Tamar Braxton was called out over the weekend when she decided to take aim at gospel icon Duranice Pace’s wig.
Tina Knowles-Lawson shared a video from “The Steve Harvey Morning Show” Instagram page Sunday, March 3, which saw the oldest sister of the Atlanta-based group The Anointed Pace Sisters belting out an impassioned take on “Amazing Grace.”
“A little Gospel this morning. Give God some praise today🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️❤️” Knowles-Lawson captioned the post.
Fans largely praised the rendition but then Braxton commented, “Yeah but the wig is stressing me out 🤦🏽♀️”
Braxton has since deleted her comment, but responses from Knowles-Lawson’s followers over her remark remain, including a reply from Pace’s younger sister, fellow gospel artist and Anointed Pace Sisters member LaShun Pace.
“I love my oldest sister! With everything she has gone through in life she is yet singing through it all. 🥰💗Touch not mine anointed…@tamarbraxton.”
“Now I love @tamarbraxton, but her talking about somebody’s else’s wig stressing her out… like she don’t got enough wig stress of her own😩”
“@tamarbraxton I still love you… wig, stressful wig or no wig😆❤️🤗”
“@tiffhoneymarie pot meet kettle 😂😂”
“@tamarbraxton that’s a little rude. All authentic grandmas wigs look like this. Everyone can’t afford a good wig, her hair doesn’t take away the presence of the lord. Smh.”
“Really Tamara, The wig!! is that all you can think about why does it always have to be that way listen to the voice listen to the words you come from a Christian background and all you can think about is her wig. What should be stressing you is the state of your country.”
It’s true that Braxton has been shamed for her own wigs, too.
As recently as November, Braxton uploaded a video to her Instagram account where fans praised her beauty but bashed the lace front that adorned her scalp.
“Hair looks a mess.”
“I love you Tamar but I don’t like that wig. Your short haircut makes you look so beautiful naturally. I love it! 😍🤩.”
“That wig looks really bad u look amazing without it.”
While Braxton has gone between wearing wigs and ditching hair altogether in her appearances onstage and on TV, Duranice Pace has been traveling the country three times each month to sing at weddings, stage production and churches, among other places. She is 60 years old and is a legend of gospel music. Duranice Pace has also survived several trials in her life, including sexual abuse and thyroid cancer. Pace currently hopes to make it on Broadway.
