Singer, songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams did not hold back his disdain of recent comments made my veteran gospel singer, Kim Burrell. She recently was video taped preaching a sermon that touched on her views of homosexuality.
“I came to tell you about sin. That sin nature. That perverted homosexual spirit, and the spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women.” She goes on to say, “You as a man, you open your mouth and take a man’s penis in your face, you are perverted. You are a woman and will shake your face in another woman’s breast, you are perverted.”
Burrell and Williams have recently partnered on the soundtrack for the highly anticipated film, “Hidden Figures”, and were scheduled to appear together on “Ellen” later this week.
Pharrell took to Instagram, expressing his thoughts on the comments. “I condemn hate speech of any kind. There is no room in this world fro any kind of prejudice. My greatest hope is for inclusion and love for all humanity in 2017 and beyond.”
He’s not the only celebrity who has spoken out against Kim. Janelle Monae, Questlove, and Yolanda Adams have all condemned the singer for what many are calling a hate speech.
