After this particular instance, Mo Bamba became the leading cause of Jonathan saying the N-word. Experts say this is likely due to a combination of Jonathan thinking it’s okay to say the word in a song and the fact that, according to him, "'Mo Bamba' slaps."
A few months ago, primary causes of Jonathan saying the N-word were ignorance and having no black friends. As soon as Mo Bamba went viral, however, it quickly became a contender.
“'Mo Bamba' is really having an impact on Jonathan right now," said Dr. Ari Cooper, the lead researcher o the study. “We certainly expect the trend to die down in a few weeks and for Jonathan to return to saying the N-word for other unjustifiable reasons.”
Sheck Wes has declined to comment on this matter.
