The Most Savage Celebrity Clapbacks

Emotions run high when singer shares video of pastor saying, "You’re not a wife when I marry you, you’re a wife when I find you."

Ciara got Twitter all fired up Sunday with four little words and a video she shared on Instagram.

"#LevelUp. Don't Settle," the singer captioned a video by pastor John W. Gray III. His message seemed to be that women need to check their character and raise it if they want to be a wife.

"You’re not a wife when I marry you, you’re a wife when I find you," he said to rapturous applause. "You become my wife when I marry you. But a wife is not the presence of a ring, it’s the presence of your character. Too many women want to be married, but you’re walking in the spirit of girlfriend."

This message didn't sit well with a lot of people on Twitter, and it immediately erupted in righteous wrath at the vague post, assuming all sorts of meaning. Shortly thereafter, other voices came to Ciara's defense, saying that the message is being misinterpreted by her haters. The whole debate was enough to push Ciara to the top of Twitter's trending topics, inspiring over 100,000 tweets.
