Rapper T.I. has come under fire for saying that he checks with his daughter’s doctor every year to assure she’s still a virgin.

According to Buzzfeed News, when asked if he’s had the sex talk with his daughters, the rapper said, "Not only have we had the conversation — we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen.” He shared his sentiments during an interview on the Ladies Like Us podcast. People quickly reacted the statements.
