Wilson (or whoever wrote her bit) thought it made sense to introduce the award for best hip-hop video wearing a police officer uniform. The movement against racially biased police brutality — which Wilson summed up as "a lot of people [having] problems with the police" — prompted the actress to take a stand against police strippers.
Wearing a "F— Tha Stripper Police," Wilson began with what looked like a rant about (stripper) police unfairly targeting her. "They come to your house. You think you're getting arrested," she said, "and you just get a lap dance and it's usually uninspired."
What followed was even worse: Wilson actually hinted that she was upset a police officer didn't perform sexual favors. "I hired a police stripper for my grandma's 80th and he wouldn't even feel her up... I hate this injustice, hence the shirt," Wilson said. A jarring joke, given police officers in Texas intrusively searched a black woman's vagina against her will in June.
According to the Washington Post, a black unarmed man has been shot by police every nine days so far this year — and less than 1% of police shootings are investigated. Violence against women of color and LGBT folks, although rarely discussed, also occurs at disproportionate rates. For Wilson to get onstage and make light of a movement that draws attention to this reality is more than just not funny, it's offensive.
