Black Men and Gay Stigma: What Happens When Straight Men Are Pranked in a Gay Rap Video?


A comedian staged a fake music video shoot for a social experiment.

The tension gay black men face within the African-American community is not news. For example, just this summer, rapper/model Milan Christopher said he was being shunned on the set of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood for being gay.

Enter comedian Ben Bizuneh, who teamed up with F-Comedy, a digital extension of Fusion, to conduct a social experiment to pierce the reality of the stigma. Bizuneh created a rapper persona for himself, Boss Quoss, going so far as to buy Facebook followers and get into arguments on Twitter with other celebs in order bring life to this artist. As Boss Quoss hints at his sexuality in his new single, "Strokin," Bizuneh decides to see how extras in a video would react to the quasi-rapper making out with another man.

Asking straight black men to take off their shirts and all but simulate handjobs, they had no arguments. But when Boss Quoss makes out with another man, they get all the reactions on camera.
