Rapper accuses Caitlyn Jenner of ‘marketing evil’
Waka Flocka Flame made a series of transphobic comments on a New York radio station on Friday.
The rapper told ‘The Breakfast Club’ that Caitlyn Jenner’s transition was an: “Affront to God.”
He went on to accuse “transgenders” of “marketing evil, man.”
Flame continued to wax lyrical about the danger of non-traditional family units, accusing men and women of forgetting their gender roles as “husbands and wives”.
“Women are afraid to be a wife and young males is afraid to be men.” he said.
“It’s like, it’s not cool, they’re not marketing that. They don’t market families and husbands and wives no more.
“They marketing young girls, you know what I’m saying?” he said, as it became increasingly clear that few around him did.
“Transgenders — they’re marketing evil, man,” he said, before accusing the trans community of doing the “devil’s work” and as a test that society needed to “outbeat [sic]”.
“You are who you are when God made you, not who you became after he did.
“That’s how I just feel. You rebuking God, man.
“God didn’t put them feelings in you, man, that’s the Devil playing tricks on your mind,” he added.
“That’s a test from God. If you can’t outbeat [sic] that one task and you believe that, then you’re going to believe everything else.”
However, Mr Flame didn’t reserve is hate fuelled philosophising for trans people alone – he also criticised the African American community, insisting that they need “get over slavery”.
This is not the first – and we have sneaking suspicion it won’t be the last – time that Jenner has faced bigotry from rap musicians.
Hip hop superstar Eminem attacked her recently in a transphobic freestyle rap – during which he called her both “Bruce” and a “bitch”.
In July, the lesser known rapper Lil Scrappy complained about both Jenner and the support she has received since coming out as transgender – claiming her transition was a “racist situation”.
He’s obviously never heard of Laverne Cox…
