Evander Holyfield admonished for anti-gay comments
Evander Holyfield has been reprimanded for his recent comments about homosexuality on the British reality show Celebrity Big Brother, according to the Associated Press.
The former heavyweight champion said on the show that being gay “ain’t normal” and was a choice. He also compared homosexuality with a birth defect, saying people should “go to the doctor and get it fixed back right.”
According to the report, producers of the show said they spoke with Holyfield regarding his comments and advised him that his ideas “aren’t the views that are held by a large section of society, and expressing these views will be extremely offensive to many people.”
