‘Black Panther’ Actor Admits To Gay Porn Past

Patrick Mutukwa Shumba has apologized to fans for appearing in a gay adult movie…

An actor who appeared in Black Panther is apologizing to fans after it was revealed that he had previously appeared in gay porn movies when he was in his 20s.

Patrick Mutukwa Shumba, who was born in Zambia and now lives in Atlanta, played a Border Tribe warrior in the smash hit Marvel movie. After Black Panther’s release, his homeland embraced him as a hero and Shumba has been touring his home country since the release to talk about his big-screen role.

Over the weekend, images and videos of Shumba in gay porn movies appeared online, and now the actor is responding by issuing a statement of apology through his publicist.

“Recently there was an unsavory video released of Shumba Mutukwa to the Zambian public from his 20s,” reads the statement.

“He was a young man that made a choice not all may agree with however, it does not change who Mr. Mutukwa is as a man, philanthropist, or actor. Mr. Mutukwa has grown and learned from his past as we all do.”

“Although he recognizes his errored decision he does own up to the immature behavior in his past. There is nothing more he can do but continue to use his celebrity to better the country of Zambia.”

“Again, he was a young man himself and is not the same youthful person he was. His life is dedicated to bettering others and what he did in his past has nothing to do with what he’s accomplished and will continue to accomplish.”

“He has strong pride in Zambia and works hard to make the country and its citizens proud. That is his path and he has proven well beyond a doubt that who he is today and will be in the future. The man you’ve grown to love, not the youth that makes immature decisions.”

The actor later posted an emotional poem to his Facebook page, where he spoke of the “shame” he felt and offered an apology “to the people hurt by my past mistakes”.

As well as being the highest-rated Marvel movie of all time on Rotten Tomatoes, Black Panther has become the highest-grossing superhero film of all time in the US, and the third-highest grossing film in the US of all time.
