Erica Mena‘s ousting from “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” is giving the cast plenty of content for an upcoming special … which Erica says is pretty hypocritical, considering everything was all good until her controversial episode aired.
VH1’s airing a special roundtable discussion Tuesday, hosted by “colorism expert” Dr. Sarah L. Webb and featuring cast members such as Lil Scrappy, Yung Joc and Spice, … who was the target of EM’s “monkey” comment, which led to Erica’s firing.
After tonight’s episode was announced, Erica posted a video claiming she’d been on the set several days after her explosive argument with Spice aired and says the network “proudly” put it out for the world to see.
Her point is “L&HH” producers were fine with her, and only fired her in response to the public backlash that came once the episode aired.
A source close to Erica tells TMZ Hip Hop … she feels the network is trying to silence her, after the fact, by not letting her participate in the roundtable.
We’re also told Erica continued working on the show for 7 months after the “monkey” argument — another reason she feels producers are only shutting her out to avoid public backlash.
We reached out to Viacom, but no word back yet.
