Joe Budden’s ‘I Like Guys & Girls’ Comment Clarified + His Ex Tahiry Jose Reacts: He May Be A Woman Beater But He’s Far From Bisexual
Update #1 (Nov. 5): Joe Budden did not come out as bisexual.
A full clip of his podcast has been released, showing that his words were taken out of context.
Ahead of the portion that went viral, Joe Budden and his podcast hosts were discussing the latest reports surrounding DaBaby and the homophobic remarks he made earlier this summer. As previously reported, an LGBTQ organization, Relationship Unleashed, appeared to forgive the rapper and give him the green light to perform again after he sat down with dozens of LGBTQ groups who educated him on his problematic comments. (Relationship Unleashed later clarified and said its statements were “grossly misquoted.”)
On The Joe Budden Podcast, co-host Ish asked,
“We gotta get okayed by the gays to perform?”
Joe Budden sarcastically reacts,
“How do I spread this news? How do I spread the word? Listen, I like guys and girls. Spread the word. I’m down. I’ve seen enough.”
See it around the 53:00 mark.
Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend Kaylin Garcia responded. She wrote on Instagram,
“I knew it, happy for him.”
Another former girlfriend Tahiry Jose shared her thoughts on social media.
She reiterated her previous claims of abuse against Joe Budden and wrote,
“Joey May be a women beater but far from Bi… and Vado better stop calling , DM’ing me and popping up to my old crib. I’m jus sayin”
