Did You Miss It? Migos Met With Backlash For Slamming ILoveMakonnen For Coming Out As Gay

Published: Thursday 9th Feb 2017 by Rashad

Migos has been on top of the world since the turn of the year.

After laying claim to their first chart-topping single with ‘Bad & Boujee,’ the success of the viral tune helped boost its parent album – ‘Culture’ – to the top of the Billboard 200 (where it can be found this week).  But, as many-an-act can tell you, there’s no high that can’t come to a swift end thanks to a PR disaster.  And, if the recent Twitter response to some controversial comments made by the Atlantan trio is any indication, they could be headed in that negative direction.

That’s right, after Rolling Stone magazine highlighted the rappers’ newfound success, the ‘Fight Night’ emcees took time to weigh in on singer/rapper ILoveMakonnen‘s recent decision to come out the closet:

“Damn Makonnen!” said Quavo, seemingly surprised at the support his “Whip It (Remix)” co-star received. “They supported him?” Offset, another group member, added: “That’s because the world is fucked up.” Takeoff, the third group member, chimed in: “This world is not right.

“We ain’t saying it’s nothing wrong with the gays,” says Quavo. But he suggests that Makonnen’s sexuality undermines his credibility, given the fact that “he first came out talking about trapping and selling Molly, doing all that.”

He frowns. “That’s wack, bro.”

” – Rolling Stone, 2017

Needless to say, this didn’t sit well with many-a-Migos supporter.  Read the response inside and get into the group’s apology for the hoopla:

After the ruckus, Migos took to Twitter to apologize:

    • Quavobaybee February 9, 2017

      What’s wrong with being local? Hip hop isn’t that popular outside of America and Migos has hits for DAYS here. Stay mad!!!

    • Quavobaybee February 9, 2017

      Good for you f**. They have SEVERAL urban hits so stay pressed.

      • Credits February 9, 2017

        Hits don’t mean the music is good.

  4. Drakonce February 9, 2017

    Why is him being gay such a big deal.

    • Pause February 9, 2017

      It’s disgusting that, why.

      • kp & envy ME February 9, 2017

        your mom not aborting you when she had the chance was equally disgusting- still, a big deal was not made….

      • Pause February 9, 2017

        Homosexuality is abhorrent and depraved. Anyone who engages in or in any way supports it is vile, degenerate and non-human. This includes you, apparently. Give me your address and I’ll mail you a razor blade, a pen and a blank note to, you know…

  5. XoMoDe February 9, 2017

    Am I supposed to know who any of these clowns are? This is like reading some foreign language.

    • Credits February 9, 2017

      Lol I know right? I just realized that Migos is three people…I thought quavo was a solo artist? I don’t know…oh and I’ve never heard that song called ‘tuesday’ by that mak guy, I listen to real music.

  6. Cough Cough February 9, 2017

    Their song is dumb, generic and played out. Who cares what these southern bumpkin, hood rats think about the gays.

  7. Jamie February 9, 2017

    Fauk that, who is that last dude in the tweet screenshot “jamzLdn”?

  8. Avi February 9, 2017

    I don’t know ANY of these people…

  9. Jason February 9, 2017

    We ain’t learned to write proper English. We only apologized because we wanna stay popular. We’re from the hood, so we automatically assume there couldn’t be any gays selling drugs. We’re peddling stereotypes. ? ??

  10. Belladonna February 9, 2017

    This is why I don’t f*ck with Trap or Hiphop like that. I really want to like it but BS like this & not to mention the sexism and homophobia. I just Can’t have that type of negativity in my life. #GirlBye

  11. ya February 9, 2017

    its funny people can talk sh” bout blacks all day but some1 doesn’t agree with the gay lifestyle their all of a sudden shunned, esp in the entertainment field. At the end of the day straight ppl get your own stuff like the gays do cause all I see is them tryna blacklist ppl for their opinion not the real bigots who sign their checks every week and yall who buy all them gay racist fashion designers stuff ur continuing your oppression and disenfranchisement because that money you give to them only puts them in better positions to control your destiny.

  12. Lake Erie February 9, 2017

    Wow, do they really feel that it’s impossible for him to be gay and trapping or do they just wish he would have come out before they ever collaborated with him… hmmm? Lol smh…

  13. Mar February 9, 2017

    These kids be stupid AF nowadays. What does any of that have to do with sexuality? Don’t they know some of the hardest dudes taking it up the ass… they know.

    • Pause February 9, 2017

      No real man engages in homosexual activity. Any man “taking it up the ass” never learned to be a man and instead is trying to emulate being a woman.

      • Danzou February 9, 2017

        Ok but what IS being a woman? I’m giving you a fair chance at explaining yourself.

      • RI February 10, 2017

        i could introduce you to a lot of Real Men who are gay, supportave, strong, courageous, etc. u must not be very social

      • Kayleigh April 27, 2017

        You are a disgusting person and a disgrace to the human race! Being gay is not a choice and doesn’t have any effect on a persons worth! Have some respect!

  14. Cbeylive February 9, 2017
