DC Comics revealed that Superman and Lois Lane’s son appears bisexual in the latest comic book
DC Comics made a groundbreaking announcement this week when it revealed that Superman and Lois Lane’s son is, in fact, part of the LGBTQIA+ community. The new Superman has a male love interest in the next issue and the statement coincided with The Coming Out Day, which is an international day to raise awareness about the importance of ‘coming out of the closet’ and discussing issues related to gays, lesbians, bisexual and transgender people.
DC received high praise for allowing a space for LGBTQIA+ representation in the comic book world, while others criticized the idea of making the new Superman bisexual. For 50 Cent, it looks like it could be a sign that “the world is coming to an end”. The multi-platinum rap star and television executive accessed her page on Instagram to offer his unwarranted opinion on the matter days after DC broke the news.
“Holy shit, the world is coming to an end! Who did this shit with Superman,” said 50 Cent as a caption in his post. “So now he likes Lois Lane and Larry.” Dean Cain, the actor who played Superman in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, was similarly irritated during an interview in which he described the DC ad as “unnecessary.”
“If they had done this 20 years ago, maybe it would have been bold or brave,” he said. “Brave would be to have you fight for gay rights in Iran, where they’re going to throw you out of a building for the simple reason that you’re gay.”
Later, 50 Cent deleted his post he had made on Instagram. Many fans of comic books maintained the position that the owner of BMF who debuted in Starz recently had. However, others doubtless opposed this argument.
Lately, rapper Dababy has made prejudiced comments at a concert and many Rap fans have objected, even more so when his Instagram apology was deleted from his official page. In support, Fif defends the controversy surrounding the artist and said he can still come back on top.
