With all the social media controversy about Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star Milan Christopher’s relationship on Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, VH1 has produced a new special about homosexuality in the hip hop community, premiering this Monday, October 19, and it will feature our own Big Freedia!
The LHH: Out In Hip Hop special is set to feature some big names in hip hop and journalism such as DMC, Ray J, Karamo Brown, Cakes da Killa, and more. It will be a candid, honest discussion about the important topic of being gay in a community that may not welcome you.
In case you haven’t been in the Love & Hip Hop loop this season, the controversy started when there were reports that the rest of the cast (specifically Ray J and Omarion) wasn’t happy with the addition of Milan, who is the first cast member of the show to be openly gay.
Essentially, he and Miles have had a tumultuous relationship whose problems trace back to the fact that Miles is still in in the closet, and is currently struggling to come out to his friends and family. The entire situation has caused a whirlwind of controversy on social media. Some fans of the show aren’t happy with this storyline for various reasons:
