A new video from Kanye West’s upcoming album, T.I. Dangerously, has been censored from the internet due to an “anti-gay” video in which he appears to say “fag.”
The video was released on July 22, 2017, just one day before the release of T.J. Miller’s song “Faggot.”
“Fag is a word that was invented by anti-gay activists to define and demonize people who are gay,” the video’s caption reads.
“As anti-LGBT activists, we’ve used it to silence people of color, women, people of any background and people of different sexual orientations.
It has been used against everyone who is not like us.”
The YouTube video was later removed.
“I’m sorry to anyone who is offended by the video,” the rapper wrote on Instagram.
“It’s not my place to tell you what to think, and it’s not our place to censor people who don’t agree with us.
We’re proud of T-I.
and are working to bring this video to a wider audience.
We’ve also reached out to the creators of the video and are currently working with them on an alternative version.”
The rapper has been outspoken against the idea of LGBT people being discriminated against, and last month he issued an apology to those who he felt were “marginalized” in the gay community.
“This video is an example of why I am so against discrimination,” he wrote.
“There is nothing wrong with being who you are, and I would never ever be able to say or do anything about it.
I don’t want to be a scapegoat for the discrimination that I’ve experienced, and my personal experiences have never been one of them.”
