Podcast Hosts Apologize For Laughing At T.I.'s Comments About Daughter's Hymen

Sometimes in the midst of an explosive interview, we forget about the people on the other side of the microphone who prompted and reacted to the bombshells being dropped.

Not the case when it comes to the shocking interview T.I. gave this week about his daughter.

In case you somehow missed the news, T.I. went on the Ladies Like Us podcast this week and revealed that he takes his daughter to the gynecologist every year.

On it's own, that's kind of nice, but his reason behind it got everyone talking, and not in a good way. "We have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen," he said of his 18 year old daughter Deyjah in the now-deleted episode as the podcast hosts laugh.

T.I. said that he makes sure his daughter signs the confidentiality form allowing her doctor to share results with him.

"Just check the hymen please and give me back my results — expeditiously," T. I. said was his response when the doctor attempted to tell him the hymen can break through other ways besides sex.

"I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact," he concluded.

Nadia and Nazanin, the hosts of the podcast, received a ton of backlash for laughing along and not challenging T.I. on his answers.

They took to Instagram to release an apology, writing, "To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of Ladies Like Us, we want to start off by saying we sincerely apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic."

"We were completely caught off guard/shocked and looking back, we should have reacted much differently in the moment."

"The comments that were made and the reaction that followed are not in any way a reflection of our personal views on the topic. We support and love Women and feel that their bodies are theirs to do with as they wish."

"There was absolutely no ill intent towards any part involved & [we] feel deeply awful about the entire incident."

"We are not perfect, take full accountability of our lack of action & are continuously learning along the way. We know an apology doesn't make this go away but we welcome the discussion — that's what our podcast is about."

The episode in question has now been deleted.
