Tyler the Creator Talks About LGBT Criticism

GLAAD and other LGBT groups spoke out against MTV VMA winner Tyler the Creator’s new album and I was pretty sad to hear all the facts about the anti-gay album. The rapper has responded to the widespread public criticism, saying “Well, I have gay fans and they don’t really take it offensive, so I don’t know. If it offends you, it offends you…If you call me a n—a, I really don’t care, but that’s just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way; I personally don’t give a sh–. I’m not homophobic. I just think ‘f***ot’ hits and hurts people. It hits. And ‘gay’ just means you’re stupid. I don’t know, we don’t think about it, we’re just kids. We don’t think about that s**t. But I don’t hate gay people. I don’t want anyone to think I’m homophobic.” No matter how you try to defend it, I don’t really see how it’s okay to say the word “fa—ot” 213 times in an album. Even Eminem wasn’t that bad.
