Masika Kalysha Clarifies That She Is Not Homophobic After Her Post About Not Wanting Her Daughter To See 'Adam And Steve' Kiss Goes Viral
Masika Kalysha usually makes headlines for her drama with baby daddy Fetty Wap and his other baby mama Alexis Skyy. This time the Love and hip Hop alum has gone viral for a post some found to be homophobic.
The reality star posted a photo of a message that read: 'It's not about homosexuality or heterosexuality. Stop promoting sexuality to children period. Let kids be kids.'
She added her own caption that read: 'This is for the fools that thinks it’s “progressive” when Disney has a gay couple kissing next to Nemo... NO #KB ain’t watching Adam and Eve in sexual situations the hell u think I’m supposed to let her watch Adam and Steve lip lockin for. It’s not progressive it’s SUGGESTIVE and I suggest you let a child be a child.'
The photo was reposted by multiple blogs. In the comment section of the Shade Room, stars like Phaedra Parks, T.I, and Tami Roman agreed.
Meanwhile, many people took it as homophobic due to the fact that most kid's shows cover crushes, kissing, and more.
One follower wrote: 'I love you sis but, Disney movies have always had an element of romance whether it be little mermaid beauty and the beast repunzel or lion king. This is a rhetoric that continues to keep us in shadows or “sexualize” the love that is shared between two people especially homosexual men. Everything we do is seen as sexual.'
Another added: 'I get it but at the same time there are kids who have 2 moms or 2 dads, It’s not forcing sexuality on them , it’s simply educating kids on things they might have been confused about.'
This commentator scolded: 'She made this post and then completely contradicted yourself in the comments! This post was directed at progressive individuals and inclusivity if the gay community! If you meant any and all kissing, marriage, love stories in children’s shows you would have said that but you specifically aimed at the gay community!'
Masika completed an interview with TMZ soon after where she claimed that she didn't want any kind of PDA around her daughter. She insisted that she wasn't being homophobic because she doesn't even want Khari Barbie to see a husband kiss his wife goodbye.
