Terrence Howard who was suppose to sing the pimp song “It’s Hard Out Here For a Pimp” at the Oscars has back down due to pressure from other black Hollywood stars.

Terrence has been asked by a number of respected black actors, including Sidney Poitier, Denzel Washington and Will Smith to back out of the performance because the song is derogatory to the black community. Eva Longoria, friend of Terrence tells the Mirror why he decided not to do it:

Sidney Poitier said, ‘Do not go up there and represent the African American community singing about a pimp’.

The singing of the song will now be done by the group Three 6 Mafia, who wrote the song and are also nominated for for an Oscar. The performance will be a tone down version, but the word “bitches” will be allowed.
