The View co-host Sherri Shepherd
has denied that she's homophobic in a new interview.
When AM Tonight host Alicia
Menendez asked Shepherd, “What is the biggest misconception about
answered: “I think people don't know my heart. I think they
feel I'm very judgmental. I think people feel I'm very homophobic.”
“Is it that you're anti-gay? What is
it that people think?”
“You grow up being a Christian and
you grow up believing homosexuality is a sin; you're going to hell if
you're a homosexual. This is something that they teach in churches.
So it's something I grew up believing.”
“I might not agree with your
lifestyle, but I love you. You may not agree with my lifestyle, but
you love me,” she said.
Shepherd added that she won't argue
that being gay is a choice.
“If you tell me, 'Sherri, I was born
gay,' okay I'm not going to argue with you, because I can't tell you
how you feel and what's going on inside,” she said.
