Kirk Franklin Boycotts TBN, Dove Awards After His Award Acceptance Speech Was Censored One of contemporary gospel's brightest and most enduring stars, a soulful singer with a revivalist spirit and just a twist of hip-hop.
Kirk Franklin is boycotting TBN and the Dove Awards. Franklin received awards from them for the past two years but says his acceptance speech was edited. In a video released on Instagram, Franklin explained he brought attention to the senseless killing of Atatiana Jefferson by a Fort Worth police officer. He said, "I asked everyone in the audience and those viewing to join me in prayer for not only Atatiana's family, including her 8-year-old nephew who witnessed the killing, but also for the family of the police officer. Last week, during the airing of the awards on the same network, again, that part of my speech was edited out."
Y’all need to understand that most of these so called white Christian organizations are part of the problem. Stop trusting them...
