The creator of the petition writes: "Evelyn Lozada is a bully. The violence on 'Basketball Wives' is horrible and disgraceful. Physical assaults, threats, verbal abuse, and harassment. VH1 is rewarding this behavior by giving Evelyn a spinoff. Don't reward negative behavior."
The petition calls for the boycott of "Eva and Ocho," a new VH1 spin-off show featuring Lozada, who lives part time in Miami and owns shoe store Dulce in Coral Gables, and her NFL baller fiancé Chad Ochocinco.
Over 20,000 people have signed the petition, which states "This is not a hate petition against Eveyln Lozada. We simply will not support violence. It hurts to see violence amongst women on television for entertainment purposes. It is not ok for women to hit each other on TV."
The film is reportedly to be a work of fiction and follows a "young woman who follows her boyfriend to Miami after he’s drafted into the NBA. Once in the world of professional sports, she slowly becomes a part of a sisterhood of players' wives, learning from their trials and tribulations."
On the TV show, which is filmed in Miami, NBA players' exes, girlfriends, and baby mamas socialize and tussle at posh South Florida restaurants and VIP events.
