D.L. Hughley Questions Why Media Outlets Are Letting Dana White Hitting his Wife Off the Hook But Black Celebrities Aren’t Given the Same Grace

Earlier this week, TMZ reported that UFC owner and promoter, Dana White struck his wife on New Year’s Eve at a Cabo San Lucas nightclub. Some people may not know about it because it has not been heavily reported. This observation was not lost on comedian and radio host, D.L. Hughley who took to his social media accounts to question why hasn’t the media given White the coverage that a Black celebrity a la Chris Brown would have received in similar circumstances.

Hughley first took his observation to his Twitter account when he mentioned Chris Brown, Bobby Brown and Antonio Brown in direct reference to the opposite treatment White has gotten from media outlets.

“If #ChrisBrown, #BobbyBrown or #AntoinioBrown did what #DanaWhite did, the media wouldn’t stop talking about it!! What can Brown do for you?………Be White!! #TeamDl

After posting that message, the crickets on coverage of White’s misdeeds continued so he brought the topic up once again on Thursday via his Instagram account. Again, asking the question, “What can BROWN do for you?” He reminds people that the UFC owner makes his living capitalizing off “brutal, physical violence” yet the headlines about his actions toward his wife are not as blaring as they would be had a Black celebrity committed the same transgression.

He cleverly uses the hashtag #WhitePrivilege and acknowledges the coincidence that the privilege being placed upon White is a double entendre.

“What can BROWN do for you?” Apparently not a damn thing! If that had been a brotha, it’d be NONSTOP coverage, dredging up a playground fight from the 3rd grade, scouring old tweets, you name it. #DanaWhite ‘s ENTIRE LIFE is immersed in brutal , physical violence, he’s amassed a fortune from it. Where are the salacious headlines?? Where’s the pressure?? Ohhhhh, he apologized🙄 #WhitePrivilege (PUN INTENDED) scores a 1st round knockout yet again. #TeamDL
