Evander Holyfield Offends Gays With Comments On TV Show [Video]
Evander Holyfield is known as being one of the best heavyweight boxers in history.
His comments against homosexual’s in an episode of Celebrity Big Brother wasn’t one of the best decisions of his career.
In a conversation during the show, he was speaking to one his castmate Luisa Zissman when she asked if there were any gays in boxing.
After answering the initial question, he went on to speak about being gay as a “choice,” and how it should be “fixed.”
Big Brother came out to tell Holyfield about his actions, and telling him that much of society doesn’t hold the same views as he does. The former world champion responds by saying that it was just his opinion.
Some people are noticeably upset at the comments, and are speaking out against the former boxer.
Shame, I had such admiration for Mr Evander Holyfield, he seemed dignified and I was sure he was a cool, smart, giant!
