UPDATE 11:09 A.M. EST: Offset has another unacceptable apology. He shared on Instagram shortly after we went live with our coverage:
I didn├óΓé¼Γäót write the line about gay people. I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I├óΓé¼Γäóm not in a place where I├óΓé¼Γäóm hating like that. When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation. To me that “queer” I don├óΓé¼Γäót mean someone who├óΓé¼Γäós gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd. I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I├óΓé¼Γäóm offended I offended anybodyA post shared by OFFSET (@offsetyrn) on Jan 18, 2018 at 7:14am PST
Nope. Not today. You know exactly what “queer” means in the context of 2018.
Fuck Offset and his homophobic bullshit!
To be fair, his lyrics about pushing drugs and disrespecting women were never cool either — so, bye Felicia!
During his cameo on YFN Lucci├óΓé¼╦£s song Boss Life, the 26-year-old says:
“Pinky ring crystal clear, 40k spent on a private Lear (fyuu) / 60k solitaire (60 ball) / I cannot vibe with queers (hun hun) / I got the heart of a bear”
We cannot vibe with you either, bish!

Obviously, and rightfully so, Offset has received a ton of backlash for his ignorant remark.
In response, he denied being a homophobe on his Instagram Story, writing (below):
Not sold. U???
