In honor of the DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good‘s fifth wedding anniversary, we decided to throw it back to 2016 when he checked a woman over her comments about his wife’s appearance.

While promoting their book, The Wait: Practice for Finding the Love of Your Life and the Life You Love, the couple geared up for questions from the audience…and things took a slight negative turn.

A woman (whose face we never see) called out Good saying, “This is not offensive, but I was at the grocery store and I looked at a newsstand and saw you, and you had your breasts showing,” said the unidentified woman. “So, I wasn’t going to come here, but the Lord brought me here to see you. You are a beautiful young woman and your testimony is awesome. The Lord let me come and push past the judgment…this is real. Because you have to make sure what you say and what you do match up, you understand? So, we gon’ cover up right?”

What happened next was absolutely gold. Skip to the 52:30 mark to watch DeVon’s response.

First, the dress that shut down the 2013 BET Awards, pulled from Unsung Hollywood: Meagan Good:

While Meagan is no stranger to head-turning red carpet looks, judging a woman based on her appearance has never been the proper way to do things. Here are a few of the outfits that could’ve spawned the churchgoer’s reaction.

TELL US: Do you agree with the churchgoer or should Meagan be free to wear whatever she likes?
