Face-Off -- Rev vs. Revved Up

7/10/2007 3:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Reverend Al Sharpton and our very own Harvey Levin went head-to-head over RobohoGate.


TMZ used the word "Roboho" two weeks ago in a humorous fashion review to describe an outfit Beyonce wore in performance at the BET Awards. In a statement to TMZ, The Rev said the use of the word was racist and misogynistic. TMZ respectfully disagreed.

Listen to both arguments -- and vote!

I'm a 37-year-old black woman who loves TMZ and Harvey Levin! I thought "roboho" was funny as hell.

Al Sharpton stopped being relevant years ago.

Guess what. You can't CHANGE people's opinion's - even in a court of law. That's exactly what descriptive words are. OPINIONS. I'm with Harvey, if you don't like TMZ - STAY OFF OF IT - that goes for anyone else that is "offended".

I like your statement today much better than yesterday. I don't want to live in a sterile environment either. It's a slippery slope when you start burying words. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Paul Harvey ! Free speech !

this is inspired by beyonce's massive fan club calling al sharpton...they can't stand one joke about their precious bey....the funny thing in the next sentence they call eve's outfit streetwalker chic..which means she is being called a hoe as well according to Al's logic...whatev...it was funny..this wont go far

If Harvey Levin was black Al Sharpton wouldn't care less. The only reason he cares is because Levin is white. SHUTUP Sharpton. Your really stretching it on this one

Sounds like the reverend is insinuating that ho's can only refer to black women? Is that his argument? Strange
