Tamar Braxton may have taken to the ‘Wendy Williams Show’ to proclaim she is trying to live a drama free life these days (click here to watch), but she must have had a relapse if the unceremonious dragging she received on Twitter is to judge by.
The 41-year-old, no stranger to sister groups and certainly not to the Gospel arena’s influence, opted to come for the wig (literally) of one of The Anointed Pace Sisters – one of the genre’s most revered familial ensembles. A nine sister composite known for their soaring harmonies and spirited vocal stylings, Lashun Pace may be the most famous of the siblings for her timeless Gospel classic, ‘I Know I’ve Been Changed,’ but the collective has been royally praised for hits like ‘When God is in the Building,’ ‘Safety Zone,’ and more.
After Beyonce‘s mom, Tina Knowles-Lawson, recently took to social media to post a video of sister Duranice Pace singing “Amazing Grace,” some followers caught wind of a comment left by Braxton:
“Yeah but the wig is stressing me out.”
Needless to say, the Sisters – along with the help of angry fans, Gospel music lovers, and the Holy Spirit – got Braxton “to and gether” for the infraction. Details inside:

After Braxton left her nasty comment on the video above, Lashun first weighed in with:
“I love my oldest sister! With everything she has gone through in life she is yet singing through it all. Touch not mine anointed @tamarbraxton.”
Later, Leslie Pace shared a Facebook Live video. Watch below:
“For those of you that have seen my sister in the past few years, she doesn’t have long, lengthy, beautiful hair. She didn’t shave her hair because she wanted to. She shaved her hair because of the medication and everything that she’s been going through. But I didn’t come on here for that because I don’t have to defend my sister. My sister is a beautiful person, whether she has long hair or the short hair that she’s rocking…
Tamar always talking about “hallelu” and talking about Jesus. But I don’t think she understands Jehovah. I don’t think you understand, Ms. Braxton, about touching God’s anointed. I don’t think you ever read the story about the people, the children that were picking at the prophet with the bald head. And two bears came out of the woods and annihilated them. I don’t think you’ve seen that one. You probably haven’t seen it because most people like you, unless it’s on tv or you tell somebody tell you, you don’t know the word of the Lord. So I get it. I get that you are insecure and you are hurting, so you want to hurt someone else. I understand. I get it that when you hear anointing, it bothers you because you don’t have it. I can get with that. But the thing about the anointing my sister has, that yoke that’s in your life, if you let her sing and pray for you long enough, it will break off and you won’t be evil. Because I know that you really don’t like being evil but because it has gotten you so much attention to this day, then therefore you live in it. But God has more for you, precious. He wants you to be delivered, he wants you to be free. He wants you to really be happy. There is happiness out there for you, in Jesus. But you first have to be delivered.
When I first read your comment, I went into little sister mode. I was five years old swinging. I was hot. But then I saw. I read your comments but then I read your spirit and I saw that you’re broken. I saw that you are hurt. I saw that you are insecure and I don’t fault you for your comments because those are the kind of comments that insecure people make about another singer. They try to find something take away. You couldn’t take away the voice, you couldn’t take away the anointing, you can’t take away how she made you feel. So that spirit wouldn’t let you rest and let her be who she is. You had to say something that was ugly and evil…
When your spirit is tainted and dark and hurt and bruised, the only thing that came out of you is dark, tainted, dark and bruised things…
I defended you. I would defend her to other people, Tamar. I knew that you needed help but I just didn’t realize that it was really that deep that you would touch somebody that loves the Lord and was only trying to do good….”
Needless to say, there were a few commenters who were a bit less tactful with their criticisms.
