    Boxing Champ. Makes me cringe. Anyone that bashes the crap out of another human being for a living is not normal. Scum.

  2. Francis says

    Another day, another public figure demeaning us as people.

    Too bad ignorance is normal because Evander sure is full of it.

  3. Mel Smith says

    Ok, everybody should know that Holyfield is ignorant. That’s why his view dealing with sexuality does not bother me at all.

    With those beliefs and words out of his mouth, Holyfield’s brain is clearly fried.

    People like him and that man from Duck Dynasty are the lowest of the low.

  4. JackFknTwist says

    Yet another example of these ‘celebrities’ who think it’s fine to denigrate gay people.

    Bring on the backlash……

    I fail to see why any attention should be given to someone who has had more blows to the head than Tebow.
    Hollyfield is a fool.

  5. danswon says

    I really didn’t expect intelligence or enlightenment from an old ex-heavyweight boxer. Shame how people live up to stereotypes. How boring.

  6. says

    No George. It isn’t.
    Being a boxer is a choice. Being gay isn’t. If it were simply a matter of choice why would thousands of young kids have taken their lives because of being stigmatized and ridiculed by people like yourself? If it were as simple as making a choice rather than ending their own lives wouldn’t they have simply chosen to live as hetero?

    Educate yourself on LGBT issues before your ignorance causes yet more harm. Is this really the person you want to be for the rest of your life?

  7. Cadence says

    This is the guy who made the choice to have 11 children by six different women. He then made the choice not to support those children financially or emotionally. And after that the choice was made for him to punish him by taking away his driver’s license. Why would someone who has made so many bad choices feel the need to pass judgement against anyone? There should be something in the Bible about being a responsible and present parent.

  8. Randy says

    I think that, just like A&E and the Duck people, if they are going to have Evander on their show, they need to let him say what he wants to say.

    If they don’t want to be associated with those remarks, they need to dump him immediately. If they aren’t going to dump him, they have no business lecturing him.

    That said, it was an entertaining lecture. But it should never have happened.

  9. says

    Well Andy I wonder what the numbers would look like if white people didn’t have a long history of killing people of color.

    On topic he’s an idiot.

  10. David in the O.C. says

    How would he know that it’s a choice, unless he’s gay and he made a choice to live a “straight lifestyle”.

    Someone should ask this ignorant moron when he chose to be straight.

  11. 604Brian says

    The girl was very smart trying to warn him about the topic and his views without chastising him.
    Yet another Big Brother contestant who lets their guard down and reveals their true selves to the viewing public. I think it is good to show people the ignorance that is held and spoken and then shown as unacceptable behaviour in society.

  12. northalabama says

    bigotry is the only choice reported in this story, and it’s sad.

    once respected, now he’s disgraced. i hope someone with sense speaks truth to him soon, before the brain damage permanently sets in.

  13. John says

    He is clearly guilty of having a mans lips covered in lipstick around his cock. And it was the best he ever had. Guilt makes people carry on this way. Scum.

  14. Joe says

    Oh my god. He’s dumb. Whatever.

    There is so much more amazing things to spend your energy on.

    So let’s do.

  15. knorman says

    And we are to take moral advice from a third-rate blancmange-brained fornicating child-support dodger?

    Bugger off back to Alabama baldy. Jesus may love you, but we don’t.

    Thankfully, ALL people have rights here.

  16. Jumper says

    Um…who the HELL cares what this pugilistic ass while thinks anyway? Who is Evander Holyfield anyway?!?!

  17. sam says

    Homosexual behavior is a choice. You can choose to be chaste or you can choose to be non-chaste. However, homosexual orientation is as innate and non-choice as any other orientation.

  18. L G. says

    …and in a few days ‘(he NOW has our attention) he´ll say he didn´t mean THAT and offer a sorry! and the World will forgive and hopefully forget

  19. Arch says

    The show also has on it this year a famously bi/gay star from the biggest relaity show in the uk, hopefully olly will teach him some Chelsea manners!!

  20. Bryan says

    Boxing is very much a sport involving domination of another person. I would not be surprised if due to his close bonds with other male boxers and athletes, paired with abstaining from sex during training, as some boxers do, he likely had thoughts of dominating his opponents in other ways. I don’t think he’s gay, I think he is ‘top’ minded, and when he talks about gay people he’s talking about being a ‘bottom’. I find a lot of straight people say “gay” or “fag”, but really mean “bottom, catcher, submissive” when you look at the context with which they use it.

    It’s still abhorrent and based in ignorance, but you can’t have a proper discussion or debate unless you know where your opposition is coming from.

  21. John Freeman says

    Another brain dead sports figure pontificating on things he doesn’t begin to understand. Why bother?

  22. jjose712 says

    Too many punches in the head.

    And with his own life facts he is in no position to judge nobody

  23. Shelly says

    Don’t his statements cancel one another out? If it’s a “handicap,” how can it also be a “choice”?

  24. DamSexy says

    Yeah, I chose to be gay so overblown, famous-in-their-own-mind “celebrities” could bash me at will. I don’t think so, Mr Holyfield; I was born gay, just as you were born black. Same difference; it’s in our genes. The sooner homophobes like you learn that the better off the country will be!

  25. MickyFlip says

    Oh please, it’s Evander Holyfield. Why am I not surprised nor bothered by what he thinks? I mean…this is a guy who’s ears were chewed off by Mike Tyson in the ring. Hard not seeing that everytime he talks about anything. All I see is his lack of ears.

  26. acde says

    Why pay any attention to someone who has had all sanity knocked out of them years ago? Think of the visible effects of boxing on Mohamed Ali

  27. mark says

    Instead of treating Holyfield with hatred, why not just understand that he’s ignorant? Ignorance is not evil. The guy just needs to be educated.

  28. Derrick from Philly says

    A professional boxer with no education from the Bible Belt. Also, with what? Fourteen children by 10 different women?

    Why? Is Evander the answer to the Duck Dynasty Fool?

    Andy, what was the purpose of putting this news story on your blog?

    What the f.ck would Evander know about marriage equality for Gays. Hell, he doesn’t know what Straight marriage is.

    Andy, please.

  30. Reginald says

    This man is nothing more than a brain-dead neanderthal. Which means that many will be applauding his words.

  31. woodroad34 says

    He knows it’s a “choice” because he once was “gay” and then “chose” not to be? Or did he just fart out the answer after a bad batch of cheese nachos?

  32. reality says

    Too many blows to the head. That brain has bounced around against the skull a few too many times to make much sense of anything.

  33. ToThePoint says

    Why the hell would anyone choose to be gay AND hated? He is a foolish has-been and chooses to be a homophobic bigot. THAT is what rises to the level of “handicapped”.

  34. taylor says

    It is not a choice, but can you really say it is genetic? I am not sure. I can not say if I was born homo or hetero sexual. Didn’t give much thought to sex until hormones kicked in. Would genetics determine what hormones and at what level they act? I do know when I made the comparison in college (Towson State) between homosexuality and being black I was criticized aggressively by the BSU, the BSA and more.

  40. Bernie says

    Honestly, when someone is so ignorant in saying gays are “handicapped”, I am not really sure how to react or respond……should I be mad, sad and pity someone who believes something so ridiculous
