Boxer Yusaf Mack Comes Out After Gay Adult Film Scandal (Video)

boxer Yusaf Mack comes out

Did you hear the one about the boxer who said he was drugged and coerced into making a gay porno, only to later recant his story and just admit that he is just gay? No? Well, you’e about to hear it.

The boxer in question is 35-year-old Philadelphia native Yusaf Mack. Last week, reports emerged that Mack had appeared in a gay porn movie. And Mack responded to those reports by saying he was drugged and forced into doing it, and that it only paid $4500.

This week, however, Mack came clean. In an interview with Fox 29, the boxer admitted right up front that he made up the story about being drugged.

“I’m gay,” he said right off the bat. “I’m tired of holding it in, it is what it is. I live my life. I’m gay.”

Unfortunately, this is where the story takes a really depressing turn. After telling the truth about himself to his family—amazingly, Mack is the father of 10 children and had been engaged to a woman for five years—not everyone was as understanding of his situation as you would hope. In fact, when he told his oldest daughter that he is gay, he says she told him to kill himself because “you embarrass us.”

Could you imagine that? Your own daughter tells you to kill yourself?

Not surprisingly, for a while Mack was considering doing just that. Fortunately, some other family members and friends, including his former fiancée, have been more supportive. So Mack is no longer suicidal, and instead feels glad to have the proverbial monkey off his back.
