Ocean — who is gay — drew Wale's ire, with Wale talking about how he believes men get a bump for coming out publicly:
"Of course. Of course. If a dude was gay, man, he'd get a Grammy. They're going to make fun of them, they're gonna throw their Twitter jokes… but in the next three years there's probably gonna be a dude who's not even gay that's just like ‘Man, this is my last resort' … But nah, I would sign a gay rapper if he was dope. ‘Go ahead man, go do that thing, go do them Versace fashion shows'."
Wale tried to clarify it, but just dug the hole a little bit deeper with more comments:
"But the point I'm trying to make is it's definitely – and people are probably going to go bad on me for saying this – but its an advantage to be gay in this country right now. That's just the fact of the matter. Frank Ocean is very dope. Very very dope artist. He got pushed to the moon when he dropped his album though. He got the Grammy and everything. There's about 30 artists in the country that sold about how much he did or more – they didn't get any of that."
Hmmm… sounds like Wale may just be making an excuse for bigotry!!
The brunette shared a sweet photo with her former flame and penned a heartbreaking caption in his memory.
The late sports star's longtime love reflected on their time together, writing:
"My deepest love goes out to those who saw jose as more than an athlete, but as a passionate, raw human being. The heart break is unbearable. There was so much more to him than anyone could even begin to understand. I'm fortunate enough to have loved and be loved by jose, and his family, for over 3 crazy beautiful years."
Miz Mendoza admitted she will always love the 24-year-old, and told her followers to never take moments with their loved ones for granted, adding:
