Trick Daddy & His Breakfast Club Interview


During an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club Morning Show, Trick Daddy tried to explain that he wasn’t homophobia while spewing classic homophobic sayings.

First, he said that since he has a “sister that is his brother” and “an aunt that’s his uncle” there’s no way he could be homophobic.  But then went on to imply that gay people have a certain image and therefore can’t be seen as “thugs.”

“I just don’t see a dude calling himself a thug or calling himself a killer when if he pull his pants up you can see his shape,” he said.

He then went on to say that being gay during “his era” had to be kept a secret until they were an adult.

“If you were gay, in my era, in my time, you waited ’til you were 30, you couldn’t even peep out of the closet. Your homeboys, your classmate, your teacher, your parents, your brother and sister, they would ride you like a dog. You might want to change your mind… Michael Jackson and Prince were the only borderline dudes I accepted in my life. You can’t even be borderline. I don’t get it.”

He doesn’t realize that saying that “you don’t get it” and doubting a gay man’s ability to be able to do anything outside of being feminine is homophobic. He said the way he thought was rooted in his upbringing. Though this is true, it doesn’t mean that it was an acceptable way of thinking then or now.
