MTV News reports that following the announcement that he will title his next album I'm Gay, Lil B has been the subject of digital abuse. He says,

I spoke up and I did it and I don't regret it…People been hitting me up like, I'm gonna bash your head in…I'm gonna kill you...I'm a keep pushing for the human rights and for people to be happy and the people to speak and you know what, I'm not gonna stop and I'm not scared of anybody on earth.

While we were watching Lil B onstage at the FADER FORT by FIAT we wrote "in the age of information, can one person change the world?" into our phone notes. Don't know why! Sounds like a question our Clinton/multiculturalism era elementary school teachers would have asked. B's too, maybe. As a historical online figure, is Brandon changing the world? Hard to say, but his claim here, that he may be making about .01% of his fans feel more free, seems probable. Perhaps it's even empirically evident to B, who's got a pretty strong handle on Google analytics. This morning, it's hard to spot a negative mention of B on twitter amidst the base-swarm of wooooooooos, swaaaggggggs, positive reviews of his concert at the Mezzanine in San Francisco last night and grabs for his affection.
