‘Zoom’ rapper Boosie Badazz is no stranger to zooming to the top of Twitter’s trending tally for problematic statements about women, the LGBTQ+ community, and more.
In the past, he’s faced backlash for slamming modern day cartoons for ‘making kids gay,’ openly criticizing basketball star Dwyane Wade for ‘allowing’ his daughter, Zaya, to come out as transgender, and so much more.
Now, he’s ruffling feathers again – this time in defense of his ‘Period‘ co-star DaBaby. Look inside to see what he’s said that has people up-in-arms.

As has been extensively reported, DaBaby has been dominating news cycles since Sunday (July 25) for slamming ‘men who suck d*ck in parking lots’ and people living with HIV during a live performance at the Rolling Loud concert festival.
In addition to the droves of social media commenters who have taken to social media to reprimand his insensivitity, fellow celebrities – like Dua Lipa and Elton John – have also publicly chastised the GRAMMY nominee for his controversial stance.
Yet, despite the hundreds of thousands of tweets targeted at the 29-year-old, some are stepping up in his defense. Not long after T.I. earned a thumbs down for claiming DaBaby’s homophobic remarks were him ‘living in his truth’ (as we reported here), Boosie has stepped up to do the same. Also like T.I., Boosie has unexpectedly dragged GRAMMY-winning, openly gay singer-rapper Lil Nas X into the equation.
“Lil Nas X said he wanna perform naked on stage for charity. You don’t fuck with him like you fuck with DaBaby,” he stated in the video seen above. “Be even-sided. You don’t feel that’s disrespect? Going dance naked. You don’t think that’s disrespect in front of boys who tryna be straight? It’s totally disrespect.”
That’s not all he said.
“If I’m at an awards and he go up there naked, I’m gonna drag his ass off stage and beat his ass,” he continued, speaking hypothetically. “You let a n***a dance naked in front your children, you a mothafuckin’ crazy mothafucka. Or you like dick, too.”
As of time reported, LNX has not responded to the Badazz commentary.
