Ashanti Pulls "Gotcha Grams"
I knew that was going to happen when she first started promoting them. “Less than 24 hours after a group of concerned parents and religious leaders gathered outside the Universal/Motown offices in Los Angeles to protest the bloody promotion for Ashanti’s “The Way That I Love You” single, the singer’s label has pulled the offending “Gotchagram” clip from her site. And, according to one of the protest leaders, the decision came after his group threatened to picket Ashanti’s performance at Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Sunday.” I hate though that it had to be on account of some religious bafoons. Just like religious and concerned people have a right to stand outside and protest Ashanti as well as other artists and people period have a right to express themselves. Anybody with common sense knows that Ashanti wasn't trying to promote murder. The Gotcha grams were all out of fun and pure promotion ($$$) for her album. If someone has the intent to kill a cheating lover trust and believe that a fake Gotcha Gram isn't going to be the thing to push them over the ledge. They're going to already have their mind made up!
