Following the tragic shooting at Pulse, a gay nightclub in Orlando, that killed 49 people and is the deadliest mass shooting in United States history, Kid Cudi has spoken out and called upon his hip-hop peers to be more vocal in their support of the LGBT community.
In a series of tweets, Cudi wrote:
My heart and prayers go out to the LGBT community and everyone affected by this tragedy. Really upset today. I wish there was more I could do than tweet, build awareness and donate money. Thats not enough. Not for me. IF YOU ARE AN INSECURE HOMOPHOBE AND HAVE A ISSUE WITH GAYS AND EQUALITY, UNFOLLOW ME NOW. THANK YOU. The Hip Hop community is the least outspoken about gay rights and Ima go out my way to change that.
Following Cudi’s tweets, Ty Dolla $ign showed support, tweeting, “What Cudi said.” Cudi responded, “I fucks with you for this Ty! Mad love fam keep crushin’!” This follows Azealia Banks recently announcing that she is “never saying the word F****T ever again.”
