Whitney's Daughter Apologizes For Transphobic Tweet
Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of the late Whitney Houston, is apologizing for a series of tweets fired at Angela Bassett, one of which included a transphobic comment about the Golden Globe Award-winning actress. SF Blog reports.
Basset is due to make her directorial debut for a Lifetime biopic on Whitney Houston.
As if to say, "what's blood got to do with it," Bassett dismissed the idea of casting Houston's aspiring actress daughter as the the deceased diva.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Bassett, who co-starred with Houston in the 1995 drama "Waiting to Exhale." said "I did not think about casting her [Brown]. And probably for a number of reasons, you know. One being that she's not an actress," she continued. "I know she's acted here and there. I know she's been on their family's reality show, but she's not an actress and acting is a craft."
Hell hath no fury like a dead diva's daughter dissed, which drove Brown to Twitter to unleash a torrent of angry tweets aimed at the Bassett.
"Ha MsAng 'bassketcase' has such a damn nerve my lord,"
