Hip hop artist and actor Kid Cudi, real name Scott Mescudi, tweeted a message of support to the LGBTQIA+ community following the gun massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida on Sunday morning.
While most of his followers responded with positive messages, agreeing with the rapper's sentiments, there were also people who questioned his support of the LGBT+ community.
When Twitter user @pdwomoh90 wrote that "God hates" the LGBT+ community and that Kid Cudi "lost a fan", the rapper responded quickly, saying that "God hates no one":
Unfazed by the criticism, Cudi went on to address anyone who may hold similar views, tweeting:
Cudi then encouraged his fans to donate blood, and shared Anderson Cooper's powerful tribute to the victims of the massacre. Thanking the fans who supported his stance on equality, Cudi added that he wants to go "out of [his] way" to make the hip hop community more vocal about LGBT+ rights.
