On Sunday, Cudi spewed out a series of venomous tweets aimed at those who opposed the LGBT community in light of the monstrosity that took place in Orlando. “My heart and prayers go out to the LGBT community and everyone affected by this tragedy. Really upset today,” he wrote.

“I wish there was more I could do than tweet, build awareness and donate money. Thats not enough. Not for me.”

“IF YOU ARE AN INSECURE HOMOPHOBE AND HAVE A ISSUE WITH GAYS AND EQUALITY, UNFOLLOW ME NOW. THANK YOU,” he said. Cudi, known for being a boisterous artist, has never shied away from speaking his mind. In fact, Cudi continued to throw darts at those who were against his views. “God hates no one. Peace chump. We dont need you,” he wrote before punctuating his efforts with a middle finger emoji.
