’Ex-Gay’ Viral Video Star :: If My Newborn is Gay, I’ll Get Him Help
Antoine Dodson, who became e-famous in a 2010 viral video where he said "Hide ya kids, hide ya wife, hide ya husbands...cause they rapin’ everybody out here" during a local news report, made headlines last year after announcing he has become a Hebrew Israelite and "no longer into homosexuality." The Internet star is once again in the spotlight for saying if his newborn son is gay, he’ll do what he can to "turn" him straight.
Dodson told TMZ he believes being gay is wrong and anti-religious but would still love his son if he were to come out as gay.
"I wouldn’t be shocked because I lived that life before," he said. "I would try and get him help. Even if he couldn’t be fixed it doesn’t matter because I still support him no matter what."
Last September, Dodson announced he is no longer gay and in love with a woman.
"I just became the happiest man alive!! My beautiful Queen and I are having a baby!!" he tweeted. He also said he and his girlfriend "took two tests to be sure" she was really with child.
TMZ’s Harvey Levin asked Dodson if he was the man who impregnated his girlfriend.
"Directly impregnated that I really do love," Dodson replied, "I really do love this girl."
In June 2013, Dodson, who resides in Huntsville, Ala., wrote on Facebook that he wanted "a wife and a family, I want to multiply and raise and love my family that I create."
Dodson became a YouTube sensation after being interviewed for a local news station about his sister fighting a man off in her bed. The clip went viral and has been viewed more than 57 million times.
