Nipsey Hussle is at the center of some backlash on social media after sending out a controversial Instagram post.
It looks like Nipsey Hussle is in the midst of some social media drama. On Monday morning, the Crenshaw rapper took to his Instagram to share his thoughts on Black masculinity, sharing a photo of several men and young boys looking dapper in tuxedos. While at first glance the photo appears to be a prime example of Black excellence, Nipsey’s caption has sparked quite the outrage from people.
"Demonstration speaks louder than Conversation," Nip captioned the post. "They gone feed us every image of our men and boys but this one. No hyper violent...No homo sexual...No abandoners....JUS STRONG BLAC MEN AND YOUNG Men. RESPECT TO MY BIG HOMIE @bigu1 for Leading with love and intelligence. GOD IS WITH US WHO CAN GO AGAINST US 💪🏾."
It happens to be the latter half of his statement that has stirred up the backlash among people on social media, with many feeling it was an anti-gay sentiment. However, Nipsey has since jumped on Twitter and defended his comments, while say he's not backing down.
