Loni Love, comedian and co-host of the Emmy-winning talk show The Real, has been an open book when it comes to her relationship with actor James Welsh. The couple first went public in 2018, and Love’s happy glow is still shining bright.
But apparently, some folks seem to have a problem with the fact that Welsh happens to be white.
In a recent tweet, Love addressed people who have blame her for being in an interracial relationship while pointing out what she feels is a double standard about interracial relationships had by Black women versus Black men.
“Amazed at times at the folks concerned that I am dating a White male but for years Black males have dated White and ‘Exotic’ women and no one questions it,” she tweeted.
In response to her tweet, Love received tons of support from her followers. “Don’t pay those people any mind; love who you love & who loves you in return!” one fan tweeted.
“You are a grown woman with your own agency! Do you!” said another fan. The host told The Real viewers in March that she and Welsh met through a dating app.
