well i be.

well thats what medical expert,
boxer wolf evander holyfield,
had to say on u.k.’s celebrity big brother last night…
Boxer Evander Holyfield, who is currently on the U.K.’s Celebrity Big Brother, is in hot water for remarks he made on the program comparing homosexuality to a disability, saying both can be treated by a doctor. All together now: Ughhh.
Holyfield made the remarks on Sunday when reality star Luisa Zissman asked him if there were any gay boxers, according to TMZ. He responded that homosexuality is a “handicap” doctors can fix. When Zissman repeatedly told him he was wrong, and also that they shouldn’t even be having this conversation in the 24/7 camera house, Holyfield replied he was “just telling her my opinion.” While the content of what he’s saying is obviously offensive to many, the conversation was fairly civil.
Here’s where things get interesting: Unlike on the most recent version of the U.S.’s Big Brother — which also made headlines for racist and homophobic remarks by many of the castmates — on the celebrity U.K. version, producers called out the negative remarks instead of just letting things play out without interference. Holyfield — who never apologizes – was brought into a room and told by producers his comments were “inappropriate,” and they “aren’t the views that are held by a large section of society.” He was then given a warning to not say remarks like that again, but he continues to be on the show.
i had to use my trusty “this fool here” britney gif.
if being “gay” is a “disability”,
does that means we can get some sort of insurance money for it?
i will head down to the clinic quick and in a hurry if so.
look he is entitled to his own opinion like the rest,
but honestly speaking,
i feel that one had too many knocks upside his head to even be taken seriously.
since he is giving out “medical advice” all willy nilly tho,
i wonder if he knows when they will find the cure for being a dumb ass?
he (and a few others) need to be first in line when that is released.
