Wiz Khalifa has been roundly mocked after he appeared to suggest that straight men shouldn’t eat bananas.
The ‘Black & Yellow’ star made the bizarre claim during an interview with The Breakfast Club, claiming that men should break the fruit in two before eating it.
“If you bite a banana, you sus. N***** gotta break the banana in half”, he claimed.
Unsurprisingly, it wasn’t long before the claim was widely derided online.
“Wiz Khalifa said in an interview that it’s gay for men to eat bananas. … can you imagine your masculinity being THAT fragile? C’mon Wiz”, one Twitter user wrote.

Another said: “Ok @wizkhalifa if straight men can’t eat bananas then they also can’t enjoy popsicles, eat off of spoons or forks. Also no hotdogs, corn dogs, ya can’t lick ya fingers off anymore either. Being homophobic sounds like a lot of work to me.”
In 2016, Wiz told NME all about his renowned love for marijuana – and how he’s high most of the time.
“I stay medicated. All day, every day, that’s the goal,” he said.
“Creatively I need to be at my most innocent and carefree. Where I can be sensitive to my environment.
“I can accept colours and sounds and turn them into words. When I’m in situations like this, where there’s a lot going on, I still have to come up with a lot of ideas.”
