*Funnyman/actor Deon Cole is dealing with some mess of his own making. If you missed it, dude wore a velvet suit thingy with pants that flared at the bottom … like bell bottoms from back in the day. The problem is, small minds are accusing him of being gay, because of the outfit.
Now the “black-ish” star is dealing with the backlash via an extended Instagram
Here’s a taste of what he had to say:
“What’s up y’all, I want to talk about this real quick – first of all let me say this, I am a comic, number one. I like to have live moments, I like things to be live. Any event I’ve ever been to, I have a track record. You can see a track record of outfits I’ve worn. I’ve had horseshoes, seahorses, all kinds of prints, all kinds of colors – I’ve always had the balls to wear what I wanted to wear and with that comes opinions. Now everyone is entitled to their opinion, everybody, I accept that – if you want to call my outfit the worst outfit you’ve ever seen in your life, you have that opinion. You’re supposed to. You ain’t supposed to like everything. … The part that I’m tripping over about this is the hate. The hate that I have been receiving because I wore a bell bottom valor velvet suit has been unreal. I’ve been told I’ve been called a ‘b*tch a** n*gga, f*ggot,’ I’ve been told I’m gonna get my a** whooped. … Motherf*ckers have denounced me from being funny – because of a suit. It wasn’t even a whole suit.”
