BET Brings Back 'UnCut': Social's Most Hilarious Reactions
Black Enterprise Magazine July/August 2018 Issue

Tonight BET’s Uncut will make its return to TV after the series finale of The Game. The controversial show where videos are often raw and raunchy, was as an outlet for underground artists and up-and-comers to showcase their explicit visuals that couldn’t be showcased during prime time hours with other artist’s visuals that are more mainstream-friendly.

The show, which began airing in 2001 and had a rating of TV-MA, faced backlash from women’s rights and parent groups; as well as some hip-hop heavyweights of the time, citing the content as derogatory, misogynistic and too close to soft porn. The show was cancelled in 2006.

UnCut’s return comes as the network loses top TV phenom team, Salim and Mara Brock-Akil, the minds behind Being Mary Jane and The Game. The two have taken their talents to Warner Bros., according to reports.

As news of the show’s return was confirmed, many took to social media to express their shock, approval, and disbelief. Who will be tuning in? Check out insights below:
