Singer Kirk Franklin's estranged son, Kerrion, recently posted a video recording on Instagram, where the 'Hello Fear' singer can be heard hurling the N-word. As per Kerrion, he's been separated from his family for years and has very little communication with his father.

The description for the recording read, "This is why I'm done. No father should speak to their children like this. If I have any issues it's because Of this type of treatment that ii deal with behind closed doors. Hanging up in my face, No apology, no compassion, no effort. Stop telling me to go home to my family I don't even know where they live. I don't think I'll ever trust my father to be alone around him ever again. I didn't want to do this. I probably won't release the entire recording because It's too embarrassing that Im even dealing with this. No matter what ppl think I pray my dad deals with his deep hatred toward me. I don't feel sate around him at all. This recording is recent it is not from 2018 just to clarify. Im going to learn from these experiences, live my life in pease and make beautiful art jj." During the conversation, Kirk can be heard saying, “I will break yo neck (N-word)."

As soon as the conversation was posted on the Internet and people got to know that Kirk hurled the N-word at his own son, reactions started pouring in. One social media user said, "Kirk Franklin called his own son the n-word. Period. No amount of good gospel music can make me unhear that." While another one said: "I shouldn’t be this surprise from Kirk Franklin cussing but I am".



Talking about the choir director, another one said, "I've heard pastors "cuss" out people so bad I thought I was going to hell for being there, so Kirk Franklin is good. The church is just a non-profit, and the pastor is the CEO. Your salvation depends on neither." Another one tweeted: "I just saw a video of Kirk Franklin cursing his son out over the phone, & unfortunately, I saw many professing Christians defending him. None of us are without sin & we all fall short, but the language he was using was just foul. That type of behavior is inexcusable."



One person wrote: "I would really like to know the events that lead to this, because it sounds like Kirk Franklin was on his last straw." Another one defended Kirk, saying, "I cannot cancel Kirk Franklin for using expletives or yelling at his child. Sometimes when I get angry I use expletives and I yell at the people I love when they piss me off. Stop expecting perfection from people who never claimed that they were."



While talking about Kirk's behavior, another one said: "There's a certain amount of trauma and abuse I've noticed black children experience and expect. It's sad and suprising, especially reading through these Kirk Franklin comments. My parents never cursed me out, or threatened me. This behavior is not okay. It's emotional abuse." And another one wrote: "the people applauding kirk franklin for that shit is sad. ya mama spoke to you like that? doesn't mean it's right. these are the same people who beat tf out of their kids cause their parents did it to them. sad. the abused becomes the abuser."
