Kirk Franklin broke his silence today on social media about the blatant disrespect that he has encountered at the Dove Awards.
After the airing of the Gospel Music Association’s Dove Awards, it was reported that TBN edited Kirk Franklin’s acceptance speech. In 2016, after winning Gospel artist of the year, Kirk Franklin used his platform to bring light to the unjust treatment of law enforcement and the African American Community. Once the show was aired, his comments were edited from the televised show. The GMA made a public apology about that incident.
In 2019, Kirk Franklin won the same award and again used his platform to shed light on social injustice and his speech was edited out again.
After meeting with the Gospel Music Association and TBN, Kirk Franklin has made a bold move to boycott those organizations until more measures of diversity are in place.
