Fantasia Barrino isn’t a fan of marriage equality.
The 28-year-old singer made famous by winning the third season of American Idol, took to Instagram to tell the world that she is completely confused as to why marriage equality and weed are legal in some places yet she’s still being “judged”.
“I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERMENT, THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!! 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!!!!”
You’re mad about being judged, but then you turn around and judge others?
Fantasia has since deleted the post.
Fantasia’s management released the following statement:
“Comments made by Ms. Barrino through her Intragram 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.”
Taken out of context? It was a simple copy and paste.
Fantasia will take the stage at the 2013 Super Bowl Gospel Celebration (SBGC) in New Orleans. The annual celebration is sanctioned by the NFL as one of several events that take place every year in the days and hours leading up to professional football’s biggest night.
