Sherri Shepherd of ‘The View’ had to eat her word this week when she ended up apologizing for a statement she made about homosexuals last week.  During an interview with Alicia Menendez of Fusion, Sherri allegedly made anti-gay remarks.  However, Sherri stated that the media misconstrued her original comments.  Sherri apologized with,

‘Working on a talk show that’s centered in the opinion business, there have been several things that I’ve shared in the press that have upset people, and typically I don’t respond to the criticism.  However, I’d like to say I’m truly sorry to anyone I’ve offended with the viewpoints I expressed on ‘Alicia Menendez Tonight’ on the Fusion network.  My interview was misrepresented, and only a portion of my comments were used as a headline to give the impression that I was condemning members of the LGBT community living in their own truth.  In the interview, I express I was raised as a child to have a certain set of beliefs, but my beliefs have evolved significantly as my own personal relationship with Christ has increased.  You grow up being a Christian and you grow up believing homosexuality is a sin; you’re going to hell if you’re a homosexual.  This is something that they teach in churches.

  So it’s something that I grew up believing.  I might not agree with your lifestyle, but I love you.  You may not agree with my lifestyle, but you love me.’

There have been many celebrities who voiced their opinion on controversial and sensitive issues like the subject of homosexuality.  Although the First Amendment affords Americans the freedom of expression, there is a price to pay when statements are made that are offensive to groups of individuals.  Wonder if Sherri Sheppard will pay a price for her comment about the LBGT community?
