Gospel star Kirk Franklin apologizes after threatening to put foot in son’s a**

7

Gospel singer Kirk Franklin apologized Saturday for berating his adult son with profanities and insults — after his offspring recorded and posted the call on Instagram.

The 51-year-old performer’s 32-year-old son, Kerrion, recorded his dad’s tirade, in which the 16-time Grammy winner mocked his kin for being poor and threatened to put his foot in his son’s “skinny motherf—ing a–.”

“Recently my son and I had an argument that he chose to record,” the elder Franklin said in a video apology posted on Twitter on Saturday.

“I felt extremely disrespected in that conversation and I lost my temper and I said words that are not appropriate and I am sincerely sorry to all of you. I sincerely apologize.”

Franklin claimed that his son has “for many years… had a toxic relationship” with the rest of the family, and that he had brought a family therapist onto the call to help.

“We’ve tried for many years through counseling, through therapy to try to rectify this private family matter,” Franklin said. “He never played that part on the recording.”

“I’m not perfect. I’m human and I’m going to make mistakes and I’m trying to get it right. Please keep me and my family in your prayers.”

Kerrion Franklin declined his father’s apology in a series of Instagram posts.

“He apologized to his fans only and not me. This is why I’m Done,” he posted.

Kerrion also asked his followers to let the family handle its own business.

“Plz do not crucify my father. I am not here to bash him across the board. I didn’t even cuss in the recording,” he posted.

“I just said what he said back to me. my father has been speaking very mean & manipulatively to me for 15 years now. My voice will be heard. I forgive him for the past pain.”

The younger Franklin in 2018 accused his Kanye West-collaborating father of neglect in a since-deleted Instagram post, Ebony Magazine reported.

  1. Celebrities always say things then when caught issue apologies to save their brand. . In my field of work I’ve been up close and personal with so many celebrities .and could care less about these people .

  2. “I felt extremely disrespected in that conversation and I lost my temper and I said words that are not appropriate and I am sincerely sorry to all of you. I sincerely apologize.”

    So did he only apologize because he was caught?

  3. Wait, let the parent who has never lost it when being disrespected by their teenager or young adults cast the first stone. He could have done better, but he did what anyone would have done. We may not have said “ foot in ass” but we have some local favorites that we may have used. Not saying that it’s right, but it happens. In the ideal world, we are all perfect.

  4. It makes me confused or baffled when persons who profess ” Christianity ” speak profane languages especially when they are not new converts…. I will accept that they are humans but I am of the view these persons who bear the Christian label are not true followers of Christ but use the title as a front. Saying that they are only human whenever they do something contrary to the Christian principles is a very poor excuse they always use…… It is only clear that these behaviors expose who they really are…..As a cliche states ” play dead and you will see what funeral u will get”
