Gospel singer Darrel Walls deleted his Instagram page after a man he was intimate with leaked a video of them kissing.

According to Lovebscott.com, Walls initially shared the video to his close friends list on Instagram. But his lover apparently shared the video on his public Instagram feed, sparking an uproar among Darrel's gospel fans.

Darrel's female fans were particularly distraught over the news. But others were supportive.

"I love you Darrel Walls PERIIIOOOODDD!!! And you KNOW that ain't NEVER gonna change!!!" one person wrote on Darrel's Facebook page.

B. Scott said Darrel deactivated his IG page then reactivated it. Dallas-based journalist Shakari S. Briggs called Darrel's involuntary outing "sad" and "tragic."

"The sad part about the Darrel Walls situation is the other man making the decision to post the video of them in such an intimate setting. Darrel clearly hasn’t let the world know his stance on his sexuality, so why did the guy feel compelled to do it for him? Tragic."

The Black church frowns upon homosexuality. The church believes in the philosophy "Love the sinner, hate the sin."

Darrel is the eldest member of the Walls family gospel group.
