The podcast host asked the actor “Were you born gay?”
Daniel Lee Bellomy, the actor who plays Ezekiel “Zeke” Cross on the hit show Power Book 2: Ghost on Starz, is receiving wide support from the public after podcasters pressured him to talk about his sex life. The controversial interview took place on the FlipDaScript podcast with QueenzFlip and DJ G$Money.
QueenzFlip initiated the awkward line of questioning when he asked Bellomy about his relationship status.
“Girls. What’s up with them?” the host asked. “You have any girlfriends.”
After the actor described himself as a “single individual,” QueenzFlip dug deeper.
Did you have any girls in school?” he asked.
Bellomy stuttered for a while before finally declining to answer. But the podcasters continued to inquire about the actor’s love life.
“Where I find myself is desiring someone who wants me and is willing to accept me for who I am,” Bellomy said as he continued to face pressure. “It’s a daily challenge.”
Still insisting on a direct answer, QueenzFlip asked the actor if he is interested in men as well.
“Were you born gay?” the host asked, yelling at the actor as he became more frustrated with the indirect answers.
The two men continued to go back-and-forth until Bellomy finally said he refuses to talk about his sex life. But the discussion continued on social media as most people showed support for the Power Book star.
QueenzFlip addressed the controversy on his Instagram page.
“THEY WANNA CANCEL ME FOR THIS?? I GUESS I COULD OF LEFT IT ALONE BUT WHERE IM FROM WE ASK TILL WE GET THE ANSWER!!” he wrote.
