Rumors have been swirling for months that Young Thug is Hip Hop’s first openly gay trap rapper, thanks to his painted fingernails, overly effeminate attire and his penchant for calling close male friends his “babes” and “lovers.”
Earlier this week, the Atlanta rap weirdo did nothing to help his situation by Instagramming a photo of himself and fellow ATL rapper Rich Homie Quan in which he referred to Quan as his “hubbie.” (Not to mention those neon painted fingernails. HEY GIRL!)
Of course Twitter lit up with responses and questions surrounding Thugger’s sexuality have returned with a vengeance:

Charlamagne Tha God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee discussed the situation on the “Breakfast Club” yesterday and asked their listening audience if they thought it was acceptable for “straight” men to call other “straight” men bae or hubbie.
So the question remains … do YOU think it’s acceptable for “straight” men to call their best friends “bae” or “hubbie?”
