Waka Flocka Flame

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame insulted Caitlyn Jenner on Friday, saying she is 'marketing evil" and is an 'affront to God.' Following a backlash of criticism, he apologized and clarified his remarks on Twitter.

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame has taken to Twitter to extinguish a firestorm he created when he insulted Caitlyn Jenner and transgender people in general. Flame went on to bemoan the "dangers" posed for "traditional families" in Friday's interview with New York radio station Power 101.5 show The Breakfast Club,

Commenting that young people are now "afraid" to be "husbands and wives," Flame went on a diatribe about transgender people. He blames the media and pop culture for the recent focus on trans rights.

"Women are afraid to be a wife and young males is afraid to be men," he said. "It's like, it's not cool, they're not marketing that. They don't market families and husbands and wives no more. They marketing young girls, you know what I'm saying? Transgenders -- they're marketing evil, man."

The rapper went on to blame the devil for the rise of interest in the lives of transgender people. He said Caitlyn Jenner and the media attention her transition has spurred is an "affront to God."

"You are who you are when God made you, not who you became after he did," Flame told the radio hosts. "That's how I just feel. You rebuking God, man. God didn't put them feelings in you, man, that's the Devil playing tricks on your mind. That's a test from God. If you can't outbeat [sic] that one task and you believe that, then you're going to believe everything else."

There's been no reaction from Jenner as of press time. But an online backlash over his remarks prompted the rapper to tweet a clarification of his comments:
