City Girls member Yung Miami née Caresha Brownlee finally walked back her comments on how she would respond if she were to discover her now five-year-old son was gay. In an interview with Baller Alert, she spoke about witnessing the difficulty her gay cousin experienced and added, “My tweet, I shouldn’t have said it the way I said it. But, you know, if that was the road my son wanted to go down, I’d still love my son. I wouldn’t beat my son. It’s just that I tweeted that when I was a little girl. I’m grown now. I see things totally different.”
Yung has been under fire ever since a five-year-old Tweet of hers surfaced in mid-November 2018 that read, “If I Ever See Any Gay S**t In My Son Imma Beat That Bo So Baddd.”
Yung initially responded to the brouhaha with a statement that read: “I understand how it can be seen as offensive to the LGBTQ community. I also realize how insensitive my comments were to my fans and followers. I want everyone to understand that I personally didn’t mean any harm by saying those comments about my son’s sexuality. My deepest apologies and heart goes out to those who have seen that tweet and were offended by that.”
However, when she visited Power 105.1’s “Breakfast Club” not long after the tweet surfaced, she took a more cavalier approach and said while the talk about beating her son was an exaggeration, she still didn’t want him to be gay. “I have absolutely nothing against gay people, but I wouldn’t want my son to be gay,” she stated. “I’m around a lot of gay people all of the time. My stylist is gay, my cousin is gay.”
