PSA: Just because a young 5-year-old boy loves Taylor Swift does not mean he’s gay.
That’s the announcement Amber Rose made on Wednesday after social media users made harsh allegations that her 5-year-old son, Sebastian, likes boys.
The barrage of hateful messages initially started after Rose shared a video of her son jumping for joy over a pair of Taylor Swift tickets and letter the singer sent him.
Proud of the moment, Amber shared what was supposed to be a joyous occasion on her social platform; but instead, it turned into a firestorm of inappropriate comments.
Defending her son, whom she shares with rapper Wiz Khalifa, Rose posted a series of messages addressing the “hyper masculine men and ignorant dumb ass women that will call a five-year-old gay for liking Taylor Swift.”
She continued, “This is why young kids kill themselves and this is also why our society is f*cked up. Liking a certain type of music will not make you ‘pick’ your sexuality you dumb f*cks.”
Rose went on to suggest that she and Wiz “allow him to be himself. He can listen to whatever music he likes, he can like whatever color he wants and we let him be passionate about whatever his little heart desires.”
The model, who once got attacked for letting her son wear nail polish, added, “We don’t make our son live by society norms that’s why he’s so special … regardless if he’s gay or straight when he gets older he will be around the most amazing living people that will support him no matter what.”
