50 Cent tried to troll Tank over his recent comments on homosexuality but was quickly shut down by the singer.
The rapper took to Instagram posting a photo of Tank wearing a pink sweatshirt that read “Pride”. He captioned the post, “yo my man Suga Tank said you not gay if you ?suck ?once or twice. ?what kinda shit is going on? #lecheminduroi #bransoncognac.”
50’s post caught the eye of Tank who had an EPIC response to his trolling. He commented, “Make sure you get the #1 R&B album in the world “Elevation”! @50cent if you play my album you won’t have to buy yo girl shit to f–k.. Let me help you..???”
The rapper was referring to a recent interview Tank gave on Angela Yee’s podcast “Lip Service. On the show they discussed a variety of topics including relationships, his ex and sex.
The topic of a man giving oral sex to another man came up on the podcast. Tank expressed his view that a man isn’t automatically gay because he had oral sex with another man.
He said, “He sucked a di once, and then he’s like, ‘I’m not sure if I liked it or not. Let me try it again.’ And then he says, ‘You know what, it’s not for me. Don’t like the taste,’ see what I’m saying? It doesn’t mean he’s gay, it means he sucked di twice.”Many homophobic trolls were quick to criticize Tank for his comments. The trolls hurled ignorant comments accusing Tank of being gay. The conversation did spark a debate on social media about the definition of homosexuality.
Tank fired back at the trolls, “I said what I said, ya’ll so goddmn homophobic. You got to watch the whole clip. In any event, homophobia is real, let me just tell you that. It’s just as real as racism, classism, all these things, and just as damaging. And it plagues our community the worst. This can’t be used as a negative. You can’t use a human being’s existence as a negative. We’re going through enough sh*.”
He spoke to Charlagmagne tha God about his comments, “It does throw you off, right? But it still speaks to an act versus an existence. And maybe that was just too much for the Internet to break down at one time.”
Tank took to social media following the 50 Cent post. He posted a sexy shirtless photo captioned, “Unbothered because #1 isn’t concerned with any other numbers.. Also unbothered cause I really look like this.. They don’t!.. #RnBMoney #TheGeneral #TanksElevation OUT NOW!! Link in bio! ? @calvinhydephoto”
Nick Cannon commented, “Talk yo sh-t OG!!! ????” while Mehcad Brooks said, “
AhhAha. Congratulations. Love you brother”
A fan told Tank, “Blessed in all the best ways! Enjoy the success!” Another said, “Stay unbothered! We the people love you and been supporting you for years! I bump your music everyday and been doing so for years. @therealtank”
“PERIODT. U have better things to worry about. Misery loves company ☝?” said one person.
