UPDATE: Migos have seen responded….that can be read below.

Artists, artists, artists: you really need to be careful (ie. politically-correct) with what you say in today’s times. Rolling Stone recently released an interview with Migos, of which the below excerpt — which sees them responding to ILOVEMAKONNEN’s coming out of the closet — is taken:

All are wildly different MCs, illustrating the “diversity” that Quavo says is one of the things he most loves about Atlanta. And so I’m surprised by Migos’ reaction when I mention iLoveMakonnen, the local MC who just came out as gay on Twitter. “Damn, Makonnen!” Quavo bellows after an awkward interlude. I mention support I saw online for Makonnen’s decision. “They supported him?” Quavo asks, raising an eyebrow. “That’s because the world is fucked up,” says Offset. “This world is not right,” Takeoff says. “We ain’t saying it’s nothing wrong with the gays,” says Quavo. But he suggests that Makonnen’s sexuality undermines his credibility, given the fact that “he first came out talking about trapping and selling Molly, doing all that.”

He frowns. “That’s wack, bro.”

As expected, social media has responded accordingly. In related news, Atlanta star Keith Sanfield (who’s also a rapper, so there’s that) dissed Migos in a now-deleted tweet:

Obviously, this is a bit odd given the enormous amount of praise that fellow Atlanta star Donald Glover gave to the trio during a recent awards show. Hopefully, he’ll elaborate more on that soon.
