Tommy Sotomayor is the man African American women love to hate most because he has given them a whole range of reasons to do so. The Arizona native became famous through his YouTube channel Mr. Madness, where he expresses his anger by criticizing black women for a variety of reasons – from their addiction to human hair to their inability to raise children. Sotomayor is an obvious men’s activist and is also described as a political and social commentator.
In April 2017, a petition from Change.org went online asking Tommy to stop his videos, which were perceived as emotionally hurtful to African American women. The video cited “incalculable amounts of emotional, psychological, and physical harm.
The authors of the petition called on tech executives such as Larry Page and Sergey Brin of Google/YouTube to become “responsible” and stop offering Tommy a platform to “deliberately denigrate and belittle black women and girls and black people in general.
The petition seemed to have failed, however, as the Sotomayor channel is still strongly represented with over 303,000 subscribers (as of 2017).
Tommy Sotomayor Bio
Mr. Controversy was born Thomas Jerome Harris on December 11, 1975, in Georgia, Atalanta. He later moved to Phoenix, Arizona, where he now lives in Scottsdale.
Tommy’s journey to fame began in the summer of 2012 when he launched his YouTube channel entitled Mr. Madness. On the channel, he released satirical videos with strange titles like “15 Kids, 1 on the Way, No Man!”, “Gabrielle Union Says Dating D Wade Hurt Her Career” and “Woman gets pregnant by the 13-year-old boy”. He also released clips of black women fighting in the streets and the site quickly gained ground, which helped Tommy to fame.
Many believe that Tommy’s hatred of black women was nursed by his mama, who sent him to prison because he was unable to pay child support for her daughter.
Although it appears that Sotomayor has more enemies than friends, his attempt to spread his views has been largely progressive.
CNN law enforcement analyst Harry Houck, who is also a retired NYPD detective, went on Twitter in July 2016 to promote one of Tommy’s videos in which he said the African-American community was responsible for most violent crime in America. Sotomayor also stated in the video that blacks are more serious problems than weapons. Houk agreed with this and said that Mr. Madness “knows what he’s talking about!
Tommy Sotomayor Wife, Daughter
As far as we can tell, Sotomayor was never married. Ironically, he has two daughters by TWO baby mamas.
The first one (an African-American woman), who gave birth to her daughter named Sara, threw him in prison for not paying child support. Since his fame, he has refused to tell too many details about her.
Tommy has told more about his second mother and her daughter Alex in public. He filmed her and posted many clips of her with him on his YouTube channel.
But that’s not all, Tommy is said to have several children, including a son whom he allegedly abandoned.

To the dismay of many, Sotomayor was able to effectively monetize his numerous tirades. In addition to his YouTube channel, which gets a lot of hits and thus always brings in money from ads, Sotomayor also owns a rather popular website sotomayortv.com where he earns money with the same means – ads.
He is the host of a radio show called Your World, My Views. He has also expanded into film production, with one film (Drugs & Other Love) available to him. Tommy has also made a documentary film called A Fatherless America.
With an estimated net worth of $2 million, Sotomayor can afford the luxury of life. Take a look at his elegant mansion.
