Lil Mama announced on Twitter last week that she was starting a “straight rights movement.” This comes after he received a backlash for a series of transphobic comments he made. Lil Mama claims that the reason for starting the movement is to protect herself and other heterosexuals from being bullied by the LGBTQ + community.
Lil Mama posted on her Instagram story: “I’m about to start a heterosexual rights movement.” She went on to say, “You all fight so hard to be respected and SOME of you, NOT ALL, have fun bullying people for having a choice, how they dress, what their hair or makeup looks like, how much money do they have, etc. There are so many people who are afraid to give their honest opinion because if they do, LGBTQ + will listen to what they want to hear and take the statements out of context. I don’t have to prove myself by reminding people that I have loved ones from the LGBTQ + community. I’m not trying to hurt anyone, I’m just telling my truth, like all of you. “
His statement on Instagram is in response to the backlash he received for other transphobic comments he made earlier this month. He claimed that being transgender is a form of “depopulation at any cost.”
As responses mounted, many people on social media encountered transphobic comments that she had made in 2009 while serving as one of MTV’s judges. America’s Best Dance Team. In the clip, he criticized transgender dancer and choreographer Leiomy Maldonado.
“Leiomy, come on. Your behavior is unacceptable, ”he said. “I feel like you always have to remember your truth. “You were born a man and you are becoming a woman. If you’re going to become a woman, act like a lady … You know what I’m saying? It gets too crazy and confusing. “
