Team Blake’s Cali Wilson Attacked with Anti-Gay Slur — She Responds
The Voice’s Cali Wilson Get’s Attacked For Being Gay
On Nov. 23, the singer took to Twitter to say that she’s looking for a manager to handle “all the business stuff,” but Cali can’t seem to catch a break as someone who claims to be a fan also posted on the bird app and questioned her decision to share details about her sexuality on the NBC show.
“Why did u have to advertise on national TV that u are a lesbian?” the fan demanded. “That’s what knocked you out of the finals.”
Cali replied to the fan, saying that she was simply being truthful and genuine about who she is and that she has nothing to be ashamed of.
“I will not hide who I love to get votes,” said the Iowa native. “My sexuality doesn’t define me and if that’s the reason people didn’t vote for me, so be it.”
Cali Wilson Gets Support From Social Media
The criticism came after Cali dedicated her “The Voice” performance of Kacey Musgrave’s “Butterflies” to her girlfriend. She performed this on the show for the Top 13 elimination, and while most people loved her rendition, she was eliminated from the competition, along with Team Kelly member Max Boyle.
After Cali posted her reply, other Twitter users went on the app to show their support, with one saying that all humans have the right to love, while another said that people are getting increasingly rude nowadays. The singer echoed the sentiment, saying that it was “sad to see tweets like this in 2019.”
Cali also reiterated that she has no regrets about her elimination from the show, nor does she regret being out and proud. She tweeted a rainbow emoji and wrote, “Full of pride. Thank you all.”
All of the songs that Cali performed on The Voice, such as “Butterflies,” “Tainted Love,” and “Love and War” are on Apple Music now. We’re excited to see where her journey takes her as she continues to stay true to herself while following her dreams!
