There are still people out here following Meagan Good‘s Instagram page, waiting for her to share a photo of herself wearing some revealing clothing so they can shame her for not carrying herself in a way indicative of the wife of a “pastor,” and we’re tired. If we’re tired, we can only assume the actress is exhausted.
However, the 38-year-old Intruder star, married to DeVon Franklin, handles her critics, to this day, with a lot of grace. A great example of that was the beauty sharing a photo of herself in a bikini from her recent shoot in Essence and having someone tell her she looked inappropriate.
“Aren’t you married to a pastor” the woman asked on Instagram. “This is cute but not appropriate.”
Meagan could have ignored the comment or spazzed out, but she chose to clarify some things for the critic, while also politely setting her straight.
“Lol no I’m not married to a pastor. I’m married to a film producer who is also a minister/motivational speaker as well,” she wrote. “But with that being said; I don’t think pastors wives are expected to go swimming in trash bags or turtle necks lol. Godbless you sis.”
Meagan and DeVon have been married since 2012, and about a year after they tied the knot, she started encountering people who had a lot to say about how she dresses and claimed it’s not suitable as the wife of a man of God. Who could forget the plunging BET Awards dress drama?
While she initially responded to detractors in an emotional manner, over the years, she’s done a great job of reminding holier than though individuals to carry themselves like better Christians while they’re worried about how she dresses due to the man whom she’s married to.
As she said in 2016, “for anyone who may disagree with me, I ask that they pray for me in love instead of slandering or attacking me. I believe that is the true essence of who God has called us all to be—lovers. I believe He can handle the rest.”
