Queen Pen to Host Rally Against Domestic Abuse

- By Bossip Staff

After catching consistent beatings from her ex, Queen Pen is pushing for tougher domestic abuse laws:

Grammy winner and domestic violence survivor Queen Pen will host a press conference/rally on Friday January 16 to advocate tougher domestic violence legislation in New York.

Last year, the state’s Criminal Justice division released statistics supporting evidence that 55% of female homicides are due to a domestic issue.

Last January Queen Pen, born Lynise Walters, was severely beaten and rendered unconscious in a home invasion incident with an ex-boyfriend.

The brutal beating resulted in the rapper nearly being killed and required reconstructive surgery.

The ex-boyfriend and father of two of Queen Pen’s children remains at large. Before the last attack, Queen Pen had secured five orders of protections since 2005.

“It took 31 minutes for police to respond to a 911 call,” Queen Pen told AllhipHop.com of the incident. “If my life is taken away or I can’t provide for my children, who’s going to take care of them?”

Also joining Queen Pen for the rally is Persia of VH1’s White Rapper Show, who has a court date pending for carrying an unregistered firearm, allegedly for protection against a violent ex.

“I was involved in an abusive relationship which led to him trying to kill me,” Persia explained. “I felt I had no choice but to protect myself. I’m advocating in hopes that the laws can be in favor to the abused and we won’t have to fear for our lives any longer.”

Supporters that will be present for the rally include NY Senator Eric Adams, Assembly Member Hakeem Jeffries, Executive VP of the NY Board of Rabbis-Rabbi Joseph Potasnik, and retired Knick/activist John Starks.

New Hip-Hop artist Lil Mama and Greg King (father of the late Julian King, nephew of Jennifer Hudson, and representing the Hudson-King Foundation) will serve as special invited guests.

The event commences January 16 at 4Pm at the Denim Lounge, located on 1223 Bedford Ave in Brooklyn.

SMH and glaring at fellas who kick chicks’ asses. When you go to the big house with these tougher laws, those ‘real criminals’ are gonna f*ck you up something awful…and take your man cakes without your permission.  Punk.

    No way, Ashlie. Seriously? You care; ESPECIALLY in a year when your boyfriend flips a switch and dangles your silly ass off the balcony, throws you up against the wall, then blacks your left eye. Silly broad…it’s heffas like you who end up getting a rude awakening later on. “Oh, you gonna learn…”

    Why should any woman be afraid of a nicca putting hands on her when she got men in her family that will protect her and straighten that lil bytch out real? Aint no excuse for a man putting his hands on a woman, I’m 6’2 270lbs of concrete, and most of the men in my fam are about the same damn size, we wish a nicca would touch a woman in our fam, fuk that!

    This, I can guarantee: If you are 6′ 2″ and 270 pounds, you ain’t concrete…you’re fat, which is completely beside the point. Not trying to talk shit, just saying. You may feel that way about the women in your family, but do you know how many women who get abused have niggaz like you in their family who they are afraid to tell because they don’t want you to go to jail after you do the shit that you are basically threatening to do to the nigga? Exxxxactly. It ain’t about you, pimpin’. She could have a gun right beside her, but if she is afraid to, or won’t use it…it ain’t much help now is it?

    By the way…I misread your comment and thought you were saying you were a 6′ 2″ 270 lb woman…and I was going to spend a good portion of the morning performing a written assault I would later have to apologize for. My bad.

    All of us on this blog aint computer nerds homie, some of us hit the gym and got good genes. Nicca I disagree, a woman with strong men in her family knows what love is, and will never deal with some dude putting his hands on her. The bottom line is this me and my fam have allready straightened out a nicca or two here or there for that shyt, like we saw in New Orleans with hurricane Katrina, lack of communication, and men not standing up for there familys you have chaos, I don’t give a shyt about jail, touch what I love and we got a problem.

    Also to add to this men gotta be responsible for the women in there imediate families. I talk to the women in mine about shyt like this, for instance, do you have anybody threatening you? Stalking you? Giving you bad vibes? Its important to keep that dialogue and let them know that they can talk to you about anything (they even tell me the sex shyt which i don’t care to hear, but its all communication). Having a positive male is important.

  • Sicky Wife Beater

    THERE’S ALWAYS AN EXCUSE FOR DOMESTIC ABUSE. I LOVE BEATING ON A BITCH WITH A BASEBALL STICK, OH YEAH!

  • ATXChick

    she needs to take that red hair out like now

  • Nigga Said

    I think I might go to this rally and punch Queen Pen in the face. Since we aren’t a couple it wont be domestic violence, just assault.
