Love & Hip-Hop star says gays should ‘burn in hell just like god said in the bible’
Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood’s Hazel-E has sort-of apologised after seemingly suggesting that all gay people should “burn in hell”.
The reality star’s boyfriend Rose Burgandy had hit out at rumours that he was gay with a homophobic post on Instagram that she appeared to support and echo.
Accompanying a picture of a burning rainbow flag, Burgandy wrote: “Im 24 bitch you really want to know how I feel about gays so bad well here you go I hope all gays die and go to hell thats where I come from [sic].
“Bitch check your lies before you post I’m from piru Bitch I’m 25 not 19 and it’s Denzell with 2 L’S Bitch google me.”
As a comment on his post, Hazel wrote: “Burn in hell just like God said in the Bible!”
Her comments predictably prompted an outcry on social media, and the post was deleted.
Hazel-E went on to give an interview with TMZ where she claimed that she had been misunderstood.

“The post that Rose made, I’m not actually justifying,” she said.
“I actually feel horrible that the LGBT community is upset with me because that was definitely not my intent to offend an entire community that (i) supports me, (ii) oh my god, my life, this hair, this make-up this glam.
“My world would fall apart without the LGBT community because they’re one of my biggest fans and supporters.”
