Omar Apollo denies ‘Queerbaiting Singer’ singer allegations
From Harry Styles to Cardi B, a lot of artists have had to deal with charges of queerbaiting. Fans appreciate it when celebrities show solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community, but they don’t appreciate it when that solidarity is used to exploit or benefit from a demographic from which the celebrities themselves are excluded. However, discerning the boundary is not always easy.
Thankfully, Omar Apollo’s new case is much simpler. “is omar apollo another queerbaiting singer? like those type ‘i don’t label myself let me wear cropped and paint my nails and i say i find another guy hot’ cuz i like his song but i don’t like supporting straight men doing queerbating.” To which Apollo replied,“no i b sucking dick fr.” and further tweeted “from the back 💯”
It’s a relief that we were able to sort that out. As far as anyone can tell, nothing can slow down Apollo’s meteoric rise to fame this year. Along with Anitta, Domi & JD Beck, Latto, Måneskin, Molly Tuttle, Muni Long, Samara Joy, Tobe Nwigwe, and Wet Leg, he just won his first Grammy nomination, for Best New Artist.
