Rapper Travis Scott made some truly heinous remarks while performing live for fans in March 2015, and now he’s apologizing to the LGBT community for using homophobic slurs and claims he is not a homophobe.
After performing with Justin Bieber, 21, and other mainstream artists, Travis Scott, 23, seemed like he was about to have a major breakthrough. However, a concert video has emerged of him making some nasty remarks that could deeply offend the gay community. The “3500” rapper has now taken to Twitter to apologize for his using homophobic slurs and vows to never “disrespect” the LGBT community again.
The rapper made the comments when he felt dissatisfied with the audience’s energy at one of his shows. “I ain’t cool with none of you f*ggots who just sitting here looking like a bunch of queers,” he was recorded saying to the crowd.
After those remarks became public, Travis gave a long apology on his Twitter. He tweeted, “AT MY SHOWS I GET A LIL TURNT UP. SORRY FOR THAT BUT NEVER WILL I EVER DISRESPECT THAT COMMUNITY.” He followed up with, “THANKS BEING SAID MY APOLOGIES TO ANYONE THATS OFFENDED. MY WORDS WERENT OUT OF BAD MEANING AND IN NO DISRESPECT.” Well, at least he took the time to apologize.

This is hardly the first time Travis has gotten into trouble for comments he’s made at a concert. The Houston born rapper was performing at Lollapalooza this summer when he called on his fans to rush past security and onto the stage. His performance was quickly shut down after his remarks, and Travis was overheard chanting at the audience, “We want rage,” as the situation got out of hand. Travis was arrested for the incident and charged with disorderly conduct.
