Actress Meagan Good is a prominent Christian married to Devon Franklin, a Hollywood producer, preacher and motivational speaker. And yesterday she posted a sexy bikini picture online, that had the church folk up in arms!
Meagan re-posted a bikini pic taken of her by Essence magazine many years ago. The picture was sexy, but tasteful. Here's the image that's causing all the controversy:
Shortly after she posted the above image on Instagram, some church folks went in her comments - to criticize Meagan for circulating that image.
As one lady put it, "Aren't you married to a pastor? This is cute but not appropriate." Here's a screenshot:
Meagan immediately responded to the woman - with a direct yet respectful clap back. She said:
I’m not married to a pastor. 🤦🏽♀️ i’m married to a film producer who is also a minister/motivational speaker as well. But with that being said; I don’t think pastors wives are expected to go swimming in trash bags or turtle necks 😬 lol. Godbless you sis 🙏🏾💜
Meagan's fans seemed to mostly agree with her - that her bikini picture was tasteful and not inappropriate.
Earlier this year, the fiercely religious Meagan chatted with comedian D.L. Hughley on his show and shared that she doesn't always attend church because of the judgment she receives. "If I’m being completely honest, my experience with some church folks has not been that positive," she said. "It’s unfortunate because we’re supposed to be the biggest lovers. And it’s like even if you disagree with someone or you don’t think what they’re doing is right, you’re supposed to mind your own business and pray for that person. Other times, you’re supposed to correct in love if that’s what God told you to do. And there was no correction in love. It was like a complete assault."
