Fantasia Barrino Cleans Up Her Instagram Mess

Soul Train Awards 2012

Fantasia is doing her best to two-step out of the mess she stepped in when she singled out gays and weed smokers on Instagram as she tried to justify her B.S. with, “Well, well…what about them?”

A more articulate rep for the R&B singer said in a 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.

This is bull.

This is what Fantasia said:

Nothing was taken out of context. It’s pretty clear exactly what she meant: She implied that gay marriage is a sign of the end. Worse, she lumped it in with gun violence. It was an ignorant and insensitive comment she made as a result of her own guilt and anger. 

Problem is, many people like her benefit from the gay community only to show their true colors later. Her bedding someone’s husband has nothing to do with gay marriage. The sooner she gets over that, the sooner she’ll stop creating PR disasters.
