Bad rap

‘Get Out’ star Lakeith Stanfield posts and swiftly deletes homophobic video from social media

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.
