Per XXL magazine, Boosie BadAzz won’t be mistaken for having progressive views when it comes to homosexuality. In a new interview with DJ Vlad, the Baton Rouge rapper criticized the increased presence of gay characters on television. Boosie claims that the television industry is forcing children to be gay by promoting such content. He also argued that it is being done as a money making scheme.
“They tryna make everybody fucking gay,” Boosie said. “They putting it on our culture. They’re putting it everywhere. Gay stuff is everywhere. I think that they’re just trying to do it to make a monetary gain. They’re not doing it for the gays. They’re not really fans of the gays. They’re doing it for monetary gain, man. They try to make money off these people, man. You got cartoons that have gays. On Cartoons! These are kids. Let kids make their own decision if they wanna go that way. [A] six and seven year old, five year old shouldn’t be turned onto gay cartoon when their mind not even developed yet. What if they like how that cartoon talk? Now, you’re forcing them to be gay. Every TV show is gays. They’re kissing each other. It’s out of hand.”
Boosie stated that he does not hate gays, but feels like homosexuality is being forced on kids. The rapper asserted that things were drastically different from when he went into jail in 2009.
“I don’t hate gay people at all,” he said. “I know plenty gay people. But don’t force it on ’em to be gay. Don’t do that. I just feel like that’s wrong. I came home and was like, ‘What the fuck is going on?’ I was like, ‘What the fuck is going on?’ It was out of hand, man.”
DJ Vlad asked Boosie how he would react if he found out that his son was gay. The Louisiana native said that he would “slap his ass back straight.” Boosie then conceded that if his son was gay, he would not ban the child from his life. The Atlantic Records artist said he would find a way to deal with it.
