SMH: The Game Connects HIV To Closeted Gay Men And Says 50 Cent is Gay?!

The Game has been taking his promotional tactics to the next level since the release of his R.E.D. album only a few weeks ago.  The Compton rapper has been participating in some online controversy with the recent rant on closeted gay men on the DL and former boss 50 Cent’s “questionable” sexuality.

In an interview with VLAD TV last week, The Game explained:

“Game don’t have a problem with gay people. Game has problem with people who are pretending not to be gay…The number one issue with that is that you could be fooling somebody and you could give them AIDS and they can die and so that in the closet shit is real scary. So, we’ve got to get into the real seriousness of it and it’s just not fair to other people…”

(Don’t you love how he refers to himself in third person?)

The Game responded to TMZ and others about his statements in a series of tweets, one of which suggested that fellow rapper 50 Cent is gay.

TMZ (always trying to be somebody’s mediator O_o) spoke to the San Francisco AIDS Foundation on Game’s recent rant. TMZ reports:

The San Francisco AIDS Foundation has issued a statement, claiming Game’s comments in a recent interview about the gay community are “a powerful reminder that despite the tremendous progress made debunking myths and stereotypes about how HIV is spread, we still have work to do.”

The foundation notes, “[Game] seems to be confusing two important facts — that black and gay communities continue to bare the brunt of the U.S. epidemic.”

“Experts agree that the hype around people on the ‘down low’ driving new infections among either group is just that — hype.”

The SFAF claims they want to speak with The Game because “we’d welcome the chance to help him better understand HIV risk and prevention so he can use his voice to inform and empower.”
