If the assistant was a woman, MBJ would've been cancelled by sundown! Some people are saying it was unprofessional for him to walk around in his underwear if he knew this guy was gay. The closet thing could be crossing the line. I bet he'll be keeping his clothes on from now on! There are plenty of stunt queens out there who would totally use something like this to claim sexual harassment, even though they enjoyed it. And you will occasionally get a gay man who does not want advances from their employer, even if they are scorching hot.

R73 he’s threatening her but at the same time it seems that there was supposed to be some sexual chemistry between the characters..so he’s playing it like he’s teasing her.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I felt he was miscast as Killmonger in Black Panther. He wasn't at all believable playing that character.

He was great in The Wire and Fruitvale Station. With the right role, he soars, but his range is limited.

R77 that sista-gurl neck swirling action is very typical of black guys from the hip hop community trying to act gangsta. Watch any rapper - ice cube, etc - threatening someone in a movie and you’ll see that. Again, not saying that this doesn’t mean he’s not gay, I just don’t think that’s a sign.

I don't remember any gangsta rapper from the 90s -- especially the homophobic Ice Cube -- swirling his neck and sucking his teeth the way MBJ did in that clip. You have to post some examples. I'm an older millennial who grew up in the 90s and around Hip Hop, and I can't think of one major rapper who came off that way (not even the deeply closeted Dr. Dre).

Parents want their sons to be strong men who reproduce with females and give them grandchildren. I don’t give a damn what race you are, where you live, how much money you make or your religious affiliation: when your parents discover you’re gay, their initial reaction will be disappointment. Some will mask it, some will respond with rage and fury; some will accept it and some never will.

Urban men may acknowledge “messing around” with dudes or being sucked off, but almost never do they identify as “gay.” The word is so associated with effeminancy and unmanliness that only urban men who are flamboyant or white adjacent dare take on its profound stigma. Despite unreal expectations here, most of the world has similar views.

He talked about it on one of his recent Instagram Lives. I haven't the will to scroll though to find which one.

Mehcad Brooks has, R139?!?! Link please. I need some JO fodder.

He didn't speak at length. He said the experimentation was when he was 20/21.

Brooks and MBJ are in two different leagues acting/career wise. Brooks has even said before that he's happy to play the buff, sexy guy roles as long as he can. MBJ is one of the best actors of his age, and will be nominated and/or win an Oscar at some point.

Brooks admitting he fucked around with guys does little to affect his career. Jordan has way more to lose.

Brooks was already pictured with Mantasia, so admitting to experimentation may actually be damage control.

Even if Jordan is gay he isn't coming out anytime soon. It would damage his career with both the African American community, the white community and the ability studios have to sell him as a star oversees. He will be paired with some upcoming actress or model, she will pop out a couple of his kids and he will go on getting blown by some hunky extra.

Mechad is fairly masculine, but he has an artsy vibe that makes him less dependent on machismo identity. MBJ, though a nice guy, has a tougher badass image. His Killmonger role only increased that image.

A lot of actors are very private too, a lot of gossip about them may detract from their ability to get cast. Even straight ones may or may not disclose who they are really dating until they have been in the relationship for some time.

Mechad Brooks could fully come out as gay and it wouldn't matter. His breakout roles were on True Blood and Desperate Housewives, I'm pretty sure most of his fanbase won't care if he's a friend of dorothy. MBJ is different. Him coming out would be like Chris Evans or Tom Holland coming out.

Yeah, and why would anyone whose career depends upon projecting a certain image of conventional masculinity and strength, take on an identity that many perceive to conflict with that image?

Because the closet kills? I don't begrudge any heartthrob who makes hay while the sun shines in their teens and twenties, but once they get into their thirties it becomes pathetic and, yes, damaging. I'm not clamoring for MBJ to come out but I think everyone loses something profound when they uphold the closet.

MBJ would lose pretty much all of his fan base and marketability if he were to come out. Straight black people don't like gay men, as much as people try to claim otherwise. They'd turn on him overnight.

Things are changing. Lots of black entertainment projects have side people/characters who are gay.

I think we can all agree that he'd lose some money if he came out, and that coming out would be good for him on a personal level.

But I dont think he'd lose his *whole* career at this point. He will have all the gay dollars in his pocket for sure. He could diversify his projects and branch out into other areas of entertainment. I think studios would also approach him to make movies with gay subject matter since obviously he would be a draw.

R166 Plus as a black guy, unfortunately, he would attract less gay dollars.

It is a good idea for MBJ to diversify and get more than vanity producer credits.

Please if you all don't think someone like Denzel wouldn't step in and tell him not to do anything like this, well then you are foolish.

MBJ seems to want it all - prestige/Oscar bait, dumb Zac Efron comedies, Marvel etc. I doubt he's excited at the prospect of making a gay struggle movie. And gay struggle movies (like slave movies) are what the white mainstream want to see.

r171 I dont see why he couldn't just tag on gay struggle movies to his resume. Hell Will Smith did it in the 90s way before it was a thing

Yeah, and he refused to kiss his male love interest (on Denzel's advice). I don't think "gay" has anything to do with MBJ's career ambitions.

R91 Shad Moss/Bow Wow was raised by his mother, in conjunction with Da Brat or whichever other semi-responsible non-heartless adult was hanging around So So Def at the time.

His biological father is a neglectful alcoholic.
