‘Queen of Gospel’ Shirley Caesar received a royal backlash on Twitter this week after indirectly throwing her support to fellow gospel hitmaker Kim Burrell after the latter was slammed for a fiery anti-LGBT sermon.

As Burrell continues to lose everything from endorsements to promotional spots, Caesar – probably fearing the same was forthcoming – quickly tried to clarify her stance on the LGBT community by taking to Facebook to issue a statement.

Asserting the viral clip of her speaking was “taken out of context,” tuck in below to the gospel legend claim the true intent behind words:

    Girl bye! She sees what’s happing to her church sister and doesn’t want to be affiliated anymore. Lmao keep church, preachers (etc.) and religion out of pop and entertainment culture. They are doing it for the wrong reason now. Take away their podium!

    Shirley Ceasar Salad HAVE A SEAT!!! The into reason she speaking is be because the LGBT & the Industry have snatched Kim’s wig and money source… Now Shirley is worried about her career bring next since she wanted to consign!

      Shirley has had a consistent career for 65 years. Do you really think she gives a damn at this point in her career? Kim is crying about a Grammy while Shirley has 11. Shirley didn’t even say anything wrong, but then again she’s not chasing behind the queens like Kim.

    When are we all gonna realise that this is a CHRISTIAN view. Why are we surprised

    • BonBon January 7, 2017

      Because we don’t have the same tolerance for other religions…why is Christianity the only one to get a pass?

    Lmaoooo! Shirley ain’t about to play with y’all. She said don’t come for me unless I send for you. But notice, she did not defend Kim Burrell. She just wanted to let y’all know that she still need all her jobs lol. She loves gays, straights, Caucasians, Asians, Latinos, Blatinos YOU NAME IT!

    Both of theses hypocrites can kiss my ass. Don’t want to be called out? Keep your mouth shut!

  10. JazSullivan January 7, 2017

    Shirley didn’t even say anything WRONG! She simply asked why Kim didn’t say anything when gay marriage was legalized a few years ago! I swear y’all just sit around and wait to “drag” people. Are your lives that miserable? Shirley is knocking at 80’s door….leave her alone!

    • Dale January 11, 2017

      The video tape is out there!! You’re wrong. She did NOT “simply” ask why Kim didnt say something earlier…. she said kim should have said something four years ago “when our president made that stuff alright”… then implied people shoyld turn in their cellphones during service so they dont get caught. She defended hate speech. Point blank and period. Also, i dont care how long she been in the business. Just 2 months ago, she was all over tv and radio talking about beans and greens. Her career was revitalized. So, she DOES care, you might not, but she surely does!!!

  11. The Wig Snatcher January 7, 2017

    Shirley, girl. Keep it, sis! I’m not buying that “apology.”

    • Iris January 8, 2017

      She didn’t apology, she just brought clarity to the soundbite that was taken out of context. Besides, Ms Caesar is almost 80, has over 60 years in the gospel music industry and 11 Grammys

  12. joselinefan_xo January 7, 2017

    aww that was sweet and genuine. I bet most of yall didn’t even peep the whole vid just a bunch of bitter nancies who stay sensitive af. this is LIFE bishes…curve balls will be thrown so deal with it!! Stop tearing down gods ppl and deal with your displaced aggression. Learn to forgive! Don’t put shirley in the same sinking boat as kim. shirl has never went out her way to tear down the lgbt community through sermons and her music.

    • Dale January 11, 2017

    Everybody is forced to be gay, act gay, like gays or be jobless. I wish racism was taken as seriously.

    Why are most of the threads now full of gravatar less randoms? Where are the vets? Thatgrapejuice is truly dying

    • BonBon January 8, 2017

      Vets? On a website comment thread…Do you realize how pathetic and lifeless you just came across?

  17. AALIYAH Dana carter January 8, 2017

    Anyways, is anybody surprised she back tracked? Mrs. Shirely saw how the gays were PUNCHING out kim so she had to set the record straight before she can’t afford beans and greens kii. Trust me this mindset is very common in the black community and black churches.

    Aside from homophobia, God is man made in man’s image on steroids. I struggle to understand as I have since kindergarten why people cling onto nothing. Nothing that has been demonstrated to exist, even in the phase of scientific progress people are still ignorant.

    It is very sad.

    I have a dream, that one day we will be liberated from stupidity. That we will look back and be ashamed that we once convinced each other of such

    https://youtu.be/8r-e2NDSTuE

    And as for Christian feminists and gay preachers… it’s really condescending. Why do you continue to pretend that this religion is not misogynistic, homophobic and proslavery? What is the point?
