Fantasia Goes On Homophobic Rant On Instagram?!?

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayFantasiaLGBT

Whoa, whoa, whoa! This is not a great way to start the new year.

Fans were shocked when they saw the (above) pic of Fantasia Barrino on her Instagram account along with a fairly homophobic caption against gay marriage.

Mz. Barrino made her true feelings known when she wrote:

I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERNMENT THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!! Its a lot that going on that the Bible speaks about we should Not be doing. Weed legal in some places, Gay Marriage Legal BUT YET IM JUDGED!!! I'm not doing Nothing for you… My Life!!!!

Wow… those are certainly not the words of someone who believes in love and light!

She has since deleted the post, but not before her rep released the following statement, claiming that her remarks were taken out of context. Her PR people said:

"Comments made by Ms. Barrino through her Intragram account were recently taken far out of context, and the purpose of this release is to set the record straight. Ms. Barrino is not now, nor has she ever been an opponent of the LGBT community. She has supported and performed at numerous events that are sponsored by the LGBT community. Whether it’s through a live performance or placement on social media, Ms. Barrino uses every opportunity to reach out and connect with her fans, all of her fans."

Seems like a bit of backtracking to us, but we're HOPING that Fantasia isn't truly so opposed to gay marriage!

We're still side-eyeing the whole thing for now….

    It's a fucking free country right, and the same right that gay fight for are the same rights she has too. If she doesn't agree with gay marriage, that's her fucking right to do so. Stop being a fucking hypocrite to think that only gays have rights now. it's like if you don't agree with gays being married you're crucified. I have alwaus been for gay rights but this shit is just ridiculous!

  2. 2

    Who is Fantasia?

  3. 3

    Where does she say she's against gay marriage ? Can't you read, Perez ?

  4. 4

    I have to agree with pollopicu..believe it or not, not everyone agrees with gay marriage. That's ok you know. You can't force it on people. You are getting your way with the marriage thing..that's great, but its not fair to assume that everyone likes it.

    At one time, people discriminated against Black people, Fantasia…and FAT people, too. Glass houses, girl, glass houses ………. !

    It's a hate crime to say no to anything.

  7. 7

    she should keep her rants to the insanity of her own mind shes effing crazy.

  8. lulu banks says – reply to this


    who cares what this dumb ghetto bitch thinks anyway? she's so irrelevant.

  9. 9

    If this is how she feel's she should put it out there…now her "peeps" are doing damage control. Ignorance deserves a face…

  10. 10

    Who cares?

  11. 11

    Re: overthere – I agree. No where does she say she is against gay marriage. I agree that this statement needs context.

  12. 12

    shes so illieterate its hard to know if shes for or against anything wasnt this chick on x factor once why does anyone even care what she says…

  13. 13

    THe one thing she's not rising above all is the pop/r&B charts…..go back to being quiet and irrelevant, Fantasia.

  14. 14

    Get a rope! How dare she!

  16. Brittany says – reply to this


    She had a baby out of wedlock and had an affair with a married man….remember her "suicide attempt"….? Maybe she is in a relationship with this married man and people are judging her and she is saying there are all sorts of things that were once deemed inappropriate and they are okay now…so stop judging her.

  17. 17

    EEK. Just hit me that may have been offensive (the rope part) since Fantasia is black. BUT I say it all the time - noncolor specific - just being sarcastic - as if she committed this horrible crime and should be hung…………… oh vy

  18. 18

    I think she is right! what's with gay marriage all of sudden that's offensive! Marriage should be between a man and woman a special union together and to procreate. I don't give a crap if the gays are offended its a plain mockery to marriage . I wish the media would stop shoving it down our throats. Stop saying its ok to be gay because its not!

  19. 19

    Re: Angecutypie – actually darlin what's offensive is Christianity coming in and imposing their own version of values on marriage - an institution that existed LONG before people went nuts and decided a magical man in the sky controls everything and speaks to all these people who's predictions never comes true and hands down all these rules that "his" own followers don't even follow. None of this would even be an issue if Christianity hadn't commandeer marriage to belong to it through fear rather than to everyone like it did before all this hate under the illusion of religious love came to exist. There's a 54% divorce rate in North America, doesn't sound like more than half of heterosexual people respect marriage anyway.

  20. 20

    every one can have and express their own opinion UNTIL you disagree, them what they say is hate. FUCK YOU PERV-ez. I actually dont give a shit who marries whom, but your strident screechy bitching is beginning to make me want to be against it just to piss you off asshat. Your bullshit has probably lost more support than it has gained. I'm still waiting for GLADD to put a contract on your filthy nasty ass.

    Some people are white, some are white trash. Some people are black some are N! Fantasia you r a N! And no one knows you anyway!

    god you are a DIPSHIT,nothing she said was "anti" anything, he was making a comparison, you're jut a lying sack of shit PERV-ez.

  24. christina says – reply to this


    Homosexuality or gay marriage is not something anyone gets to have a say on, that's the point! It is NONE of you business, and no one cares if you 'agree' or not…there is nothing to 'agree' on….It is not a disease, it is not a choice, it is not a 'lifestyle'. It is who they are. I did not choose to be straight. I did not wake up one day and decide to be who I am. I was born this way, just like gays were. No one is trying to FORCE it on you, zaida bird. How does someone else being gay or getting married affect you in ANY way??? and NO ONE is assuming everyone likes it. I don't like Fantasia, but I don't judge those who do.

    Re: raypearson – WTF? Perez is allowed to hate her opinion just as much as she is allowed to have one. This is his website and he can say whatever the hell he wants. You're so stupid and uneducated reading your posts is like holding my breathe just to kill braincells. Hypocritical idiot with no friends, you are so sad :( pce

    For the most I don't like Perez but i'm so sick of people acting like robots believing everything the bible says. Geez there's not scientific proof it was actually written by god. Feel free to speak your mind because of something YOU believe, not because of something some book written by men tell you to believe in …

    Nice try PR team. She meant what she said in the first drunken rant.

  39. 39

    I hope that in this new year Fantasia can grow as a person, learn to be more open and accepting of others who are different than herself, and hopefully extend her vocabulary a little bit. Kind of hard to read that.

  43. just saying says – reply to this


    Here's my thought - gay people should seek legal civil rights i.e inheritance laws, civil unions etc..what they shouldn't try to do is redefine faith or the foundations of society. Marriage is a union between a man and a woman that's clearly defined in The Bible, The Torah and The Qur'an… all these Abrahamic religions clearly define homosexuality as a sin (whether you agree with them is besides the point) - you either think they're holy/divine in which case you must accept them as they are - or you don't- in which case you shouldn't seek to edit them or have your union sanctioned by them!

  44. kandycane says – reply to this


    Re: perez posse number 777 – then maybe you should keep your thoughts to yourself. It goes both ways. People are allowed to have their moral opinion. The Bible is clearabout homosexuals, at the same time you have free will. Your sin is between you and God, but Christians have the right to speak against it.

  45. kandycane says – reply to this


    Re: lulu banks – now that's RACIST!!!!!!! You're nobody to talk about hate

    If ANYTHING, Fantasia's rant is a clear indictment of the education system in the US.
    But to continue,
    1. The Bible, (and all of the random quotes that everyone from A-Z in the lunatic fringe like to throw at one another) is a BOOK.
    2. This BOOK was written by a group of random guys (fairly recently in the history of humanity) who figured they'd get a good start on world domination by creating rules for "the rest of us" to follow. Along with these "rules," they threw in a healthy dose of their own prejudices, fears and "ideas" about everything, including marriage, politics, & how women should be treated - basically, who gets to do what to whom, how, and when.
    3. To keep us from breaking these rules, they created a mythical "superman" who would one day come back, judge everyone they didn't like as "hellbound," (including homosexuals, prostitutes, thieves, athiests, & people who loved a Goddess too, etc.) and then wave His magic fairy wand and save us all from ourselves.
    4. And if the fear of Jesus someday "judging you" wasn't enough, (I'll get to that later) they told us that if we didn't follow those rules, we'd all end up in a mythical and horrific firepit they called "hell."

    Before this BS (and a whole lotta other religious BS that exists out there) there were societies that revered both men & women, and didn't care how they expressed love, so long as they didn't murder one another.

  53. 53

    So… To all of the nutjobs out there who like to throw random Bible quotes at one another, judge everyone else on the planet as "wrong" or "going to hell," and claim that "The Bible" told them so - or worse, that "God" says so - have your heads examined, and read a few more books. Learn that just because something is written down - by human beings, just like you and me, I might add - it ain't necessarily the effin' truth.

    5. About this mythical superman Jesus and if he existed: Who knows for sure? I personally like to think that IF he did, he was still only a human man, perhaps very smart, but subject to the same personal foibles and idiosyncrasies of any other man of his time… one who perhaps got carried away by the visions of rulership his disciples lusted after and craved.

    (Much like our Presidents and their Advisors.)

    I digress.

    IF everything that Jesus said was in fact true, and he WAS in fact, speaking "God's" words - hypothetically speaking - one of the things he said was: "Judge not, lest ye be judged."

    Oh, and here's something else:

    "That which you do unto the least of my brothers, you do unto me."

    And if that's the case, then everyone who believes homosexuality is "wrong," is going to burn in hell.

    Re: just saying
    Re your comments:
    "Marriage is a union between a man and a woman that's clearly defined in The Bible, The Torah and The Qur'an…" and
    "What [gays] shouldn't try to do is redefine faith or the foundations of society."

    My response to the first sentence should go without saying.
    But as to the second?
    FAITH is - and should be - entirely personal, and between each soul and his/her own creator, if they choose it, or feel the need for it. A religion that promotes "faith" as a series of rules, myths, threats and punishments, is still only based upon SOMEONE ELSE's ideals and prejudices, and should not be taken blindly as a "clear definition."

    And as for the FOUNDATIONS OF SOCIETY, are you freakin' kidding me?
    If everyone is a member of society, and VIEWED as such - which sadly in this day and age is still not true - then we should ALL do our very best to create and foster a stronger and more positive foundation for ourselves.
    "Control. Fear. Rulership. Separation. Dominance."
    Is that the best we've got?

    Re: pollopicu – Couldn't agree more. I am not against gay marriage, I say do whatever makes you happy. But I HATE how it seems that if you don't support it , then you are wrong, like you can rights as long as they go along with the way people think they should.

    This just shows how hard & double standard it is to be a gay non-white Person in any non-Caucasian community. They frown at a human being for being different in what hey ahead and their lifestyle yet non-whites were slaves and discriminated in the past. Now that is mostly resolved, non-whites turn around and create more havoc by discriminating to their own kind or anyone different or outside the box. It's 2013 and there's still stupid biography crap like this flying out. Fantasia should change her name to Fooltasia.

  62. BreakItDown says – reply to this


    So she's against gay marriage. There's lots of people who are and that's their opinion. I'm gay and I don't care what anyone has to say. Celebrities included. Her opinions don't make her a bad person either, she's been through a lot and she's venting. The world has changed and it may be daunting to some. Maybe she can learn to accept it in time but if she doesn't then that's fine too.

  63. 63

    Dear Ignorant Douche Bag Perez - When someone WRITES that gay marriage and marijuana are things "the Bible speaks about we should Not be doing" it CLEARLY means she is BEYOND against those things. Fantasia is just another nasty, skanky singer with some talent who makes non-stop BAD decisions and pisses away their careers. Yawn.

    The real headline here is the "PR" statement! What a bunch of fucking idiots. If they truly are PR reps, they should be fired immediately. "Set the record STRAIGHT" in an anti-gay spin attempt? LMAO! "Taken far out of context?" ROTFLMAO! What's the context genius "PR rep?" Washed up loser singer references the bible in her ignorant, bigoted rant then deletes it when her LOYAL gay fans protest. Classic.

    Shame on Fantasia for pissing her God-given talent down the toilet and for her hateful, homophobic trash talk. And Shame on Perez for its half-ass response ("HOPING she isn't against gay marriage?????). You should be calling her out for her BLATANT homophobia - gay marriage is the least of Fantasia's problem.

  64. 64

    Re: pollopicu – Don't usually reply to stoopidity, but this one is just too special…

    Pollopicu, Dig a little deeper. It's NOT "if you don't agree with gays being married you're crucified," it's if you falsely present yourself as the supporter of a group or cause FOR FINANCIAL GAIN and then reveal your hypocrisy and hate, you deserve to be crucified. And when you avoid responsibility with a ridiculous "PR" statement WITH NO APOLOGY, you deserve worse.

    And to answer your question, yup, it's a fucking free country. And I'm free to NEVER buy another Fantasia recording or product.

On the off chance that you just woke up stupid this morning and it's a temporary thing… "Nothing she said was anti-anything?????" LMAO. Irrelevant has-been Barrino was CLEARLY sharing her negative view on gay marriage, and, even more laughably, marijuana smoking. Duh.

    Re: pollopicu – Nobody's saying she can't say it, but you can't have it both ways. If a person doesn't believe in the civil rights of gay people, and decides to make that feeling public, then gay people have the right to boycott her, write about her, and say whatever the fuck they want about her as well. That's the rest of the story about the "fucking free country" you speak of. Jeez!!

  71. 71

    I love Fantasia and yes, that comment was taken out of context. It is so obvious. Apparently every little thing that involves the word "gay" or "lbgt" is a free pass to make a big deal out of nothing to get free news headlines. Frankly so tired of "gay news" being overkill and sebsationalized. How about just being a human being and dropping the lables as a starter. Want equality? How about not reminding everyone how gay someone is or some event is… It's just way too much in the news at this point. Let's move on people.

  72. Um... says – reply to this


    Soooo, because her beliefs about gay marriage do not agree with yours this is a rant? I'm sorry, I do not see any hateful content in her words. She simply is stating her frustrations with the outcome of issues that are important to her. I'm pretty sure you do this on a regular basis about gay marriage. This country is great because people are allowed to have their own opinions and beliefs….NO ONE should be shunned because of the way they feel. ESPECIALLY, if it is not done in a hateful/harmful way.

    So fuck wat if she said so.. besides she also commented about weed legalization..
    Why didn't you find fault in that?? Only the gay one…that's selective reading because your gay..
    She also has a right to hate homosexualism too…. U gay people just like looking for ways
    To justify ur orientation as right…..kmt
