Singer and reality TV star Ray J called on straight men to support the LGBTQ+ community in a new statement. Taking to his Instagram on 6 June, the Love & Hip Hop star uploaded a 12-minute video message to celebrate Pride Month. “I’m on my way to work, and I just decided to come on live and give all my gay people, my gay brothers, my gay sisters give them all they flowers,” he said.

The One Wish singer then said he has “nothing but love” for the community before highlighting the array of LGBTQ+ people who work within the entertainment industry.

He then shifted his focus to straight men and expressed the importance of solidarity and acceptance.  “A lot of n****s that’s straight they don’t be trying to shout out to the gay community and all my gay n****s the right way,” he said.  “Listen, I just wanna say that it’s gay pride month.
