The drama with Offset isn't over just yet.

Days after the Migos rapper caught backlash over the lyric "I cannot vibe with queers," his fiancée Cardi B has come to his defense.

"I'm not going to let somebody call him 'homophobic' when I know that he's not," she said in a Periscope video Saturday night. "And I'm saying this because I seen him around these . . . around gays, and he treats them with the same respect he treats everybody. He never acts uncomfortable and he just don't care."

Offset took to Instagram last week to talk about his controversial line from YFN's "Boss Life," explaining that he didn't mean "queer" as a reference to homosexuals, and his fiancée is backing him up.

"It has a different vocabulary on the dictionary," she said. "Now, that’s a word that you guys say that it's a bad word for gays — I never even heard that word in the first place. Why don't y'all educate people about it? A lot of people are not aware about what's wrong or right in the LGBT community. Why don't we do things to educate instead of bashing and trying to label something that they not?"
