ICYMI, Ginuwine is on Celebrity Big Brother. You’re guess is as good as ours why in the world he said yes to doing the show (we’re sure it has something to do with the paycheck) but we digress.

Just a few days into to the new season, the” Pony” singer had folks upset on social media after he turned down a kiss from female transgender housemate India Willoughby.

We watched the clip, Ginuwine was waaaaay nicer than most heterosexual men would have been in the scenario. Thankfully a host of other people on Twitter came to his defense and even pointed out that he may even have a case for sexual assault.


Here’s what went down.

Willoughby and Ginuwine are sitting next to each other under a furry blanket (sigh). They are engaged in conversation with the other housemates when Willoughby asks the singer: “Would you go out with a transgender?”

He answered: “I believe it’s your choice and I would choose not to.”

“You’d go out with a woman but not a transgender woman?” she continued, to which he replied: “No.”

She later adds: “I’m a woman, so you would date me then. Let’s have a kiss.”

When he said no, she responded before storming off: “I think all the unspoken things going on there illustrate my case one hundred percent.”

Malika Haqq, who also surprisingly is on this show, came to G’s defense, by saying Willoughby is just playing the victim.

What do you think? Was Ginuwine being transphobic, or simply stating his preference?
