Gospel singer Vicki Yohe is the Latest Victim to Social Media Backlash...find out why

Oh snap! 

Its not safe either being a Trump supporter or anti-Trump as comments or actions taken from either stands will irrespective spark rage from die hard social media fans from both sides.

Just as Chelsea Handler was called out for speaking ill of the First Lady Melania Trump,  the recent victim to be face lots of backlash is gospel singer Vicki Yohe who had earlier on posted a meme in support of Mr Trump’s presidency.
The meme has been described as taunting black people who are believed to be her largest group of fans and anti-Trump supporters.
Vicki has taken to Facebook to release a lengthy statement after what she described as verbal abuse from thousands of people.

Read her statement below...

“I never want to ever hurt anyone and that has never been my intention. If I have hurt you I am truly sorry. It is true that I am excited by the thought of a government that will protect Christianity and not attack it. I do not condone any wrong things Trump has said or done in the past. I also did not mean to imply that Obama was not a Christian, but meant that the policies his administration pursued many times went against what most Christians believe.
I posted this pic quickly after someone sent it to me. In retrospect I know that in haste I did it without considering how some may view it and the meanings they would derive from it. I regret that, and apologize for it.

Various people with large followings have attacked me on their social media platforms. In the last 24 plus hours, I have been branded a racist, and endured continual attacks from thousands of people. We had to shut down all social media because of the scores of vulgar messages and threats. We are still getting emails and phone calls, calling me nasty things and above all RACIST! Their goal now is to ruin me. We have churches calling to cancel their ministry dates, and thousands of people saying they will never buy the music again.
I know who I am and who I am not, and I am not a racist. People who know my personal life would find that label the most ridiculous adjective you could assign to me.Bottom line I WAS WRONG, but my intentions were not what they have been perceived to be.”

Here is the meme she shared...
