He took to Twitter to dismiss those rumors and give these media outlets a piece of his mind and to the “haters” the finger...
“Prensa Amarillista y Haters ‘No hablen de mí que soy muy sentimental’ bwajajaja!!”
The speculation and rumor started spreading after a photo circulated with a man resembling Daddy Yankee kissing another man and a statement supposedly confirming he’s gay, speculations arose about the rapper’s sexual orientation.
Now the Los Angeles Times is reporting that Daddy Yankee’s publicist, Mayna Nevarez, issued a statement refuting that the singer never actually acknowledged he was gay...
“Online blogs and social media are once again to blame for the spread of false news reports, which other media outlets have also shared regarding a public figure. The reports circulating regarding Daddy Yankee’s declaration of homosexuality was falsely written by an online outlet known for fabricating false information and spreading it through social media sites.”
Daddy Yankee was asked at a press conference about his opinion on gay marriage. The rapper responded in Spanish that,
“I have people on my team who are gay, and I respect them entirely and give them work.”
As for gay marriage, he believes it’s a matter for governments and religious figures to settle, taking full regard of human rights.
