Thanks to a string of genre-defying British hits, J Hus now stands tall as one of the world’s most impactful musicians…gliding to global glory on the wings of one Gold album and several multi-Platinum tunes.
Today, he finds himself in the middle of an intense debate about the white gay community, its supposed “agenda” and use and abuse of black culture and suffering for social gain.
His controversial thoughts below…
In a series of tweets, the African superstar condemned leaders in the LGBTQ community for imposing their beliefs on those who may be against and for ignoring issues faced by members of the black community.
His remarks were met with praise by some and criticism from others.
1) Black LGBT people exist
2) Many black lgbt people have fought for black liberation – James Baldwin, Angela Davis, Audre Lorde, to name a few
3) No one is forcing queerness on you. Ever been beaten up for being straight? No. But many gay & trans ppl are physically attacked

I see no parts where J Hus was being homophobic or am I buzzing? Lol. The man said be gay live your best life, but how comes we fighting homophobia harder than the racism we as a people have endured for hundred of years? I get his point ??♀️

This is exactly the problem. Black ppl who say they “stand up for their culture” but in reality only stand up for people who are like them. There are black people from all walks of life, LGBT included and most straight black men either don’t care or they choose to ignore LGBT ppl

He issued this statement in response….
Trust me i ain’t homophobic. The more gay men the more women for me. If you want come kill me. I know what I’m saying.

He isn’t the first public figure to argue that the gay community has a problematic relationship with black people.
