Last Monday, many were confused about American Idol season three winner (Fantasia Barrino) when she posted the following on her Instagram account:
“I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERMENT, THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!!,” she wrote. “It’s a lot that going on that the Bible speaks about we should Not be doing. Weed legal in some places, Gay Marriage Legal BUT YET IM JUDGED!!! Im not doing Nothing for you… My Life!!!!”
Gay fans quickly wondered what she meant putting gay marriage and legalization of marijuana on her post. Some reacted with disappointment with her post specially her gay fans.
Her management quickly responded to address the situation before it got out of hand saying:
“Comments made by Ms. Barrino through her Instagram account were recently taken far out of context, and the purpose of this release is to set the record straight,” …“Ms. Barrino is not now, nor has she ever been an opponent of the LGBT community. She has supported and performed at numerous events that are sponsored by the LGBT community. Whether it’s through a live performance or placement on social media, Ms. Barrino uses every opportunity to reach out and connect with her fans, all of her fans.”
It’s a good thing I didn’t blog about it because Fantasia directed her response to bloggers when she made her statement.
“It has been brought to my attention that something I said was taken out of context,” she said. “I, Fantasia Monique Barrino, don’t judge anyone because I don’t want to be judged. The gay community is one of my largest supporters. I support the gay community as they support me. Bloggers please stop misrepresenting the facts.”
I get ya’ girl. I didn’t think you were directing that message to us!
