Over the last week following the posting of her sermon in which she called out homosexuality as a sin, Burrell has faced overwhelming rebuke from entertainers like Pharrell Williams, Janelle Monae, Chaka Khan and Ellen Degeneres, who cancelled Burrells's scheduled appearance on her daytime talk show. Even gospel superstar, Yolanda Adams took time to respond to comments Burrell made about Bishop Eddie Long and alleged homosexual associations.
In addition to being cancelled from a performance with Williams on the "Ellen Degeneres Show," Burrell's radio show "Bridging the Gap" which premiered June 2016 on the Texas Southern University radio station, KTSU was also dropped.
Although Burrell's appearance on Degeneres' show was cancelled, Williams did appear and said that Burrell is "a fantastic singer. I love her, just like I love everybody else, and we all got to get used to that – we all have to get used to everyone's differences and understand that this is a big, gigantic, beautiful, colorful world, and it only works with inclusion and empathy."
