Hey, I’m going to say some really awful sh*t, and then I’m going to hop on Twitter and say that’s not what I meant and it’s going to be okay!
That’s basically Travi$ Scott’s mentality, after footage from a March show surfaced on social media over the weekend, where the Rodeo rapper is yelling at some boring folks in the crowd, calling them f*ggots and queers for not turning up to his liking. (This is basically exactly what just happened to Post Malone, sub offending the gay community for the black community.)
Following the backlash, Travi$ took to Twitter with the following:
“AT MY SHOWS I GET A LIL TURNT UP. SORRY FOR THAT BUT NEVER WILL I EVER DISRESPECT THAT COMMUNITY. THANKS BEING SAID MY APOLOGIES TO ANYONE THATS OFFENDED. MY WORDS WERENT OUT OF BAD MEANING AND IN NO DISRESPECT. BEFORE U JUMP ON MY BACK I HAVE NOTHING BUT RESPECT FOR LGBT COMMUNITY. DONT TAKE MY WORDS OUT OF CONTEXT. TRAVIS ISNT HOMOPHOBIC WHATSOEVER SO DONT THINK OF THROWING ME IN THAT CATEGORY. I DONT WANT U TO THINK OF ME AS A SPAZZ. THOUGH WHEN I GET EXCITED I TEND TO SAY THE FIRST THING ON MY MIND OUT LOUD. IVE BEEN WORKING ON THAT AS A PERSON TAKES TIME BUT WE ALL AINT PERFECT.”
Since he wrote in all caps and spoke in third person at times, he obviously means business, amiright?
All jokes aside, I do come from the school of thought that one can use hateful words associated with racism and homophobia without actually being racist or homophobic….just stupid. Your thoughts?
P.S. Don’t ever mistake Trav for A$AP Rocky. That’s really not his cup of tea.
