Caresha Faces Backlash

Yung Miami seems to have good intentions with her upcoming drop. Last summer, she revealed she is bisexual during an interview on The Jason Lee Show. She is also besties with openly gay rapper Saucy Santana. However, she received pushback from fans following the reveal. Many of them mentioned a since-deleted homophobic tweet Miami put up in 2013 where she wrote, "Boy oh boy if I ever see any type of gay s**t in my son Imma beat that boy so baddd." She later apologized for the tweet but people have not forgotten.

"She the same person that said she would beat her son if he was gay?" one person responded to the post.

"Stop using gayness as an accessory [vomit emoji]," another Twitter user opined.

"You must be down bad if you gotta invoke the same community of people you’d beat your child if they were a part of… nasty work," another post reads.
