Actor Shemar Moore is speaking out on teh ghey rumors that have plagued him nearly his entire career.
The buff 46-year-old Oakland native is sick and tired of persistent rumors that he prefers his back rubs brokeback style.
In an interview with BET TV, the ‘Criminal Minds’ sex symbol said:
“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.”
Moore added that he refuses to shun his gay fans just because people think he’s gay.
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.
