i’ve had the pleasure of meeting kirk franklin at my last job and i’m gonna font it:
He was one of the most pleasant and down-to-earth celebrities I ever met!
he took pictures with everyone,
spoke to us as he knew us for years,
and was a massive light within that office.
one of my ex-co-workers,
who was a huge stan,
wasn’t in the office and he recorded a personal and funny message just for her.
i was sold after that.
You know I don’t “do” rude people or celebs.
he made me feel so comfortable to talk to him and we spoke for such a long time.
i told him how much his “hello fear” album brought me through some tough times.
for the first time i think in his long-standing career,
he is in a scandal that everyone is talking about.
outed a phone conversation that had kirk taking off his full “christian”…
was that agatha hartness cackling in the background?
everyone is up in arms because he is so heavy in christianity,
but have people actually grown up within a christian household?
or have they forgotten because he is a celebrity?
Christian parents are still people and will go HAM on their kids
first of all,
what is the context of his son outing him?
his son tried to make him look bad and we don’t know why.
during the “what was supposed to be private” conversation,
he taunted kirk by saying:
“I dare you.”
he ordered and kirk delivered.
did his son leave a tip after?
it all ended up with kirk having to apologize on his ig:

i don’t know why kirk is apologizing.
we don’t need that apology because he didn’t do anything wrong in my eyes.
just because he is a christian,
that doesn’t mean he isn’t human.
growing up amongst jehovah’s witnesses and entering the pentecostal sector,
i’ve seen many christians have to break their verbal foot off in their kid’s asses.
whenever star fox or his brothers did wrong,
his father who was a higher-up within the church,
never failed to start off a sentence with:
this is one of my many gripes with “christian” people.
it’s always this sense of trying to be perfect which never works out.
i still fucks with kirk heavy.
check out kirk and his amazing performance on “tiny desk“:
lowkey: i think the son owes kirk and us an apology tbh.
