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.

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."

Kandi Burruss celebrated the first day of Gay Pride month by donning a rainbow outfit complete with rainbow sandals, red extensions, and a rainbow parasol.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who confessed to having sexual preferences for both women and men, shared photos of her colorful getup on Instagram on Tuesday, June 1.
The 45-year-old mother-of-three captioned the photos: "Live your life to the fullest! #HappyPrideMonth."
In 2017, Kandi opened up about being bisexual:
"I've said on Housewives before, I have said on Kandi Koated Nights before, yes I've had a girl experience. It's not a secret, but I'm very happily married with my husband and I am not a lesbian waiting to come out of the closet."

In a RHOA episode during season 8, Kandi became agitated when castmate Porsha Williams suggested she was a closeted lesbian.
"She was mad about something else that she thought I said on the show," Kandi said.
"So I guess she shaded me about that and her shade was saying that I was quote unquote 'lesbian waiting to come out of the closet.' Now when I found out she said this, of course, I was looking at her like, 'Oh no you didn't say that!' You know, 'cause I'm like, 'Girl, you like to hookup with girls, so why would you say that as if that were shade?'"
Kandi also denied reports that she is a dominatrix who keeps a well-stocked sex dungeon in her Cascade area mansion.

Right-wing conservative Chadwick Moore angered Black Twitter when he denounced Juneteenth as a holiday in America.
Moore, who is homosexual, tweeted on June 20, "I'm sorry, blacks, but you already have a month. Juneteenth isn't a thing. Don't colonize our month as well. thanks. Signed, the gays."
Moore managed to trigger Black people, liberals, and even other gays -- all of whom tried to "cancel" him. Unfortunately, their efforts fell flat because Moore himself is in the protected category.
Moore also refused to capitalize the 'B' in reference to Black people, writing: "Firstly, black is not with a capital 'B.' That's a recent, weird leftist media style guide thing."
Moore spent the rest of the evening taunting those who tried to cancel him:
"I'm living proof you can beat the mob. I've done it three times now. Why aren't more people like me?"
Moore is a 36-year-old journalist, public speaker, political commentator, and a regular guest on Tucker Carlson's show on Fox News. He was a lifelong liberal until he came out as a conservative in 2016.
