Rapper Yung Miami Defends Anti-Gay Tweets

"I just said that if I saw anything gay in my son, I would beat him."

You’d be hard-pressed to find a celebrity with an active social media presence who hasn’t slipped up and said something controversial and regrettable at some point. 

Yung Miami, the non-jailed half of the rap duo City Girls, found this out the hard way in August of this year when several of her old tweets resurfaced, including one about not wanting her son to be gay.

After getting angry that people dug up her old tweets, Yung Miami ultimately issued an apology that seemed like maybe she understood why it was maybe not the best idea to talk about wanting to beat the gay out of a child.

Turns out she didn’t.

On Tuesday, Miami went on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club and spoke with host Charlamagne Tha God about her comments.

"I didn’t tweet nothing about them," she insisted, referring to the LGBTQ community. "I was just talking about my son. I just said that if I saw anything gay in my son, that I would beat him."

Oh! Is that all?

She continued: "I don’t have nothing against gay people, but I wouldn’t want my son to be gay...I’m around a lot of gay people all the time. My stylist is gay, my cousin is gay, I love gay people."

Riiiiiight.

Watch the full interview below, or skip to 24:30 to let your jaw drop at her clueless comments. And sorry, Yung Miami, but they're definitely homophobic.
