Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa sparked unrest on Black Twitter when he said straight men should avoid eating bananas. The rapper made the controversial statements during an interview on NY radio station The Breakfast Club on Wednesday.

Wiz suggested that straight men shouldn't eat bananas because it made them look gay.

"If you bite a banana, you suspect n---a," he said.

"I’m just trying to help you out bro. If you in public, and you eating a banana, you gotta break it into pieces."

His comments didn't go over well on Black Twitter. One Twitter user wrote: "Wiz Khalifa said in an interview that it’s gay for men to eat bananas. .. can you imagine your masculinity being THAT fragile? C’mon Wiz".

Wiz visited The Breakfast Club on Wednesday to promote his new album, Rolling Papers 2.

    That makes perfect sense, Wiz, perfect sense. ? ?

    I don’t know why this popped up in my head while I was reading this. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a7d9c599d009c4026ec3fb7b740be95913a0ab5f2b8298e35becad4e150e2fe0.gif

  • Miss Thang

    so goofy lol

  • Thingamajig

    First of all, it’s how you eat the banana ?, and second, he’s just being goofy that’s all.

  • missmiami305

    I mean he has a point because I have never seen a man eat a banana without cutting it up. I do have a visual and it’s funny. Lol! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8dcf68e9e6bae5e40b9b7ae6c75a38f50af6d0fe788084290fbf79582fa91ca7.jpg

  • dru and neil

    Dumbest comment ever. I wish people would remember how influential they are to young people. No, eating a banana does not make you look gay. Get your potassium in.

  • Trace da Ace

    he was high as hell when he made that statement......10 times out of 10.......probably was joking..c'mon now..

  • GAPeach

    I'm sure he was joking. He's always really jovial. He didn't even go off when Kanye came at him foul. I'm not about to listen to see for myself though. Got other things to do.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    LOL!!!!!! he said IN PUBLIC... "break it into pieces" ....Wiz just trippin' and having a lil fun... who's mad (and why)??????

    right! he was joking in reference to the VISUAL... gosh! (tight azzes, LOL!!!!!)

  • ShelbyMoore

    People spend so much time being offended by nonsense. The world would be a better place if people stop wearing their feelings on their sleeves. The next generations are gonna be a bunch of pussas$ fairies.

  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen

    The most homophobic dudes be the gayest ones. He's projecting. This wouldn't even cross the mind of a secure man. Why he worried bout what other grown ass men do anyway? He's clearly the one with the problem! When he sees a man eat a banana, he thinks sexual/ gay thoughts. How insecure can you be? Now he'll go on to teach his son the same logic. He'll have his son calling other men gay who eat bananas. SMFH. These y'all #Kangz tho.

  • missmiami305

    Thanks I try

  • Carrington

    Black people have the most ignorant assed thought processes about the most basic shit. LMAO I don't get it. I was talking to a girl the other day and an NFL player was on TV during a workout and she said, "I would never date a man who would wear a cut off t-shirt... that's gay ASF!"
    Really, you dumb a$$... this man is doing one of the most masculine things a man can do, play football, and you wouldn't date him because they work out in mid-driff shirts? Meanwhile, the man you CHOSE walking around giving his a$$ cheeks an EXTRA pick me up by putting his belt and pants under his ass cheeks and then tightening it for an extra lift. BYE.
    I hate our thought processes sometimes.
    My friend said he would never let his son wear a shirt with pink on it because it would make him gay... Dude, if your son turns out gay because his multicolored shirt had some pink in it... he was planning to lick d*cks with his friends as soon as he was "free" to do so anyway... it ain't the shirt. Trust me.
    On another note: Wiz made it a point of talking about how much he loved his gay (or was it trans) brother... and THIS is how you feel?
    On another nother note, Wiz walking around looking like a whole stud who can't "pass" yet.

  • Listen2Me

    No justification for that foolishness ?????!

  • Trace da Ace

    Girl...thats what I'm saying.....

  • Trace da Ace

    naw....he was liking that shit...for real...smdh

  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen

    Oh sh!t. I forgot about that. Yea, wiz is projecting AF. People saying on here that he was "joking" but many ignorant people who look up to him will think like this too. What if a man is attacked and mobbed for being suspected of being gay...all because of what wiz said? SMH.His comments are an attack on gay men PERIOD and should not be excused.

  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen

    You mean black men?? Don't bring black women in this mess! That person you described sounds like a child, not a grown woman with some sense.

  • Tiff J

    LOL I use to watch it too. Was trhis the show where they sang "I like to eat, eat, eat, apples and bananas" ? But they would say bananas in a funny way. Or was that song on Barney. Hmmmm.... let me go see if I can find it on YT.

  • NeverSurprised

    "Wiz Khalifa sparked unrest..."
    --------------
    That insignificant comment sparked unrest? Really? How about a little "unrest" over him sitting next to an ADMITTED RAPIST, who is apparently so well-connected that no major black blogs will post the recordings of him ADMITTING to RAPING HIS WIFE when they were stlill dating, and to spiking another woman's drink, then having sex with her when she was "blacked out."(RAPE under S. C. law )

    Charlemagne ADMITS TO RAPING WIFE:
    mobile.twitter.com/loveelly24/status/1019197954815475712

    ADMITS TO DRUGGING WOMAN THEN HAVING SEX WITH HER WHEN SHE WAS "BLACKED OUT":

    https://youtu.be/nUbYdHbzDQ8

    I realize it would be asking too much to expect "unrest" over him bringing a 15 year old to a party with his adult male friends, giving her a spiked drink, then SOMEHOW allowing her to get RAPED. She was only a black female child, so naturally most people view her as "insignificant" and "EXPENDABLE."

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Lol!

  • Tiff J

    Oh that song is from Barney. LOL Makes sense, why would bananas sing about eating themselves. LOL

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    if you're gay and offended, i can respect your feelings about the comment. because some of us interpret it as him just being silly, doesn't translate to us supporting any sort of "attack on gay men" or looking up to him.

  • dblogged

    Says the guy who has worldly fame and riches (aka stays with a banana in his mouth)

  • Kay Gee

    It does look funny though...I don't equate it to being gay, it just looks odd, I've seen it in real life when I used to take breaks with some of my male co-workers...

  • Yui

    Me thinks that was Barney.

    After this shot of Apollo biting that pickle, I may have to agree. To all the straight men, if it has length and or girth, break that isht up and eat it. lol

  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen

    So Auntie, what's the point of the post then? Surely you knew that some would find offense in his words or that there would be some level of controversy surrounding his statements. Was Charlamagne joking when he said he raped his wife? Yet you seem to post (promote) a breakfast club interview, which may be offensive to some. My point is, there's a lot of hypocrisy in this thread. Why is this even newsworthy?

  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen

    BM get coddled on everything! This man is attacking gays but if you're offended by his "jokes" you're too sensitive? SMH. Sounds akin to people not taking the jokes and attacks against black women seriously and when we clapback or speak up, we're told that were being "too sensitive". People only care when it affects them directly I see. SMH.

  • Carrington

    I can't hear the sound on my work computer so, I relied on your "unbiased" summation to provide me with an accurate depiction of what's on this video...

    That was an unexpected comment. Especially considering the fact that he and Amber let their son be so free and lives outside norms or stereotypes. He shouldnt be the one to tell other men how to eat a banana just like he wouldn’t want anyone to tell him how to raise his son to fit cultural norms like boys not painting their fingernails, not dying their hair blonde or going to Taylor Swift concerts and singing the words to every song.

    His foolishness only applies to YOU. You are supposed to believe and subscribe to what he thinks because he is a celebrity who has fame and wields influence. He is a taste-maker and a trendsetter -- a "brand" as they say in the ghetto. Meanwhile, he and his live with no rules because he's rich and above the rest of us -- they can eat bananas while walking a tightrope on HDTV.
