Shamea Morton Speaks Out After Eva Marcille Calls Her ‘Homophobic’
theJasmineBRAND exclusively reports, Shamea Morton is addressing claims that she is homophobic by Eva Marcille. Last night, Eva took to social media calling her homophobic or homophobic adjacent. On Sunday night’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, Shamea asked Eva if she ever dated singer Missy Elliott. See the clip.
In response to the question about Eva’s sexuality, the America’s Next Top model alum tweeted the following:
Shamea spoke to us exclusively, telling us that she’s far from homophobic and her comments to Eva were not digs at the LGBTQ community. She explains,
I am far from homophobic – I have people in my family that are both lesbian and gay. So it saddens me to hear her come to that conclusion from me simply asking her about her sexuality. It’s unfortunate that some people just can’t stand behind their truth. They feel its deemed deviant or looked down upon. We are ok to love who we love. I just felt Eva wasn’t doing that. I could’ve asked her in a nicer/ more pleasant way but I was definitely not taking digs at the LGBTQ community. I am constantly working close with people from the LGBTQ community and I will continue to be an advocate for human rights!
A close associate of Shamea’s defended the reality star telling us,
I can personally attest to Shamea’s character as well as her genuine love, support, and dedicated friendships and relationships within the LGBTQ community. Shamea and I have not only worked closely together in professional settings, but we have also built an amazing friendship and trust for one another over the years. The fact that anyone would ever attempt to falsely and indirectly imply that Shamea is homophobic is not only deplorable, but also extremely careless and refutable.
Shamea has never exemplified any discriminatory prejudice, violence, or irrational fear towards anyone that may identify as non-heterosexual. Many of her very close personal and professional relationships encompass and revolve around the LGBTQ community. She is one of, if not the most accepting and genuine people I have ever encountered; almost to a fault where she wears her heart on her sleeve. Shamea’s constant love and support for myself and other members of the LGBTQ community is absolutely undeniable. Any duplicitous attempt to attach such a bogus narrative of homophobia to her character is pathetic, unsupported and sadly dangerous. There are authentic conversations that we should be having regarding actual instances of sexual prejudice, but this is simply not one of them.
