When a shirtless R&B icon like Tank hits the stage to perform a bedroom banger like “F**kin With Me,” the chance you’ll find any complaints about the performance is slim to none.
Unless, for some people apparently, he’s crooning it out at the D.C. Black Pride event.
The R&B-soul veteran showed up for the annual festivities this year and sung to his heart’s content for the D.C. Black Pride crowdgoers, with several individuals from the front of the crowd quite visibly enjoying the performance. When the internet caught wind of the topless stage set, however, 140-character debates started flying.
From Tank’s sexuality, to his alleged cash come-up behind the performance to the necessary defense of artists’ presence at events like Black Pride, here’s how people are taking in a Tank presence for the LGBT celebration.
