Rapper Waka Flocka Flame (aka Juaquin Malphurs) felt backlash from the entire LGBT community over the weekend after sharing his views about Caitlyn Jenner.
Flocka took to Twitter to clarify his statements but only after he got blasted for speaking about the “dangers” posed for “traditional families” during his interview last Friday with New York radio station Power 101.5 show, The Breakfast Club.
“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 popular rapper went on to blame the devil for the rise of interest in the lives of transgender people, stating that 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.”
After receiving a ton of online backlash over his remarks, Waka decided to tweet clarification of his comments:
