All of this.   They should have asked for a meeting as well.   Everybody's ego got in the way here but I think Nelly may have been overwhelmed with what he was trying to do (emotionally) and remained completely dismissive of the issue the ladies had.  His comments didn't help, just expressed his anger and pain. 

Either way I do support shaking your ass in a video if thats what you want to do.  Video girls be looking super sexy but lets not pretend negative images of black women at this level aren't damaging.   How much ass and titties do you need in one music video?  At some point its simply exploitative and women look like nothing but flesh.   

Ironic that Nelly only saw one opportunity missed.

i'm sure "kicking someone's ass" is the answer most grown men use to solve their problems. should really help his cause

this. that was just ignorant and small of them. they could've been in a position to raise awareness of a more than worthy cause to our race and help people.

they and their institution should be ashamed. smh

This was not the right time…
Save your protest for a different time this was about health…
As a gerontologist when I was in the field it hurt me so much to see people suffer. Sometimes people would just drop their loved ones off at a nursing home or assistant care and never look back. This is one reason why I love the state of Oregon (Death with Dignity Act). When it’s time for me to experience completion of life… I don’t need the state of California telling me it’s not time. Suffering near death is barbaric…

I was watching a documentary last year (Hip Hop: Beyond Beats and Rhymes), and I could be getting this wrong since I was only half paying attention, but I think they said that the students or maybe the student government of Spellman wanted to have a forum with Nelly before the drive, and when he declined they cancelled his event. 

Now I personally have nothing against the Tip Drill video as an individual video, however, when images like that are pretty much dominant when it comes to media representation of black women, I understand their frustrations completely. They could've, and I do believe should've, continued with the bone marrow drive, but I dont hold it against them for not doing it. Nelly himself could've, and very well should've, let them express their anger and frustrations. Yeah, his pride and his feelings might've been hurt by it, but he could've gotten several more donors.

In the end, if I'm remembering the situation correctly, Nelly doesnt need to kick anyone's ass.

Nelly could've held that drive anywhere in America and had droves of people coming in. 

The point is, don't disrespect your women and treat us like objects then expect all to be forgiven when you need not just our money, but our damn bone marrow. Nope. Nope. Bye.

Samone coming in with the facts.  Looks like there wasn't much time for discussion before it all boiled over.  Seems a little childish for Nelly to address this now and not immediately attempt to open dialog with the ladies.  Missed opportunity indeed.

Now if someone were coming to our school for a similar well worthy cause and we found out the day before that they were running around in a video of blacks being hanged and white girls in black face twerking, the intent of the drive would be diminished either way.   He failed to mention his own organization canceled the event rather than face the controversy head on.  I'm glad to see the two girls came together instead of turning it into two factions within the campus.

Ahh...so why is he mad if his foundation was the one that withdrew? He felt a way because they felt disrespected? Just by reading the article, I highly doubt that they would've cancelled the event, they probably just would've disinvited him. Nelly, bb, do better.
