Single Twitter was pissed when Ciara posted a 2016 clip of a John Gray sermon offering women advice on how to attract a man. It should be noted, Gray didn’t just speak to single women but also to single men as well. In the clip Gray says to women “You’re not a wife when I marry you, you’re a wife when I find you.” Ciara captioned the short video with “level up.”
Many women were offended by the video and Ciara’s perceived notion that it’s solely women’s fault they’re single. Realizing her post was being taken the wrong way, Mrs. Russell Wilson clarified her original sentiments.
“I was a single mom sitting at home and then I realized that the perfect love I was looking for was how God loves me,” Ciara wrote.
Ciara continued by writing that her husband has nothing to do with what she means when she says “level up.”That’s when I realized married or not, I need to love myself.”
Unfortunately Ciara’s clarification came a little too late and Twitter didn’t want to hear anything more from her.
Ciara had ringless twitter angry this morning but the eagles turned that around

Everyone deserves respect whether you’re marriage material or girlfriend material. Let’s start demanding men to grow the fuck up and stop being emotionally unavailable children. #Ciara should know.
