Tamar Braxton has been surrounded by some controversy lately, as she made specific comments about gay men that were not accepted entirely positively by her followers and commenters in general.
However, it does not seem like the star is planning to bow down to the criticism anytime soon.
Entirely, on the contrary, she has taken a stand and has made various statements about her position that have reiterated her point over and over again: she is proud of who she is, and has no regrets in this regard.

Yesterday my @tamarbraxton , Beans and I hosted our first thanksgiving dinner as a family. My dynamic 80 year old mom, sister, brother-in-law and niece as well as more than 30 close friends of ours attended. We had a blast!!! It always amazes me to see how Tamar and my family took to each other from the moment they met back in Nigeria; they love her and she loves them right back. During dessert my mom stood up to speak and she called Tamar her daughter. I wasn’t surprised: my family took to Tamar’s gorgeous simile, deep kindness and infectious sense of humor almost as strongly as she took to my family’s deeply Christian, conservative, African roots. But what if my family hadn’t accepted her? As with a lot of African American families, many African parents and families tend to get too overly involved in their children’s relationships and married lives, often to the detriment of the young couple’s relationship (heck, I’ve seen some of my friends’ moms move into the couple’s home right after they got married, which so often makes life miserable for the daughter-in-law). I vowed that I would never put Tamar through the misery I’ve seen other couples go through with the man’s family. So I informed my family early on that they didn’t have a choice! They either love Tamar the way they love me and accept her the way I accept her….or they risk losing me completely. Needless to say, I needn’t have worried!! My mom treats Tamar like her 4th daughter (I have 3 sisters) and Beans like her 13th grandchild, my sisters cherish her the way they do each other, and my brothers adore my @tamarbraxton almost as much as I do. Welcome to the Adefeso family, Tamar!! I am so grateful and give thanks that God brought you and Beans into my life. A word to all the young, strong brothas out there who are in relationships with our beautiful black sistas: please stand up for your girl! Once you pick her she becomes your #1 in life; and she comes before the rest of your family: before your mom, sisters, and before even you!! And that’s how to keep a happy home! #happythanksgiving #godblessournewfamily ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Braxton specifically addressed some statements that have been made against her on social media recently, such as the claim of a man who had a dream where she was begging him to take her back after a breakup.
And according to Braxton, even though this has happened once in her past, she was no longer the type of woman who would ever go through that and bring herself down in such a manner.
She wrote: “These dudes are seriously crazy. On my death bed, my last breath will NEVER be….ooooh, please take me back!! See, back then, I didn’t let him know I knew my worth!!!! I probably had him thinking he means more to me than me meaning more to me, and that’s MY fault!!” Tamar continued to add words of wisdom for anyone in a similar situation. “We treat people how to treat us. If you stand for bullsh*t, that’s what you are going to get. If you demand respect, you’ll be treated as such!! Some of you’ll got theses dudes heads swollen!! Take a stand and do right by you for once!”
Her recent statements have been met with even more controversy by some of her fans, and it seems like her followers are a bit divided over whether or not she is going too far with her attitude.
One person had this reaction: “This time it isn’t the message, it’s the messenger. She needs to beg herself to come back to herself.”
Another commenter brought up Tiny Harris who recently spoke about T.I.’s infidelities: “Something Tiny needs to tell TIP!!🤣🤣🤣”
One thing is certain, though — Tamar Braxton herself is probably the last person to be bothered by that right now.
It remains to be seen if she will make any more comments about the situation in the future, or if she will move on with her life and keep looking forward instead.
