Deyjah Harris is letting her Instagram/ Twitter fingers do the talking.
Nearly a week after her father, T.I., proudly announced to the world that he attends her gynecologist appointments to "check her hymen," the 18-year-old college student has made it clear that she's not on good terms with her dad.
Most recently, she pulled the ultimate social media move, unfollowing her dad as well as a number of family members on Instagram. According to Hollywood Unlocked, Deyjah is now not following her stepmom Tiny or stepsister Zonnique Pullins.
While she has yet to publicly address her father's comments, Deyjah has liked a number of tweets that called his remarks "disgusting," "possessive" and "controlling." She additionally tweeted, "I loveeeeeee yalllllll" after receiving messages of support from fans.
As fans know, T.I.'s controversial podcast comments caused complete outrage on social media, with celebrities like Chrissy Teigen and Iggy Azalea voicing their disapproval on Twitter.
During the episode, the "Whatever You Like" rapper spoke about visiting the gynecologist with Deyjah to ensure that she's a virgin. "Right after the birthday, we celebrate...usually the day after the party, she's enjoying her gifts, I put a sticky note on the door, 'Gyno, tomorrow, 9:30,'" T.I. told the co-hosts. "We'll go and sit down and the doctor will come and talk, and you know, the doctors maintain a high level of professionalism. He's like, 'Well, you know sir, in order for me to share information...' I say, 'Deyjah they want you to sign this...so we can share information. Is there anything that you would not want me to know?'"
"I said, 'Look doc, she don't ride no horses, she don't ride no bike, she don't play no sports, man, just check the hymen please and give me back my results, expeditiously," T.I. recalled, laughing. "But I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact."
Podcast hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham later released a joint statement denouncing Tip's comments and apologizing for their "knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic."
T.I. has yet to release a statement about his remarks.
