Interesting, depending on how you interpret this. For the record, this is an excerpt from a longer sermon where Gray also takes men to task, something that social media apparently didn’t consider.

Some folks on Black Twitter took issue with the post, claiming that Ciara forgot her past before she married Russell Wilson. And they believe she is shaming and blaming Black women for being single.
