Young Thug is catching heat for his alleged offensive comments.
It’s no secret that Young Thug’s style frequently crosses gender boundaries, he even rocks a dress in the cover art for his mixtape Jeffrey. The Atlanta rapper has maintained that he is heterosexual despite the constant accusations calling his sexuality into question. Any well-informed ally of the LGBTQ community would know though, that a person’s sexual orientation and gender identity are NOT mutually exclusive. So Thug’s choice of fashion is more than okay and even considered more of a norm in 2019.
Well it might come as surprise to some, to hear that the rapper is now being accused of making ignorant comments when asked about his sexuality recently. Mats Nileskär is well known a hip-hop journalist that had a Q&A session on Reddit yesterday and spoke about a conversation he had with Young Thug.
When Nileskär was asked if Young Thug was “a weird dude in person” he replied saying: “Pretty sweet, but slightly sensitive when we talked about ATL gayscene.” He was of course asked to elaborate and continued, “My question was pretty simple: ‘You being this inventive gender bender-did you get any inspiration from the ATL gayscene?’. And then he became pretty mad and ended his tantrum with ‘I am too rich to be gay.'”
Now y’all know it’s Pride Month and no LGBTQ slander will be tolerated! Thug has yet to comment on the alleged comments but we’re hoping they aren’t true.
