The man behind the story causing a social media frenzy about Bobby Shmurda and his sexual orientation has spoken out and apologized for creating the stir.
"I owe everybody an explanation but most importantly I owe an apology to Bobby Shmurda and his fans," wrote Raza. "I'm sorry for everything that's going on and confusion I have caused anyone this past weekend. That was NOT me in the video. What was meant to be a harmless joke, shook the internet. I never thought my post would go viral and it was never my intention to mislead anyone."
"I wanted to clear my name and put an end to this rumor," he added. "I know what it's like to be bullied for being gay, I would never want to put that on anyone else... I was not doing this for clout and would never want to 'expose' or hurt anyone."

Bobby Shmurda took to social media to respond to the claims that the recent video circulating social media shows him in bed with two men. Bobby claims the video and accompanying narrative are set in place to derail his upcoming tour and "sabotage" his EP. In one of the two posts Bobby made in response to the matter, he wrote "When the hate don't work they start telling lies," which apparently signals a supposed falsity in what's being said about him.

An LGBTQ man on social nicknamed "Xavier Raza" recently indicated that he was one of two people laying in bed with New York rapper Bobby Shmurda in a video clip that is making its rounds on social media. Xavier reportedly uploaded the footage on his Facebook page with a revealing caption that read, "I'm mad shy but Bobby loves meee."
The video is inconclusive because the two people who appear to be in bed with Bobby Shmurda are covering their faces, while the New York-based rapper is positioned in between as he says a few words for the camera. But if Xavier's claims about this video clip are confirmed at some point, it will have come nearly seven months after another rapper by the name of Isaiah Rashad was involuntarily outed in a viral video with two men.
