Wale Didn’t Even Know He Canceled on D.C.’s Black Pride

It’s not that rapper Wale has a problem with homosexuals! The reason he dropped out of D.C.’s Black Pride event, where he was set to perform, is because … well, he didn’t even know he was booked! And he didn’t even know that he had canceled!

“I didn’t even know bout a show..I have done 48 shows this year..and I haven’t booked one personally,” he says via Twitter, where he’s got 200k+ followers. It was his agent who booked, and then canceled (because it was a gay event, supposedly), Wale’s appearance. Which makes sense: Talent usually doesn’t book their own acts; their reps do.

“Anybody who knows me an familar w/ my music know that I work for PEOPLE..all ppl,” he tweets. “and the people who perpetuate the rumors are just as evil as the ppl they defend theirself against daily.” C’mon, go @reply him! Tell him you still ♥ him.

      I’ve never heard him say anything homophobic. I have no reason not to believe him. Maybe he can come next year.

      No reason not to believe him. Except for all the preconceived stereotypes showcased in the other Wale thread or previous hop-hop centric articles.

      Seems pretty easy to paint a black face homophobic here. No primer necessary.
