Bad Note

Ashanti Tweet Is Vaguely Homophobic, Definitely Stupid

Homophobia hasn’t really been acceptable since the last time she hit the charts, but it’s apparent that faded R&B singer Ashanti didn’t get the memo.

After asking an innocuous football question on Twitter and being trolled by a user about the…underperforming single released to promote her upcoming album Braveheart, Ashanti lashed out.

While definitely not as bad as dropping the f-bomb, the tweet definitely suggests that being gay is something bad or to be made fun of.  Of course, being gay is nothing to be ashamed of, but Ashanti should definitely still be ashamed of this.

Tread lightly, as that clip is NSFE (Not Safe For Your Ears).

The Celebrity Cafe capped some disappointed tweets from fans, who were definitely not amused with Ashanti’s behavior.

Oh Ashanti, hate tweets are definitely not a way to reignite a career that has been struggling with a serious case of Beyonceitis since 2003.

For the few that still care, her next album Braveheart is tentatively scheduled for release in February. But we’re guessing that you, like the rest of America, haven’t cared since mid-2005 at best.
