Evander Holyfield told a housemate on “UK Celebrity Big Brother” that being gay is no different than being handicapped … because a doctor can fix both … and was immediately SCOLDED like a child by “BB” producers.
Holyfield made the comments Sunday — during his first week in the BB house — when reality star Luisa Zissman asked him if there were any gay boxers in the sport.
Holyfield — a deeply religious Christian –cited the bible and said homosexuality is NOT a choice … but rather something like a “handicap” … something doctors can fix.
Zissman respectfully disagreed with Evander … and it seemed the two were ready to move on with their lives … when Evander was taken to a private room, where producers RIPPED him for expressing his beliefs.
In fact, “BB” producers called Evander’s comments “inappropriate” because they “aren’t the views that are held by a large section of society.”
Holyfield says he understood that his comments could be considered offensive … but never apologizes.
This whole situation reminds us why we revolted against England … so we could have the freedom to express our religious and other beliefs … no matter how offensive.
