Straight Hosts Ask Gay Rapper Shockingly Ignorant Questions

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 11.47.06 AMIt’s hard to imagine this interview is real, but perhaps it’s more indicative of straight misconceptions of what “gay” is than we ever would guess. The straight people in our lives seem to have generally figured out the basics.

But when gay rapper Cakes da Killa sat down for a radio interview with The Hot 97 Morning Show last week, things just went from weird to embarrassing and back to weird again.

First, the two straight interviewers seem to congratulate Cakes on the fact that they didn’t initially know he was gay when they listened to his music. As if that’s some sort of achievement.

Then the real stupid starts when they suggest in all apparent honesty that on some level they don’t understand why their female lesbian staffer and Cakes wouldn’t hit it off in the sack. I mean, they’re both gay right??

And then the real kicker, in the form of this question:

“Is it directly penis that excites you the most?”

Cakes does his best to keep things light, and for his part he comes across as pretty damn great the entire interview:

“Oh, this cannot be a serious question…Yes, directly the penis that excites me (said sarcastically).”

The whole interview leaves us wondering — are these still common confusions among straight guys? Are these two hosts just hamming it up for the sake of entertainment? Please somebody make sense of this!

Here’s the full interview — tune in to the 16 minute mark for the real circus act routine:
