T.I. — Podcast Hosts Release Statement & Apologize Following Rapper Revealing He Goes With Daughter To Her Gyn
The hosts of the Ladies Like Us podcast have gotten almost as much backlash as T.I. The rapper sparked controversy when he revealed he goes with his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah Harris to her OB-GYN appointments to make sure she’s still a virgin.
The hosts, Nazanin Mandi (wife of singer Miguel) and Nadia Moham released a statement via social media Thursday (Nov. 7).
“To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of ‘Ladies Like Us,’ we want to start off by saying that we sincerely apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic. We were completely caught off guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment.”
“The comments that were made and the reaction that followed are not in any way a reflection of our personal views on the topic. We support and love Women and feel that their bodies are theirs to do as they wish. There was absolutely no ill intent towards any party involved & feel deeply awful about the entire incident.”
They went on to write,
“We are not perfect, take full accountability of our lack of action & are continuously learning along the way. We know an apology doesn’t make this go away but we welcome the discussion — that’s what our podcast is about.”
