Watch your mouth!
It’s that time of year. XXL recently revealed the newest member of the XXL Freshman Class. With all the excitement comes disappointment, and there was a huge debate over who ended up being snubbed from the class. Famous Dex’s name was probably the one that was thrown around the most. Many fans wonder why he was left out, but the real reason seems to finally be out.
Not So Famous
XXL didn’t want to include Famous Dex in the 2017 class, and fans started hating on the publication because of it. Dex’s fans were furious, and they were saying hateful things to everyone related to XXL until he called for peace.
Dex broadcasted a live stream session where he basically begged his fans to stop the hating on XXL.
XXL editor-in-chief, Vanessa Satten, opened up about the situation and confirmed what everybody was speculating. She said that the reason he wasn’t included on the cover was mainly because of the old video of him beating his girlfriend at the time.
She was on a recent interview with The Breakfast Club, and Charlemagne asked her if the video was the reason Dex was left off. She shrugged and replied, “I guess if you want to put it that way.”
She even went as far as to describe the differences between Dex and Xxxtentacion. She said that while XXX was captured on camera, he was never found guilty.
“We saw it,” she said. “I think the thing with X is also he’s the People’s Champ and hasn’t been found guilty of anything. You kind of have to let that play out. That’s who the people wanted.”
