Lecrae’s Wife’s Outfit at 2013 BET Awards Sparks ‘Modesty’ Debate

Lecrae’s wife, Darragh Moore, has apparently set off a debate on her rapper husband’s social networks due to the outfit she wore at the 2013 BET Awards…where Lecrae lost to Mary Mary for Best Gospel Artist. Peep the photo.

So… Lecrae shared this photo of he and his wife on the red carpet at the BET Awards on Sunday night.

He captioned it with:

“Forever my lady..” #booedup #betawards

The photo has about 20,000 “hearts” on Instagram, while the Facebook cut has more than 18,910 “likes” (and has been shared 130-plus times) and has more than 440 comments.

Apparently Mrs. Moore’s dress was a little too much for some of Lecrae’s fans. Here’s a sample of the comments (those posted the earliest and onward) on Mrs. Moore’s outfit choice, and the couple’s appearance at a BET function:

Leslie Margarita De Sotelo: Ummm… if she is so precious to you…why are u putting her on display like that?

Leslie Margarita De Sotelo: Love his music..hate his testimony…were called to be a light to this world!

Jeremiah Arevalo: “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled. What does light have to do with darkness? You have fallen, repent, Jesus is coming soon!

Leslie Margarita De Sotelo: Sure…ill be christian..doesnt seem like i have to change anything anyways…piece of cake

Krystal Lynn: Way to sell out christian values by appearing on BET, home of 106 & Park which promotes music that encourages all types of ungodly behavior and attitudes and corrupts the youth who watch

Here are some comments made in defense of the Moores (featuring the “Top Comments”):

Tricia Dunlap: Wow, you people surprise me. He can’t go to an award show? Really? Check your own lives before you hold him accountable. Even Jesus ate with sinners. How else are you going to spread the word? Certainly not by staying in your church/close circle.

Shelbie Hill: Being a child of the king is ALL about “mixing with worldly functions!” We are called to be a light in a dark world and what better way to do that than to interact with the world? Lecrae, you are such an inspiration and a light to so many people! Keep doing what you’re doing! 116!

Tay Paxton: Yall are so judgemental. Just because he went the BET awards doesn’t mean he isn’t sharing the gospel while he’s there. And I’m sure yall go to worldly functions as well

Jay Unpluckable Saville: Big up’s to my boy lecrae…man the scripture says go out & makes Disciples of all nations. Jesus was out there with tax Collectors , sinners….man you Pharisees kill me with all this Type!!!! Step outside your church & wash the inside of your cup!!!! Keep doing you crae , impacting the kingdom!

Emily Mueller Man, everyone is so judgey. I have to ask, for all of you making judgements, when was the last time you shared the Gospel with a nonbeliever? When was the last time you were AROUND a nonbeliever? (Family doesn’t count .)

Also, I’d go check for some planks in your eyes, too.

The conversation here on Mrs. Moore’s red carpet outfit is quite reminiscent of pastor’s wife and actress Meagn Good’s BET Awards outfit: Meagan Good at BET Awards 2013: Pastor’s Wife Too Sexy for TV?
