Frank Ocean’s Mom Wants to Crop Kim Burrell’s Voice Out of Collabo


Def Jam/Boys Don’t CryThere’s now more fallout from gospel singer Kim Burrell‘s anti-gay speech at a Houston church, which has gone viral.

Following the news that Burrell is no longer appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday as scheduled, Frank Ocean‘s mother has now taken to Twitter to suggest that Burrell be somehow cut out of her son’s latest album, Blond.  The two collaborated on the song “Godspeed” on that album; Ocean revealed his bisexuality in a 2012 Tumblr post.

On Twitter, Katonya Breaux writes, “Me: Son, can we crop Kim Burrells voice out of your song??”  She added, “I mean damn. Hypocrisy and the inciting of hate pisses me off. Opportunistic &?%#€!!”

Burrell was set to perform the Hidden Figures track “I See a Victory” with Pharrell Williams on Ellen’s show on Thursday.  He later tweeted that he’s against all hate speech.
