Ciara is feeling the wrath of social media this weekend.
Earlier today, the happily married wife of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson tweeted out a video that contains a video clip from a sermon done by pastor John W. Gray III. Supposedly revealing the secret of a successful union, the words that were said in the footage she shared were not taken lightly by her fans.
Gray preaches some controversial messages in the video, detailing that the scripture says that, “‘He that finds a wife finds a good thing.’ It didn’t say, ‘He that finds a girl that he’s attracted to, who he then begins to date, who he then calls his girlfriend, who he then buys a ring, proposes to and makes her his fiancée, who he then marries later who becomes his wife." It gets worse when he elaborates: "You’re not a wife when I marry you, you’re a wife when I find you.” Well then...
Needless to say, the Twitterverse did not react kindly to that kind of one-sided message, as witnessed by this sampling of the replies to Ciara's tweet:
Besides the implied shaming of women who do not fall into this typical stereotype of a submissive marriage, there's also the fact that Ciara called off her engagement to previous partner Future amid rumors of infidelity. Looks like she's got a lot to answer for with this tweet.
Do you agree with the message of the video that she tweeted? Let us know in the comments.
