Rapper Benzino‘s daughter, aspiring rapper Coi Leray (left) came out as a lesbian on Instagram in time to join Gay Pride Month festivities.
Coi came out with her lover, rapper Pressa, in a video she shared on her Instagram Story.
Coi Leray is best known for an embarrassing viral video that showed a crowd in stunned silence as they watched her perform at the Toyota Center in Houston on Saturday, May 29.
Nicki Minaj and other rappers showed support for the 24-year-old rapper who was devastated when the video went viral.
The comments were brutal, with many social media users suggesting Coi should find another line of work.
“The love use to outweigh the hate but now the hate outweigh the love and it’s slowing destroying me. Y’all haters are in my life for a reason, we gon have to just deal with each other. In with whatever smoke.”
Nicki came to the young lady’s defense, writing:
“Don’t do that. Chin up. Always remember this, when black ppl not fkn w|you #TheyWillBoo. Those ppl were on their feet. That means they may not have known the song, but they were interested in getting to know more— so they were observing u. Charge it to the game & move on.”
The grateful rapper responded:
“Thank you so much for this. This means everything and more to me. Wow. I’m speechless. You just gave me so much more hope. Thank you again.”
