Vince Staples Won Twitter Again by Eviscerating North Carolina’s Homophobic Legislature news

North Carolina's transgender bathroom law has drawn wide-ranging condemnation from pretty much all corners. Politicians have spoken out about it, as have a whole host of actors, writers, musicians, and everyday normal folks. A few months back, the Justice Department ruled that the law violated Title IX, which protects citizens from education discrimination based on sex. And yet, the law still holds sway.

Last night, Vince Staples decided to join the chorus of those who stand by the LGBTQ community in North Carolina and wish to see the law repealed. As per his wont, the Long Beach rapper took to Twitter to express his thoughts on the matter.

Naturally, because this is social media, some folks took exception to Staples' position.

But Staples is not one to suffer trolls lightly and quickly shut them down.

The law in North Carolina essentially prohibits transgender individuals from using a restroom that fits with their self-identified gender. Aside from a load of bad press, the law has had real consequences for the lawmakers and citizens of the state. Bruce Springsteen canceled one of his concerts there, as did Pearl Jam. Most damaging of all, the NBA decided to move the annual All-Star game in 2017 from North Carolina to New Orleans. The game might return in later years, but not until major changes are made in the N.C. legistlation.
