Days after Vivica A. Fox sparked a firestorm of controversy over her homophobic remarks about gay men attending an all-male stripper revue in Las Vegas, the show’s producer has cut ties with the 90s-B-lister-turned-reality-TV-has-been.
Ms. Fox made the remarks on a morning radio program while promoting her new reality series Black Magic, a show that follows her around as she prepares to launch an all-male stripper revue in Las Vegas.
When asked if gay men were allowed to attend the show, she quickly replied, “Aw, hell no. Back all that up. No! NO!”
Her statement has pissed off the director and producer who made her male stripper reality show possible, Jean-Claude LaMarre.
LaMarre, who cast Vivica in his 2015 male stripper comedy Chocolate City and upcoming sequel Chocolate City: Vegas says, says he’s through with her and has officially cut ties with the actress.
“The comments were out of order, and it does not represent our attitudes toward the LGBT community,” he tells TMZ. “All are welcomed. Vivica speaks for herself not the business or the show.”
TMZ adds: “LaMarre will remain an Executive Producer on the reality show, and made it clear he wants ‘Black Magic’ to succeed — he just doesn’t want to work with Vivica anymore.”
