Beenie Man: “I Respect Gays And Lesbians” [Video]

Beenie Man is the first dancehall deejay to publicly declare his stance on the heated debate about gays and lesbians.

Yesterday rap mogul Jay-Z support President Obama’s stance on gay marriage in the United States. Now Beenie Man, who is one of many dancehall artistes facing problems with the gay community, has stepped forward to make his stance clear.

In a video posted on Youtube, the “Rum And Redbull” deejay says he is making the statement because the gay community still has beef with him.

“I get to understand that people are still creating problems for me to work,” Beenie Man said. “But let me make this clear and straight. I have nothing against no one. I respect each and every human being, regardless of which race, regardless of which religious belief you have, and regardless of which sexual preference you are, including gays and lesbians.”

Beenie Man laments that his issues with the gay community stems from some songs he did 20 years ago.

“Do not fight against me for some songs I did 20 years ago,” Beenie Man pleads. “There is no one in this world is the same as they were 20 years ago, I know I am not. I was a kid and I come from Waterhouse, which is a small community. I never know what the world is like and what the world is all about. But now I know that people live in this world that live their life differently from my life. I still have to respect and love human beings.”

Beenie Man was one of several reggae/dancehall stars to sign the Reggae Compassionate act in 2007.

    Beeniman is a wise man! A batty man run di WORLD! So if it means to apologize to them and swallow your pride to keep food on your family table, apologize. At the end of the day all the people who will bash Beeniman for this video wont help him get back his visa. And even though he is doing well with his hit songs in Jamaica, the real money is made on tour. I’m homophobic but I’m not oblivious, I live in a Batty man world. Some of the richest people in society are gay, if you try fight them, they’ll get rid of you. All the best Beeniman.
