“I feel really bad for yall man. Its sad out here. Man cant even smile and be happy no more. Smh.” He went on to give specific examples of the hate in a follow up post. “Its like ‘oh he smiling TOO hard!! He DEF sucks a d*ck!’ Its like word?? Thats what we on now?? Homophobic and sad and will be miserable their whole lives.” Some of his fans responded to him and showed empathy. “Its more the ignorence, Im not insulted. Its just sad to see people so lame, its sad someone, a man, cant show joy without there being some conversation about their sexually.” he added.
