West Coast rapper Game has received backlash fo posting anti-gay jokes on Twitter yesterday and said he didn't mean to intentionally ridicule homosexuality.
Via Twitter, Game expressed his disinterest with the gay men's lifestyles.
"Aye ! I gotta question: What kinda man let another man put his d!ck in his booty.... I'm just askin n!gga that sh!it krazy tho. #buttpirates," Game tweeted Wednesday (October 27) night.
"Aint no attack on gay people, I'm just askin on the real that sh!t krazy dog. Gay women, kool ! Ellen, kool ! D!ck in the booty, not kool."
"& its a FREE WORLD, be GAY & be proud if thats ya choice.... But in the dook shoot doe ?????"
"Do what ya like (Digital Underground)."
"@garrisonb look man, go pick ya boyfriend up from work... do the cheerio & RELAX. Wasn't GAY bashin. just asked a question ha ha ha" (Game's Twitter)
Earlier this month, 50 Cent also downplayed condescending, gay-themed remarks he made on Twitter.
"The other night I made a joke about a blow job. My male followers enjoyed it. So I then went on to joke about women receiving the same.," 50 tweeted Friday (October 1).
"Some how they turned a simple joke about oral sex into a anti gay statement. I have nothing against people who choose and alternative life"
"Style in fact iv publicly stated my mom loved women. It funny how people think negative statements are news worthy but positive statements" (50 Cent's Twitter)
50's original tweet stirred controversy among bloggers during that week.
50 Cent, also known as Curtis James Jackson III, has taken his homophobic opinions, usually found on stage and screen, to cyberspace again in a recent tweet. The rapper, actor and Vitamin Water spokesman wrote: "If you a man and your over 25 and you don't eat pu**y just kill your self damn it. The world will be a better place. Lol." 50 Cent tweeted the anti-gay remark from his Blackberry using ÜberTwitter on Wednesday 9/29/2010 to his 3.3 million followers. (Fenuxe)
A few weeks ago, rapper Nicki Minaj sent words of encouragement to her gay fans and told them not to fear outsiders' negative perceptions.
"I would encourage my gay fans to be fighters and to be brave," Minaj said in an interview. "People face difficulties, no matter who you are. I faced difficulties with a lot of things. I face opposition every day, but I didn't kill myself and now, thank God, I'm here. So I want my life to be a testimony to my fans and my gay fans...I mean I could never imagine what they're going through. But I know that suicide is never the answer and I know that things always get better. So I'm supporting you guys. I love you very, very much and for the people who don't love you, they need help."
