Christian App Creator Calls @BlameItOnKway 'Embarrassing,' Inciting Heated Debate On Representations of Black Masculinity And Homophobia

Dana Chanel isn't sorry for coming after men who she says mimic "ghetto" Black women.

Published January 10, 2018

A viral rant by the founder of a Christian app has resulted in a heavy debate on Black masculinity as well as the first major clapback of the new year. 

On Monday, Dana Chanel — who created the app Sprinkle of Jesus — posted a controversial Instragram photo targeting @BlameItOnKway and other comedians who use female alter ego characters. 

  1. Her post suggested Kway and others are 'degrading' to the Black community

    "Well.... I’ll get crucified, but as an Afro Latina I truly believe it’s a poor and degrading representation of the power of a black mans talents, who I am, my family and my kids will become. You are actors capable of being the next Denzel, the next Michael b jordan. You guys are capable of taking your talents beyond social media. This is not cool. Propaganda at its best, destroying and feminizing the black mans image. This is the “sunken” place. Lol and its disheartening so many people support and encourage them to act like females when they are saying that’s how they see “us” as women and think it’s funny," she wrote.

    The post quickly went viral and was picked up by The Shade Room. 

  2. Under Chanel's original post, many people disagreed with how she cast the comedians in a negative light
  3. Threads surrounding hyper-masculinity in the Black community as well as homophobia began as a result of Chanel's post
  4. Eventually, word got back to Kway, who responded with a perfectly petty and shady clapback

    I just can't anymore 💔😢 @danachanel yo ashy a** started all of this!

    Kway cried to the camera and then wiped his tears with hundred-dollar bills. Based on the video, he isn't sweating Chanel's comments. 

  5. Despite the dragging she received on IG and Twitter, Chanel did not back down from her opinion
