Ellen boots Kim Burrell from her show after gospel singer goes on anti-gay rant during church sermon

Anti-gay gospel singer Kim Burrell will not be appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week as scheduled.

Ellen has posted a short tweet which stated: ‘For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show.’

Burrell went on a massive anti-gay rant over the weekend warning that all homosexuals will die in 2017.

In a sermon, she claimed homosexuality is an evil spirit and blames gay men for the spread of AIDS.

She also said homosexuality embarrasses the kingdom of God.

Burrell, featured on a song with Pharrell Williams entitled I See a Victory, is a pastor who told her congregation: ‘Anybody in this room who is filled with the homosexual spirit, pray God to free you.’

She also said: ‘That perverted, homosexual spirit is a spirit of delusion and confusion. If you, as a man, will open your mouth and take a man’s penis in your face, you are perverted. If you are a woman and you shake your breasts in another woman’s face, you are perverted.’

7 Remarks

  1. Kim Burrell is proof that religious extremism is not solely restricted to Islam. Burrell is proof that Christianity has its share of trolls, bigots and nutters as well.

  2. Too bad she didn’t keep her on the schedule. It would’ve been a perfect opportunity for Ellen to bust her ass. But then come to think of it, Ellen’s show is kind of light entertainment and about being kind.

    Actually, people like Kim Burrell don’t bother me. It’s the ones that smile to our faces, acting all accepting and then stab us in the back at the voting booth. Those are the ones that bug the shit out of me.

  3. @K. Martinez-I absolutely agree. It would have been interesting to see that bigot squirm on Ellen’s show.

  4. K. Martinez, I thought about that too. Then I realized this woman is going to let it wash off of her like water off a duck’s ass. She’ll be polite enough that Ellen would only look like a militant asshole in trying to push her into talking about her bigotry.

    So I think it speaks more about Ellen to just not engage with someone so bigoted.

  5. She must not have wanted to be on the Ellen show. She is really sad.

  6. Proud of Ellen! It’s her show and she can invite and un-invite people to be on her show any way she sees fit. Good call on this beyotch. Burrell’s timing is perfect too. I was interested in seeing her movie, but now I won’t waste my time OR money.

  7. God does not make garbage
