Evander Holyfield: Being Gay Is A Choice & Gays Should Get Fixed
Updated Tuesday at 1:15 p.m. PST
Boxer Evander Holyfield's 23-year-old son, Ewin, is coming to his dad's defense following his father's controversial anti-gay comments that aired this weekend on the UK version of Celebrity Big Brother.
Ewin says, "My dad is the most loving and caring person you will ever meet. He treats everyone like a human being ... even if they are homosexual."
In fact, Ewin says he has a gay uncle ... and Evander treated him like a brother.
Ewin adds, "My dad feels that being gay is a choice ... and naturally that's how things work. You cannot procreate and make a baby with two women, or two men. But at the same time, my dad is not going to judge someone for their sexual orientation."
So he treats everyone like a human being...even if they're homosexual. Yeah. We understand the impulse to defend one's parent. But maybe don't...
Providing further evidence that he may have taken one too many blows to the head, boxer Evander Holyfield explained why he believes being gay is a choice and compares homosexuality to a handicap that should be fixed during Sunday night's episode of UK Celebrity Big Brother.
