Jazmine Sullivan may not fear lions, tigers, or bears, but after her latest stunt, there may be some other beasts she may want to be afraid of: her fans. Following the death of gospel singer Thomas “TC” Clay, the Grammy-nominated singer took to Facebook to post a (recently deleted) questionable eulogy, recalling unrequited love between her and the late singer, along with an attached selfie. The songstress may have thought the gesture was sweet, but fans didn’t quite agree and slammed her for it on Twitter.
“I didn’t know TC very. What I do know is I gave him my number accidentally thru a friend and he reached out consistently for a year,” Sullivan wrote in her “eulogy” on Oct. 18. “I think I replied maybe 3 times but that never stopped him from writing me. He was DETERMINED lol… Just know I was your fan TC (Cuz I know u still gotta crush on me in heaven and u listening) rest in paradise!”
In a series of vicious tweets ignited on Oct. 19, fans dragged Sullivan for her poor choice of words and bad timing. “Jazmine Sullivan curved that man while he was fresh in the casket. The funny thing is the way she wrote it I think she didn’t mean harm,” one fan wrote. “Jazmine Sullivan out here friend-zoning men who are deceased? That’s a whole new kinda curve my g. Lmaooooo,” another chimed in.
Other fans paraphrased Sullivan’s post in 160 characters. “Jazmine Sullivan basically said ‘you dead but I know you still thirsty for me lol rest in power,” one person wrote.
