Keith Powers quickly became a fan favorite among the cast in the hugely successful New Edition Story, and while he’s stayed away from controversy throughout his budding career, thus far, he was hit with a bit of criticism lately for some comments he made on Hollywood Unlocked about his views on bisexuality.
It all started when the 24-year-old was asked to reveal the most ridiculous rumor he has heard about himself since making it big.
After explaining that he was once labeled bisexual by a “troll page,” he went on to say that he does not believe men can fit within that particular group, saying, “There’s such thing as bisexual for men? I think you’re either gay or you’re straight, personally.”
Take a look at the clip, below:
From there, the usually beloved actor was roasted on Twitter for his words. However, he seems to have quickly realized the impact his comments had on his fans, as he took to Twitter, soon after, to apologize, admitting that he “made a mistake.”
See how Keith first fell in love with acting in the BET video, above.
