Omar Apollo Shuts Down Queerbaiting Claims, Loves Sucking Dick

Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Omar Apollo is clapping back at online trolls who are accusing him of queerbaiting.

via Uproxx:

Many musicians have dealt with accusations of queerbaiting, from Harry Styles to Cardi B. Though fans want celebrities to express support for the LGBTQ+ community, they want that without exploitation or profit being made off of a group of which they’re not a part. But sometimes it’s hard to tell where the line is drawn.

Luckily, this new case with Omar Apollo isn’t as complicated. An account tweeted: “is omar apollo another queerbaiting singer? like those type ‘i don’t label myself let me wear cropped and paint my nails and i say i find another guy hot’ cuz i like his song but i don’t like supporting straight men doing queerbating.” Apollo quote-tweeted with a simple answer: “no i b sucking dick fr.” He then added in a thread: “from the back”

So it’s a good thing we’ve cleared that up. Apollo’s career has been growing exponentially this year, and it looks like nothing will stop that. He just received his first Grammy nomination, for Best New Artist, alongside Anitta, Domi & JD Beck, Latto, Måneskin, Molly Tuttle, Muni Long, Samara Joy, Tobe Nwigwe, and Wet Leg.

Well damn Omar, don't tease me with a good time. All jokes aside, I'm so sick and tired of these new age queens who act like judge, jury and executioner when it comes to who is and isn't queer.

No one died and made any of you no-life having heifers the LGBTLMNOP police.

This is the same stunt these trolls pulled when they accused Heartstopper actor Kit Connor of queerbaiting, to which he ended up having to be forced out of the closet and declare his bisexuality.

Omar has never shied away from expressing his queerness, and if you actually listened to his music, particularly his recent album Ivory, which is good, by the way, you would know that.

Plus musically he's been compared to Frank Ocean and Prince, and he worked with queer architect/DJ Alberto Bustamante on the album's artwork.

So please stop policing people's bodies and sexual interests, because sexual attraction is not something you can easily pick out of a line up.
