Waka Flocka Flame clarifies Caitlyn Jenner remarks

He's sorry... sort of

Waka Flocka Flame has moved to clarify his earlier comments about Caitlyn Jenner through social media, after being widely criticized for transphobia earlier this week.

Speaking to ‘The Breakfast Club’ radio show, Waka made the following comments on Jenner:

“They don’t market families and husbands and wives anymore. 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.”

Taking to his Twitter account, where debate has raged for several days, Waka expanded on his Breakfast Club statements:

“I’m not homophobic. I have nothing against the gay community. I’m still standing on what I said. I’m not a fan of transgenders marketed like a superhero. And yes, I was wrong for using the word evil. I apologise for that, and every person I offended.”

“I have nothing against transgender people. I simply feel we have to be careful what our children see as ‘sensationalized’. Children’s brains are in constant development until adulthood. And they pay attention to everything, whether we want to accept it or not. I’m a father now, so I look at life a lot differently.”

Waka Flocka also added a dig at the media, saying: “understand a technique by the press called ‘bait and click’. Ads make money and all these sites have ads.”
