Evander Holyfield: Gays are Handicapped, Can Be Fixed By a Doctor

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Evander Holyfield, a former Heavyweight Champion who made a living knocking opponents around in the ring, pulled no punches this weekend in a controversial clip from UK Celebrity Big Brother.

Speaking to housemate Luisa Zissman, Holyfield referred to the bible and said homosexuality is not a choice. He added that being gay is a "handicap" and the condition can be fixed by a doctor.

In the following footage, the ex-athlete is taken aside and berated by producers for his "inappropriate" comments, which Holyfield acknowledges could be offensive. But he doesn't offer an apology.

For the record:

Holyfield has fathered 12 children by six women, has been divorced three times and was held in contempt of court in 2012 for failing to pay over 500K in fatherhood.

He was also accused three years ago of beating his wife because she didn't put God first.

What we are wondering Evander is if oversexed men who have 12 children with 6 different women can be fixed by a doctor, too. Gay and lesbians are that way because they want to be that way and dont need fixing, by a doctor. Many doctors are gay or lesbians themselves, and actually finding a really good doctor anymore, is a difficult thing, as so many greedy con-artists. Though Evander's ingnorant intentions are probably good, he just doesnt know better.
