Sherri Shepherd Clarifies & Apologizes For Anti-Gay Comments
Sherri Shepherd took time on Tuesday's episode of The View to clarify and apologize for statements made on during an interview with Alicia Menendez on the Fusion network, which many deemed to be homophobic.
Sherri said on Tuesday:
"Working on a talk show that's centered in the opinion business, there's been several things that I've shared in the press that have upset people, and typically I don't respond to the criticism. However, I'd like to say I'm truly sorry to anyone I've offended with the viewpoints I express on Alicia Menendez's Tonight on the Fusion network.
My interview was misrepresented, and only a portion of my comments were used as a headline to give the impression that I was condemning members of the LGBT community living in their own truth. In the interview, I express I was raised as a child to have a certain set of beliefs, but my beliefs have evolved significantly as my own personal relationship with Christ has increased.
I believe that love is the grace of all things and I have no desire to judge anybody by who they are. I'm a person of compassion and anyone who knows me knows that I love, I accept, I embrace everybody who has love in their hearts. So I love you."
