One week and two apologies later, the debate about whether or not Pastor Charles Ellis touched Ariana Grande’s breast at Aretha Franklin’s funeral, rages on.
But it’s no surprise that “BreastGate is getting so much traction in the #MeToo/TimesUp era, a time in which the “benefit of the doubt” is the most notable casualty.
The video evidence would suggest that there was indeed contact made vis-a-vis the preacher’s hand and the singer’s boob, but I’d be willing to bet the farm that Ellis was oblivious that his fingers had entered a no-fly zone.
The fact is, unintentional contact between two people who are in close proximity can and does happen and for that, I’m sure Pastor Ellis has suffered enough embarrassment.
To all the trolls out there - can we please move on?
