Lil Boosie, aka Boosie Badazz, believes the entertainment industry is trying to force children to be homosexual by introducing them to more gay characters on television. Badazz said Thursday on VLAD-TV he doesn't hate LGBTQ people, but "gay stuff is everywhere," and that almost half the population would be gay in 10 years.
His main frustration seems to be with the presence of gay characters in cartoons. "You got cartoons that have gays. On Cartoons! These are kids. Let kids make their own decision if they wanna go that way. Six and seven year old, five year old shouldn't be turned onto gay cartoon when their mind not even developed yet. What if they like how that cartoon talk? Now, you're forcing them to be gay." he said.
"Every TV show is gays. They're kissing each other. It's out of hand."
Badazz, whose birth name is Torrence Hatch, is a 33-year-old southern rapper from Baton Rouge, La. He served prison time from 2009 to 2014, after pleading guilty to drug charges
"They tryna make everybody gay," Boosie said in the interview. "They putting it on our culture. They're putting it everywhere. Gay stuff is everywhere. They're not doing it for the gays."
The "Smile To Keep From Crying" rapper also said that he believes the influx of homosexuality on TV is just a conspiracy theory to make money. He doesn't believe that television executives are really "fans of the gays," reports Vibe.
When he was asked what he would do if his son, Torrence Hatch Jr., came to him and told him he was gay, Boosie said he'd try to "slap his a** back straight," but if that didn't work he wouldn't ban the child from his life. He'd "find some crazy way to deal with it."
Despite his feelings, Boosie is adamant that he isn't homophobic. "I don't hate gay people at all," he said. "I know plenty gay people. But don't force it on 'em to be gay. Don't do that. I just feel like that's wrong. I came home and was like 'What is going on?' It was out of hand, man."
The New York Daily News reports Boosie said "it wasn't like that when I was coming up. The Ninja Turtles wasn't kissing ... They didn't have two men on 'The Flintstones' kissing. 'The Jetsons' wasn't kissing."
Hatch grew up without a father figure in his life, according to online sources. He is married to Walnita Decuir-Hatch, and has seven children.
