Evander Holyfield makes latest anti-gay comments

  • Evander Holyfield is the latest celebrity to express controversial views regarding homosexuality. The boxer was asked if gay people took part in the sport and he responded saying that homosexuality isn't normal and is as good as being disabled since birth. 

    Producers told Holyfield to keep such views to himself and issued a statement mentioning that he was told that his views "weren't shared by a large section of society and that expressing those views and the language he used could be seen as extremely offensive to many people. He was warned to think carefully about repeating them. Evander understood and accepted this."

    Holyfield's son said his dad thinks that being homosexual is a choice but "is not going to judge someone for their sexual orientation."
