Tokyo Vanity is the latest reality television star whose homophobia has been put on blast after she made some questionable comments about “hidden messages” in today’s children programming, claiming that they are “persuading children to be gay.”
According to Twitter, the fan-favorite Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta reality star recently lost her “cool card” after she took to her Instagram live story to spew some hateful and ignorant comments about the LGBT community.
During a random broadcast she discussed how, in her opinion, today’s cartoons have a lot of “gay s**t” that persuades children to “become” gay, themselves.
Tokyo Vanity should have kept that to her self because Twitter is draggin her for the carless and uneducated statement about today’s televised programming agenda.
Tokyo Vanity could have literally just sat there and eat her food 😩

In attempt to mask her homophobia, she followed up her statement with saying that she believes one is born gay, before carrying on to further contradict herself by making claims that cartoons influence children to “subscribe” to the community.
“With children now, all their cartoons got this gay s**t and girl on girl, and guy on guy, and this and that,” she said while her friend, in the background, attempted to provide examples. “It’s too persuasive now almost as if they’re trying to persuade children and brainwash children, like to be that. Like, gay is a sexuality. Like, it’s something that’s just in you. I believe you was born that way, you know what I’m saying? But TV really be brainwashing [children].”
UGH, make it make sense?
