Rapper Tyler, the Creator, has responded to claims of homophobia, saying that his gay fans aren’t offended by his frequent use of the word “faggot,” reports MTV.

The rapper, who leads a Los Angeles–based hip hop collective called Odd Future, uses the word “faggot” 204 times on his recent albumGoblin. Other musicians, including Sara Quin, who is lesbian, and the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation  have spoken out against Tyler’s repeated use of the slur.

MTV asked him about the controversy. “Well, I have gay fans and they don’t really take it offensive, so I don’t know. If it offends you, it offends you,” Tyler says. “If you call me a nigga, I really don’t care, but that’s just me, personally. Some people might take it the other way; I personally don’t give a shit.”

“He shouldn’t apologize,” Rivers told The Daily Beast,claiming she would have to apologize after every show if everyone she offended had their way. “Gay fans? What are they doing seeing him anyhow? Why aren’t they watching me and Kathy Griffin? What are they doing at this show?” Then she laughed and said, “He’s lost his gay fan.”
