Omar Gooding Makes Homophobic Comments To Man in Vegas.
Omar Gooding got into an altercation with a man who called him out for allegedly treating a restaurant employee bad because his pizza was taking too long.
The incident escalated when he went on an angry and homophobic rant around 3 AM at a food court area at Rio in Las Vegas.
In video captured by TMZ, Gooding can be seen challenging the man, who claims to be an officer, to arrest him. The actor then drops numerous F-bombs and shouts the other homophobic F-word twice. He then calls him a “retard” while security shows up to calm the situation down.
Apparently Gooding was getting pizza but began degrading the worker for taking too long with his order. That’s when the other man stepped in, setting Omar off.
According to Omar, it was late and his food was late, so “who wouldn’t be a little impatient?” He adds that apologies were handed out from all sides, including from the guy who tried to be the peacemaker, and “by no means am I a hater or homophobic.”
“My apologies for the offensive language, but that does not define who I am … we calmly communicated, worked it out and all was forgiven”, he added.
