Mowry fought back against the claims on her talk show “The Real” Tuesday, Sept. 18.
“There are some people who think that my husband is racist because he worked for a certain channel,” said Mowry on the program. “I’m gonna look in that camera right there and let everybody know my husband is not a racist!”
“This is just for clarification so if you see any stupid people spewing lies…per usual…have them refer to this tweet. @TameraMowryTwo and I did not support Trump or Hillary and nowhere has there ever been anything said to prove such,” the winery owner tweeted after Mowry’s on-air remarks.
“In California it didn’t matter, so no need to choose. Also…at Fox I worked in something called THE NEWS DIVISION. I covered fires…about 50…hurricanes..11…tsunamis 2…War Zones 3…Earthquakes 5….terror attacks& shootings..1 is too many,” he added before continuing. “No I am not racist, or insensitive, or any other crap you spew. Yes I love people from all walks of life. I love to cook, be with my kids, coach soccer, tell stories, music of all types, people of all types.”
Housley, who said he and his wife are faced with these claims once every year, added that he responded to the accusations “just to get it over with and on record.” He also said that both his son and daughter are being taught to be a “strong woman” and a “strong man” who come “from amazing families with diverse backgrounds.”
“Whats wrong right now in this country is we focus on the image and not the substance. We focus on the fake and not the real,” Housley tweeted. “Nobody seems to care about fact and rumors abound. We have become too comfortable.”
The posts didn’t quell his accusers, however.
“A non racist person doesn’t have to say ‘I am not racist,’ You’re trying too hard to explain why you’re not racist. That makes your statement look suspect.”
“You’re a another right wing bigot. Ive seen the receipts.”
But Housley appeared over it.
“OMG….shut up and unfollow then, What a ridiculous statement. It was because some lame individual made a lying video that is filled with complete lies. If I hadn’t responded you would said silence speaks everything. GEEZE.”
