Celebrity Big Brother UK – Evander Holyfield Equates Gays With Being Handicapped
Evander Holyfield the former boxer dropped some clangers on Celebrity Big Brother UK when he said people had a choice about being gay and intimated it was the same as being handicapped.
Evander who previously was best known for being the boxer who had his ear bitten off by Mike Tyson revealed his views on homosexuality in a conversation with Luisa Zissman (not sure who she is or what she is famous for).
He was later hauled into the diary room and told off by Big Brother for inappropriate behaviour saying his views were out of step with the majority and they may be found offensive. One of the interesting aspects of Big Brother is seeing “real” conversations and views let’s hope Big Brother does not edit this out.
Big Brother US came under fire in 2013 for not showing racist conversations on the television shows. In the end the outrage on social media meant the show had to broadcast some of the racist and homophobic views of Aaryn.
