PTC Advisory Board member Paul Porter, founder of Rap Rehab and Industry Ears, scored two notable victories against the bigotry and foul content rampant in the entertainment industry this week. After Porter called out an ad for Mountain Dew depicting all African-American men as abusive, Pepsi pulled the racist commercial.
Mr. Porter also helped secure a public written apology from rapper Lil Wayne, who wrote a song lyric comparing sex to the brutal beating/mutilation/murder of 1960’s civil rights figure, 14-year old Emmett Till. Porter was also instrumental recently in getting rapper Rick Ross to apologize for his song “U.O.E.N.O.”, which promoted drugging and raping women. The PTC is proud to count Paul Porter as an ally, and applauds him for standing up for decency.
