Lil Mama says while she supports LGBTQ rights, something needs to be done to stop “anti-LGBTQ bullying.” So she’s starting a “heterosexual rights movement,” she says.
The 31-year-old rapper and TV personality says members of the LGBTQ community have become so accepted in recent years that the tides have turned on straight people.
The announcement comes one week after Lil Mama came under fire for reposting a tweet that claimed trans children — like Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union’s daughter Zaya — are “too young” to recognize their own gender identity.
Is this just a ploy to get press? Do you believe heterosexual people are victims of discrimination?
Lil Mama is looking to start a “heterosexual rights movement.”
The 31-year-old entertainer made the announcement earlier this week amid mounting backlash over a series of transphobic comments. Lil Mama explained the movement was necessary to protect herself, and other heterosexuals, from being bullied by the LGBTQ+ community.
“Y’all fight so hard to be respected and SOME of you, NOT ALL, get a kick out bullying people for having an option, how they dress, how their hair and or makeup looks, how much money they have, etc,” she wrote in an Instagram story. “There are so many people afraid to give their honest opinion (sic) because if they do the LGBTQ+ will hear what they want to hear and take statements out of context. I don’t have to prove myself by reminding people that I have loved ones of the LGBTQ+ Community. When I speak I’m not trying to hurt anyone, I’m just speaking my truth, just like you all.”
