Lakeith Stanfield apologizes for freestyle with homophobic lyrics https://t.co/1bxtF4PowL— Variety (@Variety) June 27, 2018
Uses the excuse that it's a 'character' and he doesn't believe what he said, that he's not homophobic - “That wasn’t my intention — to be somebody that was out here just slinging arrows and hurting people, so I want them to know that I apologize that they had to feel sadness from that. So my sincerest apologies.”

I'm glad he and his characters are having that conversation. It's time 🙄 Now have a conversation about respecting black women.
