“I don’t fight, I don’t argue, I just hit that b*tch with a bottle.” These simple yet poignant words are from the 2006 South Eastern regional hit Bottle Action. The song details a girls night out at the club turned mêlée, when a player hating heffa is hating on another woman because her boyfriend is checking her out. The woman that is minding her own business ends up beating the player hating heffa’s ass down with all sorts of bottles from Hypnotiq to Moet bottles. Now, I know you are asking yourself what does this have to do with all the Twinkies in Monique’s refrigerator? I’m glad you ask.
In case you missed it, our FLOTUS Michelle Obama was giving a speech about children and education when a gay rights supporter interrupted Mrs. Obama while she was talking. Heckling her about her husband signing an executive order for gay rights.
Hey, that’s all good and shit LGBT supporter, but what you won’t do is test Mrs. Obama like that.
Here is what happened via SLATE
Michelle Obama found herself in a similar position Tuesday night at a fundraiser in northwest Washington, where she was interrupted by an LGBT activist about halfway through her 20-minute speech. The first lady took a slightly different tack than her husband, via the official pool report:
Most notable part of the event was an interruption from a protester about 12 minutes into the 20-minute speech. A pro-LGBT rights individual standing at the front began shouting for an executive order on gay rights. (Pool did not hear exactly what.)
“One of the things I don’t do well is this,” replied FLOTUS to loud applause. She left the lectern and moved over to the protester, saying they could “listen to me or you can take the mic, but I’m leaving. You all decide. You have one choice.”
Crowd started shouting that they wanted FLOTUS to stay. “You need to go!” said one woman near the protester.
The protester was then escorted out, shouting “…lesbian looking for federal equality before I die.” (First part of the quote was inaudible.) Pool could not get their name before they were taken out.
“So let me make the point that I was making before,” continued FLOTUS. “We are here for our kids. So we must recapture that passion. That same urgency and energy that we felt back in 2008, 2012. Understand this — this is what I want you all to understand. This is not about us. No one back here. It’s not about you or you or your issue or your thing. This is about our children.”
Loud applause in response to this comment.
The heckler turned out to be Ellen Sturtz, who spoke with several reporters after the event to relive the moment of her face-to-face confrontation with the first lady. “She came right down in my face,” Sturtz told the Washington Post. “I was taken aback.”
The event was a private fundraiser, so we don’t have any video of the incident (yet, at least). But already we do have some garbled audio, which you can listen to below
Now, having an opinion and expressing one is our God given right (unless the Republicans have their way), but there is a time, a place, and a way to do it. But what you won’t do is test Michelle Obama’s gangsta by interrupting her while she is talking. In other words like Pretty Tony says “when grown folks are talking, you need to shut the f&ck up.”
So the next time you decide to “check” Mrs. Obama, pat her down to make sure she’s not carrying a razorblade on her. Check what’s on her iPod play list, and if you see “Bottle Action”, Girlfightor Knuck If You Buck, you might want to think twice. Oh yeah beware of folks from the South Side of Chicago.
