So here’s Evander Holyfield in bed with a woman on the popular UK series Celebrity Big Brother, and you might think that maybe the hard-hitting boxer is about to cause some controversy about matters relating to heterosexuality. But you would be wrong–just as we thought that the first American to cause a stir on this year’s season would be the incredibly hot Jasmine Waltz.
As it turns out, Evander Holyfield has caused a ruckus in the UK by sharing his thoughts about gay men. The subject comes up in the above video when fellow Big Brother contestant Luisa Zissman (who’s a sexy business executive from the UK version of The Apprentice) asks Evander about gay boxers. Evander then explains his views about homosexuality. Highlights include his statement that being gay “ain’t normal” and that gay people should aspire to change because, “if you were born and your leg were turned this way, what do you do? You go to the doctor and get it fixed back right.”
As it turns out, Celebrity Big Brother in the UK is pretty literal about having a Big Brother. Especially since the producers overseas aren’t in the mood for any kind of Duck Dynasty brouhaha. You’ll see that Evander is soon brought into the Diary Room and told the following:
Before you entered the Big Brother house, the rules regarding unacceptable language and behaviour were explained to you. Last night, in a conversation with Luisa, you expressed the view that being gay was not normal and that it could be fixed,. While Big Brother understands these are the views you hold, they aren’t the views that are held by a large section of society and expressing these views will be extremely offensive to many people.
So, we doubt that Evander will be going on about his opinions any time soon–although he’s already riled up the wrath of Boy George. Hey, we just had a great idea for packaging a prize fight. Especially if we could rig the thing, because we’d get pretty rich in Las Vegas. And we’ll go ahead and note that Jasmine Waltz has already flashed her breasts and (very) briefly made out with Luisa Zissman, so this probably isn’t the last time that we’ll be talking about the show.
