The Game sparks homophobia Twitter row with Perez Hilton The Game Tickets
Rapper ignores his criticism and says his Tweets are 'just comedy'…
Hilton criticised the rapper for posting "hateful and homophobic" messages on his Twitter account @thegame, but the hip-hop star replied by insisting his posts were "just comedy".
The Game, who last year claimed a number of hip-hop stars were in the closet, published a series of messages including "If you look any other way but straight while you pissin' you got that #FagSwag" and "If you cried when the ship sank in Titanic... You got that #FagSwag".
Hilton responded by posting:
@thegame It's disheartening to see hateful and homophobic messages like the ones you've been Tweeting. #AspireToGreatness!
The Game insisted that Hilton had blown the argument out of proportion, however, replying: "@PerezHilton this is comedy.... Stop gettin ya panties all inna bunch... That's #FagSwa."
The row comes shortly after A$AP Rocky spoke out over the issue of homophobia in hip-hop and claimed that the genre will "fail" unless artist become more open-minded about sexuality. The rapper - real name Rakim Mayers - said that while pop "doesn't discriminate against people", hip-hop is "so retarded" when it comes to issues of sexuality and homophobia.
