The Internet is Calling Out Offset from Migos for Homophobic Lyrics in New Song "Boss Life"

The internet is usually the first to call you out when you mess up. Offset, one third of the group Migos, is the latest to come under fire after people listened to his new song with YFN Lucci called "Boss Life."

One line says "I cannot vibe with queers." These lyrics angered the Twitterverse (and rightfully so!), who came after Offset saying he is being homophobic.

Due to the amount of anger swirling around the internet for his use of "queer," Offset recently apologized for the misunderstanding. The rapper claimed the definition of "queer" in the lyric was based of the definition "odd," rather than an offensive term towards the LGBTQ community.

He took to Instagram Stories to reply to the backlash, which are now deleted. According to Vulture, in the Instagram stories, Offset said, "The definition [sic] ain't even that." Though the stories are now gone, he also posted the Google definition of "queer" on his Instagram feed with an apology.

In the post, Offset further explained his point about his use of the word:

"I didn’t write the line about gay people. I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that. When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation. To me that 'queer' I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd. I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I’m offended [sic] I offended anybody."

At least Offset was quick to apologize and provide some explanation for anyone who was angered by the song. Whether you take his apology seriously or not is up to you, but at least he attempted to clarify. The real question is, do you think he's being sincere?
