Rap artist Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., better known by his stage name T.I., thinks gay folks are too sensitive.

T.I., the founder of Grand Hustle Records and star of MTV's reality series T.I.'s Road to Redemption, said in a Vibe cover story titled T.I. Wants You Back that he supports gay rights, but then went on to defend comedian Tracy Morgan's homophobic rant and suggested that gay activists are the real bullies.

“Man, I will say this, the funniest joke I ever heard Tracy say during a stand-up was, 'C'mon man, I think gay people are too sensitive. If you can take a dick, you can take a joke.'”

“That shit was funny to me,” T.I. said. “And it's kind of true.”

“They're like, 'If you have an opinion against us, we're gonna shut you down.' … That's not American. If you're gay you should have the right to be gay in peace, and if you're against it you should have the right to be against it in peace.”

The issue hits newstands on December 6.
