Magic Johnson Stands By Gay Son (video).
Magic Johnson and his wife Cookie stand by their son EJ III in every way.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Magic continues to prove how he is a class act.
It’s not secret that Magic Johnson’s son EJ is gay. He recently went public with his boyfriend (see video below). Some father’s in the testosterone and ultra masculine sport of basketball wouldn’t be too happy about a gay son. Magic Johnson was no ordinary basketball player and is no ordinary father.
When asked about his son Magic said, “Cookie and I love EJ and support him in every way,” the Lakers legend and current Dodgers owner said. “We’re very proud of him.”
The topic of homosexuality and the NBA has been brewing for years and it is only a matter of time until we have an active NBA baller that is outwardly homosexual. Maybe it is fitting that Magic Johnson helps the NBA become more open and understanding, just like he did a couple decades ago.
