ABC/Lorenzo BevilaquaAfter being dragged online for telling women that their men were “gay” if they refused to be physically intimate with them after several days, Tamar Braxton is now walking back her problematic comments.
On Tuesday, Braxton responded to the backlash on Twitter.
“I shouldn’t have been in My feelings, &ranted on social media based off a conversation with my friends,” she wrote.
“I was talking about me but not me and David,” she continued, addressing fans who believed she and her boyfriend, Nigerian businessman David Adefeso, had broken up.
“I’ve been through a lot. This is why i stay on my fake page,” Braxton wrote, adding a laughing emoji.
Braxton later reposted her her tweet in an Instagram Story, captured by The Shade Room, with an additional message.
“We All Say Stupid S***,” she apparently wrote, adding a frowning face.
As previously reported, fans were in an uproar over Braxton’s comments, in which she equated a man’s lack of sexual advances toward women with homosexuality.
“So men can’t be in the mood, men can’t have medical problems, men can’t be tired as hell, men can’t be into YOU or feeling YOU,” shared one fan. “They’re gay if they don’t touch you for a certain amount of time. She tried it.”
“One minute women want men to respect them and not use them as objects and then when they get a respectful man that does just that…he’s gay,” wrote another. “This was a very creative way to say, “i’m insecure.”
Another fan called out Braxton for once again exploiting the LGBTQ community.
“Tamar Braxton worry about how you emulated your whole personality off of black gay men,” she wrote. “Without them you would be as dry as your scalp.”
