Tyga Tweets Homophobic Slurs at Gossip Website
Young Money rapper Tyga went ballistic on his Twitter account recently and tweeted some homophobic remarks in regard to an item that was posted on gossip website MediaTakeOut. According to the Urban Daily, the website posted a story alluding that Tyga is gay after he and his friend, Chris Brown, were purportedly caught in a compromising position.
This stemming from an incident in Miami where Brown, while sitting in his Bentley, allegedly grabbed an iPhone from a photo-snapping fan and reportedly said, "B---h, you aint putting this on the internet!" The website believes that Breezy didn't want the fan to post a video of him and his passenger, Tyga, engaging in homosexual activities.
Tyga then blasted the website tweeting, "Who runs mediatakeout. F----ts, trannys, or both??? I’ll wait." The aforementioned tweet has since been removed.
Tsk, tsk. Have we not learn from Chris Brown's past tirades of spewing hate on Twitter?
No doubt that once GLAAD gets a hold of this story they are going to go after the 'Rack City' rapper. Gay gossip blogger Perez Hilton has already scolded Tyga for his homophobic slurs.
@Tyga Because faggots and trannys are bad people that spread lies? That's what it sounds like you're saying. And that's very disappointing!

In his defense, Tyga insists that he's not anti-gay but doesn't like gossip stories written about him that question his sexuality.
@PerezHilton have nothing against gays..Power to what u do. But spreading false negativity is a weak emotion to me. — TYGA (@Tyga) February 29, 2012
So is spewing homophobic tweets, Tyga, but we digress. The 'Motto' rapper later tried to plead his case to his followers:
If I could I would never do interviews or anything. But make music, videos and do shows. I don't care about Anything else but my fans!!!
