The L’s just keep getting handed to ‘Victory’ singer Kim Burrell.

The embattled gospel singer, whose anti-LGBT sermon from last week landed her in hot water with the community and its supporters, is continuing to see endorsements snatched from her.  After learning her appearance on ‘Ellen’ had been cancelled, the revered songstress learned her radio and television programming had been snatched from their respective points of air.

As if that wasn’t enough, yesterday she was greeted with news from BMI that she’d been uninvited from an awards ceremony honoring songwriters.

pharrell-kim-burrell-tgj

Since the onset of the New Year, gospel singer Kim Burrell has been embroiled in a colossal scandal centered on a homophobic sermon.

Indeed, as reported, a video hit the web of the “pastor” branding gay people as “perverted” and implying that they will die in 2017.

The fall-out / fall from grace has been well-documented, with a horde of names publicly lashing Burrell. A list that includes Yolanda Adams, Chaka Khan, and Octavia Spencer.

Perhaps most notable was Ellen Degeneres, who control, alt, deleted a scheduled performance from Burrell on her show.

Pharrell Williams, who she was set to perform with, did still appear and addressed the drama head-on.

Backlash: Shirley Caesar Under Fire For Defending Kim Burrell & Slamming Gay Marriage

shirley-caesar-kim-burrell-thatgrapejuice

Legendary ‘Hold My Mule’ hitmaker Shirley Caesar probably should’ve held her tongue if the fiery backlash that ensued after her vocal support of fellow gospel songstress, Kim Burrell, is anything to judge by.

The Grammy winning gospel pioneer – who was the center of the late 2016 viral #Unameit challenge – is seeing her name fly atop headlines for not only condoning Burrell’s highly publicized, anti-LGBT sermon but even going so far as to slam Pres. Obama for the legalization of gay marriage.

She may have served us beans, greens, potatoes, and tomatoes over the holidays, but now Twitter is serving her something else.  See it all below:

Petitions In Support Of Kim Burrell Gain Momentum Online

kim-burrell-that-grape-juice-2016-10

It seems that for every Kim Burrell critic calling for her to be blacklisted there is a supporter armed and ready to defend her.

Arguably the most-hated woman in America following the unearthing of a Biblical-based assault launched at openly gay men and women, Burrell learned that her remarks had cost her an appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show.’

Ellen’s move was lauded by those who argued Burrell’s remarks were hateful, hurtful and divisive.

However, rising from the shadows are those who believe that Burrell is being unfairly punished.

Why?

Freedom of speech.

Today is just not Kim Burrell‘s day.  Scratch that, so far 2017 isn’t Kim Burrell’s year.

The fiery gospel singer/pastor whose viral homophobic sermon landed her in hot water with former supporters, friends, activists, and even Ellen Degeneres (whose talk show Kim was due to visit in support of the ‘Hidden Figures’ soundtrack) now has a new enemy to add to the growing list:  Frank Ocean‘s mom Katonya Breaux Riley.

Tamar Braxton Slammed For Defending Kim Burrell

‘We Need To Show Her Love & Pray For Her,’ says Grammy-nominated singer about Gospel star

tamar-braxton-kim-burrell-thatgrapejuice

Tamar Braxton is among many Urban stars who have long made their adoration of gospel singer Kim Burrell no secret.  Yet, despite the embattled holy hitmaker seeing her name run atop headlines for a fiery anti-LGBTQ sermon preached last week (a feat that led to her being booted from a scheduled appearance on the ‘Ellen’ show), Braxton maintains her loyalty to the revered songstress.

Amidst a slew of her own negative headlines that suggest she and former ‘The Real’ co-star, Adrienne Bailon, are at war, the ‘Love & War’ wailer took to Instagram to encourage followers to show sympathy to Burrell.  The request landed Braxton in a hot seat herself:

Ellen Degeneres Confirms Kim Burrell Will NOT Appear on Her Show

ellen-degeneres-kim-burrell-thatgrapejuice

After ending 2016 with a homophobic sermon that set the net ablaze, gospel hitmaker Kim Burrell was hit with a number of online attacks from former supporters, LGBT activists, and concerned viewers.

While the onslaught of commentary garnered a fiery response from Burrell, her “clean-up” only seemed to worsen the matter and helped ignite a petition to see her booted from appearing on Ellen Degeneres’ daytime talk show to promote the film ‘Hidden Figures’ (January 6th).

Per an announcement this morning from the movie’s star, Janelle Monae, Burrell had indeed been booted from appearing on the show.  Now, for whatever doubt may have lingered after the fact, Degeneres took to Twitter to offer the official news of the chop:

Petition Started To Block Kim Burrell From Appearing on ‘Ellen’ After Anti-LGBT Rant

kim-burrell-thatgrapejuice-ellen-petition

Gospel hitmaker Kim Burrell isn’t exactly kicking her new year off in the best of lights.

After making headlines for a homophobic sermon where she directly stated insinuated homosexuals will “die in 2017,” the revered singer/songwriter has been fielding attacks from media, supporters, fans, and friends.  Even friends Yolanda Adams and Pharrell Williams have spoken out against her rant and branded it “hate speech.”

Ironically, despite making her stance on homosexuality well known in the sermon, Burrell – who has worked with Frank Ocean among a number of other LGBT stars – is set to appear on ‘Ellen’ in the coming days.  Well, that is, unless a recently ignited petition has its say.
