Earlier this week, Frank Ocean shared a moving letter he had written to his fans outlining that his first love was a man. Since then, we saw how several members of his team, including Odd Future brethren Tyler, the Creator, reacted to the news via their Twitter accounts.

But Tyler wasn't done there. He also shared his feelings on the matter on Formspring when a fan posited the following question:

Frank is the fucking man, and a hero and inspiration to everyone. His sexuality has nothing to do with how amazing his music and talents are. Tyler, you're also amazing for not caring about that stupid bullshit. You're honestly a good dude.

Tyler's response is below:

hahaha yeah, ive know for a while, he told me a long time ago. it was just funny cause i was getting bashed as a homophobe or whatever and i kept saying dude how am i one? i have gay friends like what the fuck leave me alone haha. yeah thats my n***a tho, shit is hard for him but he did that.
