Tamera Mowry Gets Emotional Over Internet Racism
Famous child star Tamera Mowry appeared on the OWN network this weekend with twin sister Tia in Oprah’s “Where Are They Now?” series, which airs Friday nights on the network. The show catches up with Oprah’s past guests and highlights where the celebrities are in their current lives, noting the ups and downs of success and fame.
On this episode, Tamera discussed the overwhelming amount of internet racism she’s experienced since marrying Fox News correspondent Adam Housley in 2011, a topic that made her break into tears. “I get called ‘white man’s whore’,” Tamera admits in the video. “I’ve never experienced so much hate.”
The backlash is overwhelming since Tamera herself came from a mixed household. “It’s very hard for me to think of it because I’m a product of it. My mom is a beautiful black woman and my dad is an amazing white man. I grew up seeing a family. So it’s very shocking to go through this.”
Since the segment aired, fans have been taking to Twitter to defend Tamera and show their support.

Earlier this month, the sisters also decided to call it quits on their reality show — seems that the families are ready to live a quiet, peaceful life away from the criticisms of the public eye.
