The R&B singer has been on the receiving end of a social media lashing today.
Why, you may wonder?
Well, his comments about fellow ‘Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood’ cast-mate Milan weren’t perhaps as politically correct as intended.
Full story below…
As reported, the the aspiring rapper is said be receiving a tough time from other males on the show, with the reason cited being his sexuality and lack of star status (ironic on too many levels, but we digress).
TMZ caught up with Omarion and quizzed the ‘Post To Be’ crooner on this thoughts on the matter.
His response was muddled, arguably offensive, but most of all confusing – in both content and delivery. Check it out:
So, on the one hand, he seemed nauseated by the whole topic, insisting “they can keep that motherf**king sh*t far away from my storyline.” Yet, he follows that up with a backhanded declaration of support by empathising with Milan just wanting to “get money.”
To make matters muckier, his statement that gay is “popular right now” (and the suggestion that producers are smart to capitalize on that) derailed what was already a shaky train of conversation.
Granted it’s clear to see “some” of what Omari was trying to say, there were one too many foot-in-mouth moments to muster up any kind of defence for him. Put simply, the lashing is deserved.
For now, though, we’ll listen to this and reminisce. Be sure to let us know your thoughts below…
