Boosie Badazz, right or wrong, speaks his mind.
During a recent interview with Vlad TV, the Baton Rouge, Louisiana, rapper was asked what he thought about more homosexual representation on TV, and uh, he took it to a different place.
“They tryna make everybody f*****g gay,” Boosie said. “They putting it on our culture. They’re putting it everywhere. Gay stuff is everywhere. I think that they’re just trying to do it to make a monetary gain. They’re not doing it for the gays. They’re not really fans of the gays. They’re doing it for monetary gain, man. They try to make money off these people, man. You got cartoons that have gays. On Cartoons! These are kids. Let kids make their own decision if they wanna go that way. [A] six and seven year old, five year old shouldn’t be turned onto gay cartoon when their mind not even developed yet. What if they like how that cartoon talk? Now, you’re forcing them to be gay. Every TV show is gays. They’re kissing each other. It’s out of hand.”
Boosie wanted to clarify that he doesn’t hate gay people but doesn’t understand the influx of their representation in media. He did say that if he found out that his son was gay he would “slap his a** back straight.” So there’s that.
“I don’t hate gay people at all,” he said. “I know plenty gay people. But don’t force it on ’em to be gay. Don’t do that. I just feel like that’s wrong. I came home and was like, ‘What the f**k is going on?’ I was like, ‘What the f**k is going on?’ It was out of hand, man.”
