Snoop Lion Makes A Stupid Offensive Comment About Gay Rappers

Snoop Lion AKA Snoop Dogg can join Jeremy Irons in the despicable Anti-Gay Club For Jerks. When The Guardian asked Mr. Lion-Dogg what he thought of Frank Oceans’ coming out as a sign of progress in accepting homosexuality in the rap world, Mr. Lion said,

Frank Ocean ain’t no rapper. He’s a singer. It’s acceptable in the singing world, but in the rap world I don’t know if it will ever be acceptable because rap is so masculine.

It’s like a football team. You can’t be in a locker room full of motherfucking tough-ass dudes, then all of a sudden say, ‘Hey, man, I like you.’ You know, that’s going to be tough.

Oh my God. These are the exact stereotypes that keep gay rappers/football players/anyone in the closet and halt any kind of progress. What is so insane about the idea that someone can be both gay and masculine? Snoop, come on! You’ve probably met lots of masculine men who were gay and you didn’t even know it.

And the second part, the locker room analogy — I don’t even know where to begin. Again, it perpetuates the fear some straight men have that all gay men just want to hit on all straight men. Just because you have a group of men changing in a locker room and one or some of them are gay, does not mean that they are going to suddenly develop huge crushes on all of the straight men and make everyone uncomfortable. Changing in a locker room isn’t even a sexual thing! You’re the one who’s sexualizing it, Mr. Snoop Lion. You’re the one who’s bringing that into the equation.

Of course then he uses the classic, “I don’t hate gay people, I have gay friends” tactic:

I don’t have a problem with gay people. I got some gay homies. Yeah, for real. People who were gay used to get beat up. It was cool to beat up on gay people back then. But in the 90s and 2000s, gay is a way of life. Just regular people with jobs. Now they are accepted, not classified. They just went through the same things we went through as black.

You’re still beating up on gay people; now you’re just doing it with your words and your attitude. If you think they’re “accepted” then why the hell can’t they be rappers?

You can listen to Snoop Lion’s new song he did with Miley Cyrus here. It’s pretty masculine.

  • It’s hard to feel sorry for gay people now that EVERYONE ALWAYS just HAS to defend them over the SLIGHTEST things. I’m sorry but get the fuck over it. There are real problems in the world and everyone is either focusing on rape culture or gay marriage. White people just love any opportunity to victimize themselves and bitch. Privileged morons. Way to keep yourselves distracted while the world crumbles.

    • I’m sorry…let me just clarify something. Do you think that somebody being RAPED or getting the shit BEATEN OUT OF THEM because they’re gay AREN’T real problems? What is a real problem then?

      • Those are problems that all kinds of people face, not just gays, and most people are focusing solely on these issues instead of more important ones. It’s about priority. No one is saying gay people don’t face real problems.

  • Totally agree! I am so sick of feeling like I have to defend people who are victimized because of who they are. Right? It’s, like, so hard dealing with my own privilege.
    All right, what real problems should people be worried about? Please, enlighten!!

    • You realize the US is turning into a dictatorship, right? If you don’t know what issues you should be worried about, you’re a lost cause. I recommend watching Democracy Now! or even CBC news every once in a while.

  • These comments have set back progressiveness in America at least 20 years. Wow, you guys. “No such thing as a masculine gay guy…” — ever hear of the down-low culture? Which part of “crumbling world” will be saved by making sure two lesbians can’t get married? SMH

    • No one is saying they shouldn’t be able to get married. Personally I think ALL marriages should be civil unions, but that’s just me. Let them get married so they can shut up and we can start focusing on real issues. The whole thing is a big convenient distraction. Obama just passed the Monsanto Protection Act without a word from any media source while everyone debated gay marriage. Do you not see the issue here?

      • Correction: Obama didn’t pass the act. The ENTIRE GOVERNMENT passed it. Stop blaming that man for every lowdown dirty trick congress plays. Stop being a sucker. That provision was slipped into an unrelated bill, and the senators who are responsible for READING what they vote on DID NOT. Did you not attend grade-school, where we are taught the basics of how our government works? The president is not a king. Oh yeah, and shame on Snoop for being honest. I’m a liberal, but this is even starting to annoy me.

  • Today on this website it’s offensive for Snoop to say gays can’t be rappers but the other day on this same website it was ok for Busta Rhymes to call a guy a fa**ot.

    • a fa**ot is a shrewish woman, you cannot be in a male on male gay relationship and be a girl, you would be hetero. shows how stupid busta is

  • Did all of TMZ’s commenters suddenly migrate to EBG for the spring…? Where are all these assholes coming from?

  • If people spent as much time to the stare of the nation and the fact that all this money and energy used to fund gay protests. There would be a lot of much needed programs funded. No one rallies when a child is born with birth defects.
    Don’t they realize that the seed was not destroyed in Sodom . This was an isolated incident and the Bible is like a history if read it will shows there is nothing new under the sun. And the other fact is that most sex related crimes are not done by gays.Its the straight persons we have to be aware of.

  • really, there s allready gay s in the locker room and in rap, has been for years. some pple are not as open so keep things to the selves, and by the way you have no reason whatsoever to talk about anything, considering all the drugs you take has caused schizophrenia, and you now think your the reincarnation of a dead guy, go see a shrink loser.

  • honestly, people should have a right to their opinion we don’t have to like every act or behaviour, damn. I am sick and tired of this,.. forcing people to accept other sexuality down our throat is too much. I don’t force my sexuality on them. if their mother and father didn’t have straight sex would they be born to even force us to accept them. I will tolerate it don’t force me to embrace it.. you tell them Snoop lion/dog

  • Teach your daughters eating Vagina is bad.Teach your sons sucking wee wee’s is really BAD. Is that allowed under your all consuming liberal agenda? You others backwards when your the one wanting to take us all the back to ancient Greece

  • Realist is the man called “SNOOP LION”. I can’t imagine bumping a fellow man like Me.. I’d luv 2 think dat all Gay people are sick and are suffering from low esteem and inferiority complex. A Guy cannot muster up d courage 2 ask a girl out but suddenly allws himself 2 b 4ked 2ru d ASS!!! Datz insane……
    LESBIANS……… Insanely 4ked up, U have a Gay frend and yet U end up using Dildos and Vibrators? Who the hell r U trying to fool?
    U need Man inside of U… Guyz need 2 get some P…y TOO!

  • Snoop is a honest mutha fucka he really does have gay friends. He even wears the Adidas winged shoes by the famous gay designer Jermey some shit. But regardless no real rapper will fully except a gay rapper into there cipher. Nothing against men who suck cock and sit on em. Just keeoing it real. Go ahead Lion do yo thang. I know you personally and I know your the truth! Fuck this bitch Catherine St ives who wrote this shit.
