Is D.C. Rapper Wale into men? That’s what the folks over at IndustryOnBlast are suggesting after they published a picture of a man that looks like Wale laying in bed with another men. The suspect image includes a caption that provides some context to what appears in the frame.
“My cousin has been dealing with Wale off and on for three years. [Wale] flew him up to D.C. last summer and we all went out to Stadium and a few other places. [My cousin] stopped hearing from him and all of a sudden he post his new baby on his page. The tea is my cousin is a guy. [Wale] really should be ashamed, he’s living a lie and really foul out here. But then again it’s probably why he’s always paranoid and on edge.”
The caption accompanied by the photograph forced Wale to take to Twitter and respond, saying folks “believe anything.”
Kill.. y’all wild af and believe anything . Some of y’all want some drama so bad you’ll settle for a fake one if it’ll create convo.
— Wale (@Wale) February 7, 2017
Speaking of believing anything … whose story do you believe? Folks on Twitter overwhelmingly side with Wale, tweeting their support and denouncing the folks responsible for starting the rumor. “Lies get more respect than the truth. So the closed minded people believe any and all of the hype,” one person wrote. “Rumors are like cancer … they spread rapidly … don’t care who or what gets destroyed. SMH,” another Twitter user commented.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract
Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.
Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four and clarified what really happened.
“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained. “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”
H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”
After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”
She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.
They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
