Inspirational girl duo, Trin-i-tee 5:7's
appearance on BET's 106 & Park last month,
is creating new controversy. Some Christian
viewers who were disappointed with their
wardrobe choices, as well as their answers to
some of the hosts' questions, voiced those
concerns via the social networking site,
The complaints were surrounding a tight
black mini dress worn by Angel (left) on
national television, which some felt was in
poor taste; also, the ladies said the gospel was
"too heavy" and made people
"uncomfortable," which set off a firestorm.
Angel and Chanel, who are signed to Matthew
Knowles' Music World Gospel label, engaged
in a war of tweets as verbal shots were
thrown back and forth over what the right
biblical stance is on certain issues.
Trin-i-tee 5:7 Taking Heat for Outfits & Answers on BET's 106

Instead of trying to post the entire convoluted argument from @TheRealT57, EEW BUZZ editors
have chosen, instead, to post the video and allow you to witness the appearance in question.
T57's Chanel said on the show, "We're not preachy. We're not trying to judge people. We want you
to know that God loves you for who you are, accepts you for who you are, wherever you are right
now in your life. That's important to us. And um, we just kinda want to be that face for our
generation, to know that you can, you know, be who you are, and not necessarily try to be this
super spiritual hero. But just embrace yourself and love yourself..."
No one can deny that T57 does not fit into the mold of the widely accepted norm for Christian
artists. They also push the envelope with their edgy wardrobe choices. The question remains, how
far is too far?
