It’s been quite the couple of weeks for former boxing title contender Yusaf “Mack Attack” Mack.
Aside from his gay porn past coming back to haunt him, he’s had to learn the hard way that you can’t just make up an silly story to a reporter and expect everything to smooth itself out.
In case you missed it last week, Mack had a highly implausible explanations for how he came to appear in a film produced by DawgPoundUSA.com. He said he’d been drugged and tricked into the whole debacle.
DawgPound quickly went on the defensive, releasing a statement that Mack’s accusations were as they appeared to be — a bunch of frantic backpedaling.
It didn’t take long for Mack to come clean.
He just put out his own statement in which he comes out as bisexual:
This is an issued public apology from my heart. I want to address a few situations with the first being the false claims I made about being drugged during the Dog Pound adult film. I have never spoke negatively about the company that produced the film although the claim to have been given a drug by someone during set was a lie. I was completely aware and fully conscious during the film.
The second situation, which further explain the first, concerns my lifestyle. I did participate in the adult film because at the time I needed money but also because I am a bisexual man. Meaning I enjoy safely being intimate with whomever I choose.
There are other men and women that are set up in the similar situations and I just hope I can be inspiration to be just be you. The extreme taboo and harsh criticism of living a same sex lifestyle, especially as an African American male, makes it hard to be completely honest and comfortable within yourself. But I had to remember that I am a champ & I can fight and will fight through this. I am more than my sexual orientation.
