The rapper made the transphobic comments on radio show The Breakfast Club
Waka Flocka Flame has said that Caitlyn Jenner is guilty of ‘rebuking god’.
Speaking earlier today (September 18) on New York radio show The Breakfast Club, the Atlanta rapper suggested Caitlyn Jenner was ‘marketing evil’ by having transitioned publicly, saying, ‘putting it on TV, that’s crazy.’
He referred to Jenner as Bruce, the name she used before her transition, and suggested that transgender people were experiencing ‘a test from god’ or ‘the devil playing tricks on your mind.’
When asked to elaborate on his point of view he spoke at length. ‘People are marketing the wrong things’, he said.
‘They don’t market families and husbands and wives any more. They’re marketing young girls, transgenders, they’re marketing evil. Evil is marketed. I ain’t got nothing against anybody’s preferences, but putting it on TV, that’s crazy, man. Kids is the only people watching TV.’
He continued, ‘I ain’t saying nothing against like Bruce Jenner, you follow me, you are who you are when god made you, not who you became after he did. That’s how I just feel. You rebuking god, man. God ain’t put them feelings in you, man, that’s the devil playing tricks on your mind. That’s a test from god.’

Earlier this year Waka Flocka Flame announced that he was running for President of the United States on the promise of immediately legalising marijuana, raising the minimum wage to $15, and imposing harsh restrictions on people with big feet.
“They have to take trains, cabs, and buses,” Flocka told Rolling Stone. “I don’t wanna see your big ass feet taking up all the space on the concrete.”
The tongue-in-cheek announcement was made on April 20 and came over two years after the ‘Hard in the Paint’ performer tweeted the assertion: “I’m dead ass running for president in 2016”. He also revealed that DJ Whoo Kid will be on the ticket as the potential next Vice President.
