The other day we told you about rapper T.I.’s barbaric birthday ritual with his daughter. How every year he takes her to the gynecologist to have her hymen tested to see if she’s still a virgin.
First of all, this is NOT an accurate test. Lots of things can cause a hymen to stretch. Enter the good people doing at PP to clap that shit out for you:
Some people think you can tell if someone’s had sex before if their hymen is stretched open. But that’s not the case.

Now it seems that while daughter Deyjah Harris hasn’t officially spoke out about the comments, she has made her feelings known in less obvious ways. By ‘liking’ a couple tweets that support her and not her dad.
Many have been showing Deyjah support on social media. One fan wrote, “I support you, not your father. I’m hoping you’re okay – sending love from Austin. ?? You are a strong woman with a lot of ppl supporting you!”
Another commented, “our dad needs a spanking! I don’t care how much money he has,he has a way of trying to control any woman!! Run far away!!”
T.I. has yet to respond to the backlash he’s receiving. Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham, the hosts of “Ladies Like Us”, issued an apology earlier today.
The statement read, “To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of “Ladies Like Us”, we want to start off by saying that we sincerely apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic. We were completely caught off guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment.”
They continued, “The comments that were made 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.”
