After several online news sites said reggaeton artist Daddy Yankee had publicly come out on Wednesday, the artist completely denied the rumors.
Earlier that day, reports affirmed the Puerto Rican artist had issued a statement from a gay nightclub where he allegedly admitted he was gay and talked about some compromising pictures that supposedly show him with another man.
The Huffington Post contacted Daddy Yankee’s manager who completley denied the allegations and clarified the performer was just a victim of defamation.
“Once again social networks are the protagonists in spreading false news, which have been replicated by other media involving a public figure. The story that is circulating about Daddy Yankee’s homosexuality declaration is a false story written by an Internet portal as many others, dedicated to fabricate and disseminate news through social networks,” said Helga García, president of Perfect Partners Public Relations.
Meanwhile, the singer also turned to his Twitter account to very diplomatically share a quote by Albert Einstein letting his fans know how he feels about the controversy.
“‘I fear the day when technology exceeds our humanity the world will only have a generation of idiots,’ Albert Einstein.”
The star then continued to tweet, getting a bit more personal.
They’ve killed me, they’ve defamed me and they will continue to invent sh** about me online, but there is only one truth.
It is not the first time Daddy Yankee has had to face this type of comments. Last month, he also used his social media accounts to address speculations about his sexuality.
“Once again, ignorance has come into play, the Internet is where lies become truths and the truth becomes myth,” he said on that occasion.
