Game Tries to Clear Up His ‘Closeted Gay’ Comments
Rapper Game appeared on TMZ to clarify his point that closeted gay men spread AIDS by tricking women into bed, which has sparked a huge debate online.
As we previously reported, Game told VLADTV that he believes there are several gay rappers in the music industry. The Compton, Calif., rhyme-slinger made sure to reiterate that he’s not homophobic, however, he does have issues with men hiding their homosexuality. “Game don’t have a problem with gay people. Game has problem with people who are pretending not to be gay,” he said. "The number one issue with that is that you can be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die. So that in the closet s--- is real scary."
During his interview with TMZ's Harvey Levin, Game tries to set the record straight on his "gay" comments. He believes that men need to be more honest with their sexuality and not hide it from their prospective sex partners. "There are some men who make it worst on people -- men and women -- when they're hiding their homosexuality," he tells Levin. "Be gay and be cool. That way, you give people the option on whether they want to deal with you in that manner, sexually. That type of stuff is ruining the world and it's not really cool that people are hiding stuff. And I'm not necessarily saying that everybody who hasn't come out of the closet has AIDS. I can't [make that assessment], I'm just stating my opinion."
In the end, both Game and Levin agreed that people should practice safe sex and use protection to reduce the risk of contracting HIV. Or as Game puts it, "I would take myself down to Ralph's and get a 20-pack [of condoms]."
So what do you think? Does Game have a point or is he just confused?
