Fans are in a state of confusion and shock after Jaden Smith claims Odd Future rapper, Tyler, The Creator, as his boyfriend.
Whether or not Jaden Smith’s declaration of love for Tyler, The Creator is real, it’s still monumental and one of the reason’s why the 20-year-old is lauded as a visionary. Jaden is often praised for his gender-fluid style and forward-thinking politics.
While some children of celebrities and young starlets succumb to their demons due to the pressures of Hollywood, Jaden is trying to change the world. He started an inclusive clothing line, invested in a company that aims to create a water filtration system that’s cheap and can be used in impoverished areas, and set up interviews with his idols like politician turned environmentalist Al Gore.
But his latest move is the one that’s currently making headlines. Over the weekend, he performed at the Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival and revealed some pretty big news during his set.
Since he’s revealed that Tyler, The Creator is his boyfriend, social media has been trying to figure out if he’s trolling. After his performance, he took to Twitter to reiterate his on-stage confession.
Yup @tylerthecreator I Told Everyone You Can’t Deny It Now.

Tyler’s response implies that it was just a joke but Jaden’s admiration seems legit.
hahaha you a crazy nigga man

Tyler opened up about his sexuality in 2017 and Jaden showing support and expressing his love for his friend publicly is just another way the open-minded artist is challenging toxic masculinity and showing support for the LGBTQ+ community.
