A teenager from Texas was kicked out of his home after his mum found out he was gay, and everybody is loving this rapper’s response.
17-year-old Christian took to twitter to talk after his mum kicked him out of home.
The teen, from San Antonio, sent a tweet to his favourite musician Chicago rapper CupcakKe, to let her know that her music was helping him pull through the tough time.
“I’m homeless my mom just booted me from the house :( yr music is helping me pull through queen… going thru some tough shit,” he wrote.
“I was shaking and crying, it was so cold,” Christian told BuzzFeed News.
The teen explained that he put CupcakKe’s music on to help himself cheer up, but then the musician immediately got back to the teen to ask if he had a place to stay.
Christian did not have a place, and told the musician that he was struggling to find somewhere to stay.
“I was honestly shocked when she responded asking me if I needed a hotel. I really did need a shelter badly,” he said.
The musician sent extra messages to the teen to check that he had somewhere safe to stay for the night and offered to pay for a hotel.
“She’s the one who helped me stop crying during the scariest night of my life,” Christian said.

Christian ended up staying at a friends house, and went home the following day to fix things with his mother in the morning.
The rapper said that reaching out to the teen wasn’t a difficult decision, as she had been homeless at 13.
“The first thing that came to my mind was not that ‘this is a fan’, but this is someone who is in need,” she said. “Someone that’s about to be homeless just like I was at 13 years old.”
“So my first reaction was to get them a hotel for the night, for the week, or even if I had to pay for a month — I was ready to do it,” she explained.
Christian is now at home again and working through the instance with his mother.
“I can tell she’s frustrated but I think she does feel bad. Will she come around? Only time will tell I guess.”
CupcakKe’s response to the teen saw fans across twitter send an outpouring of love and respect, with many praising the 19-year-old for her selfless support.
“The LGBT community is human and every human being deserves love and that’s what I’m here to spread at the end of the day,” she said.
