Must See: Mike Tyson Stuns Lil Boosie: Asks Rapper If it’s Possible He’s ‘A Homosexual’ / WATCH

Mike Tyson – Lil Boosie

*Poor Lil Boosie. Like they say on the streets, he ain’t see it comin’. No he didn’t. Dude had no clue that Mike Tyson, of all people, was gonna blow his mind.

All Tyson did was brilliantly ask the Louisiana rapper something that social media has been asking him for years,  but of course it was never to his face and it came via a physical force that’s also intimidating.

Anyway, Lil Boosie, as you know (if you follow him) has VERY STRONG opinions on gay and transgender people. Remember the incident not too long ago where damn near demanded that  Dwyane Wade not cut off his son-now daughter’s penis.

With no hesitation, Tyson incisively and quietly  asked Boosie is it possible he is a “homosexual” and that is why he lashes out.

Boosie stuttered a bit before answering.

Below is the full interview followed by some of the Twitter reactions.

*If you haven’t heard, rapper Offset was almost arrested while live-streaming himself driving through a pro-Trump rally on Saturday.

Yep, the guy who’s currently married to Cardi B, was pulled over by Beverly Hills police after he drove through a crowd of Trump supporters and allegedly waved a handgun.

Beverly Hills police surrounded Offset’s vehicle with guns drawn. He refused orders to take his hand off his steering wheel and turn off the engine.

Offset: “I’m not finna do that.”

Cop: “Why not?”

“Because you got guns out. I’m not finna move my hands from my steering wheel.”

Offset live-streamed the traffic stop, telling police “Do you know who I am? I’m Offset from the Migos!”

Here’s another view.

When a female officer told him he was seen waving a gun in the air, Offset said, “You just watched somebody beat my car up with a flag. What are you talking about?”

Another officer approached the car, reached in the driver’s side window and unlocked the car door. The officer then snatched Offset out of the vehicle. We’ve learned that he was only detained and eventually released.

Beverly Hills police also confirmed they detained a man for pointing a gun at Trump supporters.

Apparently they man they arrested for possession of a concealed loaded weapon is Marcelo Almanzar, Cardi B’s cousin.
