I appreciated it from a standpoint of, you know, Mike is someone who has never tried to be perfect. He is someone who has learned from this journey of life. He’s one of the people who is so smart.

A 12-year-old. They don’t have sh-t figured out yet,” Boosie blasted. He instructed Dwyane, “Like, bruh, for real, if he gonna be gay, let him be gay. Don’t dress him as a woman, dawg. He’s 12 years old. He’s not up there yet. He hasn’t made his final decisions yet.”

Do you think there’s a possibility you might be a homosexual and if you disrespect them it furthers yourself from being a homosexual? You may like homosexuals.” Boosie mentioned he was “straight as an arrow,” after which Mike requested him “if you’re straight then why do you offend people?”
Boosie replied, “I really commented on the Dwyane Wade situation because I got offended because it’s a child. That’s really why I got offended,” and added if it had been and 18 or 19-year-old he in all probability wouldn’t have mentioned something. “I just felt like at 12, a child can’t make that decision. That’s just how I feel.” Mike then mentioned despite the fact that he felt the identical means, “Who the f**k am I to say anything. What I think don’t mean a motherf**king thing.” Mike then requested, “Who the f**k are we to make a comment about somebody’s life? Who are you?” Boosie then replied “I said it and I stand on what I say.” Well, at the least Mike went there with Boosie and tried to motive with him that it’s not his place to overtly name out another person’s life choices like that.
