The R&B singer headlined D.C.’s annual Pride concert and although the crowd was visibly impressed, the Internet went into a frenzy, discussing everything from his sexuality to using the LGBT community for profit (as if he’s not supposed to paid for doing his job).

While the criticism was heavy, there were those that applauded his decision to perform.

While Tank hasn’t publicly addressed the online backlash, he did post a video of his time in D.C. Check it out below.
