Anthony Antoine wants Kim Burrell and her anti-gay bullsh*t outta here! After the gospel legend condemned all gays to death in 2017 in her recent viral video, this is Anthony’s response about her January 5th ‘Ellen’ appearance via petition on Change.org:
Dear Ellen DeGeneres, The Ellen DeGeneres Show & Pharrell Williams: Please DO NOT allow gospel singer Kim Burrell to perform on your show January 5th promoting the Hidden Figures movie after her rant from the pulpit December 30th (since removed yet captured by shocked fans and reposted) essentially condemning gays to death in 2017. This type of rhetoric is dangerous – especially to young LGBT people who love and support your show and who have been inspired by the movie Hidden Figures that carries a message of affirming ones ability and merit, not diminishing it based on gender (or race, or sexuality and more). Please stop her & teach her and others like her who hate, a powerful lesson in 2017 – that this type of speech & loathing must stop. It is killing LGBT people and has for decades. And we as a Community must stand together for Our freedom to BE!
Please send a strong message that We must not support artists, singers, churches and efforts that do not support Us. Please stand firm on this #TheEllenShow. Don’t allow this type of person to be promoted. #ISeeAVictory in stopping her and sending a strong, powerful message of love and support to LGBT people. Pharrell and Hidden Figures movie should stop all promotion that includes gospel singer Kim Burrell who clearly detests LGBT people; one who’d speak so clearly to diminish Our right and freedom to live and thrive in 2017 and who has since defended her statements captured in the hateful video. Let’s STOP HER together!
The ever opinionated Walter Hampton II has a response you must watch. Press play.
