50 Cent is up to his routine social media antics. Once again he’s targeting Tank.
On Wednesday (November 6), the Power tycoon shared a photo of Tank sporting a pink “Pride” hoodie and wrote in the caption, “yo my man Suga Tank said you not gay if you suck [dick] once or twice. what kinda shit is going on?”
Tank cunningly replied with a promo for his album, commenting, “Make sure you get the #1 R&B album in the world “Elevation”! @50cent if you play my album you won’t have to buy yo girl shit to fuck.. Let me help you.”
50 Cent’s comment was in reference to a recent interview Tank did for Angela Yee’s Lip Service podcast. The topic of oral sex came up at one point. Tank said experimenting with the same gender doesn’t necessarily make someone gay.
“He sucked a dick once, and then he’s like, ‘I’m not sure if I liked it or not. Let me try it again,’” he said. “And then he says, ‘You know what, it’s not for me. Don’t like the taste,’ see what I’m saying? It doesn’t mean he’s gay, it means he sucked dick twice.”
Tank was later on dragged from here to kingdom come and accused of being a homosexual, which lead to a response from the R&B singer.
“I said what I said, ya’ll so goddamn homophobic,” he replied. “You got to watch the whole clip. In any event, homophobia is real, let me just tell you that. It’s just as real as racism, classism, all these things, and just as damaging. And it plagues our community the worst. This can’t be used as a negative. You can’t use a human being’s existence as a negative. We’re going through enough shit.”
Tank later jumped on Instagram to let his 1.6 million followers know he wasn’t impacted by any of the negativity.
“Unbothered because #1 isn’t concerned with any other numbers,” in the caption he wrote, referencing his Elevation album’s No. 1 placement on Billboard’s R&B chart. “Also unbothered cause I really look like this.. They don’t!”
