“I’ll take a corny man (Russell) over a disrespectful community peen (Future) any day.”
Listen, we live in a digital age, which means everyone is sharing their opinions online nowadays. And when it comes to opinions, someone’s bound to disagree.
So when NFL-player-turned-podcaster Channing Crowder shared his views on Ciara and Russell Wilson’s relationship in a now-viral clip, it didn’t take long for the backlash to ensue.
“Russell and Ciara … yeah, if Russell ain’t have that bread, Ciara ain’t gonna be with him,” the former Miami Dolphins linebacker said on The Pivot podcast.
“Russell’s square. Russell’s square. Ciara has a good situation, but you don’t leave Future and get with Russell Wilson.”
His cohost, Fred Taylor, chimed in with a rebuttal: “I think that’s where you’re wrong, though. Women want peace.”
Ciara and the Atlanta rapper reportedly started dating in 2013, and they even got engaged on Ciara’s birthday. In May 2014, the two welcomed their son, Future Zahir Wilburn, into the world. By August, Ciara called off their engagement and their relationship due to alleged infidelity on Future’s part.
In an attempt to reconcile for their son, the musicians got back together in September 2014. By the end of the year, they officially called it quits, which included Ciara removing her “N” tattoo (which stood for Nayvadius, Future’s real name) .
So, when Fred mentioned Ciara wanting peace, this could be what he was hinting at. But Channing wasn’t trying to hear it, adding that “everyone has a type” and “he’s so god damn square. I love him on the field, but Russell is a square.”
But again, Channing’s cohosts disagreed. Ryan Clark said, “Channing, when you go from this level of toxicity, you want something stable.”
Stability and happiness is just what Ciara found in her husband, Russell. The couple first met in March 2015 and began dating shortly after. In March 2016, Ciara and Russell announced their engagement, and by July 2016, they were married.
Russell became a proud stepfather to Ciara’s son, Future. They would later welcome two children together.
And from what I’ve seen, Russell and Ciara truly don’t bother anyone. All they do is love on each other and mind their business, so it didn’t really surprise me when people on Twitter came to the couple’s defense after hearing Channing’s comments.
