Former American Idol champion Fantasia Barrino slams gay marriage in online rant

'Gay Marriage Legal BUT YET I'M JUDGED!'

Former American Idol champion Fantasia Barrino slams gay marriage in online rant

Fantasia Barrino, the singer who managed to beat Jennifer Hudson and all other challengers to win season three of American Idol, apparently has a problem with gay marriage.

The Grammy winner took to her Intragram account and posted a rant which read in part: ‘Its a lot going on that the Bible speaks about we should Not be doing: Weed legal in some places, Gay Marriage Legal BUT YET IM JUDGED!!!’

Once the rant appeared on the Good As You blog and spread, a spokesman for Barrino released a statement saying her words were taken out of context: ‘Ms. Barrino is not now, nor has she ever been an opponent of the LGBT community. She has supported and performed at numerous events that are sponsored by the LGBT community. Whether it’s through a live performance or placement on social media, Ms. Barrino uses every opportunity to reach out and connect with her fans, all of her fans.’

While Barrino, 28, has not reached the level of such American Idol alums as Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, she has had one of the more successful post-Idol careers with three hit albums and playing the role of Celie on Broadway and in the national tour of the musical The Color Purple.

Her personal life has made headlines including a suicide attempt, being accused in a divorce case of stealing a woman’s husband, and having a second child as a single mother.
