American Idol's La'Porsha Renae Says She Chose to Be Straight

La’Porsha Renae, who came in second place on the final season of American Idol, is under fire for comments she wrote on Twitter about how she “chose to be heterosexual after being homosexual for 2 years.”

The 23-year-old singer sent out a bunch of tweets after someone accused her of being homophobic.

“Phobia is a fear. I’m not afraid of homosexuals, nor do I hate them. I respect and love EVERYONE,” La’Porsha wrote. “Go educate yourself on my statement and come correct or don’t come at all.”

One Twitter user then wrote to her and said, “you do believe they’re choosing it and that’s wrong I watched my brother grow up gay he was born that way.”

“You’re wrong to think it’s not a choice for some….because it was for me. #Truth,” La’Porsha responded. “And the bigger picture of my statement was that homosexuals should be loved and respected, not dehumanized…not whether/not it was a choice.”

    Either she was never really gay or she is gay and is choosing not to be true to herself. Just being in a same sex relationship does not actually make you gay. Not that simple. There are plenty of gay people who are married to people of the opposite sex but that does not make them straight.

    Yeah I think she is choosing not to be true to herself-she said “I chose a belief system that felt true to my spirit”…doesn’t seem that she is allowing herself to be who she really is. That’s sad.
