Twitter is mad at Saucy Santana, again, this time for comments about women
Rashad Spain, better known by his stage name Saucy Santana, is a former makeup artist for hip-hop duo City Girls and began his music career in February 2019 with the release of his debut single “Walk Em Like A Dog”. Santana gained further fame through a few stints on reality TV and after some of her 2021 singles became popular on TikTok. Now it’s going viral again, but not in the way he hoped.
Last weekend, the openly gay rapper performed at a block party for the show Juneteenth/Pride in Dallas, and between songs, Santana decided to salute gay people.
“Once for the LGT in this female dog, ’cause I want you to know that gays run the fucking world,” he said. “When these hoes need their hair done, they call the gays. When these bitches need a stylist, they call the fucking gays. When these hoes need their fucking faces done, they call the fucking When your asshole baby daddy breaks your ass, you need advice, you call the fuckin’ gays Because we’re this bitch’s fucking plan.
Santana also added that he keeps him in the gay men’s rap game. His comments went viral and Twitter was not happy, to say the least. Many commentators have accused him of being misogynistic, writing that women don’t need gay men to teach them how to be women.
Saucy Santana takes the stage and says women NEED gay men…to teach us women…how to be women…that’s wild

Santana said what a lot of gay people feel and that women wouldn’t be shit without them. They forget that they got their behavior and their mannerisms from us and that’s why I’m not for allowing them to be in front of conversations centered on us women.

Men who believe that women are stupid, lack creativity and are unable to function without their guidance is nothing new. Men who believe that women are nothing more than ornamental are nothing new. Disdain for women is NOT NEW. I don’t know why y’all are shocked at Saucy Santana. Misogyny been here

Some Twitter users wrote that as a man, Santana was just another part of a bigger problem.
Gay men like naughty Santana are very disrespectful to women. It’s time for women to realize this and have a discussion to move forward. Having homosexuals around you is not the solution. We call straight men and no longer let gay people get a pass. They need to leave ASAP

Saucy Santana is proof that gay women can be misogynistic too

Let #SaucySantana to be a reminder to all of you that gay and queer men can in FACT be misogynistic!

Some have come to Santana’s defense, however, deducing that he didn’t actually say anything misogynistic, but was merely describing the role of gay men in women’s lives and that the rapper was just a bit, well, sassy.
Saucy Santana never said anything about women on this stage. He said PEOPLE and was more than likely referring to the industry. Once again, you are all homophobic. Next topic. https://t.co/9aGqdeFgTn

Santana didn’t respond directly to the critics, but he did retweet a video of himself talking about gay roles in show business, and how the fact that they’re barely seen in the foreground is what drives him to to succeed.

This backlash comes just months after Santana was lambasted for resurfacing old comments he made about the music’s first child, Blue Ivy, who (as if we had to clarify) is the daughter of Beyoncé and Jay Z. In 2014, Santana posted messages calling Blue Ivy a “nappy head” and saying she was prettier than her mother, as reported Billboard.
Those tweets have since been deleted, but the screenshots haven’t been buried and circulated online disapproving of Beyoncé’s fans. On June 10, before a show in Beyoncé’s hometown of Houston, no less, Santana fired back at her fan base via Twitter: “Fake Woke ass bitches!!!! People don’t care about old tweets” , he wrote.
He also tweeted about cancel culture: “It’s the people in the comments…trying to force you to apologize or apologize,” he wrote. “To whom?! To all of you?! If I did something to offend anyone, I should apologize to them!!!! Not you bitches.”
We don’t know if Beyhive is the source of her latest controversy, but hell ain’t got no fury as a Beyoncé fan.
