Does working with Frank Ocean clear their name?
When fellow Atlanta MC iLoveMakonnen announced on Twitter that he was gay, there was an outpour of support and love from his fans and the rest of the Twitter community. Once Migos caught wind of this in an interview with Rolling Stone, they made some comments that had people in an uproar.
“That’s wack, bro”
During their interview with Rolling Stone, the interviewer asked them their opinion on the “Tuesday” singer’s announcement. Their surprise and immediate dismissal of his credibility as a rapper stirred up some bad press for the “Bad and Boujee” trio…
After issuing an apology on Twitter immediately after the interview came out, Migos’ Quavo reiterated that it wasn’t an issue he had with gays, it was that iLoveMakonnen was singing about things that weren’t true to himself.
His tweet read: “We always been about being original and staying true. Staying true to yourself goes a long way. We are all fans of Makonnen’s music and we wish he didn’t feel like he ever had to hide himself. We feel the world is f***ed up that people feel like they have to hide and we’re asked to comment on someone’s sexuality. We have no problem with anyone’s sexual preference. We love all people, gay or straight and we apologize if we offended anyone.”
