Is Daddy Yankee Gay? — Rapper’s Rep Refutes Rumors
“Online blogs and social media are once again to blame for the spread of false news reports, which other media outlets have also shared regarding a public figure,” said Mayna Nevarez, president of public relations firm Nevarez Communications. Mayna continues, saying that one unreliable website’s report gained steam through social media, but not on merit: “The reports circulating regarding Daddy Yankee’s declaration of homosexuality was falsely written by an online outlet known for fabricating false information and spreading it through social media sites.”
The rumors around Daddy Yankee really took off on Apr. 3 when several Spanish-speaking websites posted stories with a picture of a man who looked like the rapper, kissing another man. The stories claimed that the rapper had released a statement officially coming out. However, fans remained skeptical and many pointed out that there were minor physical differences between Daddy Yankee and the man in the picture.
Daddy Yankee Condemns Rumors On Twitter
Both Daddy Yankee and his rep have been quick to squash what they say is a false story. Besides Mayna’s statement, Daddy Yankee also posted a quote — in Spanish — from Albert Einstein saying, “I fear the day when technology overlaps humanity. It will be then that the world will have permanent ensuing generations of idiots.”
A pretty appropriate quote for the situation — sounds like Daddy Yankee is upset about the rumors!
