Someone needs to tell Fantasia Barrino that the “some of my best friends are gay” defense went out with “not that there’s anything wrong with that.”
The American Idol contestant made headlines (for a change) recently with a bizarre Instagram post that complained the world was going mad, and cited marijuana legalization and gay marriage as proof.
After some understandably negative blowback, Barrino went back on Instagram to set the record straight—sort of. “My whole team is gay, my manager is gay,” she posted. “middle finger up to those who seak (sic) to destroy me. It won’t work.” She went on to say “I’ve been in to [sic] many gay clubs, sang at to many Prides,” to be homophobic.
You mean you danced to our music and took our money to perform? Wow, you’re practically a gay icon.
An hour later, Tasia posted an all-caps rant condemning bloggers for noticing comments she posted on a public forum for people to notice:
