Ne-Yo Apologizes for Saying Children Should Not Change Genders (Video)

Ne-Yo apologized profusely for a recent podcast in which he criticized parents of transgender children.

The 43-year-old singer/songwriter sat down with Gloria Velez, of VladTV, for an in-depth interview recently.

The father-of-5 said he comes from an era where there are only 2 genders. “That’s just how I rock,” he said. “Me too,” Gloria replied.

Ne-Yo disagrees with the gender ideology that is being pushed in public schools in America. He said he doesn’t care how a person identifies. “That’s not my business. It becomes my business when you try to make me play the game with you.”

“We live in a weird time,” he said. “When did the world become so sensitive?”

He also criticized parents who help their children transition.

“If your little boy comes to you and says, ‘Daddy I wanna be a girl,’ and you just let him rock with that? He’s 5. If you let this 5-year-old boy decide to eat candy all day, he’s gonna do that. Like, when did it become a good idea to let a 5-year-old, let a 6-year-old, let a 12-year-old make a life-changing decision?”

Ne-Yo continued: “He can’t drive a car yet, but he can decide his sex?”
 

Ne-Yo quickly found out that – even if he’s right, some things are better left unsaid publicly.

On Sunday, he expressed his deepest apologies on social media. Ne-Yo reminded everyone that he is a longtime supporter of the LGBT+ community.

“I’ve always been an advocate for love and inclusivity in the LGBTQI+ community, so I understand how my comments could’ve been interpreted as insensitive and offensive,’” he wrote. “Gender identity is nuanced and I can honestly admit that I plan to better educate myself on the topic, so I can approach future conversations with more empathy.”

It’s doubtful that Ne-Yo has changed his opinion about transgender ideology. But the 3X Grammy winner now knows that openly expressing his opinions can be detrimental to his career.

Freedom of speech is no longer free in America.
