Comedian Jerrod Carmichael Comes Out As Gay

Jerrod Carmichael, comedian on HBO, came out as gay in his HBO special.

“After that was out in the open, I was left alone feeling like a liar, because I had a secret. One I kept from my father and mother, my family members, my friends, and myself. Professionally, personally. And the secret is that I’m gay,” he says, according to Variety.

“I’m accepting the love. I really appreciate the love,” he said after people clapped. “My ego wants to rebel against it.”
