“You shall not judge.” Even after his death, Kevin Samuels remains a hot topic. Today, a resurfaced clip of Pastor Jamal Bryant’s Mother’s Day sermon hit the internet. Everyone has something to say about his comments on the late self-proclaimed relationship guru in the sermon, including Omarion. The singer entered The Shade Room to defend Kevin’s family.
As we previously reported, the senior pastor of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church took a moment to mention Kevin as he addressed the congregation. He stated,
“To men who have no authority. How can a man say that you have little value after 35 years? How can a man say you don’t have the traction level of a high powered man when that man has to get a GoFundMe for his funeral?
If you remember, several rumors began to emerge around Kevin’s death. One of them was her close family friend, Melanie King, who created her GoFundMe account. The alleged fundraiser claims the money will go to his mother and daughter. In light of the comments, Omarion chimed in and commented:
“It’s sad when people can’t respect ‘family’ after losing a loved one. It’s not here anymore. Why add insult to injury? What about the people who loved him, like his mother? He continued: “You have to see this or hear it. This is disgusting and gross. Regardless of his views, he didn’t kill anyone. We all need to have more compassion. That’s why I don’t go to these “fake” places of worship. Respectfully.”
He chimed in again, redoubling his comments, explaining,
“We have to have compassion, everyone. This life is not easy.”
Roommates, what do you think about Pastor Bryant and Omarion’s comments?
