Migos Rapper Offset Says Sorry For Homophobic Lyrics




Migos rapper Offset issued a lengthy apology for using a homophobic slur in his new song “Boss Life” with YFN Lucci.

The song was released last month and the video for the single was premiered earlier this week and since then Offset has come under fire for one line in his verse. “I cannot vibe with queers (hun hun), I got the heart of a bear (huh),” the Atlanta MC raps. Folks on Twitter attacked him mercilessly calling him homophobic among other things.

Offset has since come to his own defense by issuing an apology on Instagram while letting everyone know that he wasn’t referring to gay individuals when he used the word queer in his lyrics. “I didn’t write the line about gay people,” he wrote. “I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that.

Offset posted a screenshot of the meaning of the word taken from Google. “When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation,” he added. “To me that “queer” I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd. I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I’m offended I offended anybody.”

Offset also spoke to his fans on IG Live where he further explains his stance on the issue and responded to the backlash.
