R&B crooner Omarion is coming under heavy fire for a sentiment he shared via Twitter recently about members of the LGBT community.
The 26-year-old former B2K member revealed a rather eyebrow-raising confession with his more than 475,000 followers. “I don’t believe in Lesbians…they change around me…even if they just want to sample…I can be the example,” Omarion tweeted, though the post has since been deleted.
A closer look at his words indicates Omarion, born Omari Garndberry, seems to think that even if a woman claims to solely be interested in a same-sex partner, all their beliefs and notions go out the window when he’s in a self-professed lesbian’s presence. Basically, he claims he’ll make any lesbian straight.
While he could have linked the tweet to a joke or a song lyric, the deletion of it probably came as a result of backlash he surely received after posting his thoughts.
The GLAAD organization usually never hesitates to voice their opinion on high-profile entertainer’s speaking their mind on gays and lesbians, but they have yet to address Omarion’s remarks.
