It's not the first time he's done this, but it's starting to become a real ugly pattern.
Migos have had issues when it comes to embracing anything involving the LGBTQ community, and that goes from ILoveMakonnnen coming out as gay, and how that "undermined his street credibility," according to XXL. Not to mention the rumors that the team was not comfortable with working on the 'Saturday Night Live' set when Katy Perry brought them on, and even excluded any Drag Queens from the after party, even though they were part of the crew.
Well, the newest thing was the music video for the song "Boss Life," which is a song from YFN Lucci, which Offset appears on. The song, which has been out since December, but just caught more visibility for the video, he says "Pinky ring crystal clear, 40k spent on a private Lear/60k solitaire/I cannot vibe with queers."
Twitter is laying on the backlash for the lyrics, including pointing out that Cardi B's sister is actually a Lesbian, and this cannot be a good thing for either of them, let alone causing some residual backlash saying that this shows where Cardi B stands on gays as well.
Offset saying he doesn't vibe with queers while constantly wearing and PARADING clothes by gay designers is the REAL gag.
I do not vibe with Queers" is such an ugly and unnecessary line. He won't be here for too long, his bars are elementary and he ugly. And I'm going to catch heat for this but the fact that Cardi B is marrying this man shows where she stands too.
unfortunately i will not be supporting or vibing to Tinashe's song that feature Offset. . i will not give my gay coins to support someone who "doesn't vibe with queers" Tinashe sweetie if you release a solo version i'll give you my coins but until then i will not buy the song.
not offset rapping about "i can't vibe with queers" when he's on someone's instagram w/ a louis vuitton purse. like ok sure queen
Of course, Offset is trying to calm down the backlash, and apologizing, but we don't know if we buy it after all the other homophobic thoughts that have surrounded the Migos in the past year alone. Nobody uses this word in this fashion these days, Offset.
I didn't write the line about gay people. I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all 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'm not in a place where I'm hating like that. 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 creepy paparazzi situation. To me that "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. I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I'm offended I offended anybody

Do you think that Offset went too far? Or do you believe he didn't mean it?
Amy Cooper is one with the force and the force is with her.
