Gay rights campaigners condemn Trick Trick's comments
Rapper Trick Trick – a long-term collaborator of Eminem – has said he doesn’t want any homosexuals buying his new album ‘The Villian’.
The MC’s lyrics are often perceived as homophobic and now he has revealed he feels society’s growing acceptance of homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle is wrong.
Speaking to Allhiphop.com
he declared: “I’ma go on the record right now with this. Homosexuals are probably not gonna like this album.”
Trick Trick added: “I don’t want your faggot money any goddamn way. I don’t like it [homosexuality]. Carry that shit somewhere else.”
The tirade didn’t end there though and he continued saying he believes homosexuality is wrong.
“It’s just that every time that you turn on the TV, that sissy shit is on, and they act like it’s fucking okay,” he said. “The world is changing for the worst when shit like that happens. And I address that issue. I address it hard as hell.”
However Ben Summerskill, chief executive Of Stonewall, a gay equality organisation, told NME.COM: “It’s only three months since an 18-year old, Michael Causer, was murdered in a homophobic attack in Liverpool.
“This is exactly the sort of sentiment that inspired his killer. Thankfully, once the new offence of incitement to homophobic hatred is enacted, anyone who sells or distributes this sort of material will be subject to prosecution.”
