Vivica A. Fox has issued an apology to the LGBTQ community.
The 52-year-old says she is sorry for saying gay men were unwelcome at the star’s new male-employed Black Magic strip club during an interview with The Breakfast Club last week.
Vivica clarified her feelings in a reply to an Instagram comment that called the star out for the remark. She said: ‘I’ve been a FRIEND n supporter of the LGBT community for years! ‘My intention was not to offend anyone and I’m woman enough to apologize if you felt that way.’ She continued: ‘My show has already been taped and I was just doing something for the ladies but all are welcome to enjoy Vivica’s Black Magic Show! It’s HAWT… I’m all about LOVE not HATE dawling! Have a blessed day.’

Last week, When asked by morning hosts Charlamagne tha God and DJ Envy if gay guys would be welcome at Black Magic her response was a blunt: ‘Hell no!’ She tried to explain her reasoning, saying: ‘There’s no need… It’s called the ultimate girl’s night out for a reason.’ The director and producer of Black Magic Jean-Claude LaMarre swiftly chimed in, saying: ‘The comments were out of order, and it does not represent our attitudes toward the LGBT community. All are welcomed.’ LaMarre will no longer work with the Soul Food actress.
