Friend of Pastor Donnie McClurkin and fellow gospel music superstar, Erica Campbell, kicked off at popular Christian news website ‘Christian Post’ for instigating the story that Donnie McClurkin had announced his engagement to Nicole C Mullen during his appearance on the TBN show ‘Praise the Lord’.
Erica said that she had been subject to false stories by the website in the past, and accused them of “twisting pieces of truth to get more views on their site.”
Christian Post was the first to publish about Donnie McClurkin’s ‘engagement announcement’, but It was actually TBN’s ‘Praise The Lord’ show host who first made an excited declaration to the audience shouting: “Donnie McClurkin’s getting married! Come on!” Although Donnie looked taken aback by the announcement, he did confirm the news to the audience, and went on to explain why he was excited to be marrying Nicole C Mullen.
However, the word ‘engagement’ never actually came up.
Erica Campbell, in defence of her friend, said this on her social media:
“I hate misleading bloggers who take pieces of truth and twist it so they can get more views on their site. ChristianPost.com has done this to me quite a few times so I’m not surprised, but I am very disappointed in this. Yes, Pastor Donnie is in a relationship, but he hasn’t made any announcement. No one should steal the joy of making a wonderful announcement like this.”
Well, that’s Christian Post – and all of us that jumped on the story – officially TOLD!
