An 'American Idol' is furious that her words (which she wrote and posted to Instagram) have been taken "out of context."
Fantasia Barrino, the season three winner, commented originally with "I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERNMENT THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!! Its a lot that going on that the Bible speaks about we should Not be doing. Weed legal in some places, Gay Marriage Legal BUT YET IM JUDGED!!! I'm not doing Nothing for you… My Life!!!!"
Apparently readers of that took it "out of context" and thought it was negative towards gay marriage. Fantasia quickly tried to do some damage control.
"NOW I'M ANGRY. MY WHOLE TEAM IS GAY, MY MANAGER IS GAY, MIDDLE FINGER UP TO THOSE WHO SEAK [sic] TO DESTROY ME. IT WON'T WORK," she wrote. "MY STATEMENT WAS TO THOSE WHO SIT BACK AND TRY TO JUDGE ME. CAN’T GO IN ON ME ABOUT THE BIBLE..CAUSE NOTHING IS LIKE THE BIBLE NOW..THAT’S ALL I MEANT. I DON’T JUDGE ANYBODY!!"
Fantasia was "blown away" at the reaction to her words. Of course, no one was talking about her before this incident and now they are, so I guess she achieved her desired end state.
Was she taken out of context?
