Fox News correspondent Adam Housley was quick to defend his wife, former Sister, Sister star Tamera Mowry-Housley, following a tweet she made during the vice presidential debate last week.
Mowry-Housley retweeted a comment by Fox News anchor Greta Van Susteren that said, “I think I might turn this off if it were not my job to watch it…the interruptions make it impossible to learn anything.” Mowry-Housley then added, “That’s all I’ma say about the debate. 😉 God bless us, everyone.”
The harmless tweet then received several negative responses, some of which were racial and others that referenced Housley’s employer and his wife’s supposed political affiliation.
Housley then leapt to his wife’s defense, writing, “Seriously?! You attack my wife @TameraMowryTwo because she said people were talking over each other. Then assume who she’s voting for,“ followed by, “Then make racist/rude comments 2 @tameramowrytwo because she married a white man who works for Fox?! You should be ashamed of yourselves.”
Some users defended the couple, however, but Housley was obviously still bothered by the amount of negativity directed toward his wife. Mowry-Housley, on the other hand, simply rolled with the punches. She wrote, “Please remember, the only opinion that matters is Gods opinion of you. #bulliessuck” and quoted a Bible verse, “Matthew 5:11 ‘blessed r u when they revile n persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against u falsely for my sake.’ — thanks @drearegalado”
The couple, who are expecting their first child later this month, are no strangers to controversy. Last week, Mowry-Housley told Zap2It that certain websites were “saying horrible things about the fact that [they’re] an interracial couple.” Housley came to his wife’s defense then as well.
“You don’t mess with my wife,” Housley said. “You don’t mess with my family. That’s just the way it’s going to be.”
