Rapper T.I. came under fire this week after revealing that, when he takes his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah, to the gynecologist, he gets the doctor to make sure her hymen is intact. Despite widespread criticism of the artist born Clifford Harris, Jr., The Real co-host Jeannie Mai spoke out in his favor.

Per Bossip, Mai, who is dating T.I.'s fellow Atlanta rap superstar Young Jeezy, defended the violation:

“I support what T.I. Is doing because I understand how hard it must be to communicate with an opposite gendered daughter, especially in this time."

Mai added:

"“Especially what he must have seen and known, you know? Of what boys are like. And for me, I was a very wild girl, I didn’t like rules, I rebelled a lot…Clearly he is super concerned about today’s world and everything[...]" 

Mai then got slammed on social media by understandably upset viewers.
