Tamera Mowry-Housley Attacked on Twitter

Social media platforms are becoming a hotseat for entertainers with ANYTHING  to say about the 2012 Presidential Campaign. Most recently, actress Tamera Mowry-Housley got “twacked”—attacked on Twitter–for retweeting a message that had nothing to do with her political stance.

On Thursday, while watching the debate between Vice President Joe Biden and Representative Paul Ryan, Housley of “Sister, Sister” and “Tia & Tamera” fame, retweeted a comment by Fox News Channel anchor Greta Van Susteren regarding the contentiousness of the  debate. Van Susteren’s tweet read, “I think I might turn this off if it were not my job to watch it…the interruptions make it impossible to learn anything.” Mowry-Housley  added to the comment, “That’s all I’ma say about the debate. 😉 God bless us, everyone.”

Seconds later, it was on. The battle went something like this:

Tweeter: “sister sister are republicans? lmfao”

Tweeter: “…you surprised? Tamera is married to a white fox news reporter. lmao. -tries to act surprised-”

Tweeter: -___- he not even hott enough to be crossing over to the dark side for doe.”

Tweeter: “Soooo Tamera is married to a white man… You light skinned hoes boy… He’s a funny lookin white boy too..”

Housley: “All I said was I hate ppl interrupting people. And I got a ton of tweets assuming who I was voting 4 and racist remarks becuz of my husband— Tamera Mowry-Housley (@TameraMowryTwo)”

More reasonable Tweeter: “I can’t believe people are harassing @TameraMowryTwo because she made a harmless comment and is married to a white man.”

Enter Mowry-Housley’s valiant husband, Fox News Channel correspondent Adam Housley: Seriously?! You attack my wife @TameraMowryTwo because she said people were talking over each other. Then assume who she’s voting for,” followed by, “Then make racist/rude comments 2 @tameramowrytwo because she married a white man who works for Fox?! You should be ashamed of yourselves.”

Clearly, Mrs. Housley isn’t espousing any specific political views, but apparently a lot gets lost or made up in “textation”–the act of translating an electronic message to fit one’s subjective interpretation.

    It's a big struggle to be Black in America and also to be of darker complexion.

  2. Carol-Anne Scott says:

    She should keep out of making Political comments

  3. That's just it. She didn't make a political comment. She stated that she hated the way they BOTH continued to interrupt one another. Anyone who watched the debate would know they were both interrupting one another. This bullying and attacking other people of color if they appear not to be voting for Obama is worse than the policies they claim to be against. And this is a sad display of our community's fractured spirit, and inability to house and communicate a critical thought beyond how dark or light a person is or how "good" their hair is.

  4. Maybe I missed the part in Tamera's tweet where she made a political view…

  5. Tamera you need to just Barack the vote

  6. Cal Tecke says:

    i love tamera and tia

  7. I think Adam and Tamera are perfect for each other. Color does not matter. If you truly love someone, that's what matters. My sister in law is aferican-american and I feel my family is truly blessed to have her as a part of our family. She is a wonderful woman and has changed my brothers life for the best. God bless you both.
