The singer, who made the comments in March on her YouTube show “Stoopid Sessions”, has now retracted her words, but members of the community are not letting it slide just yet. On the show, Simi said homosexuality is unnatural and went further to shame LGBTQ+ folks. However, her comments met with a lot of backlash after it went viral. The singer now seems to have realized that she was absolutely wrong and has tendered an apology, taking back her homophobic comments, but many still doubt her sincerity, especially as it came a few hours before her husband’s photo appeared on the cover of a queer-focused magazine.
