In her defense, Fantasia declares:

It has been brought to my attention that something I said was taken out of context. I Fantasia Monique Barrino don’t judge anyone because I don’t want to be judged. The gay community is one of my largest supporters. I support the gay community as well as they support me. Bloggers please stop misrepresenting the facts.

Well, Fantasia…what exactly are the facts?

Update: Fantasia’s rep has issued a statement:

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.

  1. ok B Scott I understand all that, but where’s the apology in all this mess? Ok blogs took what she said out of context, but after it’s all said and done you still apologize. What’s up with the fake PR and that lame press release?

  2. The facts are she didn’t “SLAM GAY MARRIAGE” no words in her original post mention her opinion on gay marriage. She referenced the bible which states marriage should be between man and woman. Just because she used the words “gay marriage” doesn’t mean she was hating on it or speaking negatively about it. However she could have used a better choice of words.
