The hosts of ‘Ladies Like Us’ podcast, Nadia Moham and Nazanin Mandi have dropped an apology after facing huge backlash on how they reacted while rapper T.I. was shamelessly describing how he visits the gynaecologist annually with his daughter to check whether she is still a virgin, even at age 18!
Nazanin Mandi, who is the wife to singer Miguel, on Thursday, took to her Instagram to say they are sorry and were caught off guard, as T.I.’s comments have so widely been seen as offensive and misogynistic. They also took down that episode of their podcast, TMZ had reported.
Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham in their apology note, said T.I. should have been immediately called out when he opened up about annually taking his daughter to a gynaecology appointment to ensure she’s a virgin. They said:
“To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of Ladies Like Us, we want to apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic,” the ladies wrote. “We were completely caught off guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment.
The comments that were mad and the reaction that followed are not in any way a reflection of our personal views on the topic. We support and love Women and feel that their bodies are theirs to do as they wish.
“There was absolutely no ill intent towards any party involved & feel deeply awful about the entire incident. We are not perfect, take full accountability of our lack of action & are continuously learning along the way. We know an apology doesn’t make this go away but we welcome the discussion- that’s what our podcast is about,” the statement said.
Speaking to Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham on their podcast Ladies Like Us, TI was asked if he has had the “sex talk” with his daughter yet, to which he said:
“Have I? This is the thing: Deyjah’s 18, just graduated high school now and she’s attending her first year of college, figuring it out for herself,” he said. “And yes, not only have we had the conversation, we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.”
He said he even goes into the appointment with her to hear the results for himself, insisting his daughter sign a release to allow it. “I will say as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact,” he proudly declared.
T.I.’s daughter is now 18-years-old and is off at college. The hosts noted that Deyjah is very beautiful and she has over a million followers on Instagram so Tip has his work cut out for him now that she’s not living in the same house.
The gynecologist made it clear to T.I. that there are other ways for a woman to break their hymen like riding a bike and sports. T.I. said he responded by declaring, “she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bikes, she don’t play no sports. Just check the hymen please and give me back my results.” “I will say, as of her 18th birthday her hymen is still intact,” T.I. proudly said.
This was T.I birthday message to his daughter, and if there are any answers you are looking for from all those questions, I am guessing this here should answer some of them. Also, have anyone noticed his Instagram handle? ‘troubledman’ See the birthday message:
