Australian Boxer Anthony Mundine Claims Death Penalty Would ‘Deter’ People From Being Gay
Mundine suggests gay people should be put to death in interview…
Australian pro boxer and former rugby league player Anthony Mundine is under fire for remarks he made about gay people in an interview after exiting the reality show I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph after his exit from the show, he 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 also said gay people shouldn’t be allowed on TV because it would indoctrinate children:
“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 paedophiles mainly, hang them suckers and let’s see if they have the balls to do it again.”
Before entering the jungle, Mundine told the Sydney Morning Herald that homosexuality is “confusing to society.”
