Sherri Shepherd Apologizes For Misrepresented Comments About Her Homophobic Upbringing!

Looks like Sherri Shepherd is not as fire and brimstone in her attitude towards gays than she'd have us previously believe!

After an incendiary interview in which she seemingly demanded respect for her homophobic upbringing, Sherri took the time on The View today to set the record straight once and for all:

"Working on a talk show that's centered in the opinion business, there's been several things that I've shared in the press that have upset people, and typically I don't respond to the criticism. However, I'd like to say I'm truly sorry to anyone I've offended with the viewpoints I express on Alicia Menendez's Tonight on the Fusion network. My interview was misrepresented, and only a portion of my comments were used as a headline to give the impression that I was condemning members of the LGBT community living in their own truth. In the interview, I express I was raised as a child to have a certain set of beliefs, but my beliefs have evolved significantly as my own personal relationship with Christ has increased. I believe that love is the grace of all things and I have no desire to judge anybody by who they are. I'm a person of compassion and anyone who knows me knows that I love, I accept, I embrace everybody who has love in their hearts. So I love you."

Well spoken, Sherri.

While she previously mentioned that her religion brought her up to believe that you were "going to hell if you're a homosexual," we're happy to hear that she has since evolved from those ridiculous beliefs.

We're glad that you're more universal in your love, compassion, and acceptance than was previously conveyed in your earlier remarks, Mizz Shepherd!

And we're equally proud you took the high road by apologizing out right. Classy.

    Sherri had to say something. She didn't want to get fired from her job. I'm sure that someone else wrote her little speech. She did not win me over.

    Her ass needs to be fired, she is no better than the bachelor. Both are liars. ABC needs to get rid of them both.

    She needs to go back to the projects that Old Hag Walters found her in…

    It is so funny that Sherri was mis-quoted and qualified her statement and apologized for any hurt it may have caused. And then the posters on this site spout racist and ageist crap and feel they are justified. My guess is that most of the people who make hateful comments such as this would not last a day on TV. Enough with calling for people to be fired, and let's try to have conversations instead.

    I'd rather have Star Jones back, she at least is intelligent.
    It's like Sherri"The world is flat"Shepherd is just playing a role, so phony and over the top.

    I think people should keep their "beliefs" to themselves. HOWEVER I do wonder where her beliefs were when she was going through with her 10th abortion….

    Maybe I'm missing something here. Is Sherri apologizing for the way she was raised? Lots of us had extremely (even if misguided) conservative parents. You don't get to choose your family. When I grew up, I made my own decisions about things. I changed, my parents never did. I certainly don't feel guilty about my parents views.
