'The Breakfast Club' Faces Backlash For Lil Duval's Comments About Transgender Women
(AllHipHop News) Over the last few days, #BoycottTheBreakfastClub has become a protest trend on Twitter.
The social media backlash was the result of the radio show's recent interview with Lil Duval.
"Shout out to all the trannys out there," said Duval on the program.
Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee could be seen laughing before telling the comedian he should not use that term to describe transgender people.
When DJ Envy asked what he would do if he later found out a woman he slept with was actually transgender, Duval responded, "This might sound messed up - and I don't care - she dying.
Charlamagne then warned the Grow House star that what he was suggesting could be considered a hate crime.
However, that did not stop the Power 105.1 morning crew from catching some heat themselves.
CTG even faced a small protest during his appearance at the Politicon event in California.
"Trans people are not a joke," yelled one protester.
Both Lil Duval and Charlagmagne Tha God responded to the criticism on their respective social media accounts.
"I'm not apologizing for nothing. Y'all passing around a 34 second clip and purposely cut out when we told him he was wrong," posted Charlagmagne on Twitter.
Duval wrote on Instagram:
So let me ask u slow ass transgender n-ggaz something. Y'all really think if u don't tell a Man U use to be a man it's gon be no repercussion to it? Yea ok 😒 if u can see why somebody would kill someone that rape them u should understand how a straight man feels. Matter fact I ain't going back and forth with u confused n-gga b-tches
why are [black] men so obsessed with being ignorant? idegaf about political correctness, but it's this fixation on this narrative. pic.twitter.com/U94iUB2o4k
