Rapper Says Gay Fans Don't Mind His Homophobic Language

Rapper Tyler, the Creator, has responded to claims of homophobia, saying that his gay fans aren't offended by his frequent use of the word "faggot," reports MTV.

The rapper, who leads a Los Angeles-based hip hop collective called Odd Future, uses the word "faggot" 204 times on his recent album Goblin. Other musicians, including Sara Quin, who is lesbian, and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation have spoken out against Tyler's repeated use of the slur.

MTV asked him about the controversy. "Well, I have gay fans and they don't really take it offensive, so I don't know. If it offends you, it offends you," Tyler says. "If you call me a nigga, I really don't care, but that's just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way; I personally don't give a shit."
