Evander Holyfield's Son

My Dad Does Not Hate Gay People

1/6/2014 11:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0106_ewin_evander_holyfield_gettyEvander Holyfield may think homosexuality is wrong ... but his son says the heavyweight boxer's got nothing but love for gays -- and even had a great relationship with a gay in-law.

Ewin Holyfield tells TMZ ... Evander is no bigot -- despite being bashed for expressing his opinion on homosexuality during last night's "Celebrity Big Brother" in the UK.

Ewin says, "My dad is the most loving and caring person you will ever meet. He treats everyone like a human being ... even if they are homosexual."

In fact, Ewin says he has a gay uncle ... and Evander treated him like a brother.

Ewin adds, "My dad feels that being gay is a choice ... and naturally that's how things work.  You cannot procreate and make a baby with two women, or two men.  But at the same time, my dad is not going to judge someone for their sexual orientation."

People think the LGBT has a lot more support for their lifestyles then they actually have simply because liberal journalists/channels own the airwaves. You guys are mean, selfish bullies trying to tell everybody what we have to accept. Maybe there should be a new law, separation of the LGBT community and their supporters, from the media, until all of you can learn how to respect other people's views and stop aggressively trying to tear down their beliefs. You've only made people stronger in their resolve to NOT be swayed.

You dad is a gay hating homophobe and advocates harm to gay people by spreading his hate filled ignorance. Typical "moral" superiority from a man with 10 children by 6 different women who thinks he is the supreme judge of anyone.

so the stupid rages in the next generation too. I think he had a weak male self image and so does his son. He is hiding his hate with God. He hates. You 'hate' the sin, you hate the sinner. If he thinks its a choice to change your biology, then change your color, sir. Try it.

Typical and tired line of attack from the homosexual agenda. If one disagrees with the perversion of homosexual behavior, they are "ignorant". What's laughable though is based on these peoples' support for homosexual behavior, they demonstrate a stunning ignorance of biology and nature. They may want to educate yourself on these matters before they call other people "ignorant". Otherwise, they just sound like fools.

And just for clarification: homosexuality IS wrong. Just like lying, stealing, and committing adultery. If you don't want to live by a moral standard don't get upset with those who are trying. Most of the time people are being spared of pain because someone decided to CONTROL THEMSELVES.

No one gives a sh*t in the uk. CBB gets about 10 viewers at its max.

"But at the same time, my dad is not going to judge someone for their sexual orientation."

Saying gay people aren't natural and are "handicapped" is judging someone for their sexual orientation - just throwing that out there.

This is what Sarah Sh.Italian was aiming to do . It is all about create a controversy for the attention they are not getting. Don't fall for it gay people. He is gay himself. Kids don't mean anything. When he mentioned handicap, he was talking about his Scooby Doo looking face. Twisted and stupid looking. He's like Pink Mile. At least we love MCD. This guy is a loser and only picking up the anti gay baton. Leave her alone and ban the networks.

I could not agree more with the wise Mr Hollyfiled, doctors can cure anything ,they cured Micheal Jackson of being black. In fact I recommend the black cure for his families apparent disability.

vey lay off. He is entitled to his opinion. If not, then all opinions about homosexuality are homosexual opinions. No deviation? People who believe in the bible long before the homosexual movement got so large,believed homosexuality was wrong. Now you out to vilify them. Things are not going to change. You guys want to shame people into submission and destroy their career if they even whiff to differ. And Harv, lay off the black people. Seem that is all your show is about. But particularly ridiculing blacks are your specialty. You are not subtle enough for people like me even though you use the blacks todo the piece. I get you, bro.

For the 10 millionth time, we do not choose being gay.
Since when is Holyfield an expert?
As for procreation, straight couples create gay people.
