Earlier this week, social media users noticed a strange eulogy posted on Jazmine Sullivan's Facebook page. The post was about the recent death of gospel singer Thomas "TC" Clay, and Sullivan described how they met, including details about Clay trying to contact her repeatedly after obtaining her number. Twitter users reacted swiftly, claiming that Sullivan had curved the late singer.

On Friday, Sullivan took to Instagram to offer an apology for the post, which has since been deleted from her Facebook. "After reading ur comments I can understand how some of u feel the way u do," she wrote. "On that morning when I went to post a pic and caption abt myself, Instead I started thinking of him and the next thing I knew I was writing my story of how we met. I can see now there were details I coulda reserved but I just wanted to tell my truthful, light hearted story to lift the heavy atmosphere. The main point of my post was not to show how I "curved" him, or disrespect him by making him seem annoying, but to show how I missed the opportunity to get to know a great guy!"
