Kirk Franklin is defending his affinity for some secular music after one fan questioned why he would promote a Bruno Mars album.

Franklin, the gospel music executive who heads Fo Yo Soul Recordings record label where he also serves as a recording artist, composer and songwriter, let his fans on social media know how much he enjoyed mainstream singer Bruno Mars’ music.

“OK, I give in, the Bruno Mars album is dope. I guess he said somebody gotta do it,” Franklin tweeted to his over 1 million fans on Nov. 23.

The message, however, garnered mixed reactions. One fan decided to speak up about Franklin’s choice in music by asking, “secular music Kirk?”

Franklin responded by questioning if all of the social media critic’s lifestyle choices were centered around their faith.

“Do you just wear Christian clothes or eat at Christian restaurants or just watch Christian television?” Franklin asked before writing, “love u bro.”

The exchange died down quickly after the fan who questioned Franklin’s music selection said their comment was all in jest. Franklin let the person know that there was no bad blood by offering “respect back” and “apologies.”
