Christian rapper Bizzle gets death threats for ‘Same Love (A response)’ about gays

Rapper Bizzle is ruffling more than a few feathers with his musical response to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ Same Love.

Bizzle Christian rap aristTaking shots at the tune normalizing homosexuality, Bizzle’s own song, titled Same Love (A Response), has apparently angered some people so much that the performer is receiving death threats.

“It’s funny how the media portrays things, they’re really pushing hard for this gay thing, and it’s so wicked how they manipulate things. Can’t even disagree without them making it a hate thing,” he raps at the beginning of the tune.

“People telling (me) things like, ‘oh I’m gonna chop your body up and send it to your family,’” the rapper told KRIV-TV.

“And I feel so disrespected that you were so desperate you would compare your sexual habits to my skin, calling it the new black,” Bizzle raps. “Tell me where they do that. They hung us like tree ornaments. Where were you at? … Ever been murdered just for trying to learn how to read bro? … You can play straight, we can never play white.”

Bizzle setup a website to show what he believes is hypocrisy, posting social media comments that have resulted following his response to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. It’s at LettheToleranceBegin.com.

The comments are shocking.

“When I propose my beliefs, just respect them the same way supposed to respect you. I just tweeted yesterday, if you see me out with a woman who is not my wife, I expect you to check me on it,” he told KRIV-TV. “Because I’m Bizzle and I rap, I don’t get to be out cheating on my wife, and get a pass. As brothers and sisters in Christ we hold ourselves, we hold each other accountable.”
