Erica Campbell is opening up about the criticism that she has received from the Christian community.In a recent interview, the Gospel sister revealed that she received backlash for wearing a white bodycon dress and was accused of “looking too sexy to sing for the Lord and taking the attention away from his teachings.” “I’ve had people call me hoes and harlots… all kinds of stuff. I’ve had people say I’m in the illuminati… but that comes with the territory. If you’re not ready for that, it can make you retreat and be like ‘I can’t do this,’” Campbell said. She continued, “Had any R&B singer had that, they would’ve been like ‘oh my God she’s covered up… Christianity has a problem with sexuality.” The dress the Campbell was wearing was a white turtle neck knee-length dress.

I think that young girls shouldn’t only get sexy images from people who are not proclaiming Jesus. But I am. And I’m cute too.” Erica Campbell has always been a spokesperson for body positivity. She has recently tweeted out an uplifting message to women. “Hey! You don’t need the surgery! You’re fine how you are, embrace yourself LOVE YOURSELF as you are. Surgery isn’t bad but WHY DO YOU REALLY NEED IT?! YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL! Stop comparing yourself to others!! You are fearfully and wonderfully made Psalms 139.” What are your thoughts on this?
