Male supermodel Tyson Beckford is (sort of) responding to Kim Kardashian West's clapback, which some deemed homophobic, by sharing two shirtless selfies and insisting he's not gay but that he supports the LGBTQ community.

The feud started when Beckford commented on an Instagram photo a user posted of Kim. In his comment, he wrote "Sorry I don't care for it personally" and "She is not real, doctor f***ed up on her right hip," adding a green, vomiting emoji.

Kim responded, writing, "Sis, we all know why you don't care for it," adding the tea, frog and fingernails emojis. Twitter called out both celebs, saying Beckford body shamed Kim but that Kim's remark was homophobic.

Early Thursday, Beckford took to Instagram to post his shirtless selfies. Though he did not directly mention Kim in his caption, where he says he's not gay but supports the LGBTQ community, the post seems to reference their online tiff.

"Train 5-6 days a wk,weights Martial Arts and Firearms and I defend those who can't defend themselves! I support LGBTQ, even though I'm not Gay," he wrote, adding a rainbow Pride flag emoji. "It's just the Human thing to do. #blackexcellence #tysonbeckford #lgbt #superhero #realsuperhero."
