Waka Flocka Flame Says Gay People Giving Him “Too Many” Compliments Is Disrespectful
Waka Flocka Flame makes a comment that lands him in a bit of hot water.
During his Instagram Live session earlier this week and ripped and posted online around July 1, Waka spoke on a recent encounter where a gay person approached him overzealously while he was in an airport. While he says he doesn't have any issues with people being interested in men, he doesn't appreciate a man approaching him in such an apparently flirtatious way.
"I understand yall folks got y'all month and all that," Waka Flocka said on his IG Live. "Nothing against nobody's sexual preference, nothing. But look, I ain't with that. So don't approach me, don't be having too many compliments and doing all that extra shit. It's out of pocket and disrespectful."
In another part of the video, Waka aims his camera at a man sitting next to him. The man utters what appear to be some lyrics threatening to shoot someone, and some people believe Waka is saying he'll have any gay man who attempts to flirt with him shot.
Predictably, Waka's comments led to some backlash over the last few days, with some people labeling him a homophobe. "I’m so disappointed in my baby daddy waka I always knew he was homophobic by the the way he treat Brandon ♂️ it’s disgusting .... he still fine af tho," wrote one person.
Meanwhile, others have suggested that he was entitled to make such comments because it's just a matter of preference. "Waka Flocka didn't say he didn't want gay people near him or even around him he just simply does not really want a compliment or anything flirtatious of that nature," another person tweeted. "I mean that's pretty much any other heterosexual guy he just said what some male celebrities want to say but can't."
