Fantasia is having a rougher start to the new year than most. After coming under criticism over recent comments she made about homosexuals and same-sex marriage, the American Idol winner had a public meltdown, posting a lengthy rant to her Instagram account.
Last month, using her Twitter account, Fantasia shared her belief that "Gay is a sin. Sin is a decease [sic]." The remark generated considerable backlash from fans and observers in the media, and yesterday Barrino unloaded on Instagram.
"NOW I'M ANGRY!! MY WHOLE TEAM IS GAY, MY MANAGER IS GAY, MIDDLE FINGER UP TO THOSE WHO SEAK [sic] TO DESTROY ME," she wrote in a post.
Fantasia then walked back her gay remarks, apparently remembering the old biblical adage "Judge not, lest ye be judged."
"I APOLOGIZE TO ALL MY LOVES, ALLLL MY GAYS, QUEENS AND FAB FRIENDS WHO’S SEEING THIS NONSENSE RIGHT NOW," she wrote, adding "THOSE WHO NO ME NO I DONT JUDGE ANY 1 AND THAT I JUST WANT THEM TO STOP TRYING TO JUDGE ME. TO ALL THE BLOGGERS AND NEWS STATIONS GOD BLESS YOU TOO!! CAUSE YOU NEVER SUPPORT MY GOOD YOU JUST REPORT THE BAD."
