Lil Scrappy On Frank Ocean’s Sexuality: ‘Gay Is The Gateway To AIDS’
Lil Scrappy has become the latest celebrity to weigh in on Frank Ocean’s sexuality claiming that gay people are helping to spread the deadly AIDS disease.
The Odd Future singer shocked fans when he penned an open letter in which he revealed he fell in love with a man four years ago. Joining the likes of Beyonce, Russell Simmons, Busta Rhymes and Jay-Z, Scrappy has offered his opinions on the first outing in hip-hop and R&B, but his comments were nothing short of controversial.
“It’s crazy just like everything else going on in the world, but at the end of the day, I feel like to each his own. He with it, but I ain’t with it, but at the same time you have a whole gay society and you can’t act like it’s not there,” Scrappy told TMZ in support of Frank.
“He’s cool. I love the music and the music is what really matters. As for the coming out, gay, I’m glad he came out so all the women that love the straight men, we can keep the AIDS situation down, you feel me?”
Clearly not everyone was feeling you Scrappy because TMZ’s founder Harvey asked him to clarify exactly what he meant by the AIDS comment.
“I’m glad that he came out and said he was gay, because we have straight women that love straight men. I’m glad he embraced that so they can embrace it and they won’t be messing with him, you dig?” he explained.
When Harvey asked if he meant gay people were the cause of AIDS, Scrappy replied: “No, it’s a doorway, it’s a doorway for it.”
Harvey asked: “That gay is a gateway to AIDS?” To which Scrappy replied: “Definitely. It’s scientifical. It’s not from my mouth, it’s scientifical.”
Scrappy then went on to claim that many other rappers are also in the closet: “Half the rappers are gay. The real gangsters are gay, but they just ain’t coming out. I’ma tell you, I’m straight I love women.”
Over the weekend, one-hit-wonder rapper Khia slammed Frank for “fooling” women about his sexuality.
It was a bad decision to ask Scrappy for his opinion in the first place! Should he apologise for the AIDS comment? Listen to his mumbled speech below…
