Offset Issues Multiple Apologies After Backlash Over ‘Queer’ Rap Lyrics
Offset has issued multiple apologies after he was labeled homophobic for rapping, “I don’t vibe with queers.” Get the scoop and see what he had to say.
Offset has issued multiple apologies after receiving backlash over his lyrics in “Boss Life.”
Many are calling the Migos representer homophobic after he rapped, “I cannot vibe with queers,” on the YNF Lucci single.
What we're not going to do is pretend like when #Offset said " I do not vibe with Queers" that he meant for queer to mean strange or weird. We are not dumb, and y'all are not stupid or oblivious. Just say you don't care about his homophobic comments and go.

Offset issued multiple apologies and at one point, he even posted the definition of “queer” to support the notion that he wasn’t addressing gays he was talking about people who are “strange” or “odd.”
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
The problem with the Exhibit A is Offset didn’t post the full definition. He only posted the part that supported his argument.
