After Getting A Well-Deserved Drag Online, Tamar Braxton Half-Apologizes For Her Homophobic Remarks

After Getting A Well-Deserved Drag Online, Tamar Braxton Half-Apologizes For Her Homophobic Remarks

Singer Tamar Braxton set off a firestorm after issuing a “public service announcement” on her Instagram Story, warning all women that if a man “don’t touch” them in more than “3, 4, 10 days”, then clearly he’s “gay” and “want a man.”

“Truth is ladies that these dudes out here really do be gay!” Braxton ranted. “It ain’t enough money, beauty, hair, babies in the world to keep them!! They want DICK!! Periodt!!”

It was 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.

But she said it. And people weren’t happy about it.

Many felt Braxton was weaponizing homosexuality in an effort to mask her own insecurities. Some even wondered if perhaps she was referring to her boyfriend David Adefeso and if the remarks were set off by their rumoured break up.

 

Following the backlash on social media, the singer took to Twitter to walk back her remarks and to clarify that no, she wasn’t referring to Adefeso in the post.

“I shouldn’t have been in my feelings & ranted on social media based off a conversation with my friends,” she tweeted. “I was talking about me but not me and David. I’ve been through a lot.”

She also took a screenshot of the tweet and reposted it to her Instagram Story, adding the comment, “We all say stupid shit.”

While not an apology, it appears Braxton did get the message: Just because a guy doesn’t want to sleep her doesn’t mean he’s gay. And even if he is gay, so what? Find a different guy to sleep with. Better yet, stop relying on men for validation.

    To be honest I don’t see anything wrong with that comment. Cos it’s really a possibility. Besides any man who isn’t gay won’t feel threatened by the comment. On the other hand, the man is really gay, then perhaps at least Tamar helped the couple start “the conversation” ?

    She definitely deserved to be called out and all the dragging that resulted from her foolishness. What she said and the bitterness behind it did not at all benefit gay men — closet cases, dudes on the DL, or men trying to understand and come to terms with where they are on the romantic, sexual, affection, emotional, relationship spectrum. As a semi-famous person who tries to present herself as an ally, she has to understand how to communicate and what’s helpful and not helpful.
