Rapper-turned-Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta star Lil Scrappy does NOT see it for the transgender community.
In an interview with VLAD, he says that the welcoming response to Caitlyn Jenner’s transition is ‘a racist situation’ because according to Scrappy:
“If a black man was to do that? Come on man! Ain’t no money bitch! — you’s ruined. You is ruined! Can’t no black man stand up and say — ‘My whole life I felt like a woman, but I was holding it down for my lil — my kids and my bitch.’ — If we say that, we gon’ get assassinated, bruh.’
Clearly he’s never seen Laverne Cox — but we digress.
As if that weren’t enough, he went on to say that he has an issue with transgender individuals and wants kids to know:
“Stick to what you were made to be. If you got a penis, be a penis. Be a man. Women, if you were made with a p*ssy, rock your p*ssy cause can’t nobody rock it like you.”
Despite Scrappy’s ignorant views on the “transsexuals,” he says he has no problem with gay people.
“But I ain’t saying nothing about gay people though. Whatever you is, that’s yo sh*t. I just have a problem with people when they hide it and a man who change their whole thing. Now, all these young boys looking at that and they wearing dresses and stuff. I don’t want lil kids to be on that sh*t”
Those are some pretty damaging words, but at the end of the day — who really listens to what Lil Scrappy has to say? You can watch the entire interview below.
