It shouldn’t matter if Kerry Rhodes is gay or not, but when Rhodes came out publicly and said he wasn’t gay, he opened a Pandora’s box. In the new age of Skip media, people are going to be in your business.
There is nothing you can do to stop it, if you sneeze the wrong way, someone is going to write a story about it. There is a right way and wrong way to handle these situations.
The right way, is how Chris and Adrienne Bosh handled things when Lil Wayne and others tried to slander Adrienne’s reputation. They didn’t say anything, they kept living their lives and eventually people moved on. These days people have short attention spans, so if you just ignore them, they will find a new target to engage.
The wrong way, is to do with Kerry Rhodes did and issue a flat denial. The reason being, now people are going to go searching, for a way to expose you as a liar, even if you are telling the truth.
They come up with things like this and create Instagram pages to try to expose you.
I am 100% sure if Rhodes didn’t give a denial to TMZ, this photo never comes to light. Obviously, someone is trying to either out him or embarrass him. Either way, he needs to clam up and the problem will go away. Once again, it shouldn’t matter one way or another what his sexual orientation is, but don’t throw fuel on the trolls fire, because then it just burns longer.
