A pastor in Memphis, Tennessee is denying claims he posted a sexually explicit remark to an Instagram photo of popstar Nicki Minaj.
It appears William Henry Dewberry III, an elder at the Church Of God In Christ, who’s listed on Instagram as a ‘God Fearing Man and Retired U.S. Soldier,’ wrote ‘I’ll love to eat your booty @nickiminaj,’ beneath the bodacious photo, alongside a series of winking tongue-out emojis.
Since receiving backlash, Dewberry has come forward with a rebuttal, suggesting the account belongs to an impersonator.

He since reached out to his friends on Facebook, asking for help in reporting the account.
‘Saints, I need your help,’ Dewberry wrote in the post, which has since been set to private on his page.
‘Somebody created a fake Instagram page under my name. I don’t know who did this. But, this needs to come down ASAP! May somebody report this IMMEDIATELY! I did not create this. I already have an Instagram page, and this one ain’t me!!!!’
One user replied saying, ‘How is this fake? You’ve used this page.’

In another alleged incident, Dewberry attacked a woman named Tarshiela Tole with the account
It seems the Instagram account has regularly used since January 2016, and shows everyday pictures of Dewberry spending time with his loved ones.
The account has thousands of followers and vice versa.
In another alleged incident, Dewberry attacked a woman named Tarshiela Toles, according to Complex.
The tirade said Toles is the ‘biggest whore in Columbus, Georgia’ and threatened to leak nude images of her if she did not stop broadcasting Dewberry on Snapchat.
Another Facebook user claimed she was blocked from account, adding that the ‘dude has a history of this sh-t’ and once sexually harassed her.
Another woman defended the pastor, saying ‘This is bogus! Elder III would not do anything like this.’
It’s unclear whether or not the account actually belongs to Dewberry — and if not, who may be responsible.
