Offset from Migos offers a very weak denial of homophobia

Offset from Migos offers a very weak denial of homophobia
A recent track saw Offset from Migos drop the following lyrics ““60K solitaire / I do not vibe with queers / I got the heart of a bear / I bust ‘em down by the pair”.” And yes, that looks massively homophobic. 
Offset has now replied to the barrage of criticism, and it’s particularly weak.
“I didn’t write the line about gay people,” his statement read. “I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that… When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation. To me that ‘queer’ I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd.”
So, at best, he’s totally tone deaf and rather daft. At worst, who believes that.
