Malik Yoba shocked his female fans by confessing he struggles with his attraction to male-to-female transgenders. A MtF trans is a female-identified male who wears feminine attire. The New York Undercover and Cool Runnings star admitted his sexual preference in a lengthy post on his Instagram account over the holiday weekend.
The 51-year-old actor wrote an emotional open post to "Black and all men" in response to the tragic suicide of a Philadelphia man who was bullied for confessing his attraction to a MtF.
20-year-old Maurice "Reese Him Daddie" Willoughby took his own life after he was dumped by his MtF transgender lover who accused him of domestic abuse.
Malik called on all Black men to erase the stigma that surrounds attraction to same-sex males and MtF transgenders.
"TRANS PEOPLE DESERVE LOVE AND RESPECT AS DO THOSE OF US THAT LOVE THEM!!" Malik wrote. He added he is a heterosexual male who loves women, but he struggles with his attraction to MtF transgenders.
He added: "Many of us famous and otherwise that have struggled with accepting our attraction so we do NOTHING. This must change."
