Saucy Santana recently opened up about his fears about parenthood in a forthcoming sitdown with VH1.
The outlet shared a snippet of the interview from their ‘For The Fellas’ podcast with Devale Ellis, Mack Wilds, and Brian McIntosh. The episode featuring Santana doesn’t air until Dec. 15. However, it started gaining traction online, given the preview topic.
In the short clip posted to VH1’s social platforms, Saucy addressed his concerns about his future son’s sexuality.
“I think for me, just being honest, I’m just worried about how to raise a kid and just me being gay, and I feel like if I have a son, I wouldn’t want my son to be gay. Not because nothing is wrong with it, but because of everything that I went through.”
Online critics have targeted Saucy in online criticisms since the start of his rap career in February 2019. Most of the backlash primarily stems from his sexuality and his feminine fashion choices.
Before eating the streaming charts up with hits like ‘Walk ‘Em Like A Dog’ and ‘Material Girl,’ Saucy Santana became an internet fave for his live-stream commentary. He often appeared ready with the jokes on Instagram Live with the City Girls’ Yung Miami.
