*The LGBT community isn’t the only one upset with “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star Lil Scrappy for mocking transgender people – just as his show announced the addition of its first transgender cast member, D. Smith.
On Tuesday, the rapper posted an IG video ranting about “men with wigs on.” He hashtagged the clip #p***y check.
Scrappy’s mother, Momma Dee, was horrified by his son’s comments and shared her support for the community on IG.
I’m at a lost for words…I raised my son to be a better man than that!!! @theshaderoominc .. to every #Trans person and member of the #lgbt community I apologize on behalf of my child for the hateful things that were said!!! I love you all #TransLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter #TheQueenHasSpoken #LHHATL

“Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” returns to VH1 on April 4.
Below, more on D. Smith, per VH1
D. Smith is a groundbreaking music producer who makes her debut as the first ever transgender female in the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ franchise. This Miami-born, Brooklyn-bred Grammy Award-winning writer turned artist has worked with some of the hottest in the game, including Lil Wayne.
Smith’s defining moment came after being tapped by Lil Wayne to be a part of his most successful project to date ‘The Carter III,’ which sold one million copies in its debut week, one of only three rap albums in history to ever achieve this feat. With her spitfire sidekick and aspiring singer Betty Idol by her side, this dynamic duo will take the Atlanta scene by storm.
