Former president, Barack Obama, has been a champion of protecting the gay pornography industry from angry conservatives.
He recently took to Twitter to voice his opinion on the matter: “Today, some of the books that shaped my life—and the lives of so many others—are being challenged by people who disagree with certain ideas or perspectives. And librarians are on the front lines, fighting every day to make the widest possible range of viewpoints, opinions, and ideas available to everyone.”
Malik Obama – brother of Barack Obama – saw this tweet and responded in a since-deleted tweet saying “This man is definitely gay”.

The response from Malik Obama has sparked debate about whether or not it was appropriate for him to speak out against his own brother.
The LGBTQ+ community has lost what is left of their small minds at Malik’s tweet as it implies that homosexuality is something negative or wrong and that gay porn SHOULD be shared with children, I suppose.
Obama was referring to sexually explicit books such as “Gender Queer” – a book filled with pornographic photos.
Malik Obama reacted to Barack Obama’s tweet.
“This man is definitely gay,” Malik Obama said in a since-deleted tweet.
Malik has been quite outspoken against Barack in the past, previously accusing Barack of abandoning his Kenyan family and ripping him as “cold and ruthless.”
“He got rich and became a snob,” Malik reportedly told The New York Post from his home in the Kenyan village of Nyang’oma Kogelo. “What I saw was he was the kind of person that wants people to worship him. He needs to be worshiped and I don’t do that. I am his older brother so I don’t do that.”
The pair previously shared a more genial relationship; Malik was the best man at Barack’s wedding, per The Post. He also reportedly was a regular visitor of the Oval Office during the Obama presidency.
Things started to sour after Barack “turn[ed] his back on the people he said were his family” and refused to help them out during a time of dire need, according to Malik.
Malik famously endorsed former President Trump in the 2016 presidential election. He and his half-brother, Barack, both share the same father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr.
