A shirtless Tank performed some of his sexiest hits on-stage over Memorial Day weekend and the Internet gave him hell about it.
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.
Encouraging to see Tank, a straight black man, performing at Black LGBT Pride event in DC this weekend. Open minds. Open hearts. https://t.co/BpogpPRMbX

Some women upset because Tank performed at DC Black Pride. The shade is that some of their husbands & boyfriends were probably in the crowd.

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