Tamera Mowry Housley, tearfully told Oprah Winfrey on Oprah: Where Are They Now, that she was labeled a ‘white man’s whore’ among other horrific racial slurs for her marriage to Fox News correspondent Adam Housely who is white.

Teen star Tamera, 35, who’s mother is black and father is white, married Adam Housely who is white, three years ago and since their happy wedding, the couple have been attacked by online twitter trolls who have reduced the twin to an emotional wreck with the horrific harsh words against her and her husband.

The TV star who appeared alongside her sister Tia in the hit 90s sitcom, was interviewed for Oprah: Where Are They Now and made the harrowing claim that since her marriage she has ‘never experienced so much hate ever in my life, ever’.

Attacked primarily on Twitter, Mowry broke down in tears as she tried to reconcile her love for her husband with the bile of internet haters.

Tamera described the most shocking example of abuse she received online as she wiped away her tears while talking to Oprah.

‘See, this is where I get emotional, because it’s hurtful. Because when my husband and I are so openly and we’re fine with showing is love. Love. But people choose to look past love and spew hate. That’s what hurts me, because 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. I couldn’t even fathom or think of these words, because I’m a product of it. 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 saying, ‘Oh, that’s a white man. They say, ‘Oh, Tia’s a true black woman because she married a black man. Oh – I’m less of a black person because I married white? I love my husband so much. I love our family. I love our dynamic. I’m proud to be in the relationship I am because it’s based on love. Pure love.’
