Ellen DeGeneres Cancels Gospel Singer Kim Burrell’s Performance Following Homophobic Sermon!

no title

You go, girl!

On Tuesday, Ellen DeGeneres revealed Kim Burrell will not be appearing for her scheduled performance on her hit daytime talk show after a video of the gospel singer giving a homophobic sermon recently began circulating online.

In case you missed it, while preaching at her self-founded Love & Liberty Fellowship Church over the Holiday weekend, the 44-year-old declared:

“The perverted homosexual spirit, and the spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women.”

Lovely…

She also described certain homosexual acts as “perverted,” and even exclaimed that if you’re “playing with [homosexuality] in God’s house, in 2017 you will die from it.”

Kimberly’s disgusting rant went on for a few minutes, and you can watch the entire thing (below):

After the controversial clip went viral, Kim received a TON of backlash online.

Plus, one of the people who called her out was none other than Pharrell, with whom she was supposed to perform their song I See Victory from Hidden Figures on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week!

The Happy singer took to Instagram to condemn hateful speech, posting:

In the wake of the negative attention, the pastor took to Facebook Live on Friday, in a poor attempt to clarify her comments.

Kim tried to backtrack at first, saying:

“I never said all gays were going to hell. I never said ‘LGBT’… I said ‘SIN.'”

But ultimately, she still defended her actions, adding:

“To every person who is dealing with the homosexual spirit, that has it, I love you and God loves you but God hates the sin in you and me. Anything that is against the nature of God.”

She even straight-up said she wasn’t apologizing:

“I make no excuses or apologies. My love is as pure as it comes.”

Ch-ch-check out her video explanation (below)!!!

Not today, Satan!

Luckily, Miz DeGeneres — who has been openly gay for years — eventually took to Twitter to confirm the homophobic songstress would NOT be performing on her show, posting:

Serves her right.
