Bad Bunny Accused Of Queerbaiting For Fashion And Gay Kiss In ‘Cassandro’ Biopic

Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny has addressed claims that he uses gender-queer fashion as a form of “queer-baiting.” In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, the rapper opened up about fashion and gender, revealing that his use of skirts and dresses in photoshoots and at events has resulted in an endless number of “sexist and homophobic” comments. Bad Bunny acknowledged that he’s targeted “without being homosexual, for dressing like that. Maybe the queer person suffers more, but it is not like I put on a skirt and go out and they say ‘Look, how cool. They’re going to attack me with all their force anyway. You don’t know the reasons why a person is wearing that. You weren’t in his mind when he decided to put on a skirt or a blouse. You don’t know what’s inside him, what’s in his heart. You do it because you want to and it makes you feel good and it makes you feel happy.” From shutting down homophobes on Twitter to donning full drag in his music videos, as well as raising awareness of violence against the trans community, Bad Bunny has consistently used his platform to show up for the LGBTQ+ community. Bad Bunny also stars in ‘Cassandro’, Prime Video’s biopic about Saúl Armendáriz, aka Cassandro (played by Gael García Bernal), the first openly gay wrestler in Mexico’s Lucha Libre. Ahead of its release this Friday, Prime Video dropped a new set of clips – including a steamy moment between Bernal and Bad Bunny’s characters.
