Kirk Franklin’s son released explicit audio of the gospel singer’s threats: ‘I will break your neck’
March 14, 2021 at 4:41 p.m. CDT
An ugly family exchange was thrust into public view Saturday when Kirk Franklin’s estranged son published audio of the gospel legend berating him in a profanity-laden phone call that ends with his father screaming, “I will break your neck. Don’t you ever disrespect me.”
The elder Franklin, 51, is a beloved and influential figure in the gospel music world and is widely credited with popularizing modern gospel in the mainstream. He posted an apology to his fans later that night that drew even more attention — and polarized reactions — to the rancorous father-son exchange. By Sunday, “Kirk Franklin” was a Twitter trending topic.
Kerrion Franklin, 32, posted a clip of the exchange on Instagram on Saturday and included a caption that said he doesn’t feel safe around his father. “I don’t think I’ll ever trust my father to be alone around him ever again,” he wrote.
After a muffled argument, the elder Franklin is heard in the audio telling his son, ″You need to get your … a-- out of the way before I break my foot off in your a--."
“I dare you,” the son shoots back, before cursing and telling his father to shut up. Franklin erupts with, “I will break your neck” and abruptly ends the call.
“'I’ll break your neck'? Is that a threat?” Kerrion muses aloud in the video clip once his father is off the line.
In the direct-to-camera apology that Kirk Franklin shared across his official social media profiles late Saturday, he called his family’s relationship with his eldest son “toxic.”
“Recently, my son and I had an argument that he chose to record. I felt extremely disrespected in that conversation, and I lost my temper. And I said words that are not appropriate. And I’m sincerely sorry to all of you. I sincerely apologize,” Franklin said.
Franklin said the family has engaged in counseling for years to “rectify this private family matter” and claimed his son selectively excluded a portion from their explosive call in which Franklin tried to bring in the family’s therapist.
He ended his apology asking for prayers.
Neither Kirk nor Kerrion Franklin could be reached for comment Sunday, and it remains unclear what prompted their argument. But the viral phone conversation is not the first time Kerrion Franklin has indicated there was a deep rift between him and his father. In 2018, he claimed in a since-deleted Instagram post that his father was trying to kill him. In more recent posts, he said he has been estranged from his family for 14 years and repeatedly denied invitations to family dinners and holiday gatherings.
On Sunday, he hinted that a “full interview” was forthcoming.
While such private-made-public disputes appear to offer a view into the personal lives of famous figures, it’s the public’s reaction that is actually more revealing, sociologist Robert Reece said. Social media exacerbates the idea that in cases like the Franklins’ fight, people have to side with either the parent or the child — as if the issues offer clear-cut binary choices.

He recorded to taint his dad or what?
A 32 year old should know better how to handle his parents.

I see, I saw...... I see the son challenging the father to a boxing match, I see them settling this family quarrel in a boxing ring and the father will win the fight by Knock out in round nine......
So I have seen and So shall it be.

This is really uncalled for.
Private family matter, just threats, obviously not truly intended to harm but to Instill some fear and respect into his son, as many parents do and say to their children, na hin some dey proudly carry come publish for public space as if dem don win jackpot.
For people who do such things to others, happily exposing other people's unsavory private incidents as this, I hope they wouldn't receive from men the same, pressed down shaken together and running over.
"Do unto others what you would have them do unto you", says Jesus.

He sounds like he was provoking him.
His son is under the influence/plain stupid/paid, that's what's got atheists obsessed with Christianity itching to post about it.
Having children at 18 must be a contributing factor in how he grew up so disrespectful. His son is far from the way.

Kirk Franklin is a MUSICIAN, people who go about thinking of what to say (sing) in order for them to get more fans (subscribers) for their songs and followers on social media.
So what's new when such a person behaves like a frustrated soul that he is?
The son just want the millions revering his father to know the true IDENTITY of a musician that's all!

BRATISLAVA:The son posted the video not atheists . Stop blaming innocent people. Atheists aren't the problem.

I can categorically tell you that this is what is obtainable in the privacy of most Christian pastors and ministers, if not all.
When I was still a devout Christian, I was privileged to join a lot of departments in my church with the intention both to serve God with my all and to learn from fellow Christians, after all, iron is supposed to sharpen iron.
I was in Teaching department, Missions (Evqngelism) department, Cleaning department, Publicity department, Youth department, Youth leaders and occassionaly Admin department.
In hindsight, I wish I never joined most of these departments cos it exposed me to things I wish I never saw.
I saw leaders keeping malice, cursing each other out in every slight provocation.
Leaders who had very hostile relationships with their own spouses or children.
I saw leaders slap their own members over provocations, etc
All these brought me back to reality that Christianity can't really stop man from being man.
If you're an angry bird by nature, you will still be an angry bird in Christianity.
The only difference is you can hide it in public maybe because you don't want to be suspended in your department but at home, you're still going to be an angry bird.
I even got closer to even the general overseer and pastor of the church cos my testimony got his attention.
When you get closer to pastors and ministers you get exposed to their very human side which involves their greed for money, arrogance, cursing those who disappoint them, their malicious acts between one another, their adulterous ways, etc.
I realised there was little difference between these ministers and unbelievers except when they were on the pulpit or you approached them on spiritual matters.
Meaning they were only talking the talk but could not really walk the walk.
Although the GO was and is still a man I strongly admire for his indepth knowledge of the Bible and how to break it down even for an atheist to understand, but having taught his foundation classes and read his books and mission and vision statement, I can say he has deviated from the purpose God called him. He claimed Jesus appeared to him and told him to teach his people the way of righteousness but hardly teaches that.
Rather he says what he knows his congregation wants to hear.
Perhaps because Preaching righteousness actually chases people away from his church and he wanted more congregation, more tithes and offerings, etc.
Clearly the competition among pastors is unbelievable.
Oyedepo is already renovating his church to become the biggest cathedral in the world.lol
My understanding of this Kirk Franklin and his son's saga is simply that it reveals Kirk's nature behind closed doors.
His son having being at the receiving end of his hostility finally decided to let the world see his father for whom he truly is.
Any minister can pretend to be a Christian and even speak in christianese when their livelihood and personal ambitions are hanging on it.
But what happens when the camera isn't rolling is what shows the true person.
While this should probably be a private family affair, Kirk is a public figure who had been pretending to the world for decades. His son simply wants to see who his father is behind closed doors.
Why do you think Pastor's children are usually the most wayward? Because they see the true picture of their parent's pretenses.

BRATISLAVA:Wow! If Jesus Christ were a grave, He would be rolling in it at this comment here. After what He taught, this is what some pretend to have gained from Him?

Don't even understand what you're trying to say. Can you state it clearly?
|Re: Kirk Franklin’s Son Released Explicit Audio Of The Gospel Singer’s Threats: by PropheticMike: 12:59pm On Mar 29, 2021|
BRATISLAVA:He is a confused person seeking relevance. don't waste your time with him
|Re: Kirk Franklin’s Son Released Explicit Audio Of The Gospel Singer’s Threats: by PropheticMike: 1:01pm On Mar 29, 2021|
BRATISLAVA:He doesn't have anything of importance to the gospel to say. he always insults
