Former heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield, 51, says being gay is not normal and he compared the sexual behaviour to a handicap that needed fixing. He made the controversial statements to reality star Luisa Zissman in the UK Celebrity Big Brother 2014 house in London. Holyfield says he disagrees with the popular gay agenda theory that gays are born that way.
According to him; “If you were born and your leg was turned this way, then you’d go to the doctor and get it fixed back, right? It is a choice. Come on, that ain’t the way nobody is made… You ain’t gay unless you sleeping with the opposite sex.” He said.
Gay public figures such as British singer Boy George were quick to respond to Holyfield’s statements. “Shame, I had such admiration for Mr Evander Holyfield, he seemed dignified and I was sure he was a cool, smart, giant!,” George tweeted. He added: “At customs there should be a huge sign! Welcome to Britain, racism, sexism, homophobia and bad hair are not tolerated!” he said.
