4. Fantasia’s rep comments on Instagram comments
Fantasia’s crew immediataly went into clean-up mode after the singer’s unfortunate comments on Instagram earlier this week.
Some of Fannie’s fans were left feeling some kind of way after she made a comment about a same-sex marriage while questioning why people are so judgmental of her.
"I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERMENT, THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!!" she stated. "Its 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!!!!"
After the explosive reaction from her followers, the Instagram post was later deleted from her feed. Fantasia’s manager Brian Dickens said the public took the singer’s words the wrong way. "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," he argued in a statement.
Ms. Barrino is not now, nor has she ever been an opponent of the LGBT community," he added. "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."
