Bishop TD Jakes made headlines this week when he called Oxygen’s reality show Preachers of L.A . “junk,” and one of the show’s stars has responded. Deitrick Haddon called into our sister station, Praise 102.5 / 102.9, and spoke to Darlene McCoy about Jakes’ comments and the show in general.

Calling the show “a necessary risk,” Deitrick said he was shocked at Jakes’ reaction:

“I have the absolute utmost respect for Bishop TD Jakes and what he represents. I considered him one of our generals in this generation. I was a bit taken back and shocked when I saw his view on the show, being that he’s a forefather in unorthodox, unconventional methods of sharing the Gospel, whether it be through MegaFest or partnering with comedians or Oprah.”
