Celebrities Called SelloutsEver since the days of black face and blaxploitation, we've all been trying to make sure that not too many celebrities go out in the world and embarrass us. It's a tough task because so many people are out there trying to earn some quick money no matter how much they set black people back. Here are some celebrities accused of setting us all back...did they all deserve the criticism?
Flavor Flav - His show was an embarrassment, but it's hard to reconcile that with the fact he was also a member of Public Enemy.
Tyler Perry - People like Spike Lee don't take too kindly to Perry running around dressed like a woman and saying "Hallelujerrrr."
The Wayans Brothers - They've been accused of making comedy that set us back, especially back when White Girls came out.
Chris Tucker - Remember 5th Element? He was wearing the wig and acting a little too crazy? He got a lot of criticism as setting black characters back. But it launched his career.
