One preacher out of Brooklyn who is well-known gif giving sermons while sporting full Dior suits and an overt level of bling made quite a spectacle in his most recent sermon when he violently shoved a woman as part of an early morning Sunday service in a shocking bit which has since gone viral online.
As the leader of the Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries chapter in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn, Bishop Lamor Whitehead was carrying out a sermon from the pulpit at his church when one woman in the group seemingly started to shout out. Whitehead, who back in July had been robbed mid-sermon, called out the woman to accuse her of recording him and called her up to the pulpit.
“You wanna come preach?” posited Whitehead of the woman. “You want to come preach, come up here. I’m gonna make you famous, yes Lord.”

As she approaches due to the request, Whitehead quickly grabs her by the neck and starts to shove her very forcefully, then starts to speak in tongues.
“Now remove her out of here, move her out of here,” he states.
While seemingly speaking to the woman, who at that point had been shoved out of the frame of the ongoing Livestream, Whitehead exclaimed, “Press whatever charges you want, you’re not going to come in my space. I feel threatened.”
Just a few minutes later, Whitehead kicked the Sunday service back off.
“Let’s get back to the word of God,” he stated.
According to a report from The New York Daily News, both parties were escorted out of the church in handcuffs. Reportedly, the woman in the incident was identified as Tarsha Howard, and it was also reported that she was slammed with charges of trespassing and disrupting a religious service. Whitehead explained to the local outlet that he felt vindicated.
“They lock me up in front of my children, in front of my wife, in front of my church,” explained Whitehead. “They publicly embarrassed me and then they drop all the charges after two hours and apologize to me.”
Whitehead spoke out about the ordeal on Facebook Live later that same day, as he made his way home in his Rolls Royce. He made the claim that the then unidentified woman he had been shown shoving had been issuing threats against his family seemingly in connection with an ongoing lawsuit.
“I know that everyone’s building a narrative, but it is what it is,” he stated, as reported by the Daily Mail. “We had some visitor in the church, and they were sent by two nobodies — two bloggers who are nobodies. And they were sent into my church to disrupt my church.”
“They came in videoing, and it was a whole set-up,” he went on. “That’s when I took action and I grabbed the young woman and I escorted her out.”
The entire event was captured on the normal livestream feed from the church, as was yet another odd incident this past summer when Whitehead, his wife, and a few of the congregants were robbed of over $400,000 in jewelry during a sermon.
“I didn’t know if they wanted to shoot the church up or if they were just coming for a robbery,” Whitehead stated at that time.
