Tyson Fury kisses gay man in an attempt to prove he is not homophobic
The boxing champion has appeared in media recently for making a series of controversial claims about homosexuality.
This coverage led Paul Cole – a gay shop manager – to confront the boxer when he saw him in a pub.
Paul told The Sun: “I told him, ‘I can’t stand you’.”
However Cole was shocked by Fury’s gracious reaction.
“He [Fury] said he wasn’t homophobic and suddenly rubbed my beard and kissed me on both cheeks,” Paul said.
“I’ve changed my mind about him. He’s a big friendly giant who’d float my boat if he was gay,” the shop manager added.
However despite this gesture of goodwill, the heavyweight champion has refused to apologise for claiming that once homosexuality, paedophilia and abortion are all made legal, the world will end. Or for insisting to have “evidence” that paedophilia was legalised by a fictional ‘Gay Rights Act 1977’.
Yesterday, the BBC defended their nomination of Fury for the broadcaster’s Sports Personality of the Year award,
despite 150,000 people signing a petition to have Fury removed from the shortlist for the awards.
Olympic track and field star Greg Rutherford also threatened to pull out of the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year award if Tyson Fury remained on the shortlist.
Fury has been uninvited from the awards ceremony because of threatening comments he allegedly made to a sports journalist, but remains on the shortlist.
