Malik Yoba has been in the news for his revelation of being a “trans-attracted” man. While some praised him for coming forward and opening up about his sexuality, Yoba was also receiving criticism for using the trans experience as a way to garner attention.
What’s more, Yoba was hit with allegations of soliciting sex from a trans teen. Yoba’s accuser, Mariah Lopez Ebony, said that he solicited sex from her when she was 13 and 16 years old.
During a recent interview with The Root, Yoba was asked about the allegations and became irate. “It’s a set up. I don’t like this. We said we were going to talk about policies. I don’t appreciate this at all. This is not what we f*cking discussed. We sat for four f*cking hours. We sat for four f**king hours,” the actor yelled. “F**k you! This is my f**king life,” said Yoba before storming off.
The walkout was also seemingly triggered by questions about his motives for publishing an Instagram post that declared his love and attraction for trans women, which has since been deleted.
