Wiz Khalifa caused a stir on Twitter after his recent interview with “The Breakfast Club” where he comments that straight men eating bananas is “suspicious.”

“If you bite a banana, you sus,” the rapper says at the start of the interview with no context. “N***as gotta break the banana in half.”

“Why? It’s just a fruit,” host Charlamagne tha God replies.

“I’m just trying to help you out bro. If you in public and you eating a banana, you gotta break it into pieces,” Khalifa says.

People took Khalifa’s comments as homophobic and took to Twitter slam his fruit advice.

Out rapper MNEK also weighed in saying that he had a real experience with not wanting to eat bananas because he didn’t want to appear gay.
