Game Clarifies Gay Comments

The rapper says closeted gay men make it worse for everyone.

Published September 8, 2011

Known for making controversial statements, Game’s latest are directed toward closeted gay men.


The Cali rapper called TMZ today to explain a recent statement he made on VLAD TV where he says, “Game has a problem with gay people pretending not to be gay because you can be fooling someone and give them AIDS and they can die.”


After being asked if he was insinuating that all gay men have AIDS, the 31-year-old tells TMZ, “You can be gay and be cool, that way you give people the option on whether they want to deal with you sexually.”


He goes on to say, “I’m not necessarily saying that everybody who hasn’t come out of the closet has AIDS … but from a woman’s standpoint she would like to know that you’re straight versus gay before she has sex with you.”


While he agrees everyone is at risk, he’s adamant that anyone who is on the "down low" should just come out.
