UFC fighter Sean Strickland slammed for saying having a gay son would mean he ‘failed as a man’
Controversial UFC fighter Sean Strickland has declared that if he had a gay son, he would think he had “failed as a man”.
On Monday (27 December), when a fan asked him on Twitter whether he would “rather have a gay son or a thot daughter”, Strickland responded: “If I had a gay son I would think I failed as a man to create such weakness… If I had a whore for a daughter I’d think she just wanted to be like her dad lol!!”
While Strickland obviously made himself laugh, Twitter users simply described him as “unhinged”.
Gay lawyer Ari Cohn replied: “Hate to break it to you, but you’ve already failed as a man.”
Hate to break it to you, but you've already failed as a man. https://t.co/gW0GZ9TOeD

“Man’s head is filled with mashed potatoes and doubts about his sexuality,” wrote another Twitter user.
This guy is truly unhinged. https://t.co/4em2wh48ya

But Strickland wasn’t finished, and followed up with a bizarre tweet about pronouns and “beta males”.
He wrote: “I have been getting some hate for that gay son joke.
“You beta males need to calm the f**k down, this isn’t your college you’re not going to get laid here by a ‘zir’ or ‘it’ by being a little bitch.
“It’s OK this is a safe place. Untuck your balls you’re allowed to be a ‘he’ here.”
Oh god, not only is he homophobic but he’s transphobic AND he believes in the beta and alpha male bullshit🤡 https://t.co/0Rqnr3bxxF

Sean Strickland’s comments about a gay son are the latest in a string of anti-LGBT+ tweets
Just days before he tweeted his “gay son joke”, Sean Strickland decided to try out some more comedy material on Twitter, this time about lesbians.
He tweeted: “Have you guys have ever hit on a lesbian girl before? I have, it’s F**KING HARD.
“What is your BEST pick up line when hitting on a lesbian??? ‘Hey wanna hang, I hate my father too.’
“I have never succeeded to say the least lol! Open for suggestions.”
When one Twitter user asked why he would want to “hit on” a lesbian in the first place, Strickland predictably answered: “Bro you know what’s more fun than one girl?! Two girls.”
