Colombian model says eating chicken causes homosexuality, isn't clear on what causes stupidity
Colombian model Natalia Paris is stirring up controversy after she made some pretty ignorant remarks claiming that eating chicken can turn you gay. The statements were caught on camera by CaracolTV. The 39-year-old model claims that her theory comes from a report that says that chickens are being injected with female hormones. But she upset many people when she said that boys who consume this chicken are activating their feminine hormones, which in turn causes them to become homosexual.
Um, is this not the most ridiculous thing you've ever heard?!
First of all, who does Paris think she is coming out with these ridiculous theories about homosexuality? The worst part, though, is that she didn't stop there and continued making more accusations that these chickens were also affecting young girls.
The (not-so-bright) model's comments were overheard at a store meet and greet with fans in Bogota, Colombia and added that little girls"ages 7, 8, 9 and 10," were starting to go through puberty earlier because they're eating chicken injected with the hormones. The animal rights activist angered none other than the National Federation for Colombian Poultry Farmers president, Andrés Fernando Moncada, who denied her allegations.
Moncada told Blu radio that chickens in Colombia are not injected with hormones to accelerate growth, and that it was simply an "urban myth." As for her other statements, he called them "rubbish" and was outraged that such a comment would be made by a public figure.
I can't blame the president of this federation for being this upset by this model's allegations. Unless she studied the subject or has an occupation as a scientist, she shouldn't be making comments that aren't reputably supported. And to say that eating chicken can cause homosexuality is even more preposterous and ignorant! Maybe her publicist should make sure to keep the beauty queen in check before she makes anymore slanderous comments.
