Cardi B’s future husband is in some hot water, and he may have accidentally landed in even more trouble with his lengthy apology.
Earlier today, many famous artists went after Offset for what they deemed were homophobic lyrics.
The Migos’ rapper is featured on YFN Lucci’s song called “Boss Life,” where he dropped the following line, “I cannot vibe with queers.”
British singer and songwriter MNEK took to Twitter to shame Offset especially knowing that he is deep in the fashion world with his group’s massive hit “Versace.”
The outspoken record producer wrote: “Offset saying he doesn’t vibe with queers while constantly wearing and PARADING clothes by gay designers is the REAL gag. He’s clowning himself???? was Gianni Versace not gay? This one you’re screaming Versace Versace Versace, are you not vibing? lololol.”
He went on to say: “All I’m saying is if you’re a homophobe say it with your chest.”
Offset was quick to address the reports that he is not homophobic and accidentally revealed that he has a ghostwriter.
He said he was not the one who wrote the line and added: “I didn’t write the line about gay people. I have said before since these issues before that I got a lot of love for all those people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for, and we are very cool so I am not in a place where I’m hating like that.”
The hip-hop artist added: “When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched, and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker and creepy paparazzi situation. To me, by ‘queer’ I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd.”
Offset concluded by “I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I’m offended I offended anybody.”
A fan claimed Offset’s education is to be blamed for the misuse of the word.
The person said: “Again he went to school in Georgia. I doubt they taught the difference between nouns, adjectives, and verbs. I notice they have issues articulating what they mean. I am a teacher from Alabama. I never taught in Georgia but when l tell you these teachers can’t teach baby that’s an understatement.”
Another stated: “Don’t try and back peddle now! You said what you said! He feels like gays are weird & a total abomination.LOL”
Offset’s fiancée, Cardi B, is bisexual, and her sister, Hennessy Carolina, is gay.
