but afro hair...now that's just nasty"!
What do you think about all of this? Okay or plain stupidity? Importantly, now that she's apologised, do you forgive her?
