Radio and TV personality Lenard McKelvey, known professionally as Charlamagne Tha God, recently explained to Larry King his theory on homophobia.

The 34-year-old Charlamagne currently co-hosts syndicated radio show The Breakfast Club with DJ Envy and Angela Yee.

During an appearance on Larry King Now, a fan from New York asked about LGBT acceptance in the rap and hip hop communities.

“I have a theory about homophobia,” Charlamagne answered. “My theory about homophobia is, like, what are you scared of?”

“You're either scared of gay people or you're scared that you may be gay.”

Charlamagne added that he thinks a lot of people are homophobic because of their own insecurities.

“And what I mean by that is, guys we've basically, for lack of a better term, defecated on women for years. Like we've always not shown women any respect. … And I feel like we're afraid of our own karma and afraid that guys are gonna do us like that.” (The video is embedded on this page.
