Openly gay rapper Le1f took to Twitter last night to address criticism over allegations of transphobia from the Twitterverse.

Le1f, who has been praised for his subversive work as a queer artist in a traditionally homophobic music genre, seems to have been set off by this tweet:

This led him to unleash to following tirade on on the Twitterverse:

This isn't the first time Le1f has taken to Twitter to sound off issues surrounding his role as a gay rapper in the LGBT community. In late August, he blasted Macklemore for allegedly ripping off his song "Wut."

Additionally, he called Macklemore out over the success of same-sex marriage anthem "Same Love," slamming him for benefiting, as a straight man, from a video focused on a gay relationship. "That time that straight white dude ripped off my song then made a video about gay interracial love and made a million dollars," Le1f wrote in a series of now-deleted tweets.
