We were shocked when Marlo Hampton uttered an anti-gay slur during her ridiculous fight with Sheree Whitfield on the January 29 episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and even fellow housewife Kim Zolciak — who was thousands of miles away in Atlanta when the argument took place — said she was “disgusted” with Marlo’s remarks.

Yet one person who has (perhaps surprisingly) chosen to forgive Marlo for her choice of words is none other than openly gay hair stylist/singer, Miss Lawrence.

On Monday, Miss Lawrence tweeted, “Marlo and I have spoke about the comment she made 2 Sheree. There was no shade@ me personally. We r great friends and truly value each other.”

He continued, “Marlo LIVES for the Kids!!! And so does Sheree! I love them both dearly!”

While we're certainly disappointed in Marlo’s choice of words, we give her props for issuing a heartfelt apology.

Please just watch what you say next time, Marlo!
