Podcast Hosts Apologize For T.I.'s OBGYN Remarks & Delete Episode


The women who host the Ladies Like Us podcast and recently had T.I. on as a guest have removed the episode and issued an apology for his remarks.

On the show, T.I. stated that he checks his 18-year-old birthday every year to make sure that her hymen is intact.

Instead of checking T.I., the podcasters giggled as he explained his mortifying ritual, which upset many listeners.

“To everyone confused, angry and hurt by the recent episode of Ladies Like Us, we want to start off by saying that we sincerely apologize for our knee jerk reaction to the uncomfortable topic,” Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham wrote in a joint statement posted to Instagram.

“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,” the post concludes.

They have since deleted the episode.
