Kim Burrell's 'Ellen' Appearance Officially Cancelled After Her Homophobic Rant Goes Viral

Kim Burrell is facing the music after a video of her anti-gay sermon went viral last week.

The 44-year-old gospel singer's appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' eponymous talk show has officially been cancelled in the wake of reports of her homophobic remarks, Gossip Cop reported.

The proudly gay comedian confirmed the announcement on Twitter Tuesday.

Burrell was scheduled to appear alongside singers Pharrell and Janelle Monae, and sing "I See A Victory" — a song on the Hidden Figures soundtrack — with the latter. Pharrell is now slated to sing the duet by himself.

A video that lit Twitter up this past weekend showed Burrell calling gay people "perverted" during a 2010 sermon at Love & Liberty Fellowship Church, the Houston house of worship she founded in 2010.

"I came to tell you about sin,” Burrell says during the sermon, "That sin nature, that perverted homosexual spirit is the spirit of delusion and confusion, it has deceived many men and women and it has cast a stain on the body of Christ. You as a man, you open your mouth and take a man’s penis in your face, you are perverted. You are a woman and will shake your face in another woman’s breast, you are perverted. It has come to our church and it has embarrassed the Kingdom of God."

On Saturday, Pharrell condemned Burrell's remarks on Instagram (without mentioning her by name).

Monae, who stars in the film, also called out Burrell's intolerance in an interview with a TMZ cameraman early Tuesday.

"I don't stand for hate speech or anything that targets our fellow brothers and sisters in a negative way," Monae said.

No word yet on whether Hidden Figures producers will go as far as taking Burrell's vocals off the soundtrack — guess we'll have to tune in to Ellen on Thursday.
