COULD BE WORSE

Soulja Boy’s Calling Racist Facebook Commenters “White Faggots” Is A Huge Improvement… For Him

Soulja Boy—the 21-year-old rapper behind “Booty Meat”, “Booty Got Swag” and “Pimp Slap Dat Hoe”— recently responded to racist Facebook haters by calling them “faggots” and “white faggots.” He then deleted said comments. This comes on the heels of Kobe Bryant and Noah Joakim’s televised “faggot” slurs and the Tracy Morgan debacle. So should we prepare the press gauntlet that all celebrities must now go through whenever they call someone a faggot? No. In fact, we should probably congratulate Soulja Boy for JUST calling his detractors “white faggots”, especially since he’s made a career calling his enemies much, MUCH worse.

Here’s a rundown of Soulja Boy’s Facebook comments:

“WHO THE fu*k “likes” an artist on facebook who they dont LIKE. DUMB ASS”

“If you dont like ME or my music UNLIKE the page and let the people who do enjoy their artist giving updates and music out. sh*t getting out of hand now. GTFOH you stalkers”

“how can you say “i hate you” blah blah blah. when you are on my page that doesnt make any sense! it sounds crazy you are stalking a person who you dont like WTF kinda sh*t is that. no life having bi*ches”

“haters are so fu*king stupid! “i dont like soulja boy so im gonna like his facebook and wait till he post a video to be the 1st one to comment” n****a get the fu*k out of here go get some pus*y and stop being a lame”

“pus*y ass white boys make me sick man. LET A BLACK MAN SHINE AND DO SOMETHING POSITIVE!!! DAMN YALL ALREADY GOT MONEY AND LIVING RIGHT STOP HOLDING US BLACK PEOPLE DOWN TRYING TO DO SOMETHING POSITIVE WITH THEIR LIVES! YALL BEEN fu*kING WITH US SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME. if I don’t like a artist im not going to like their facebook and talk to them. use common sense and stop being stupid.”

“IM TIRED OF WHITE PEOPLE DOING US LIKE THIS MAN!! THEY TREAT US SO WRONG!! fu*k THEM MAN ON GOD!! fu*k THEM FOR LIKING A BLACK MANS FACEBOOK JUST TO TALK sh*t!! fu*k RACIST I HATE YOU”

“Maybe I finally said the right sh*t to get these racist to unlike my page. Fans i’m sorry you had to read this. but we must take a stand. they WILL not treat us like this any longer. I dont give a fu*k.”

“I’m gonna keep talking sh*t to these white f*ggots until they unlike my page. fu*king weirdo stalkers!”

“just unlike my page and shut the fu*k up. let my fans enjoy me. All young black people dont let these f*ggots discourage you from your dreams! you can be anything you want! DESPITE them always trying to hold us down and talk sh*t! WE ARE GREAT”

“if you are saying “soulja i dont like u now” i dont give a fu*k i dont want u on my page anyway. I am going to speak my mind forever. and if something is not right ITS JUST NOT RIGHT! I can’t help it i’m a real person with feelings. fu*k a hater. and fu*k a racist. out.”

Here’s the thing. Soulja Boy is also know for lyrics that threaten to “run inside yo momma house and shoot that bitch off in her teeth” as well as harsh words for his once rap foe, Lil’ Bow Wow:

you gay nigga
you a snitch nigga
how you gonna send your bestfriend to jail nigga
ya you didnt want dat out der did cha
faggot ass nigga
who da fuck kinda nigga got prince-O-town tattooed on his chest
ohio is a state you stupid bitch
nigga wen you was like 13 didnt you get raped by your bodygarud
nigga you was born in raimsonburg, ohio..you aint from columbus bitch
faggot ass nigga
you aint never gonna grow past 5 feet PUSSY
nigga you gay as fuck nigga

But should we just file his Facebook tirade under the subheading “young man shooting his mouth off” or under “Hip-hop homophobia”? Will GLAAD or any members of the LGBT community pile onto this 21-year-old, foul-mouthed, gangster rapper and try to rehabilitate him into making an “It Gets Better” video, or would that be like GLAAD asking the porn industry to stop using “tranny” and “she-male” in its T-porn titles?

Maybe the queer media considers some performers just beyond or below help. Or maybe this issue would be better handled by communities of color rather than a bunch of white faggots.
