Boosie Badazz Sparks Outrage After Doubling Down on Homophobic Lil Nas X Comments

Boosie Badazz has been hit with criticism across social media, after he doubled down on homophobic comments he made about fellow rapper Lil Nas X.

Boosie, real name Torrence Hatch Jr., had previously stated during an Instagram Live session that he would "drag his a** offstage and beat his a**" if he saw Lil Nas X perform naked at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, per Billboard.

"Wipe Me Down" rapper Boosie made the comments in reaction to Lil Nas X's July tweet that he and Jack Harlow would perform their track "Industry Baby" nude at the awards ceremony "for charity."

And during an appearance on The Breakfast Club, Boosie insisted that he hadn't gone too far with his rhetoric as he defended his stance—and accused openly gay rapper Lil Nas X of being a bad influence on children.

When quizzed about his comments by co-host Angela Yee, Boosie said: "I just be feeling sometimes I gotta speak up, because as far as straight people in the world you don't have an opinion on homosexuality—everything is harm. If you say anything—'I'm straight, I like women'—it's vulgar to, you..."

Yee, Charlamagne tha God and their co-host DJ Envy immediately jumped in to disagree with Boosie's assessment, leading the rapper to hit back: "You can't brag on really smashing or your sexuality no more. It's ran by LGBTQ [people]."

After defending DaBaby, who has faced backlash for making homophobic comments earlier this summer, Boosie went on to say: "I feel they're attacking our children. You make everybody support this, who loves these rappers? The kids!"

"If you make every rapper go with it, you grab that generation," he went on. "I know I loved every rapper when I was little.... I tried to copy what they did, you know what I'm saying? It's a new day now and I think they're pushing it on our younger generation."

Charlemagne challenged Boosie on this stance, stating that rappers have long been putting out material that could negatively influence children, "talking about murder, celebrating drug culture, gang culture, violence against women."

The way the rap industry upholds homophobia is so anti-Black. Boosie is garbage as is platforming him. https://t.co/yvF9RazlOS

Boosie then said of Lil Nas X: "I really [got] offended when he was saying that he would go up there and perform naked and all this s***. I was like, 'Damn, all these straight people in the world, all these millions of kids are gonna watch this and no straight rapper ain't gonna [object?]'"

He added: "If you've got your kids watching TV, if you're trying to raise strong young Black men, would you be cool with your kids sitting there watching it? Would you be cool [with your children] sitting there and watching Nas X go up there and take his clothes off? If you do, Charlemagne, you're part of the problem."

Charlemagne responded by saying that he wouldn't want his children consuming any content with sexual themes under a certain age, no matter the sexuality portrayed.

When the interview was posted on Twitter on Monday, Lil Nas X, real name Montero Lamar Hill, responded: "wow.... this is insane. almost as insane as my new single 'industry baby' which is out now! 🔥☄️"

The star added in follow-up tweet hours later: "the s*** y'all say about me would drive me crazy if i didn't already love myself."

A host of other Twitter users also spoke out against Boosie's comments, including author Frederick Joseph, who wrote: "The way the rap industry upholds homophobia is so anti-Black. Boosie is garbage as is platforming him."
