Vivica A Fox recently sat down with Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy on the morning radio show The Breakfast Club, to promote her new reality show, Black Magic, on Lifetime. The show follows Fox around as she prepares to launch her exotic, all-male revue featuring hot African-American dancers (“Think Magic Mike with a dose of melanin”). It’s “the ultimate girls night out,”she says. When The Breakfast Club crew asked if her show was “for gay men, too ,” she huffily replied:
“Aw, hell no,” then doubled down on that, saying: “Back all that up. No! NO!”
When asked why her dancers wouldn’t perform for gay men, Vivica replied,
“Because there’s no need to. They dance for women. It’s called the ultimate girls night out for a reason.”
Which… is fine for her if that’s the route she chooses. There’re plenty of male-for-male strippers in the world to ogle – There is no shortage of jockstrapped beauties. It’s just her tone that slightly rankles. As one Queerty commenter pointed out: “She could have said, well, have their own thing, Gay men have A LOT of outlets for fun, but girls don’t have that many and this one is for the girls!” and all would have been fine.
And, as Queerty points out:
This isn’t the first time Vivica has made homophobic remarks in public either. In 2015, she insinuated her ex, rapper 50 Cent, was gay because he enjoyed rim jobs, and said he looked like a gay “booty snatcher” in a photoshoot he did with Soulja Boy for Vibe magazine.
We think we speak for everyone when we say: Girl, bye!
