Celebs Are Ripping Apart T.I. for Those Messed Up Comments He Made About His Daughter's Hymen
Remember yesterday? Literally me either. And in case you’ve already blocked it out, T.I. felt the need to tell the world about the truly messed up thing he does to make sure his 18-year-old daughter’s “hymen is still intact” (which he falsely equates with being a virgin—there are plenty of ways for a hymen to break that doesn’t involve sex!).
While making an appearance on the “Life Hacks” episode of the Ladies Like Us podcast, T.I. said his plan to make sure his 18-year-old daughter remains a virgin (?!?!?! WTF!!!!!) includes “yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.” If you truly can’t even wrap your mind around how inappropriate and messed up this is, the internet is right there with you.
T.I.’s comments have garnered responses from celebs like Chrissy Teigen, Padma Lakshmi, and Iggy Azalea. Chrissy tweeted, “Def did not think we would be talking about hymens today. or TI,” while Iggy wrote in a since-deleted tweet “Really I wish the women who interviewed him would have said something to him. He has serious control issues with women in all aspects of his life & needs therapy.”

Meanwhile, Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi wrote “The double standard of the patriarchy is truly insane. Young women are fully capable of making their own informed decisions about their bodies and their sexuality.”

And The Handmaid’s Tale star Madeline Brewer wrote “This makes me feel physically ill. It’s abhorrent. This isn’t behavior to laugh at or joke about. The level of toxicity and malice and control he’s exerting on his own daughter’s life and bodily autonomy and privacy. I’m sick.”

During the podcast appearance, T.I. also revealed that he makes his daughter tell the doctor to share medical information with him. Prepare to be furious:
Wow, this is awful. Hopefully T.I. will listen to some of this feedback because his daughter has the right to make her own decisions about her body.
