The Weeknd Accused Of Homophobic Lyrics In New Song

Written by Jackson Langford on January 12, 2019

The Weeknd has found himself in some controversy after the release of his collaboration with producer Gesaffelstein, ‘Lost In The Fire’, with some citing that some of his lyrics are homophobic.

The lyrics in question centre around a pretty explicit couple of lines in the second verse, where The Weeknd sings “you’re going through a phase” and “i can f*ck you straight.”

People on the Internet never miss a beat, and these lyrics are certainly questionable to say the least. Naturally, people have taken to calling him out for it.

Neither The Weeknd or Gesaffelstein have yet to comment on this.
