Should we care?

Desiigner is the latest rapper who has to fight one of the grosser subsections of hip-hop fandom. After a video of the rapper dancing with transgender woman Sidney Starr became meme fodder, the rapper had to push back against people trying to trash talk him for dancing with the trans woman.

Unfortunately, it looks like Desiigner holds similarly regressive views about the trans community — at least that’s what we’re getting from this defense video he posted to social media.

“Now they trying to make a joke of me, you know what I’m saying? Put these videos up,” he said. “I didn’t even know that was a f*cking dude. We were at a party, man. They came up to me. I’m celebrity, man. Get your clout, man. Get your clout off that sh*t.
