Tamera Mowry-Housley opened up to Oprah Winfrey about the years of online hate that has been directed at her over her marriage to Fox News correspondent Adam Housely, who is White.
During a taping of “Where Are They Now,” a series airing Winfrey’s OWN channel, Mowry-Housley sat next to her sister, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, as she outlined the hateful messages she has received, mostly on Twitter. “Because when my husband and I are so openly– and we’re fine with showing– is love,” she said. “Love. But people choose to look past love and spew hate. That’s what hurts me because I’ve never experienced so much hate ever in my life. Ever.”
Mowry-Housley shared one of the most hurtful comments someone directed at her: “I get called ‘White man’s whore,’ she said. “The new one was, back in the day, you cost $300, but now you’re giving it to him for free.”’
