Rocsi Talks About Webbie Incident

Baby Got Back!

Rocsi Diaz, co-host of BET’s 106 & Park, discussed a recent incident with Webbie, who has been banned from 106 & Park.

Webbie was permanently banned from the TV network after he appeared on 106 & Park’s “Freestyle Friday” segment in October, to promote his new album Savage Life 3.


Webbie said that the ban was due to Terrence J.’s passion for Rocsi.

Rocsiy dismissed the notion of a romantic link to her co-host and placed the blame squarely upon the rapper and his behavior.

“It’s really sad, the way it was looked upon. I have thick skin, but when you are at your job and somebody sexually harasses you, in a manner that is very vulgar and disgusting, I have no shame of sticking up for myself and telling you that you’re improper right now,” Rocsi told NBC’s Peter Bailey.

“I’m at work we’re on a set, there’s children around us. You’re really out of line right now.”

Rocsi admitted she was surprised by some of the support Webbie received after the incident.

But she was in full support of co-host Terrence J., who proclaimed that the Baton Rogue native was banned from the network.

“People should more so applaud a woman sticking up for herself and the people around her for sticking up for herself, than allowing that kind of behavior to happen. I think we allow that behavior to happen too much in our society. It’s ok to speak up ladies and say no I don’t like to be spoken to in that manner.”

Rocsi said that she was a fan of Webbie, since she’s a New Orleans native and he’s from Baton Rogue.

However, Webbie’s conduct on the show was too much and to top it all off, he’s never called and personally apologized. Webbie has also threatened Terrence J. several times since the incident.

“It was really inappropriate, it’s really sad and I just hope that he understands it. There’s never even been an apology, it’s been more of an upsetting incident [to him] because he can’t be on BET.”

Rocsi did say that Webbie’s management called and apologized for the rapper’s behavior.
