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.
Wiz trying to explain why men should break a banana in half and eat it in pieces is the height of homophobia and fragile masculinity and patriarchy. How insecure/ignorant/hateful you gotta be to see a fruit as a d in the mouth? pic.twitter.com/DgaoX8L7Ig

There are people in my mentions mad at me but Im not the one cancelling a delicious fruit because It’s “gay.” I’m a wiz fan guys, but this is corny and yeah…homophobic. And I’m worried about his potassium intake.

Now I know why @wizkhalifa looks like he needs potassium. If you are too homophobic to eat bananas, at least take a supplement.
