Adam Housley, the Fox News correspondent and husband of actress Tamera Mowry-Housley, is speaking out against critics who have hurt his wife with racist remarks about their marriage. This comes on the heels of Mowry-Housley’s Jan. 10 appearance on “Oprah’s Next Chapter”, where she talked about the flood of racist remarks she’s received about her interracial marriage.
Mowry-Housely is biracial, her husband is white and the actress turned talk-show host of “The Real” said she has encountered some heinous comments because of their union.
Her husband insisted that people who have said hurtful things about their union were in the wrong. “The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad … it is pathetic,” Housely said to TVNewser recently.
“Yes, I am white. Yes, she is half-Black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half-Black does not mean I am blinded,” he said to TVNewser. “The problem isn’t pigmentation … the problem is backwards, bigoted thought from people who should know better,” he said via his Twitter account.
