Well, this is disappointing.

Video of Atlanta and Get Out star Lakeith Stanfield spouting off a homophobic rap has surfaced online.

The 20-second video was originally posted on Stanfield’s own Instagram account but was quickly deleted.

Shortly thereafter it was reposted on Twitter by user @_BayBey, along with the caption: “So @lakeithlakeith from @AtlantaFX && @Sorry2BotherYou Though this ‘freestyle’ (that you can clearly see him looking down & reading) was appropriate?! Lol ppl are truly Homophobic weirdos Lakeith Stanfield sis you played yourself.”

“That’s some gay sh*t,” 26-year-old Stanfield raps in the video. “F*g, I don’t really like to brag but I’m straight, rich.”

In addition to acting, Stanfield is a member of a hip hop group named Moors.

“I really do feel like Lakeith Stanfield did this lil homophobic rap because there’s 00000 buzz around his upcoming movie,” @_BayBey writes in a followup tweet. “Everyone knows the gays run the world so that was the smartest thing to do to create a buzz.”

Stanfield, who is perhaps best known for playing the role of Andre Hayworth/Logan King in Get Out, last year’s critically acclaimed directorial debut of Jordan Peele, has yet to issue any comment on the video.
