One of the downfalls of social media is that any and every person can give their unsolicited two-cents on issues.
Yes, it’s good for the culture. But it’s also kind of annoying for celebrities. Case in point: Kirk Franklin, who took time to clap back at a crazy commenter who threatened his daughter.
In the midst of the #MuslimBan Twitter dialogue this weekend, the “Stomp” singer said, “I am a Christian who would rather sit at the table with a Muslim brother than ban him from a home that wasn’t originally mine…”
Fair statement, considering the fact that banning entire groups solely based on their religious beliefs is unconstitutional.
In response to Franklin’s words, a person with the handle @HistoryCaper, who describes himself as a “13th generation American” made a low blow. .@kirkfranklin I trust u’ll be leaving ur doors unlocked tonight. Oh & ur brothers want to know if u have a daughter, he wrote.

Franklin responded, “@HistoryCarper yes I have a daughter and the ability to protect her. Please come so I can have a reason to introduce you to it in Jesus name.”
And there you have it. President Trump has created an environment so volatile, gospel singers are clapping back at trolls.
