Young Thug is cool with a lot of people in rap. A quick scroll through his Instagram shows him taking pics with Migos, Waka Flocka Flame, Travi$ Scott, Jaden Smith and more. But we noticed he’s finally following someone on Instagram: Caitlyn Jenner.
Thug hasn’t been shy about letting the public know about his feelings towards Jenner. According to several gossip sites, he’s called her his inspiration to be free. “Caitlyn Jenner is my hero,” he’s said, referring to her courage to poise for Vanity Fair.
The Atlanta rapper has made headlines in the past for his wardrobe choices — skirts, women’s dresses, skinny jeans, you name it. But Thug defends that is just him expressing himself and people shouldn’t be so fixated on that. Who knows, maybe Thug and Caitlyn will team up and do something special for the transgender community and spread a unified message of acceptance.
