Kim Burrell’s condemnation of homosexuality in a sermon that went public has sparked a response from Frank Ocean’s mom. If you recall, we previously mentioned that the gospel artist’s words were immediately deemed hateful and denounced by Janelle Monae, Pharrell Williams, and other Hidden Figures castmates.

Well, not too long ago, Burrell teamed up with Ocean for his track Godspeed, which is featured on the film’s soundtrack. Considering that Ocean has been open about his bisexuality, this comes as a surprise to his mother, who had this to say on Twitter:

I mean damn. Hypocrisy and the inciting of hate pisses me off. Opportunistic &?%#€!!

Me: Son, can we crop Kim Burrells voice out of your song??

Additionally, Ellen Degeneres, who is an out lesbian, has nixed Burrell from her show sharing these words on Twitter:

For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show.

Do you agree with the “hypocrisy” statement by Ocean’s mom?
