Grammy-winning singer T-Pain publicly unleashed some anger this week in light of alleged homophobic comments shot toward his assistant on Twitter.
According to reports, T-Pizzle hopped onto the social networking site to speak out in defense of the employee.
After his assistant was bullied online, rapper T-Pain dissed the haters with a tweet reminding everyone that gay men don’t lust after every single guy in the world. “Attention homophobic idiots: if you’re not attractive to straight women, you’re probably not attractive to gay men. You can unclench now,” T-Pain posted on Twitter. “Just see a lot of ppl lookin at my assistant like ‘oh no better not go that way. That guy wants my butt.’ Don’t be an idiot. Ur still fugly.” (New Now Next)

This week, New York rapper A$AP Rocky clarified his stance toward gay rights.
“I’m not a gay rights activist,” A$AP clarified in an interview. “I guess because one day an interviewer asked me, ‘How do you feel about gay people,’ and I just honestly said, ‘I don’t care what they do.’ Everybody just took it [to another level]. It’s not that serious. I’m not no gay rights activist. They humans like everybody else. Why everybody keep talking about that? … I don’t want that to be a thing that everybody keeps asking me. I don’t care what straight people do, I don’t care what gay people do. I don’t care what nobody do. That’s they business. I just care about what I do. You know what I’m saying? … I’m not no gay rights activist. I don’t know what it takes to treat gay people right and what rights they don’t have. All I know is when you say certain things about gay people, people go crazy, like, act homophobic and that’s how it used to be and that’s how I used to be but I’m not like that anymore. If you’re gay, that’s your business. I really don’t care, at all. It’s like, I’m tired of them asking me about this gay [stuff]. It’s getting on my nerves, quite frankly.” (106 KMEL)
Last year, rap mogul Jay-Z showed his support for same-sex marriage.
Rapper Jay-Z on Monday threw his support behind President Barack Obama’s stance on legalizing same-sex marriage. The rapper, whose real name is Shawn Carter, said not allowing gay marriage was “holding the country back,” in an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow. “What people do in their own homes is their business and you can choose to love whoever you love. That’s their business. [It] is no different than discriminating against blacks. It’s discrimination plain and simple,” Jay-Z, a longtime supporter of Obama, added. (My Fox DC)
