ATLANTIC CITY — Producers of the Exxxotica Fan Choice Awards have changed the name of their BBW Performer of the Year award from Hungry Hungry Hottie to Whole Lotta Love.

The decision comes on the heels of a massive BBW fan and performer blow-back, accusing the fan-chosen awards show, known as The Fannys, of being insensitive.

“We received a large amount of messages and emails and have taken a step back and realized how that title could have been perceived,” said J. Handy, executive producer of The Fannys.

“We’ve always supported the BBW industry and as soon as we started hearing negative feedback the decision to change the name was quickly made.”

The 2013 Fannys honor excellence in adult entertainment in 13 irreverently named categories, including Non-White Chick of the Year (Ethnic Performer of the Year), The Who (Most Underrated Star) and the esteemed Most Valuable Vagina (Female Performer of the Year).

“We apologize to anyone who was offended,” Handy said. “We take great pride in the diversity of our events and this was just a not-so-successful of an attempt at being funny.”

The 2013 Fannys are part of the Exxxotica Expo and will be held on April 20 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. Tickets for both events are currently on sale at eXXXoticaExpo.com and TheFannys.com.
