AceShowbiz - Tank's recent interview has gotten a lot of people convinced he comes out of the closet, and the R&B singer-songwriter apparently has all the time to respond to their accusation. However, instead of being serious, he has decided to troll them.
In response to a user who said, "U gay asf," Tank wrote in the comment section of one of his Instagram posts, "I'm actually not but your father though? He gotta chill! In my dms going crazy!" There was also someone who expressed how happy s/he was to know the musician had come out, to which the "Maybe I Deserve" replied, "It was a struggle to finally admit that I only like women but I'm glad I did and I'm free now."
During his interview on Angela Yee's "Lip Service" podcast, Tank explained that doing same-sex oral intercourse didn't necessarily make a man gay. "He sucked a d**k once, right? Then, he's like I'm not sure if I liked it or not. Let me try it again, and then he says, 'You know what? It's not for me. Don't like the taste.' See what I'm saying?" He added, "It doesn't mean he's gay. It means he sucked d**k twice. The art of being gay is being gay. It's a continuous state of being."
His statement sparked debate among social media users, with some people believing that what he said was not entirely wrong. Some others, meanwhile, disagreed. There was also one who claimed that Tank was pandering "to the LGBTQIA" by saying that.
Reading the comment, the "Please Don't Go" singer was quick to hit back, "Pandering? So I created the clip that completely misguided everyone in terms of what the conversation really was? So I set myself up to be bashed by everyone who still don't understand my point? Yeah you're real smart for that observation."
