Frank Ocean’s Mom Asks Him To Remove Singer Kim Burrell Off Of “Godspeed” Following Homophobic Sermon

Preach!

Kim Burrell buried her career this week when a homophobic church sermon she gave went viral. In the clip, she can be heard describing homosexuality as “perverted” and called it a “sin... against the nature of God.”

“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, and it’s caused us pain on the body of Christ,” she said, according to the video.

“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 continued.

The hate-speech not only booted Burrell from her upcoming appearance on Ellen this week with Pharrell (the two were scheduled to sing “I See a Victory” from the Hidden Figures soundtrack), but prompted Frank Ocean's mom, Katonya Breaux, to ask her son to remove Burrell off of Blonde track “Godspeed.”

Ocean came out in 2012 before the release of Channel Orange.




Pharrell and Hidden Figures soundtrack singer Janelle Monae have since condemned Burrell's hate speech.
