Tamera Mowry-Housely Accused of ‘Cooning’, Receives Backlash For Comments On Gun Control

As we previously reported, the niece of Tamera Mowry-Housley and her husband Adam Housley was one of the victims of last week’s tragic Thousand Oaks shooting. Since then, Tamera, Adam, and Adam’s brother Arik, sat down for an interview regarding the death of Alaina Housley. However, Tamera is receiving backlash over her comments on gun control. Tamera said:

“I would love for this situation to be a catalyst for change. But I don’t automatically want to make it political, cause when you do that, you shut people out. I think if we can make it about mankind, we start with ourselves. You start with decency, you start with imagining, ‘Wait a minute, what if that was my child, or my niece, or my cousin?’ It will get you in a place of just having some sort of human decency. When you focus on that, then you naturally want to start change.”

Many social media users criticized Tamera over her seemingly political stance on the Thousand Oaks shooting. Instagrammer @fr33_spirit3 feels that Tamera only cares because gun violence has now directly affected her family – specifically, her husband Adam’s white family. Her comment reads:

“Stop cooning @tameramowrytwo and speak on the real issues!!! Stop soft stepping and beating around the bush or her death is in vain!!!”

Tamera Mowry-Housley justifiably took offense to the comment. She responded,

“You are apart of the problem. This is the prime example I spoke about in my interview. If you have love in your heart. You don’t talk this way. You obviously missed the message. And don’t you ever judge the death of my niece.”
