After fan criticism, Oprah Winfrey is reinforcing her stance an issue she believes in, and keeping gospel singer Bebe Winans off her show until domestic violence charges against him have been resolved, the Associated Press reports.

Bebe had previously taped appearances for Oprah’s karaoke challenge and was on the show as recently as Friday. However after that episode aired, viewers took issue with having him as a guest, questioning whether Oprah was guilty of a double standard by including Bebe when she spoke up against Chris Brown after his domestic assault on Rihanna.

Bebe was was charged with misdemeanor domestic assault last winter for allegedly pushing ex-wife Debra Winans to the ground and is set to appear in court Jan. 20.
