Tommy Sotomayor is the man African-American women love to hate for he has indeed given them a truckload of reasons to do so. The Arizona native gained fame for his YouTube channel Mr. Madness where he vents his anger criticizing black women for many reasons from their craze for human hair to their inability to raise kids. An obvious men’s activist, Sotomayor is also described as a political and social commentator.
In April 2017, a Change.org petition circulated online bidding for Tommy to put down his videos perceived as emotionally hurtful to African-American women. The video cited “incalculable amounts of emotional, psychological and physical harm.”
Writers of the petition called on tech execs including Google/YouTube’s Larry Page and Sergey Brin to become “responsible” and cease providing a platform for Tommy to “purposely denigrate and demean Black women and girls and Black people in general.”
However, the petition seemed to have failed as Sotomayor’s channel is still going strong with over 303,000 subscribers as of 2017.
Tommy Sotomayor Bio
Mr. Controversy was born as Thomas Jerome Harris on December 11, 1975, in Georgia, Atalanta. He later relocated to Phoenix, Arizona where he now resides, in Scottsdale.
Tommy’s journey to notoriety began in the summer of 2012 when he launched his YouTube Channel titled. On the channel, he posted satirical videos with weird titles like “15 Kids, 1 on the Way, No Man!”, “Gabrielle Union Says Dating D Wade Hurt Her Career,” and “Woman Gets Pregnant By 13-Year-Old Boy.” He also posted clips of black women fighting on the streets and the page quickly gained traction, propelling Tommy to fame.
Many believe that Tommy’s hate for black women was nursed by his baby mama who sent him to jail for his inability to pay child support for their daughter.
In his many videos, Tommy has blamed black women for black men becoming gays. Despite being black himself, Tommy is a heavy critic of the Black Lives Matter Movement referring to it as a “thug group.” Tommy has described the BLM protesters as ” retarded kids in the class”.
While it appears like Sotomayor has got more enemies than friends, his bid to air his views has, for the most part, been progressive.
CNN law enforcement analyst, Harry Houck who is also a retired NYPD detective, took to Twitter in July 2016, to promote one of Tommy’s videos where he said that the African-American community is responsible for most of the violent crimes in America. Sotomayor also declared in the video that Black people are more serious problems than guns. Houk concurred, stating that Mr. Madness “knows what he’s talking about!”
