Ashanti under fire for allegedly anti-gay tweet

Ashanti - 2013

In the world of R&B music, Ashanti has always been known as one of the good girls and she’s rarely gotten herself involved with any type of drama or controversy. But controversy certainly came knocking on her door Sunday night when the singer posted what some considered to be a homophobic tweet.

While talking football with her Twitter fans, Ashanti asked her 1.5 million followers, “who ya’ll got” for the winning team in the NFC Championship Game, either the Seattle Seahawks or the San Francisco 49ers?

That’s when one Twitter user responded with a scathing diss to her music. However, Ashanti didn’t take the jab lightly and she fired back with a comment that has many people up in arms.
