‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Benzino Causes Controversy After Giving Unsolicited Advice To Gay Community — Watch

Remember when Tyrese decided to open his mouth and spit out some advice about how women should look? And act?

And countless other examples of people chiming in with their completely unnecessary opinions about issues that have nothing to do with themselves?

Some people just need to stay in their lane.

In a recent radio interview that seriously made us cringe to our core, Benzino decided to declare that gay folks no longer face any discrimination, and therefore no longer need parades or rallies.

Ummmmm. Oh boy. Someone should make sure that he never links up with Dave Chappelle, because goodness knows what kind of nonsense the two of them would come out with after putting their heads together. 



Just to be completely clear, Benzino does not identify as gay and he reportedly has zero connections to the LGBT community. He is not even an ally, but somehow believes he is an expert on what the "gay community" needs to do. To him, "the gay community" should simmer down because they supposedly have equal rights. 



As BET.com explained, you can still be legally fired from your job in 28 states for being openly gay or lesbian. The current White House administration is actively rolling back LGBT rights, Trans women of color are being murdered at astounding rates and our current president is on a mission to ban trans folks from the military. Furthermore, the rate of LGBT youth homelessness, LGBT youth suicide and HIV/AIDS among Black gay men is disproportionately higher than their straight counterparts. 



Long story short, Benzino needs to put a pin in this and focus more on other matters. And maybe cool it with the sacrilegious social media posts because, like, TOO MUCH, sir.



See: his recent Instagram post, in which he wrote, “Jesus wouldn't have made it to the cross without Judas.......trust the process, the only way GOD can show us he's in CONTROL, is to put us in situations we can't CONTROL. I truly understand now that the "Good, Bad and the Evil" are all needed to prepare me for my final transition to greatness. 💯🔥🙏🏽❤️ #builtforthis”.
