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├óΓé¼┬ª but in the next three years there’s probably gonna be a dude who’s not even gay that’s just like ├óΓé¼╦£Man, this is my last resort’ ├óΓé¼┬ª But nah, I would sign a gay rapper if he was dope. ├óΓé¼╦£Go ahead man, go do that thing, go do them Versace fashion shows’.”

Uhh… what?!

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 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ and people are probably going to go bad on me for saying this ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ 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 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ they didn’t get any of that.”

Hmmm… sounds like Wale may just be making an excuse for bigotry!!
