Popular worship leader Chandler Moore of the Maverick City Music Collective has issued a defiant non-apology to critics who have taken exception to his public post-marital activities, voicing their displeasure after he posted a photo from his wedding day where his new bride, Hannah Poole, is twerking on him, much to his apparent delight.
Moore, 26, is a singer-songwriter based in Atlanta who has taken off in popularity the last few years. His album Maverick City Vol. 3/ Part 1 recently won a Billboard Music Award for the Top Gospel album, and only 2 months ago he recently collaborated with Steven Furtick’s Elevation Worship band on the album ‘This Old Basement.”
The musician was inundated with criticism on social media last week after he captioned a wedding picture of his wife bent over at the waist while he presses into her from behind, hand on her lower back in a very sexually suggestive action:
“@hgracemoore knows how to twerrrrrrrk. #hallelujah JEEESUS,
Though news outlets like the Christian Post are claiming he apologized for the incident- he did nothing of the sort.
Rather in a follow-up post, Moore claps back at his critics, suggesting that his wife was simply “dancing on him” on account of “great music being played” and that he apologizes “if it offended you that I posted it.”
Far from apologizing, Moore, who has a young son from a previous relationship, went on the offensive and blasted those “demeaning” his marriage by claiming that this sexual irreverence is a sign he is bound to have a rough marriage- a charge Moore vehemently denies.
Moore explains that “the first principle of correction is proximity to the one who is about to be corrected, and that none of his critics would know him or anything about him, and therefore their concern is none of his.
For his part, he intends to ignore the haters and those seeking to shame him, opining that his wife will continue to twerk on him and there’s nothing anyone can do about it, as he does not care.
