Former Australian rugby league player turned, pro-boxer, Anthony Mundine has come under fire for his remarks that he made about gay people during an interview after his exit from the reality show I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph, Mundine was asked about his views on homosexuality, which he said he opposed prior to appearing on the show.
“If we were to live in a society, just like Aboriginal culture, that homosexuality is forbidden and you do it and the consequences are capital punishment or death, you think you are going to do it? Or think twice about doing it?”
Mundine who also believes that gay people shouldn’t be allowed on TV because it would indoctrinate children, said, “They are not going to be happy until they have primary school kids being gay.”
“I talk the truth. It is the system. I don’t care if you are gay or not, it doesn’t worry me because the creator will judge you later. If you are going to be gay, do it behind closed doors, that is how it used to be in the olden days.”
When asked specifically if he thought gay people should be executed, Mundine added: “The pedophiles mainly, hang them suckers and let’s see if they have the balls to do it again.”
Prior to entering the reality show, I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, Mundine told the Sydney Morning Herald that homosexuality is “confusing to society.”
