    Cliffs:

    • seems to be about her experiences on that episode of STTI when Joe was there.

    • she didn't have any rapport with Joe prior to starting the podcast

    • Joe repeatedly told her he wanted to fukk her while they were recording. These parts got edited out of the episode

    • Joe said she was carrying the show because the other two weren't dressing sexy enough...fostering an uncomfortable/ competitive work environment. Caused one of her co-hosts to admittedly shut down every topic Olivia brought to the table.

    • one of her co-hosts (Mandii?) was reporting back to Joe about what Olivia was saying in their groupchat

    • Joe told her at the break in the podcast he was going to hug her to lighten the mood (weird thing to plan?)...she didn't know he was gyrating on her until she saw the clips

    • she's mortified that her being objectified will live on forever on the internet

    • she had to explain to her daughter that this is not okay, and if it happens to her, she needs to speak up. She feels like she was being a hypocrit so that's why she's speaking up now

    Update:
    Joe Budden Apologizes to Olivia Dope Following Sexual Harassment Allegation

    In a statement issued Tuesday, May 18th, Budden responded: “As a podcaster, it is my job to address topics and create dialogue around them. During the conversation on the See, The Thing Is podcast I didn’t handle the topics with the sensitivity they deserved. I recognize my words and power in that situation created an upsetting environment for Olivia. Upon reflection, both the network and I take accountability for this.”

    He continued: “I apologize sincerely to Olivia, her former co-hosts, our staff, and the public. In an effort to not further any trauma, the episode will be removed from all platforms. We support all women’s rights to feel comfortable and protected in the workplace. We fell short of that in this instance. We support Olivia in her quest to heal, applaud her for finding the strength to share her experience, and wish her the best in all her future endeavors. I am taking the time to listen and learn; we have already begun to make the necessary changes to ensure this is a safe environment for all moving forward. We at the network endeavor to continue to elevate Black women’s voices and create opportunities to have constructive conversations to impact change.”

    EDIT : In the video she says that they asked her if she wanted those parts with Joe hugging her edited out, to which she said yes. Then they asked her again for the final time and she said yes put it out. So what is the issue ?

    I get it, this is perfect timing cause of the podcast beef so she's attempting to capitalize on this moment.
