Controversial rapper Spanian has been fired by his hip-hop collective after a tirade alleging that ‘pedophiles’ are hiding behind the gay pride movement.
Australian rapper Eshay, who built a successful online persona by speaking out about his troubled past in prison, went on an Instagram tirade on Saturday as tens of thousands marched at Sydney’s Mardi Gras.
“I’m fucking sick of this perverted, putrid shit, like a bunch of dead pedophiles hiding behind fucking gay pride,” he said.
‘How far is this for you to show d**ks on the streets now?
His comments came as Sydney hosts the WorldPride festival, the world’s largest celebration of all things LGBTQIA+.
Spanian (pictured left with partner) made a name for himself rapping in prison yards while serving time in prison and has built a successful online brand.
We are not even men, we are not women. We are fucking this, we are that, we are a hundred different things. Forcing it on us. We don’t say anything… Everyone is too scared to say anything. So it is imposed on our children,” Spanian said.
‘All these child hairdressers hiding in plain sight, times are coming to an end, I won’t take it anymore. I’m fucking it up. I’m calling him.
‘What else do we have to accept?… What else do you want to teach our children? Fucking sick of this. fuck them
He also focused on LGBTQIA+ groups using images such as teddy bears to promote events and brands, referencing the recent controversy surrounding luxury fashion brand Balenciaga.
Last year, the designer label launched a campaign featuring images of children holding leather teddy bears.
A ‘BDSM-inspired’ mural on display on Wynyard Street of a teddy bear holding a beer can and a gay pride flag also sparked controversy in Sydney last week, and the artwork was vandalized earlier this week. .

“It’s gotten to the point that now there are fucking pornographic images on the streets with gay flags,” Spanian said.
“Every time I see one of these putrid worms, trying to hide their little shit, targeting kids, just like Balenciaga. It’s not fucking different. What are they doing.
Sick of this shit, we’re done. The whole country is done. The whole world is finished.
Shortly thereafter, artist-run hip-hop collective One Day released a statement announcing that it was severing all professional ties.
“Our company no longer represents Spanian, effective immediately,” the statement said.
“We strongly condemn the issues related to child manipulation and pedophilia in Spain in relation to the LGBTOIA+ community during WorldPride in a recent Instagram video.”
On Monday, the controversial rapper, who grew up in inner-city Sydney in the 1990s and has spent much of his life in prison for various violent offences, took to Instagram again to double down on his bet.

The controversial ex-con (centre of photo while incarcerated) grew up on the streets of Sydney’s inner city in the 1990s and has spent much of his life in some of Australia’s toughest prisons for several violent crimes.
“I have absolutely no regrets, you rotten peasants,” he said before launching into another tirade.
The videos had cost him some fans who said he had gone too far.
“I’m so bummed because I thought you were great and I was telling everyone about you…but I can’t take your rant about gays etc. I can’t tell you how f*cking disappointed I am.” . Unfollow anyway,’ wrote one person.
Others said: ‘This is complete nonsense’ and ‘This is embarrassing.’
Another called the comments “misinformed and hateful.”
“I hope that you talk to your community and that they have a serious conversation with you, because this is detrimental to the mental health of many.”
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Spanian for further comment.
Hip Hop Collective One Day issued a statement cutting professional ties with the rapper and distancing itself from his views.
