Tyson Fury has been on a bit of a negative PR rampage recently, managing to offend most people in the process.
He was criticised for making sexist remarks about Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill and former UFC champion Ronda Rousey, as well as claiming a ‘women’s best place is on her back’.
There have also been calls for the boxer to be dropped from the BBC‘s Sport Personality of the Year shortlist after he compared homosexuality and abortion to paedophilia – these comments led Greater Manchester Police to launch an investigation into an alleged hate crime.
But now he’s gone all out to try and prove he’s not homophobic, by kissing a gay man in a bar in Lancashire.
Fury, 27, was being challenged over his ‘homophobic’ rant by the man when he grabbed him and kissed him on the cheeks, before posing for a selfie, The Sun reports.
Shop manager Paul Cole, 41, told the paper:
I told him, ‘I can’t stand you’. He said he wasn’t homophobic and suddenly rubbed my beard and kissed me on both cheeks. I’ve changed my mind about him. He’s a big friendly giant who’d float my boat if he was gay.Advertisement
Well there you go, that’s one way to try and prove you’re not a homophobe…
