Social media star and reality show celebrity Deyjah Harris is feeling the heat from being in the spotlight. Recently, T.I. Harris’ oldest daughter has been in the middle of an embarrassing situation as her father disclosed an intimate secret on the Ladies Like Us podcast. The revelation that he takes his daughter on an annual visit to a gynecologist and requests a report on the findings of the examination has been the subject of outrage. Some people feel that the 18-year-old’s virginity should remain a private matter and that her dad crossed the line by asking a medical professional for the details of the examination even though the patient has given consent. Others believe that T.I. is holding his daughter to higher standards than he would his sons. Lastly, and most importantly, some critics believe that discussing his daughter’s medical history with the media is not only an invasion of privacy but has placed her in an uncomfortable situation.
The podcast hosts have since issued an apology on social media: “To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of Ladies Like Us, we want to start off by saying that we sincerely apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic. We were completely caught off guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment. The comments that were made and the reaction that followed are not in any way a reflection of our personal views on the topic. We support and love women and feel that their bodies are theirs to do as they wish. There was absolutely no ill intent towards any of the parties involved & feel deeply awful about the entire incident. We are not perfect, take full responsibility of our lack of action & are continuously learning along the way. We know an apology doesn’t make this go away but we welcome the discussion—that’s what our podcast is about.”
Sincerely, Nazanin & Nadia
