Did You Miss It? Tamar Braxton Clears Up Perceived “Homophobic Criticism” of Lil Nas X #BETAwards Performance

For many, Tamar Braxton is a polarizing figure in the LGBTQ+ community.

While some praise the GRAMMY-nominated songstress as an ally given her legion of gay fans as well as her adjacency to the culture evidenced by her mannerisms and vernacular, others have alleged her allyship is performative – citing her repeated history of using language that’s been deemed ‘insensitive’ and ‘homophobic.’

The latter was a term pelted the way of the R&B diva just this week as social media users clocked her response to anti-Lil Nas X commentary regarding his controversial BET Awards performance.

Did you miss the action when it first happened? See how it unfolded inside:

As we reported here, LNX had some 2021 BET Awards viewers in an uproar after he engaged in a same-sex lip lock with a background dancer during his ‘Call Me By Your Name’ performance.

Among those was comedian Deon Anderson, better known by his stage name DaRealSupaBihh.  Despite openly being a member of the LGBTQ+ community himself, Anderson took to social media to assert LNX’s performance was irresponsible, promoted promiscuity, and could’ve been better used to promote HIV/AIDS education – commentary that received a nod from Braxton in the form of fire emojis (which suggested she approved the message).

Once users noticed the comment from Tamar’s verified account, they went in.

Ouch!  With yet another battle waged against her good name, the ‘Love & War’ songstress quickly took to Twitter to clarify her stance.

    Why y’all shocked? The black community is EXTREMELY homophobic and unaccepting.

      Just like the evil KKK and overwhelmingly white Republican Party

        That doesn’t exist anymore😝 This isn’t the 1920s it’s the 2020s. I mean when have you seen anyone walking around in KKK outfits?! SCREAMING 🤣🤣🤣

    People go around calling anybody a homophobic. They believe anything negative about her and it’s sad. Homophobic is the matter of hating gays — which she does not. She made it clear (on BIGO live) that she did not watch the video but was complimenting his looks (which is casual if you go through Supa’s page). How would she be agreeing with him when she was just giving LNX props (on twitter) a day prior? She said Supa deleted her comment because she was getting backlash over the “🔥🔥” emojis. The only thing they SHOULD be getting on her for is commenting at the wrong moment or not reading prior. This is the same woman who was just getting dragged by Angela Stanton because she (Tamar) supports her trans child. Even then, Tamar respectfully stood by her support. A large majority of her friends/staff are GAY. She expresses her support to the community constantly for y’all to be bashing her over a misinterpreted comment. They literally took the focus off Supa and placed it on Tamar. She is not his parent to be policing him. As she said, you can support friends without supporting (/agreeing with..) them all of the time.

      Bla bla bla bish

      Remember when she accused her ex of being gay because he didnt want sèxxx from her everyday , morning, afternoon and night?

      Tamar is that type of woman that hang around gay people but if she discovers her son is gay, she will literally kìll him

      Tamar is that type of straight woman that uses the word “gay” as an insult to men who dont find her attractive.

      Tamar is in the same category with city girls who like hanging around that internet personality Santana, but will never accept their kid if he turns out to be like santana

      You prove yourself to be very uninformed and of low IQ. Keep being spoon-fed by Joe Biden and the Democrats to stay a house negro 💯

      • BoyBye2.0 July 3, 2021

        I’m sure don’t see anyone who supports Joe, having the Confederate flag hanging outside their house, like those Republicans. so you can get lost with that dense dodo bird gaslighting BS.

    We been here many times before—

    It was just a mistake again, right?

    Chiiiiiiiile !!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Hmm July 3, 2021

    Tamar had better tread lightly!!!! If it weren’t for gays “doing the most” she wouldn’t be who she is. Her entire image on down to her verbiage is heavily influenced and inspired by flamboyant black gay men and black gay culture. She better keep it cute!

  6. Keith July 3, 2021

    Talk less, sing more Tamar…PLEASE. I swear, that girl STAY in trouble because of something she said.

    • akathexfactor July 4, 2021

      Lol 💯
