Karamo Brown is at it again, saying that he’s “proud” of his “friend” Sean Spicer, Trump’s former press secretary.
Brown has previously come under fire for his relationship with Spicer, and there was so much backlash when he called Spicer a “good guy” that the Queer Eye star deleted his Twitter account.
The pair have been competing against each other on Dancing with the Stars, but Brown and his dance partner Jenna Johnson were eliminated on Monday (October 28).
According to People, after his elimination Brown said of his friendship with Spicer: “My goal coming into this was to introduce myself to people who have never seen Queer Eye, to let them know who I am.
“And also, my goal has always been to show how if you can show kindness and lead with love, things can change.
“Day one I got backlash [for supporting Spicer]. I started this show with people telling me, ‘You’re horrible, you’re crazy, you’re stupid’ because I showed someone who has a different political view than mine kindness.”
Karamo Brown said he told Sean Spicer that his comments hurt him as a gay man
He then explained the “goal” of his friendship with spicer was to plant “seeds in his heart”.
Brown said: “Through this process, Sean’s trailer has been next to mine and I have literally every day been planting seeds in his heart.
“When you made this comment, it hurt me as a man. When you made this comment, it hurt me as a person of colour. When you made this comment, it hurt me as a gay man’… And if I can touch his heart, I’m about to go through and make a tour of Washington!
“I still want Trump out of office, but you know. That was the goal [with Spicer]. That was the goal.”
He added: “Sean is literally someone who I would’ve never thought I could be friends with, and I’m going to walk away from here calling him a friend.
“I’m going to continue the conversation that we’ve had outside of this. And I don’t think Sean’s going to make it to the end [of the competition], but I’m proud of him.
“I really am proud of him, because he’s had fun every week and I think he’s exceptional.”
