“Awkward Black Girl” creator Issa Rae under criticism for new christian parody song
“Awkward Black Girl” creator Issa Rae is under fire for her new christian parody song.
The song is part of Rae’s new series, “The Choir,” which is described as a “dramedy that follows the United Church of Holy Christ in Fellowship’s choir as they attempt to rebuild their dying congregation.”
“Christ WALK,” featured in the series’ latest episode, drew immediate criticism from viewers.
The song is obviously a parody, but a few people didn’t think it was funny. Words like sacrilegious and blasphemous have been thrown around in response to the video:
Wrong. Just wrong. Do another!
I think it’s amazing how we can throw around the name of Jesus so flippantly. No she said nothing truly negative about Christ, but the entirety of the video doesn’t shine a light on Christ or his people. I get the hypocrisy angle. But to complete it, we should see what Christians should be like. Compare/contrast.
I love admire your work but this is straight Blasphemy. Jesus is real and when more ppl acknowledge what he did on the cross for us. This world would be better. I can’t get with this at all. SMH
Thoughts on the video?
Did Issa Rae go too far?
