Fantasia: Instagram Gay Nups Jibe 'Taken Far Out Of Context'

BarrinoFantasia Barrino's PR team claims the singer's comment about marriage equality being an example of a world gone mad were "taken far out of context":

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.

Supporting an abstract community and supporting specific equal rights are not necessarily the same thing, mind you.

  1. @Truth sets you free:
    How do you KNOW you can't change your skin color? Have you ever really tried? I bet if you really worked at it (bleaching, colored contacts, hair dye, etc.)for the amount of time the average ex-gay program takes you could probably pass for white at the end of it. No one would know you were black anymore. Does making all this effort to hide yourself - just to please others - sound offensive to your sense of self-worth? Then don't ask us to change for you. You aren't worth it.

  2. Wow: 1. If she didn't mean to offend, why did she delete it? 2. The PR firm should have not let HER write that retraction statement. It shows her guilt. 3. The picture is soooo ugly. It makes the statement worse. 4. She just learned to read, y'all! SMH LOL

  3. From the way she looked when she attempted to perform with Chaka, as a over dressed drag queen, She should take a look at who helped her, and be proud to support us.

  4. Ummmmm, lol, excuse me, but how can something from "INSTA-gram" be taken out of context. The whole point is there IS NO CONTEXT...IT'S "INSTANT" you damn fool.....and the only reason she has supposedly performed at an LGBT event is because they wrote her a damn check. When's the last time SHE wrote to a check to 'SUPPORT' all her (ex) gay fans. IDIOT...
