Tamar Braxton has always been a tepid LGBTQ ally. But over the weekend she let it be known that her support for the community is about as real as her heavily-mascaraed lashes.
On Saturday, the singer made a “public service announcement” on her Instagram page warning women that if their boyfriends “don’t touch” them in more than three or four days, then clearly they’re gay.
“Truth is ladies that these dudes out here really do be gay!” Toni Braxton’s 42-year-old baby sister ranted. “It ain’t enough money, beauty, hair, babies in the world to keep them!! They want D**K!! Periodt!!”
She continued, “It’s nothing wrong with you, but they will find EVERY reason in the world to make u not good enough!! If he lays with you for 3, 4, 10 days and he don’t touch u, it’s NOT YOU!! HE WANT A MAN!! And that’s on my momma.”
That’s quite a bold statement from someone whose singing career has literally been kept afloat by performing dance songs at Pride events and guest judging on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
The post has since vanished from Braxton’s Instagram page, but a screen grab of it has been making the rounds on social media.
It’s unclear what sparked Braxton to go off on her homophobic tirade, but some believe it might have something to do with her rumored break up with boyfriend David Adefeso. Still, Twitter wasn’t having any of it.
Tamar Braxton is the example of a “fag hag” who benefits off of gay culture but secretly despises the community

So, Tamar Braxton posted on Robyn Fenty’s innanet that if a man is not interested or isn’t in the mood to have sex with his woman, he’s really just gay and rather have dick?!?

Tamar Braxton is doing what a lot of girls do when processing rejection.
"He must be gay"
Maybe you sex is trash and he's no longer into you sexually.

I told Tamar Braxton her comment about gay men was insensitive. I also said now I can see why she got kicked off The Real… and then she blocked me… pic.twitter.com/kkR6ymrNYq

The gag is, without the gays Tamar Braxton would not have a personality.

So sick of straight women like Tamar Braxton using homosexuality as a weapon just because a man doesn’t want them.
Stay getting cheated on by other women, yet always finding a way to blame gay man.
