I really hate social media trolls. Trolls are social media users who use their time to bash people (particularly celebrities) by leaving nasty comments. The gag is the same amount of time they’re using to bash people they could secure their bag, pursue their dreams, and actually be happy. Poor unfortunate souls (Ursula voice lol) I’m so silly. But, in all seriousness I really feel for Amber on this one. So her and Wiz’s son Sebastian (Bash, who is adorable by the way) really loves Taylor Swift. He sings when he hears her music because Taylor is crazy but she does have some bops. Today, Taylor sent him a special “Reputation Tour” care package.
“An overjoyed Sebastian opened the gift box with his mom by his side. She filmed the special moment on Instagram, as he smiled in delight. “This is gonna be so exciting,” he cheered before opening the box. “Oh my God. She sent me a letter! Bash later sat in disbelief after opening his box. “Thanks, Taylor,” he said, before realizing what just happened. “Taylor sent me these?” he asked with gleeful surprise.” So sweet right?!
So this sweet gesture from Taylor was tainted with trollish hate.
According to PageSix.com, “After Amber Rose shared footage of her and Wiz Khalifa’s son Sebastian opening a surprise package from Taylor Swift that included VIP tickets, internet trolls started tossing out hateful comments aimed at the 5-year-old. The Slutwalk founder immediately took to her Instagram story to take them down. Shoutout to all the hypermasculine men and dumb ass women that will call a five-year-old gay for liking Taylor Swift,” she wrote. “This is why young kids kill themselves. And this is why our society is so f–ked up.
“Liking a certain type of music will not make you ‘pick’ your sexuality you dumb f–ks,” she continued.
Rose then said her “smart-as-f–k” son had recently been accepted into a “prestigious private school in LA” because he’s “as creative as f–k like his parents.”
“We 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,” she said. “Let’s do better for the next generation people. Grow the f–k up and teach ur kids to love and not hate.
“P.S.S. Regardless if he’s gay or straight when he gets older he will be around the most amazing loving people that will support him no matter what.”
(Claps for Amber). I am really proud of Amber because usually she is in the tabloids for nonsensical things, but this was really endearing to my heart. Everyone knows that a mother has a natural instinct to protect her child. I know that Amber truly loves Bash with all her heart and she wants the best for him. Having strangers call her son ‘gay’ just for liking Taylor Swift’s music has to be the dumbest thing I have ever heard. The world just appointed what is masculine and what is feminine but it is incorrect. Being a black man does not mean you have to like only trap music. Being a black man doesn’t mean you have to sag your jeans all the time or always speak in Ebonics. Being a black man doesn’t mean you can’t be yourself. We need to stop calling these kids ‘gay’ or ‘weird’ for being themselves and just being kids. At five-years-old, you like everything! Dolls, action figures, video games, music, clothes, shoes, etc. Since you are a kid, you don’t know about gender norms and you just want to be yourself. But, society prohibits people especially people of color to be themselves and we are afraid to truly be ourselves. They need to just let this boy live. I remember when I was younger I would drive with my brother and my grandma and my grandma lovessss Sade! Like loves her! So, when she would blast “Sweetest Taboo” I would love it and even my brother would nod his head because it’s a great song. I still love the song to this day and it just brings back feelings of nostalgia. So liking a certain song doesn’t make you less of a man. Being a man is about having integrity, honesty, gratitude, love, supportiveness, intellect, passion, ambition and just a good heart. So don’t ever let something so trivial define your manhood or womanhood. Societal rules can be so annoying sometimes lol.
