Lil B admits he's transphobic: "my heart hurts because I have been cruel to people"
Last night, rapper Lil B tweeted a joke at the expense of transgender people from his popular Twitter account.
I might start saying I'm trans and I'm a woman so I can be in the girls Locker room with the ladies !!!!!! No homo I'm still growin - Lil B— Lil B From The Pack (@LILBTHEBASEDGOD) July 27, 2015
He faced an immediate backlash from Twitter users who said the tweet was transphobic.

Lil B followed up with a series of tweets in which he apologized and told his fans he is uncomfortable with the idea of transitioning and wants to become more accepting.
