Days after an emotional clip of his wife, Tamera Mowry-Housely, went viral, FOX correspondent Adam Housely, is publicly defending her against the “bigots” who don’t approve of their relationship.
“Yes, I am white. Yes, she is half-black. Marrying a white man does not erase her color and marrying a woman who is half-black does not mean I am blinded,” Housely told TVNewser days after Tamera’s tearful story went viral. “The problem isn’t pigmentation … the problem is backwards, bigoted thought from people who should know better.”
“The fact that in this day and age, we get attacked for our interracial relationship is beyond sad … it is pathetic,” he said.
As previously reported by NewsOne, Mowry-Housely and her twin sister, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, appeared on an episode of OWN’s Where Are They Now, and Tamera burst into tears as she shared the vitriol directed her way:
“Because when my husband and I are so openly– and we’re fine with showing– is love,” she said. “Love. But people choose to look past love and spew hate. That’s what hurts me because I’ve never experienced so much hate ever in my life. Ever.
“I get called ‘White man’s whore,’ she said. “The new one was, back in the day, you cost $300, but now you’re giving it to him for free.”’
Tia, who seemed shocked by her sister’s experience, said her experience is completely different: ” I get the opposite, actually. I’ve had people say that you’ve done it right by marring a white man.”
