Keith Powers Issues Apology After “Bisexual” Controversy

Published: Saturday 17th Jun 2017 by Sam

Actor Keith Powers felt the stint of social media last night when he came under fire over controversial comments made in an interview.

Speaking to Hollywood Unlocked about speculation surrounding his private life, the ‘New Edition Story’ star said the most outlandish rumor he had heard was that he was bisexual.

He then proceeded to say that he doesn’t believe men can be bisexual:

Needless to say, the roasting commenced.

Remorseful, the 24-year-old took to Twitter to apologize. He said:

Well-worded apology. But is it too little or too late or should he be cut some slack?

Your thoughts?

    People need to understand that all humans are born open/bisexual but society and environments forces you to choose one. In the ancient days it was very common to be attracted to both sexes because they understood the human behavior. Currently we have all of these foolish labels and categories of sexuality. No one is born straight or gay but every human being is born OPEN and are naturally bisexual but once again society forces you to choose one. As one grow older they will prefer one over the other intimately but still have a natural attraction towards both sexes. We see all the time especially if someone who is like me genetically beautiful. What makes this sexuality taboo is religion by humans and the man made concept of race which put division amongst people. Many people understand this and have succesful relationships in example Will Smith & Jada Pinckett along with many others. But uneducated and ignorant individuals like Keith Powers makes it difficult because they don’t understand the human behavior or themselves.

    Omg he said what he said…everyone has their own opinions and outlooks #justsaying

    There was no need to apologize. That’s what he believes. At least he wasn’t bashing the gay community. He still will get jobs. He’s on free form’s famously in love that show with bella thorne and he did a couple of movies as well if anybody was asking

    People are real sensitive as if he said anything wrong.

  8. Your Mother June 17, 2017

    He should not have apologized!!!!!

  9. Cbeylive June 17, 2017

    I wonder what beyonce named her kids????

    He said, “I think” and “personally”, which means he was careful to express his words as an opinion. He doesn’t need to be attacked because you disagree. I don’t understand why a person’s sexuality is so often the focus of interviews anyway. Why does everyone need to know what goes on in a person’s bedroom? People are so childish.

      Didn’t he bring it up though?

    If you dont understand how a man can be bisexual, just admit you don’t understand and move on. No need to insist it’s not possible just because you don’t understand.

    • Wouter June 19, 2017

      This x 1000 getting really tired of people claiming something’s not possible or doesn’t exist just because they don’t get it

  12. Steve June 17, 2017

    People will always say something stupid and then be quick to apologize for things they shouldnt say in the first place

  13. Ed June 18, 2017

    He didn’t to apologize. He didn’t say anything wrong. That was his opinion and it was perfectly fine. What’s the big deal?
    However, who is he btw?
