A member of US hip-hop trio Migos has come under fire after using homophobic lyrics in a new song.

Rapper Offset, real name Kiari Cephus, has been slammed online after delivering the line ‘I cannot vibe with queers’ on YFN Lucci’s track ‘Boss Life’, in which he features as a solo artist.

British singer MNEK was among the many to slam Offset online, pointing out that the rapper is happy to sport clothing made by gay designers.

“Offset saying he doesn’t vibe with queers while constantly wearing and PARADING clothes by gay designers is the REAL gag,” the ‘Never Forget You’ singer tweeted on Thursday (January 18).

“All i’m saying is if you’re a homophobe say it with your chest. ‘So Offset, no more Versace, Tom Ford. YSL? don’t know what that is. Marc Jacobs? who’s that?

British singer MNEK was among those to slam 

“your new attire shall be Sports Directs’ finest – seeing as you don’t vibe with the designers above!”

Offset isn’t the first member of Migos to come out with homophobic remarks.

Fellow member Quavo – who collaborated with Liam Payne on his debut single ‘Strip That Down’ last year – was forced to apologise after saying the world was “f**ked up” for supporting rapper iLoveMakonnen, who had recently come out as gay.
