Boxer Yusaf Mack Says That Actually, He’s Not Bi, He’s Gay

Boxer Yusaf Mack Says That Actually, He’s Not Bi, He’s Gay

Another turn in the seemingly never ending story of boxer Yusaf “Mack Attack” Mack. Just days after coming out as bisexual, the 35-year-old now says that, actually, on second third thought, he’s gay.

The revelation follows an apology and statement last week retracting allegations that he was drugged into doing a gay adult film. He also said in the statement that he is bisexual.

The new interview, with FOX 29, reveals that Mack wants to speak openly about his sexual orientation and be honest about the reasons he made the film, and move on.

“I’m gay. I’m tired of holding it in, it is what it is. I live my life. I’m gay,” he tells FOX 29 Philly’s Quincy Harris.

Mack says he’s known he is gay for “about 8 years” and he says the story that he was drugged into doing a gay porn movie “was all a lie…To try to cover myself up.”

He adds: “I just didn’t know when it was going to come out. When it came out, it was out. I couldn’t hide it anymore. It was down and out, I asked friends, they wouldn’t help me, so I did what I had to do.”

Mack says he never thought anyone in Philly would see the film and describes what it felt like when news broke that it was out there. “I was hurt. Like to myself. Then I think about my children, like how am I gonna explain this to my children. I called a couple of my friends and told them ‘I’m thinking about killing myself.’”

Mack said friends came to help him through his pain. His 23-year-old daughter hasn’t been so accepting.

“Kill yourself,” she said, according to Mack, “You embarrass us.”

“I threw the phone down,” he says.  “All I could say was, ‘you’re right’. I threw the phone down.”

“The truth is I’m sorry. You don’t like me or love me, regardless I’m still me. When you see me on the streets, I’m still Yusaf Mack.”

    Having two dicks in your mouth doesn’t mean jack, I’ve met bi guys who are how do I say this “really gay during sex” Yeah especially that versatile one I met one time, so his actions in his video shouldn’t mean he’s gay or bi, means he was having fun. *stares into emptiness and walks away*

      @nightwing: those guys TELL u they’re bi, but do u have anyway of verifying weather it’s actually true? A lot of gay guys (eg,Yusuf Mack) still try to pass themselves of as bi,and sleep with any woman they can find (eg, Yusuf Mack),because they feel it’s more…I dunno,honourable?
      Hell,some gay guys even still insist their not bi,but STRAIGHT: “I no be gay o, I love women,I just like being fucked hard in my ass by huge,strong dicks,that’s all…but that doesn’t make me gay or bi o,I’m as straight as a ruler”

Oh my goodness I can’t contain myself. Yeah but it is true though, besides all the bi guys I’ve met say they prefer guys to girls. What has me baffled is shouldn’t they like both sides equally?

    1. This Nigga is desperate to stay in the lime light. There is no place for Bi-Sex in the world, so I’ll understand why he would rather identify as Gay.

    2. Money, Money, And lots of Money! That’s what this is all abt. The more we talk abt this dude, like we are doing now, the more his stocks rises and he strts getting invited to interviews, radio and talk shows. He becomes a celeb. Ex boxer cum gay activist. It’s all about the cheddah for this dude.

    The thing I have with this dude is, nothing he says can be believed. Even now saying he is gay, I don’t buy it. He is probably Broke ass Bi dude who needs some money and attention. I repeat the facts he threw in a world class performance in the sex tape (though I haven’t watched it but from what I have heard) doesn’t still prove that he is Gay or willingly does guys. he could just be a very great professional in the porn act.

    The daughter said he should go and die.. Omg! (Where are those people that want to run off to the milk and honey filled America Because Nigeria is the only place homophobia exist) homophobes are everywhere and it will be with us till the end of time. So instead of thinking of running away from it.. Prepare yourself to face the battle head on because homophobia is here to stay till the end of time.

    Abeg no peace in this world concerning sexuality.
    Say you’re straight: he is probably pretending. I mean just look at his gesticulations! Hypocrite!

    Say you are gay: can you imagine? What a disgusting low life!

    Say you are bi: why are people so greedy? Why can’t he just stick to one? Or Nigga gay! He just showing

    Transgender: WTF!

    Asexual: ah don’t believe it. He needs help. Maybe psychotherapy?

    Lesbian: all she needs is a good dicking.

    He is 35.

    His daughter is 23.

    He was 12 when he impregnated her mother.

    I see!!!

    If he just found out about his sexuality 8 years ago at the age of 27, that means there is still hope for me. Maybe my first love would realize that he is gay.

    Lol!! That was quick – the trip from Straight to Gay, via Bisexual.

    Usually it takes at least 6 months

    He needs to pace himself, he will soon run out of belivable sexualities.

    He has an incompetent PR team. ?

    This is probably why the daughter is ashamed of him, he is not pacing himself.

    BTW, all those 10 children, may not be all his biologically. Some could be step children.

    All this has obviously been for publicity and this proves it. He’s keeping the story going by constantly releasing more bits of information. Did you know Yusaf Mack before this porn scandal? I didn’t. Then I was intrigued and watched his flick. Then he said he wasn’t gay but drugged and we discussed it. Then he came out as bi and we kept discussing. And now he’s come out as gay and, again, we are discussing.

If your boxing career has tanked, find another source of publicity and milk it as much as you possibly can, next thing you know, he’ll be getting paid serious money to appear on talk shows all over the US; i dunno sha, but how do you not know that you like men till you’re 27 and after several children and having dived several times into pussyville?? na wa oooo

    And yes another lie about the age. He is 35 right and he has a 23 year old daughter how come that means he was 12 wen he had that girl. is this possible. Just asking for clarity.
