Kim Burrell Explains Comments Regarding Gays as Appearance on Ellen is Cancelled

Stellar Award winning singer and pastor Kim Burrell, who recently came under fire for her comments against homosexuality, got on social media to respond to criticism. Burrell was speaking at her church Love & Liberty Fellowship Pentecostal Overcoming Holy Church where apparently someone leaked video recording of her sermon.

Following online petitions and much criticism on social media, Ellen Degeneres cancelled Burrell's appearance on her daytime talk show. Burrell was scheduled to perform with singer Pharrell the song, "I See a Victory" from the new movie "Hidden Figures".

Degeneres tweeted, "“For those asking, Kim Burrell will not be appearing on my show."
Gospel star Yolanda Adams also had backlash for Burrell about Bishop Eddie Long. On Facebook, Adams posted, "As a Person who has Gay Relatives and Friends, I had to put these Words in the Atmosphere to combat the unwarranted and unproven attack on My Friend Bishop Long. Hateful Words are never profitable to the Cause of Christ in the World. Jesus said "They will know you by your Love."
