Yung Miami of the rap duo City Girls wants people to know that she doesn’t have a problem with gay people, despite saying that she would beat her son if he’s gay.
You see, she has a gay hairdresser, and that makes it all OK.
In 2013, she tweeted that she would beat her son if he turned out to be gay.
Earlier this year, the tweet resurfaced after City Girls started getting more attention. She issued a kinda-sorta apology to people “who were offended by that.”
In a not-at-all shocking turn of events, it turns out that Miami didn’t mean it.
Earlier this week, she was on a radio show and was asked about the tweet.
“I didn’t tweet nothing about [LGBTQ people],” she said. “I was just talking about my son. I just said that if I saw anything gay in my son, that I would beat him.”
She stressed that she didn’t mean that she would actually beat her son – it was just a way to express how angry she would be if he were gay… because that makes it OK?
“But that’s just like when your mama tells you, ‘If you break my table I’m gonna beat the shit out of you,’” she said. “That don’t mean she’s gonna beat the shit out of you, she’s just saying it.”
And, just like Sarah Palin, Dr. Laura, and every other homophobic public figure, she has gay friends… well, a cousin and a stylist.
“I’m around a lot of gay people all of the time; my stylist is gay, my cousin is gay.”
Her apology also referred to Haitians, because in 2011 she said that they are “black ugly and cheesy.”
