Remember Jason Weaver
, the actor who played ‘Teddy’ on ‘A.T.L,’ well he’s in the news this week after making a statement online that caused a bit of an uproar.
Weaver felt ‘some kinda way’ about the online celebrations sparked by rapper Lil Boosie’s release from Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola this past Wednesday.
And while many made jokes about the rapper becoming a social media trending topic, Jason Weaver took to his Instagram to target the ‘over the top’ reaction from Lil Boosie’s fans and family… calling it “coon sh*t.”
…and this is coming from a person who was arrested for taking a dump in public.

Actor Jason Weaver’s decision to call his new duo “Sons of Bobby Brown”
may have more to do with his similarities to Bobby’s legal issue than his musical ability.
A loyal reader spotted my post about Weaver (aka “Teddy” from the ATL movie) the other day and sent over the following tea about the up and coming singer. He was apparently arrested in an Atlanta suburb on July 28, 2011 after an officer spotted him illegally fertilzing someone’s lawn.

So wait… Bobby Brown has some more sons we didn’t know about? Almost… but not really.
Jason Weaver the popular television/movie actor from Smart Guy, The Lottery Ticket and my personal favorite “ATL” has collaborated with Sky Keeton in honor of those who came before him in the music industry.
If you recall, Weaver broke it down as young Michael Jackson in The Jacksons: An American Dream, so we already know he has the chops…. but why do they refer to themselves as “Sons of Bobby Brown” when Bobby ain’t the daddy?
Well here’s the deal according to an email I received from Weaver’s camp…
Jason Weaver and fellow artist Sky Keeton are working on their latest endeavour called “Sons of Bobby Brown” The two pay homage to Bobby Brown and his music that influenced them.
The two have a new music video entitled ” You Got Me”. Jason specifically mentioned StraightFromTheA.com and really enjoys the site’s content and layout. Jason would like to provide you the video “You Got Me” for your site.
[Sidebar: I’m sure he says that to all the bloggers… *blushing* but since I like the video, I thought I’d share with you guys.]
