Simi apologises to LGBT community over homophobic comments


Nigerian singer, Simi has apologised over the homophobic comments she made about the Lesbians, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community.

She took to her Twitter page on Monday, where she tendered an unreserved apology over the comments she made during her YouTube show ‘Stoopid Sessions.’

The apology note partly read,”I carelessly and casually addressed an issue that is a matter of life and death for many. It was not my intention to you, but I did and I am sorry.”

Simi went on to make reference of someone who almost got killed because of their association with the LGBT community and how dangerous homophobic comments can be.

Finally, she said “she may not know how the LGBT community works but she is learning to understand how it works.”

Simi’s apology is coming on the heels of the backlash that followed after she made a statement about the LGBT community in one of the episodes of her show.
