Tamar Braxton came under fire on Thursday morning after she posted a video which many social media users considered “blasphemous.”
In a clip shared on Braxton’s Instagram page, a man can be seen praise dancing in a white, two piece ensemble to Tamar’s “If I Don’t Have You.” In the video, the man dances in front of a cross and altar leading people to think the dance is disrespectful.
Tamar, however, defended the dancer and the video with a lengthy message that has since been deleted.
“How about EVERYONE (chair emoji)!!! Why is this man “praise dancing” in church blasphemy?? Don’t even try THAT,” she wrote. “This is HIS interpretation and I’m VERY saved and sensitive to my spirit!!! So vote on it and STOP being petty and silly and VOE or fill your heart with love and show respect for how someone wants [sic] to express themselves!!”
The Braxton Family Values star continued, “I’ve seen PLENTY of “praise dancing” AT church to R&B songs!!! U all have too!! So GET SOMEWHERE AND SAT DOWN!! I don’t cure nor am I talking about sex … (In my songs) I’m speaking about LOVE witch is what GOD is!!”
She concluded, “Most of you need JESUS! #imDONE.”
The pop star followed up with an apology which read.
“Like I said … This is first!! To the saved, not so saved, and people who judge everyone while they fall short … my bad, I wasn’t trying to offend you and your love for Christ!! I LOVE him too!! So pray for me. But this is this man interoperation and I FEEL he wasn’t trying to be disrespectful!! Sorry if I offended anyone PERSONALLY … BUT I’m not sorry for understanding his artistic interpretation. Get your life.”

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards
This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.
Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…
And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.
And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.
Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.
And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.
But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…
Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.
We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.
Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.
And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!
Do you agree with our hots and nots?
