Antoine Dodson shot to fame after appearing in a news segment after a man attempted to assault his sister by climbing into her bedroom window, before being chased off by Antoine. So you can run tell that, homeboy. Days later the moment was transformed into an autotuned song by The Gregory Brothers, with nearly million views on YouTube today. While many felt the meme was inappropriate, seeing as it originated from a serious news segment on a woman who had been assaulted, and her brother who was worried about her, with people debating whether it was funny or just offensive, Dodson was able to benefit from the fame the clip brought him.
In , while a resident of the Lincoln Park housing project in Huntsville, Alabama , he gave an interview on local television news prompted by the report of a home invasion and attempted rape of his sister. The video of the interview caught attention because of the passionate and flamboyant style of his delivery, speaking directly to the camera, in which he directly addressed his neighborhood's residents as well as the attempted rapist, and his use of vernacular. Some local viewers phoned the television station to complain that interviews with people such as Dodson reflected poorly on the community,   whereupon the station defended broadcasting the interview by stating that censoring such people is "far worse". The video of Dodson's television interview gained sudden popularity and then inspired several musical remixes , including a video by musical group The Gregory Brothers , known as the " Bed Intruder Song ". The song was a huge success and eventually reached number 89 on Billboard ' s Hot list.
