After facing intense backlash earlier this month for stating that he goes to the gynecologist with his teenage daughter each year to check her hymen, rapper T.I. defended himself this week during an appearance on the Facebook Watch show Red Table Talk. T.I. told host Jada Pinkett Smith that he thinks a false narrative about his comments has been sensationalized but he also defended his choice to protect his daughter from the little slimy, grimy, chubby-fingered little boys who want to just come and defile and destroy the sanctity that I have.
The rapper made the initial comments during an episode of the podcast Ladies Like Us, which was released earlier this month. T.I. was speaking with hosts Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham about parenting when he was asked about whether hes had the sex talk with his daughters, BuzzFeed News reported.
The rapper, who has six children, brought up how he handles the discussion with his oldest daughter, 18-year-old Deyjah Harris.
Not only have we had the conversation. We have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen, T.I. said, according to BuzzFeed. Yes, I go with her. He also informed the podcast hosts, as well as their listeners, that as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact.
His original comments faced swift backlash on social media. Idk who needs to hear this but virginity is a made-up social construct, and it has absolutely nothing to do with your hymen, tweeted Planned Parenthood in a long thread. This is horrible on so many levels, tweeted prominent gynecologist Jennifer Gunter.

Ack! He needs to change his name to T.M.I.
Those spectacles make him look smart.
“The sanctity that I have”
When she’s 30, the nut will probably still want a hymen check.
Wow. How do you even begin to reason with somebody like that?
I’m not sure what to think. Here’s a rapper looking out for his daughter, but perhaps a bit too invasively. And then talking about it.
Everyone should stay far, FAR away from anyone spouting something as evil as “Idk who needs to hear this but virginity is a made-up social construct”.
This person has no moral boundaries and definitely refuses to honor God as God in their lives.
What a ridiculous statement.
I know what you mean. I applaud his efforts to do what he can to make sure his daughter makes wise decisions but.
He also won’t let her date any boys named Buster.
It’s literally, “Everything I don’t like is a social construct.”
Yeah. Damn dirty social constructs have been preventing us from enjoying life ever since The Garden of Eden.
What would happen then?
>>>tweeted prominent gynecologist Jennifer Gunter<<<
I wasn’t aware that ther were “prominent” Gynecologist’s.
Is that the same as Board Certified?
Aaaaah...you went there.
I’ve never heard of her. Not sure how one achieves “prominence”.
effing control freak
Who doesn’t need a good hymen check every once in a while?
