Tamera Mowry-Housley speaks out about interracial marriage bullies

Interracial marriage laws were lifted in 1967, but many people across the country are still angered by it. Tamera Mowry-Housley recently spoke out about the severe online bullying she has received—just because her husband is white.

Despite the fact that Mowry-Housley and her twin sister Tia come from interracial parents as well—their mother is black and their father is white—people seem to ignore the fact and unleash hate speech and negativity.

In an episode of Where Are They Now on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), talking about the intense online bullying brought Tamera to tears.

“I’ve never experienced so much hate ever in my life, ever,” Tamera said on OWN.

She went on to say that she has been called ‘white man’s whore.’ Someone also had the nerve to tell her, ‘Back in the day, you cost $300 but now you’re giving it to ‘em for free.’

“It’s very hard for me to think of it because I’m a product of it. My mom is a beautiful black woman and my dad is an amazing white man. I grew up seeing a family,” said Tamera.

Her husband, Fox News correspondent, Adam Housley, appeared on The O’Reilly Factor and had a strong message for the bullies.

“Just because Tamera married a white man doesn’t means she’s any less black. Just because I married a black woman doesn’t mean that my eyes are clouded. It has nothing to do with color,” stated Housley. “My niece and nephew are mixed-race. My son is mixed-race. It’s like, OK, get over it.”

Tamera and Adam have a one year-old son named Aden.
