While the world recovers from the news that future-NFL player Mike Sam is gay, and by “world recovers,” I mean, “nothing is different because no one should care if he’s straight, gay, or David Bowie,” it’s worth remembering what Frank Ocean went through when he came out. Let’s see: his dick grew and…that’s about it! Ocean received relatively little public backlash, unless you talk to T-Pain who has some WORDS.

“I think the radio is getting more gay-friendly,” he said. “I don’t think urban music is getting more gay-friendly because if that was the case, Frank Ocean would be on a lot more songs. I know n*ggas that will not do a song with Frank Ocean just because he gay, but they need him on the f*cking song and that’s so terrible to me, man.”

T-Pain also said he feels the use of “no homo” jokes are “unnecessary” and complained about people being afraid to approach him because his assistant is an out gay man.

“You ain’t even got bitches,” he said. “Why you think this gay dude is going to like you? Bitches don’t even like you. You can’t think you’re a gift from god to gay men, that’s stupid.” (Via)

“Why you think this gay dude is going to like you? Bitches don’t even like you.” T-BURN.
