Kid Cudi Slams Homophobes, Hip-Hop's Silence On Gay Rights After Orlando

In the wake of the Orlando massacre, dozens of celebrities have taken to social media to voice support for the LGBTQ community -- including Grammy-winning rapper Kid Cudi, who shared some heartfelt words on Twitter.


However, after some homophobic, reactionary comments in his mentions, Cudi decided he had enough and proceeded to go off in the baddest way possible -- encouraging all bigots to unfollow him and tackling the issue of homophobia in the hip-hop community.



A sentiment that fellow rapper Ty Dolla $ign then echoed.



And was continued by several of Cudi's RTs that encouraged followers to donate money and blood. Cudi also shared a powerful video of Anderson Cooper reading the names of all the Orlando victims, and responded to several LGBTQ fans in earnest -- which is a heartwarming gesture of support to say the least.



Needless to say, we're excited to see how else Cudi plans to speak out as an ally with a huge platform. In the meantime, PAPER's reached out to Kid Cudi for further comment and will update once we hear back.
