Hours later Tyler responded with the comment: “hahaha you a crazy n**** man,” but neither confirmed nor denied the claims.
This comes after Tyler has faced heavy criticism for his use of homophobic slurs in his music, yet lyrics on his 2017 album Flower Boy suggest that he might identify as gay, bi or pansexual – he may have an interest in men, basically.
In ‘I Ain’t Got Time’, he raps: “Next line will have ’em like, “Whoa” / I’ve been kissing white boys since 2004.
Then during an interview in 2015 with Rolling Stone, Tyler said that he would “100% go gay for ’96 Leo,” and he once posted a picture of the actor from his role in Romeo and Juliet with the words “yes boyfriend yes.”
Not only that (yep, there’s more), the rapper also tweeted out that he had previously tried to come out but everyone ignored him.
I TRIED TO COME OUT THE DAMN CLOSET LIKE FOUR DAYS AGO AND NO ONE CARED HAHAHHAHAHA
