Cardi B Defends Her Fiancé Offset Over Homophobic Lyric Controversy

She wants us to bash each other less and educate more.

Cardi B’s fiancé Offset was facing some serious scrutiny last week after his feature on the song “Boss Life” by YFN Lucci included the lyric, “Pinky ring crystal clear, 40k spent on a private Lear/60k solitaire/I cannot vibe with queers.” Many were accusing the rapper of being homophobic for saying that he could not “vibe with queers,” which landed him in hot water on Twitter.

The Migos rapper spoke out on Instagram, saying that he wasn’t talking about gay people when he used the term “queer.” Alongside the definition, the rapper said that he was using the word because it fit into the rhyme scheme and also because it describes, “…lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd.”

I didn’t write the line about gay people. 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. 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. 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
