Fantasia Barrino Says Comments Were Taken Out Of Context (Recap)


.
On Friday Fantasia Barrino Says Comments Were Taken Out Of Context was a top story. Here is the recap: (CBS Local) What was presumably an inspirational message to Fantasia Barrino's Instagram followers turned out to offend the sensibilities of gay marriage proponents. On December 31, Fantasia sent a picture of herself in a meditative pose, with the following message:

"I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERNMENT 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!!! I'm not doing Nothing for you… My Life!!!!"

After some pushback from the social media circles, Fantasia's reps attempted to mute the criticism with 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."

When that statement did not cool the heat she received, Fantasia released another statement - Read that here.
