Waka Flocka Flame says he has nothing against transgender people and the rest of the LGBT community after causing controversy by making derogatory comments while talking about Caitlyn Jenner.

The 65-year-old Olympian and reality star, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, is transitioning from a man to a woman and debuted her new female look and name in June. Her journey was documented on the E! docu-series I Am Cait.

"Women are afraid to be a wife and young males are afraid to be men," Waka Flocka Flame, 29, said on the Power 105.1 FM radio show The Breakfast Club on Friday. It's like, it's not cool; they're not marketing that. They don't market families and husbands and wives no more. They're marketing young girls, transgenders, like, they're marketing evil, man. It's really evil."

"I ain't saying nothing against Bruce Jenner, you following me? You are who you are when God made you, not who you became after he did," added the rapper and 2016 presidential candidate. "That's how I just feel. You're rebuking God, man. God ain't put them feelings in you; that's the devil playing tricks on your mind. That's a test from God. If you can't outbeat that one task, you believe that, then you'll believe everything else and you're going down that way."

Jenner has not commented. On Saturday, following an online backlash, the rapper took to Twitter to clarify his comments.

"So now I'm #Homophobic because I don't agree with #CatlinJenner Smh," he tweeted.

"I have nothing against transgender people. I simply feel we need to be careful what our children see as 'sensationalized,'" he said, adding, "Children's brains are a constant development to adulthood. And they pay attention to everything whether we want to accept it or not. I'm a father now so I look at life a lot differently."

He later wrote in all caps, "IM NOT HOMOPHOBIC I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST THE GAY COMMUNITY. IM STILL STANDING ON WHAT I SAID—IM NOT A FAN OF TRANSGENDERS MARKETED LIKE A SUPERHERO  AND YES I WAS WRONG FOR USING THE WORD I APOLOGIZE FOR THAT AND EVER-PERSON I OFFENDED ."
