Podcast hosts apologise and delete T.I’s interview about his daughter’s annual virginity tests after backlash
The hosts of Ladies Like Us podcast, Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham have issued an apology after deleting the interview in which rapper T.I revealed how he ensures his daughter’s virginity is intact.
T.I came on their show and revealed that he takes his daughter to gynaecologists to check her virginity.
Mandi, in reaction to backlash she received for laughing when T.I made the revelation, stated that it was just a knee-kerk reaction.
“To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of Ladies Like Us , we want to apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic,” the statement reads.
“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 party involved & feel deeply awful about the entire incident,” the statement continues.
“We are not perfect, take full accountability 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.”
