Tamera Mowry Celebrates Major Interracial Couple Milestone on Tinder but Gets Dragged Instead

Tamera Mowry expressed her joy at a significant milestone for interracial couples, but several online trolls managed to find something backlash-worthy about her celebration.


The TV personality, whose husband Adam Housley is white, took to social media to gush over the creation of an interracial couple emoji championed by Tinder.


The dating app earlier announced on Tuesday that their petition to Unicode for the creation of interracial couple emojis has yielded results.

Per MadameNoire, Unicode is behind “consistent encoding, representation, and handling of text expressed in most of the world’s writing systems.”

“Together with 50,000+ of you, we petitioned #unicode to #RepresentLove by adding interracial couple emojis—and we WON,” revealed Tinder via their Instagram page. “We're honored/proud/every phrase expressing joy. Thanks to everyone that showed their support.”



Mowry, as a Tinder ambassador and someone who can relate personally to the development, also took to Instagram with a celebratory post of her own.

Placing a picture of her and Housley side-by-side with the new emoji, the “The Real” host wrote:

“There's never been an emoji to represent interracial couples like @adamhousley and me. But there's gonna be, thanks to @tinder. I think love is beautiful, so put a [waving hand emoji] in the comments with #RepresentLove if you're with me!”



While tons of social media users praised the development and left glowing remarks about Mowry and her family, there were those who took offense with a grown woman expressing herself.

One Instagram user accused Mowry of trying to live as a “white woman” and having a fetish for white men. A Twitter user also poked fun at the “Sister Sister” alum’s post, implying she spoke too much about having a white husband.

“Me reading these Tamera Mowry tweets laughing and also cringing. Baby your husband is white. We know. We get it. Yay interracial.”

“She has to be the most desperate ultimate [expletive] ever,” said another user, slamming Mowry with a derogatory term. “She act like people don’t see her and her white man.”

Mowry, 40, and her twin sister Tia are born to a black mom and a white dad, but since marrying Housley in 2011, she has become a constant target of online racial bullying.

Last September, she was dragged on social media again after defending her husband, a former journalist at Fox News who many conclude is racist.

“There are some people who think that my husband is racist because he worked for a certain channel,” said Mowry on “The Real.” “[I will] look in that camera right there and let everybody know, my husband is not a racist.”


Her statement ended up sparking more outrage among Twitter users who shamed her for defending the man she loves.



Back in 2014, Mowry was moved to tears while describing the hateful words and comments thrown her way since she married Housley. She even recalled people saying Tia is the better twin because she married a black man.

“I’ve never experienced so much hate ever in my life. Ever! I get called ‘White man’s whore.’ The new one was ‘Back in the day, you cost $300, but now you’re giving it to him for free.’ My mom is a beautiful black woman and my dad is an amazing white man and I grew up seeing a family. I didn’t grow up seeing color, so it’s very shocking to go through this.”

Mowry is yet to respond to the latest backlash regarding her emoji post, and we’re assuming she’s channeling more energy into work at the moment. The “Twitches” star recently resumed co-hosting duties on “The Real” after taking a long break to treat viral pneumonia.
