UPDATE: Fantasia’s management have released a statement on her behalf:
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.
WOW. Where is the apology? Or at least an explanation of what was taken out of context? If Fantasia wants to fix the mess, she needs to sound contrite. This poorly written “statement” does not cut it.
Fantasia also posted another instagram:
Unless this is a hoax, this photo is a screencap from a photo and message Fantasia Barrino posted on her instagram account.. It’s hard to unscramble her jumbled mess of a post, but the Season 3 American Idol winner appears to be calling out pot smoking and gay marriage.
Regardless of her faulty logic and poor attempt at making some kind of point (calling out folks throwing stones by throwing stones herself?) Fantasia has managed to cause quite a stir on twitter! She’s getting slammed. Congrats, Fantasia, on alienating a huge portion of your fan base!
