TIshould have been immediately called out when he opened up about annually taking his daughter to a gynecology appointment to ensure she’s a virgin .. .so say the podcast hosts, who are now apologizing.
Nazanin MandiandNadia Mohamhave gotten a lot of backlash after their interview with the rapper on their “Ladies Like Us “podcast, and they now admit they had a” knee jerk reaction “when they simply burst out in laughter.
It does seem like awkward laughter … but, still, they feel they reacted TERRIBLY to TI saying he sits in on his daughterDeyjah Harris‘gyno visits to confirm her hymen is intact.
Ladies Like Us with Nazanin and Nadia
They’re directly addressing the criticism they didn’t stand up to TI for his remarks … which an overwhelming majority of listeners felt was aninvasion of his daughter’s privacy.
Nazanin and Nadia say they “were completely caught off guard / shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment.” The hosts went on to say, “We are not perfect, take full accountability for our lack of action.”
TI’s comments have so widely been seen as offensive and misogynistic that Nadia and Nazanin made the decision to take down that episode of their podcast.
