Rapper YG Says His LGBTQ Views Were 'Ignorant', Apologizes For His Past

By Jeff Mazzeo

YG is clearing his conscience to start the new year by apologizing to the LGBTQ community for his past views.

The 29-year-old rapper Tweeted his heartfelt mea culpa on Tuesday just before 2019 wrapped up.

"it’s been brought to my attention that my old views on life was ignorant," he stated. "i apologize to the LGBTQ kommunity for ever komin across like i was anything but respectful and accepting. Live. Love. Ya Life. Gang!"

Why Now?


He offered no explanation as to why he made amends with his past but fans speculate that it has something to do with his ex-girlfriend, Kehlani, who is openly bisexual. The two musical artists dated briefly in 2019.

"He only saying that to appease to kehlani," one follower declared while another said, "Kehlani really teaching you the ways of the world."

Other fans commended the rapper for his action and tweeted, "YG, I applaud your admitting you were ignorant, and apologizing. You may influence others to examine their old beliefs, and together we can make the world a better place."

Another follower noted what a big step it was for the community as a whole. "This speaks volumes especially since i grew up around gangs," the fan wrote.

Clearing Their Consciences


Several celebrities have apologized for their past views and actions recently with fellow rapper, Juicy J being the latest to say sorry for potentially being a bad influence.

"If I inspired anybody to do drugs I apologize," the rapper stated on Friday.

Justin Bieber proved that it is "not too late to say sorry" and apologized for his "racist" words he used in the past.

"When I was young I was uneducated and found myself saying really hurtful things not knowing the power of my words," Bieber wrote on social media. "Racism Is still very prevalent and I want to use my voice to remind we are all human being and all of EQUAL VALUE BEFORE GOD!"

Camila Cabello also said she was sorry for racist social media posts she made in the past.

" When I was younger, I used language that I'm deeply ashamed of and will regret forever," the singer said.

Gone But Not Forgotten


As the ball was dropping in 2019, YG paid tribute to his slain friend, Nipsey Hussle. He shared an awesome picture of Nipsey and himself smiling and laughing to honor his memory.
