Ashanti receives Twitter backlash after homophobic comment

By Amy Michura,

Actress and R&B singer, Ashanti received Twitter backlash as many of her followers saw a comment she made as homophobic.

Ashanti had been on twitter wanting to discuss the NFL final that occurred Jan. 19. She wrote, “Who ya’ll got??? Seahawks or 49ers???”

The star, will be releasing her fifth album Braveheart on Feb. 18.

Obviously, Ashanti didn’t fully think her response through. She has been working on more projects than most know. She can be seen on the Lifetime show, Army Wives. In November she released a single, I Got It featuring Rick Ross, and on Dec. 7 she starred in the Lifetime movie Christmas in the City.

Still, many of her fans did not appreciate or find the tweet funny. They expected more from her considering she is a public figure. Some individuals responded back to her showing their disappointment in her.

With her album coming out next month, may this have an impact on its sales?
