In the past few weeks, rumors about Daddy Yankee’s sexuality have been surfacing, though none of them have been consistent. One said he “came out” during a press conference and another said he was spotted in a gay club. Well DY has gone on record to officially clear the air, telling his fans that he is “100 percent straight.”

Taking to Twitter, El Big Boss spoke openly and criticized those who believe everything they read on the web.

“Once again, ignorance has come into play,” he said. “The internet is where lies become truths and the truth becomes myth.”

And don’t take Daddy’s statement to mean he’s critical of the gay lifestyle. Last month he spoke about accepting all people, regardless of their sexual preferences.

“I have people on my team who are gay and I respect them,” he told the Spanish press.
