Last week, rapper T.I. faced immense backlash after revealing that he makes annual trips to a gynaecologist with his daughter, now 18, to "check her hymen is still intact".
T.I. made the admission during an appearance on the Ladies Like Us podcast, before revealing that his daughter, Deyjah, waives her right to doctor–patient confidentiality so he can access her results.
And T.I. also revealed that he ignores the doctors who have informed him that the hymen can be broken in ways other than sexual penetration.
He added: "I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact."
The comments sparked immediate backlash on social media, with many people expressing shock and disgust.
As the backlash spread, Deyjah went on to like a series of tweets describing T.I.'s actions as "disgusting", "possessive" and "controlling".
And it seems Deyjah has now taken things a step further, by unfollowing T.I. on Instagram.
She's also unfollowed him on Twitter — these are the only verified accounts Deyjah is following now.
When people noticed, they were quick to share messages of praise and support for Deyjah.
Meanwhile, the hosts of the podcast, Nazanin Mandi and Nadia Moham, have released a statement apologising for their response to T.I.'s comments and their failure to challenge him further.
Following the backlash, many qualified gynaecologists — have spoken out against "virginity testing", explaining that it's widely considered an unnecessarily invasive practice that has no medical benefit and causes profound psychological distress on its subjects.
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood highlighted the fact that "virginity" is a social construct, and explained that the appearance of a hymen cannot indicate whether or not a woman has had sex.
A spokesperson for T.I. has been contacted for comment.
