James Woods: ’I am not a homophobe’

Author: Staff Reporter Updated: 10:00 17-07-2017

James Woods has fired back after being slammed for mocking an 8-year-old boy.

The actor received backlash after ridiculing a boy in a photo who appeared to be wearing makeup. (Read about that here)

Woods has since defended his comments, claiming that they're not homophobic.

"Using one's child as a social justice propaganda doll is tantamount to child abuse. This is not about homophobia. Nice try though," the actor tweeted.

He continued in a follow up tweet: "For the record I have supported human rights of all stripes and persuasions, colors, creeds, choices and preferences my entire life. Period."

"Some children can be ruthlessly cruel to children who are simply different in any way. I humbly suggest making your child a target is unwise."

"I spent my entire adult life in the New York theatre scene, kids. I have more gay friends than Liberace. So let's stop the homophobia train."

Woods concluded the conversation saying he does not care what others think of him. "And of course the final word on all of this is that I frankly don't give a shit what anybody thinks about me."
