Cardi B Stands By Her Man Following Homophobic Lyric Controversy

 

 

Cardi B is not having it with people calling out her fiancé, Offset, for said homophobic lyrics. The Migos rapper has recently been under fire for his latest appearance on the song “Boss Life," with artist YFN Lucci. In the song, the 26-year-old says, “ I cannot vibe with queers.”  Of course, the Internet immediately took to social media to voice their outrage on the homophobic slur. 

In response to all the criticism, the Georgia-born star posted a photo of the definition of the word 'queer' to justify the way he used it. "I didn’t write the line about gay people. I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people, " he said, adding, "My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that. When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation. To me that “queer” I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd. I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I’m offended I offended anybody."

Following the backlash, the "Bodak Yellow" singer recorded a video through Periscope to defend her fiancé. “I’m not going to let somebody call him ‘homophobic’ when I know that he’s not,” the Bronx-beauty said.  “I’m saying this because I seen him around these … around gays, and he treats them with the same respect he treats everybody. He never acts uncomfortable and he just don’t care.”

She added, “It has a different vocabulary on the dictionary...Now, that’s a word that you guys say that it’s a bad word for gays -- I never even heard that word in the first place. Why don’t y’all educate people about it? A lot of people are not aware about what’s wrong or right in the LGBT community. Why don’t we do things to educate instead of bashing and trying to label something that they not?”
