T.I. Does Not Care About Gay Marriage


Rapper T.I. was asked about gay marriage on Hot 97 yesterday, just two days after fellow hip-hop artist Jay-Z said he agrees with President Obama on granting full marriage rights to same-sex couples.

The response is far more tepid:

"I don't care. I don't see what the big deal is, why some people are so against it. Why would you be so against it if it doesn't affect you or your lifestyle? I'm not in that world and it doesn't affect me if they did or they didn't... I don't care enough one way or another.

If something doesn't affect you, you should not take a strong position against it."

Unless perhaps if the impact hurts others.

T.I. has previously said he thinks celebrities should be able to speak out against gay rights without being "shut down."
