• Booker T Reacts To Fans Accusing Him Of Being Homophobic Towards NXT Wrestler Quincy Elliott
Some fans think 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer & current NXT Commentator Booker T is being homophobic towards NXT wrestler “The SuperDiva” Quincy Elliott.
Booker addressed this situation on his podcast and said the following:
“I’ve been reading a couple of comments as of late, just because of my antics on NXT. People call me homophobic.
Okay, let’s get this straight. I’m not homophobic. I have nothing against people making their choice who they want to love, who they want to sleep with. I don’t care. That’s not my business.
But Quincy, what does he call himself? The Ultimate Diva. I have a choice if I want to like Quincy or not. I might not like Quincy today. I might like him tomorrow. Quincy might have to give me a reason to like him.
I didn’t like Goldust at the beginning. Me and Goldust turned out to be one of the greatest acts in the history of this business. I don’t think I could be homophobic and work with someone like Goldust. I really don’t.
I think that would be something that I would feel a certain way about. But I felt nothing but joy working with my friend, Goldust. I just want people to know on television, I’m doing my job. I’m not homophobic.
If I don’t like Quincy one day, I might like him the next. Then again, I might not like him at all, but that’s my choice more than anything, but it has nothing to do with his choice or the character that he’s playing or anything like that.
I’m gonna be on top of Quincy’s career as far as what he’s doing right and what he’s doing wrong as well. But I’m not going to cater to the fans who perhaps are LGBTQ and I go out acting in a certain way just for them, because of, that’s not gonna happen.
I’m treating everybody the same way pretty much. If I like him, I like him. If I don’t like him, I don’t like him, but it has nothing to do with their sexuality, or their race, or anything like that. So get that out of your mind.
So anybody that’s thinking that way, you’re thinking that way for a certain reason. It’s a certain agenda, the reason why you’re thinking that way, because I don’t formulate those thoughts in my head ever when I’m doing my job or just in my regular, everyday life, when I see a person on the street, that’s just not me.”
