London: Rapper 50 Cent has defended his controversial post on Twitter.com, which said that gay men should commit suicide and is adamant he wasn`t making an "anti-gay statement".
"If you (are) a man and your (sic) over 25 and you don`t eat pu**y just kill yourself damn it. The world will be a better place," a news daily quoted him as writing on Twitter the earlier day.
The Rapper was criticised by his followers for the remark but he explained the post and insisted that the comment was misinterpreted.
"The other night I made a joke about a b**w job. My male followers enjoyed it. So I then went on to joke about women receiving the same.
"Somehow they turned a simple joke about oral sex into an anti-gay statement. I have nothing against people who choose an alternative lifestyle; in fact I`ve publicly stated my mum loved women. It`s funny how people think negative statements are newsworthy but positive statements are not worthy of coverage," he added.
