Cardi B defends fiance Offset over homophobic lyric controversy

Cardi B defends fiance Offset over homophobic lyric controversy

Migos rapper Offset was recently the recipient of massive criticism for rapping a line which was considered homophobic and insulting to the LGBT community. He immediately apologized, explaining that wasn't his intention and now, Cardi B has jumped into the fray to defend her man.
Offset rapped, "I cannot vibe with queers," in his verse on YFN Lucci’s song "Boss Life." But following the callout, he shared a screenshot of the dictionary definition of "queer" and explained he wasn’t using the word as a homophobic slur. But his apology wasn't accepted by the LGBT community.
Cardi B took to Periscope to defend her fiancĂ©, saying: "I’m not going to let somebody call him ‘homophobic’ when I know that he’s not. And I’m saying this because I seen him around these ... around gays, and he treats them with the same respect he treats everybody. He never acts uncomfortable and he just don’t care."
Cardi said that she asked Offset about the lyric when people began calling him out on social media, and he said that he didn’t know that the word had homophobic implications.
She added: "It has a different vocabulary on the dictionary. Now, that’s a word that you guys say that it’s a bad word for gays -- I never even heard that word in the first place. Why don’t y’all educate people about it? A lot of people are not aware about what’s wrong or right in the LGBT community. Why don’t we do things to educate instead of bashing and trying to label something that they not?"
