Vivica A. Fox Doesn’t Want Gay Men at Her Vegas All Male Revue

Vivica A. Fox does not want gay men at her Las Vegas black male dancer revue Black Magic

Movie and television star Vivica A. Fox is opening an all male revue in Las Vegas and has a message for the LGBTQ fans who have followed her career for years: no gay men allowed.

Leading up to her discriminatory admission, Fox starred on a Lifetime reality series called Vivica’s Black Magic documenting the creation of the Vegas revue. The show and concept feature her creating a Magic Mike-style stage show featuring black male dancers.

Queerty reported on what happened when she attempted to advertise the show and her revue:

Given the success of Magic Mike, especially among gay men, we’d say that, unlike her previous efforts, Vivica may be onto something with this new show. There’s just one teeny tiny problem: She doesn’t want any gay guys there.

In a recent interview with Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy on the morning radio show The Breakfast Club, she was asked if her show was “for gay men, too.”

“Aw, hell no,” Vivica was quick to reply. “Back all that up. No! NO!

When asked why her dancers wouldn’t perform for gay men, Vivica replied, “Because there’s no need to. They dance for women. It’s called the ultimate girls night out for a reason.”

Fox’s anti-gay remarks follow similar remarks two years ago when she implied her ex 50 Cent is gay. Regardless of the truth of his sexual orientation, using it as a weapon against him on television was both telling about her view of the LGBTQ community and her views of LGBTQ people in general.

The story doesn’t end with Fox’s interview.

Concerned her words may have been taken out of context, several people reached out to her via social media to see what she meant and to see if she really did want to discriminate based on sexual orientation and sex as to who should attend her Vegas show.

Here are some of the more relevant tweets from her official Twitter account:

It appears that although she wants to restrict her Vegas revue to heterosexual women only, she’s fine continuing to use the LGBTQ community to advance her television career.

Here’s the original video interview where Fox made the remarks:
