A few days ago R&B singer, Ciara, shared a sermon snippet captioned “#LevelUp. Don’t Settle.” warning against women walking in a “girlfriend” spirit. Thoroughly unimpressed, disgruntled singles didn’t hesitate to call out the celebrity on social media.

The video that got Ciara in trouble is a snippet taken from a John Gray sermon preached at the 2016 I Am Woman Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. In the video Pastor Gray addresses single women praying for a husband saying, “too many women want to be married but you’re walking in the spirit of ‘girlfriend’.”

Although we’re sure Ciara meant well, the internet army didn’t extend the same grace and immediately accused her of single-shaming.

The post racked up 1000s of comments across social media prompting Ciara to respond with another post explaining her motive for sharing the video.

It wasn’t all bad though, many people soon came to Ciara’s defence with comments of support.
