The lady doth protest too much. Shemar Moore has once again addressed rumors that he is gay, rumors that date back to at least 2007.
In a new interview with BET, the Criminal Minds alum who has been working on his first independent feature film, The Bounce Back, was asked why he constantly feels the need to refute rumors about his sexuality on social media.
I just think it’s all silly. If you’re gay, you’re gay. I’m not, and I know that and I’m very comfortable with who I am and I love women. I’ve dated plenty of them. If you think I’m gay, send your girlfriend over to my house for the weekend and see what happens. For real. You can call that arrogant if you want to. I just call it confident. You can call me whatever you want, but you don’t know me.
I have fans that are gay, men that come up to me, and they’re inspired by me, or they like me as an entertainer, and when they want to give me a hug or take pictures with me, what, am I supposed to not put my arm around them or stand next to them, and if the man next to me in the picture is gay, that makes me gay? That’s just simpleminded ignorance, and I don’t play that.
