'Atlanta' Star Lakeith Stanfield Is Facing Backlash After Sharing a Homophobic Freestyle [Video]

‘Atlanta’ and ‘Get Out’ star Lakeith Stanfield is facing some serious backlash after dropping an intentionally ‘offensive’ freestyle with homophobic lyrics.

He posted the short freestyle to Instagram with the caption “Offensive freestyle (not for the easily offended)” — so he knew exactly what he was doing.

Lyrics include:

“Boy you’re dressed like trash you a eight six, take that choke chain back, that’s some gay shit.”

“Fag, I don’t really want to brag but I’m straight rich.”

“Fuck them bitches out the ass and I’m famous and all these gay niggas mad cause they hate this.”

Lakeith deleted the clip, but thanks to Twitter user @_BayBey it’s making its way around the internet.

When reached for comment, Lakeith’s publicist responded with the following:

“I believe he commented on this on his own IG: ‘I’m not always in line with the beliefs of my characters.'”

Yikes. Peep just a few of the social media reactions:
