Fantasia Barrino anti-gay instagram rant

R&B songstress Fantasia Barrino is upset that folks are peeved at her for posting an Instagram on Sunday that appears to condemn same-sex marriage reports E! Online.

The former “American Idol” season three winner let ‘er rip by seemingly not condoning gay marriage but also criticizing an out-of-control world that she feels is judging her unfairly stating:

“I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERMENT, THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!!,” she wrote. “It’s 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!!!!”

Since posting the incendiary comment, the baby momma of two has drawn the ire of fans who offered her a piece of their minds. Upon realizing that her statement had sparked allegations of homophobia, her management quickly performed damage control:

“Comments made by Ms. Barrino through her Instagram account were recently taken far out of context, and the purpose of this release is to set the record straight,” read the statement. “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.”

Barrino then followed suit and posted a “make nice” instagram message:

“It has been brought to my attention that something I said was taken out of context,” the Grammy winner noted. “I, Fantasia Monique Barrino, don’t judge anyone because I don’t want to be judged. The gay community is one of my largest supporters. I support the gay community as they support me. Bloggers please stop misrepresenting the facts.”

Hopefully, the eight-time Grammy nominee can now concentrate on promoting her latest musical offering “Lose to Win,” which will be available on iTunes on January 8.
