Simi has been receiving many mixed comments after issuing an apology to the LGBTQ community for several homophobic remarks she made months ago.
Among them was that homosexuality is “not natural” and that she hasn’t seen any “biological proof”. The backlash quickly flooded social media but she didn’t address it up until Tuesday August 4.
However, it coincided with the time her husband Adekunle Gold took to Instagram to unveil his feature in an LGBTQ+ centered magazine. At first, many accepted her apology and said it was sincere. Then people discovered the magazine, felt betrayed and accused Simi of only apologizing to prevent a backlash from the community.
The backlash came eventually and members of the LGBTQ community tagged the editor of the queer magazine and demanded that Gold’s feature be taken down because his wife is homophobic and his views don’t represent them.
It appears the feature was eventually taken down because Gold soon deleted the caption that was directing people to the link to his interview.
Reacting to the backlash, Adekunle Gold said his wife’s apology was “a pure and simple coincidence”. He added that she had “no idea about this or any interview whatsoever.” He went on to extol his wife’s qualities, pointing out that she’s “a beautiful, kind, and loving person.”
He added that people make mistakes and he begged people to consider her apology and give her a chance. Read the rest of his apology below.
