Frank Ocean’s father is suing his son for defamation after the openly gay musician accused his father of using the word “faggot.”
I heard the gunman feigned dead among all the people he killed. I heard the news say he was one of us. I was six years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a faggot as he dragged me out a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty. That was the last afternoon I saw my father and the first time I heard that word, I think, although it wouldn’t shock me if it wasn’t.
Cooksey says the story isn’t true and is damaging his career opportunities. He’s asking for $14.5 million in damages.
