Ginuwine was recently slammed on social media for rejecting sexual advances from a transgender woman who was also his constant on Celebrity Big Brother UK. Since the exchange went viral, some have accused the singer of being transphobic while others have labeled him a victim of sexual assault.
Comedian D.L. Hughley shared his thoughts on the incident during a recent appearance on The Breakfast Club, explaining why he believes the assault falls in line with the now widespread #MeToo movement.
“This trans woman tried to kiss him [Ginuwine] — she sexually assaulted him and they got mad at the victim,” he said. “That’s what I don’t understand because she’s a full trans [woman], so apparently, they took all the male parts away and infused her with white woman privilege because only a white woman thinks she can kiss you and you’re supposed to want to.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Hughley speaks on Oprah Winfrey’s potential presidential run, why we should expect more from our government than entertainers, and much more. Check it out below.
His comments about Ginuwine begin at the 7:30 mark.
