Atlanta rapper Gunna faces some backlash from rapper Baby Tate, her fans and the LGBTQ+ community on Friday morning (Jan. 7). After the release of his new studio album DS4EVER, fans rushed to listen to the project, and when they got to his “Thought I Was Playing” collaboration with 21 Savage, many misheard his lyrics and believed he disapproved of transgender people.

“These guys a bunch of p***ies, they’re just a trend,” Gunna raps on the song, according to the lyrics page on Genius. However, Baby Tate and hundreds of others thought Gunna was saying “These guys a bunch of p***ies, they’re nothing but a trans” which would have been ridiculously inappropriate to say in the chorus to one of the most anticipated songs .

“Couldn’t you find anything else to say?” asked Baby Tate in a tweet. “This man has been using derogatory LGBT words in his music for so long and I’m tired of it.”

Fans of the up-and-coming rapper supported her, but it was revealed shortly after that she may have misheard the lyrics.

“You won’t stop me from standing up for the trans community,” said Baby Tate as people began to challenge her for her mistake. “You all did the same thing when I yelled at uzi. If the tweet causes more transphobia I will delete it, but I still believe I heard what I heard and he was wrong when he said that. I will always stand up for the LGBT community. Idc.”
